Indian Rummy is similar to other rummy games where a minimum of two players and a maximum of four, six players can play at a time. Each player gets 13 cards and generally if there are 2 or 3 players then two 52-card decks and 4 jokers (wild cards) are used while when there are four to six players than three decks of cards is used.
