Thank you for watching! Please remember that these are The Lone Cardman’s house rules, and may differ from your own. With that said, be sure to share how you play in the comments below! Here are a few rule and scoring variants:

-I play that Aces are worth 11 points. Many people play with Aces being worth 1 point.
-Typically Aces are low. Some people play that Aces can be either low or high. When Aces are played low, they are worth 1 point, and when they are played high they are worth 15 points.
-I play that a run stops at the King, but some people like playing “around the corner”. When this is allowed, players can go J,Q,K,A,2,3 and so on.
-I play that a player who goes gin earns 20 points plus the value of deadwood in the defending player’s hand. Some people play that going gin earns 25 points.


  1. Can an Ace be used with a king and queen to make a run?

  2. Someone kept talking to me about poker and I'm like listen buddy, I play gin.

  3. The knocking is what I'm so confused 😕 about.

  4. Player knocks, each player has 1 deadwood card. The non knocking player can match his deadwood card to one of the knockers meld. That leaves the knocker with 1 deadwood card and the non knocker with no deadwood cards. How is that scored?

  5. See some different rules and ways for scoring up in the description.

  6. After listening to three videos I finally get it

  7. So basically the same as gin rummy, but no knocking, correct?

  8. This is the most concise video yet. Very well done 'o teacher. LOL – RWF

  9. thank you for teaching me how to play!!! i appreciate you making this video sir

  10. Thanks for the video. Just wondering why the bottom player got zero points despite having several melds.
