Game summary, how to play
Pan or Panguingue (pan-ginn'-gay) is a form of rummy played in some Nevada casinos and California poker clubs. The game is played using eight decks with all eights, nines and tens removed. One deck is stripped of one complete set of spades. There are 310 total cards in play. Aces are always low; there are no jokers.
How to play Pan: players strive to Meld eleven cards in valid sets of three or more cards. There are two types of Melds.
- Rope: Examples: A-2-3-4-5 or J-Q-K. Ropes must be of matching suits.
- Square: Examples: 3-3-3, or Q-Q-Q. Squares consisting of the ranks 2,3,4,5,6,7, Jack or Queen must be either all cards of different suits or all of the same suit. Squares consisting of Kings or Aces qualify regardless of suit.
