    Hi fellow blackhatters,

    I am in the process of launching gaming application in facebook. (Rummygame). Its a skilled and addictive game played by majority indians. But still I could not figure out about other country.

    So, members other than India, kindly post your opinion about this game. Whether this game has been played in your country?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Edit : (16/04/2012) So far from the feedback India and Romania are playing classic rummy, where as lots US people seems to be playing Gin Rummy. My Game about to launch in 2 to 3 days. I request you to post your feedback..

    I'm in California, and my friend always suggests Rummy when we are bored with nothing to do. I say "I guess" (not "HELL YEA!") because I feel like most card games are not very fun and a waste of my time. But 3 of my friends like to play it, they are the only 3 people who I know that play Rummy though

    I am from the Netherlands too and I had to look on Wikipedia to see what sort of card game it was. I've heard some people talk about it (I think it's called "vijftigen" here) before, but I never played it.

    It's not very popular here in UK. I had never heard of it until I visited Romania with my girlfriend (she's Romanian), and everybody knows it there. She taught me and we played several times (it's known as Canasta there, or it could be a variation of Rummy).

    In Yugoslavia it's really popular especially Montenegro, when I went there, my uncle played it at least 100 times a day :D sadly he doesn't use a computer so you won't expect him to play it on facebook :) , but ye, you will probably get many people from Yugoslavia that's for sure.

    In the US most people (well I believe) play card games in order of popularity

    Solitare
    Poker
    Spades
    Gin Rummy
    Pinochle
    Bridge

    I guess most of youngsters don't know how to play Rummy in Malaysia. My mother and her sisters played it a lot when Chinese New Year. They were so addicted after CNY and kept on playing it every Sunday for few months. Yes, it's highly addictive card game. Go for it.:D
