What are the different types of Games of Rummy on Ace2Three?
The following variants of Classic Indian Rummy are offered as type of Games on Ace2Three:
  • 101 Pool
    The 101 Pool game can be played between as few as 2 players and as many as 6 players. After every round, the scores are updated. The player who makes a successful Show gets 0; the players who do not make successful Shows get a score that is equal to the sum of the Values of their cards that are not a part of a valid Life or Set. These scores get added up after the end of every Round. A player is eliminated once his score is 101 or more.
  • 201 Pool
    The 201 Pool game can be played between as few as 2 players and as many as 6 players. After every round, the scores are updated. The player who makes a successful Show gets 0; the players who do not make successful Shows get a score that is equal to the sum of the Values of their cards that are not a part of a valid Life or Set. These scores get added up after the end of every Round. A player is eliminated once his score is 201 or more.
  • Best of 3
    The Best of 3 game is played between 2 players and consists of a maximum of 3 Rounds. After every round, the scores are updated. The player who makes a successful Show gets 0; the player who does not make a successful Show gets a score that is equal to the sum of the Values of his cards that are not a part of a valid Life or Set. The player with the lower score at the end of 3 Rounds wins.

    The maximum score for a Round is 80. Therefore, if the difference between the scores of the two players after 2 Rounds is more than 80, there is no way the player with the higher score can win. Hence, the player is declared the winner with only 2 Rounds having been played.
For Example,
Score at end of Round 1: Player 1 => 23, Player 2 => 0
Score at end of Round 2: Player 1 => 82, Player 2 => 0
At the end of Round 3, Player 2 can have a maximum score of 80. However, Player 2 would still win. Therefore, the 3rd Round is not necessary and the Game ends in 2 Rounds.
What is a Drop?
Players can choose not to play a particular Round before Drawing the first card. This action is termed as Drop.

If a player Drops in 101 Pool, the score is 20.
If a player Drops in 201 Pool, the score is 25.
A player cannot Drop in Best of 3.
What is a Middle Drop?
Players can choose not to play after a Round starts by neither Drawing nor Discarding any cards. This action is termed as Middle Drop.

If a player does a Middle Drop in 101 Pool, the score is 40.
If a player does a Middle Drop in 201 Pool, the score is 50.
A player cannot make a Middle Drop in Best of 3.
