Enjoy Addictive Rummy Games on your PC
For Immediate Release
YPR Software has released Rummi v. 4, a full-featured, challenging collection of tile and card rummy games for Windows. Rummi lets two to four players combine strategy and luck to outwit and outplay live or computer opponents.
Rummi lets you play against up to three of your friends, on your home network or on the Internet. It also offers six computer opponents, each with different personalities and game strategies. Select your opponents' skill levels, from easy to expert, and play against one, two, or three of them.
The program offers many variations of Manipulation Rummy. The basic rules are simple: Each player is dealt 14 cards from a double deck. In turns, each player plays cards in runs (three or more cards of the same suit, in sequence) or sets (three or four cards of the same value, from different suits). You can reorder cards already on the table. If you cannot play, you draw a card from the pool. The first one to play all of their cards wins the game.
The games are easy to learn, but challenging to master. In addition to a wide selection of built-in games, the game editor lets you design your own game version, with its own set of rules. You and your friends can enjoy a game that is fun and laid-back, or intensely competitive.
Rummi comes with various sets of cards and tiles, including fantasy elements like Maya pebbles. There is a library of additional cards and tiles that you can download without charge from the Rummi web site. You can even design your own cards and tiles. The program has built-in themes, with various graphics and sounds. You can design custom Rummi themes, too, enabling you to tailor Rummi to your personal preferences.
Rummi makes it simple for beginners to get started. You can take advantage of the informative popup tips to learn the rules. You can also ask the computer to give you a hint before any play. It's easy to undo and redo your moves, and you can save games and resume them later. Rummi keeps statistics on each player. The game's interface can be set to English, German, French, or Dutch. Additional languages will be available for download, with Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese versions planned for the coming weeks.
Whether you're a seasoned Manipulation Rummy player who wants the challenge of playing against a variety of computer and live opponents, or a casual game player who wants a relaxing, low-key intellectual challenge, Rummi provides game players, young and old, with hours of fun.
