The object of the game is to collect a hand where most or all of the cards can be combined into sets or sequences of consecutive cards. Keep the point value of the remaining unmatched cards as low as possible. A card can only be used for one combination at a time. You can’t use the same card as part of a set of equal cards or a sequence of consecutive cards at the same time. Note that in Gin Rummy the Ace is always low. A-2-3 is a valid sequence but A-K-Q is not.
