How to Play
In Jungle Gin HD, you compete to fill your hands with “runs” and “sets” in order to create a lower hand than your opponent.
Each turn, you draw and discard cards to build your runs and sets and to reduce the point value of your deadwood – the cards that don’t fit into either category.
To win, players must compete across multiple games to reach the required points for the overall match.
Take notice on which cards your opponent is taking from the discard pile. That will give you a clue on what melds he is making, and help prevent you from handing over the game winning card.
Focus on discarding un-melded cards with higher point totals so you don’t get caught with lots of points in your hand.
Try to knock early to catch your opponent with a lot of high-valued cards in their hand to you can score a lot of points.
You can move the cards around in your hand to help you plan your melds better.
If you need to brush up on gin rummy rules, just press the “?” button in the top-left corner of the game for a complete overview.
