Playing the Game of Kalooki

Kalooki is a card game based on melds. It is fun and interesting once you figure out the basic rules. However, the rules may be rather different from other traditional card games that you are familiar with. So if you interested in learning more about the game of Kalooki, perhaps you may find this article useful. Here is how to play a game of Kalooki.
The game starts out by distributing 13 cards to each player. The remaining cards are then left on the stock pile. The game requires 2 to 6 players, so you can’t play this game alone. You have to involve your family and friends.
Each player will have his or her turn. During a turn, a player must draw a card either from the stock pile, or the discard pile. The turn must end with the player discarding some cards on the discard pile. The basic rules of the game revolve around melds. You can only discard cards when they form melds. Melds are card combinations that allow you to discard the cards in your hands. The goal is to be the first player to finish discarding all the cards in your hands.
As you can imagine, each player will be trying to figure out the best way to discard all the cards they have. Remember, you can only discard cards only if there is an available meld (combination) for you to do so.
Like all card games, there are various strategies you can use to beat the competition. In Kalooki, two common strategies used are “Hunt” and “Going out”. Using the Hunt strategy, the player holds on to the cards in his or her hands. When the other players start to have lesser cards as they continue to discard their cards, that also means that it gets harder and harder for them to form melds. That is when the Hunt player strikes. The Hunt player will then discard melds all at one go, easily overtaking all the other players. This is a very popular strategy because there is an element of surprise.
The Going Out strategy is the reverse of the Hunt strategy. That means the player gradually discard cards one at a time until all the cards have been discarded. This strategy is less exciting, but it’s highly effective as well. Ultimately, the strategy that a player chooses depends on the hand that the player is dealt with. A skilled Kalooki player will know which strategy to use based on the cards that he or she is holding.
The game of Kalooki is not often mentioned in social gatherings. Therefore, many people still don’t know about this fun card game. But there are signs of the rising popularity of the game of Kalooki. So be sure to learn how to play this game so that you won’t be left out in the next social gathering!
