You may only knock if you end up with 10 or fewer points of deadwood human cards count as 10, aces as 1 and other cards their numeric values.
The card you knock with put facedown on the discard pile is not included in that number. Knocking with no deadwood, i. Going Big Gin is when you have 11 cards in melds, in which case you can say you have Big Gin and the game ends without you discarding the final card facedown.
The game also ends if neither player has knocked and there are only two cards left in the deck. In that case the hand is a tie, and neither player gets any points.
Scoring is based on deadwood and bonuses, the actual melds don't actually count for anything, they're only good to minimize your deadwood.
I'm sure there are plenty of people who prefer other rules, but you can never please everyone and these are the rules I'm going with. This online version of Gin Rummy was made by me.
My name is Einar Egilsson and over there on the left is my current Facebook profile picture. Gin Rummy is a game I've been playing a lot lately with my son.
I used to play a lot of Rummy when I was younger, but I prefer Gin Rummy now, and it's also a bit easier to create because you can't lay down melds all the time, which makes programming it simpler: I hope you enjoy the game!

A word for both Sets and Runs. One, as mentioned above, is when the stock has been depleted twice. The other is when the game detects that none of the players will be able to finish their hands.
This can for example happen when all players have only one card left, and there are no possible lay offs on the melds on the table.
When there's a stalemate all players get 0 points, and the game is considered a loss for all of them in the statistics. The way people handle this in real life varies greatly, but I've chosen this simple method here to avoid complications around two or more players having the same number of points etc.
