Playing card games, a sin?

November 14, 2016 News  No comments

It’s amusing how people have been falling for this trap for years. Aren’t there some elders in our families who antagonise card games? Don’t they scream with aghast when they see us playing any card games? Have you ever wondered why they have this visceral antipathy towards card games?

In case wondering what might be the reason behind associating card games with stigma, it is because the people critical of card games consider them as a vice, an embodiment of evil, name it as gambling.  Many people remain blinded by this belief that playing the card game is unethical and deem them as a gateway of bad omens. Unfortunately, this dim opinion about card games has been passed on for generations without having the slightest knowledge about the game.

To support their claim, they will cite some historical references like Mahabharata epic where gambling in a dice game resulted in a war that brought a catastrophe. While this might be true to some extent as far as gambling goes, does it sound sensible to equate all card games with gambling? And are dice games and card games one and the same?

There are quite a few card games like poker where gambling, betting takes the centre stage. But those are games where chance plays a bigger role superseding the skills. It can be postulated that games like Poker, Teenpatti are also skill based but practically you cannot undermine the role chance plays in such games.

Card games like Rummy are purely skill based. As we have mentioned many times, chance has nothing to do with rummy games. It is the strategies and tricks that you deploy during the course of the game, that determine your winning chances. You can even refer the popular tips collected from all rummy players in this blog. Unlike poker, where the rules are complex and tedious, rummy is fairly a simple game with straightforward rules. This is one of the main reasons why many players all over India choose online Rummy ahead of other card games.

We have also mentioned about the legality of playing online rummy games. If the game is illegal, we wouldn’t see players swarming many rummy sites in huge numbers to play. Rummy is similar to games like Chess, Puzzles, and Sudoku which helps to groom the intellect in us. The game finds its application in the learning arithmetic as well. A lot of factors like simple maths, probability, permutation, and combination come into play unknowingly. Just like other games where we see gripping contents, rummy can be as gripping and spellbinding when played between talented players.

Rummy games are extremely rewarding when compared to other games considering the limited effort you are required to put in. DeccanRummy offers several exciting offers & promotions to our players that they never look beyond us. You can check our existing promotions by clicking the promotions tab on our website.

So, the next time when someone complains about playing rummy – simply shrug your shoulders nonchalantly and make them read our blog entries. Assume the role of a preacher and preach to those who want to banish card games from their houses altogether.
