This version is the same as regular Rummy except that seven cards are dealt to each player and the following special rules are observed:
A player may not meld until he can go rummy. When the player goes out, he may meld seven or eight cards, so that he need not discard (unless the discard helps him to go out.)
The winner collects the point value of his hand from every opponent. He does not collect the value of his opponents' hands, and is never paid double.
