OKLAHOMA by Oswald Jacoby


Email this review


A game belonging to the rummy family, with just enough variations to make a book devoted to it useful for clubs and public libraries, though comparatively few individuals would find it necessary. The game is played with two packs; the rules for melding are different, as are the rules for drawing from discards. The joker is used and with eight deuces is played ""wild"". The pros and cons of different plays are discussed, with Jacoby's plumping for the value of playing ""concealed"". The count and the rules are summarized.
