Important Call Break Card Game Rules

These are the main callbreak rules that you should remember.

  1. Spade is the trump suit of the game.
  2. A spade card will defeat any card of other suits– no matter the rank. For example,  2 of Spade has more power than Ace of any other suit.
  3. The game is played in 5 rounds. The players take turns to deal the card. Usually, each player picks a random card from the deck to decide the first dealer. The one who gets the lowest card should shuffle and deal the first round in clockwise direction.
  4. The player sitting left to the dealer should make the first call. However, in some parts of Nepal, the game is played counter clockwise direction. So, the player right to the dealer starts the game.
  5. The dealer makes the last call.
  6. A set is completed when each player throws one card each. The player with highest card wins the set. The winning player collects the cards in each set. The total number of cards is counted at the end of the round to determine the points. Usually, the game is won after 5 rounds. Players can also decide the number of rounds with mutual understanding.
  7. When a player throws a card, the other player must throw a higher card of the same suit. If they don’t have a higher value card of the same suit, they are free to throw any card of the same suit.
  8. When a player doesn’t have any card of the suit being played, he must throw a spade card. If he doesn’t have any spade card, he can then throw any card of his choice.
  9. A round should be re-dealt in the following cases: a) If one of the players doesn’t get any spade suit (trump) card. b)  If one of the players doesn’t get any face card (J, Q, K, A) of any suit. c) The sum of the individual calls (bet) is less than 8.

Why Is The Game Called Call Break?

Call break is a game of collecting the highest amount of points in the defined number of rounds. Since players receive negative points if they fail to reach their called bet, trying to break opponents’ Call is one of the winning strategies of this game. If someone gets negative points, it’s very hard to recover. So, in a game, other players often use tricks to break the call of the leading player. The game is called Call Break because of this strategy. The negative marking feature of the game appeals even to experienced players.

How To Play Call Break Card Game– Game Play, Game Economics, and Objectives

Call break is a 52-cards game. It is played among four players. Each player gets 13 cards each, in each round. It is a turn-based game. In Nepal and some parts of India, the game is played in an anti-clockwise direction. However, these days, the game is also played in the clockwise direction similar to other card games. It is also called call bridge in some part of India.Our call break app uses a clockwise turn.
The game starts when a dealer distributes the cards turn-by-turn to every player. The player with highest points wins the game.
TRUMP CARD: Spade suit is the trump card in every call break game.

How to play callbreak game step-by-step:

Selecting Dealer in Call Break

The first dealer is usually selected by picking a card from the deck. Each player picks one card, and the player with the lowest value card deals the first round. The first dealer can also be selected by flipping a coin or randomly.
The player sitting left to the dealer has to deal the card in the next round. Each player takes turns to deal the cards.
The dealer has to deal the card one at a time to each player until everyone receives 13 cards.re to change this text.

Call and Card Confirmation

When all the cards are dealt, the player sitting left of the dealer starts the call. Call is the possible number of hands one can win in a round. Players should hide the cards from each other because call break is a game of tricks and deceits.
All 4 players strategically call the number of sets they think they can win in the round. The minimum amount of calls is 1. So, no matter what kind of card you get, you must at least call 1 point.  Remember, if you bet (call) higher, there is the risk of negative points.
After everyone makes their bet, the sum of the call is calculated. If the total call is less than 8, the cards are re-dealt.
Also, if someone didn’t receive a Face card (J, Q, K, A) of any suit, they can ask the dealer to redistribute the cards. The cards are also redistributed if any one of the players doesn’t get a spade card of any rank.

The Game Play

The first card is thrown by the player sitting next to the dealer. If you are playing in Nepal or some part of India, the first bet is made by the player sitting counter clockwise to the dealer. In other places and in call break apps or online call break games, the game is started from the left-hand side of the dealer.
The first person can play card of his choice. The following players then should place the same suit card of higher value than the lead card. For example, if the first player throws ‘9’ of Hearts, the next player should throw ‘10’ or higher card of Hearts, and the third player should also throw a higher card of the Hearts, and so on.  If the subsequent player doesn’t have a higher card, he can throw any card. But, the card should be of the same suit.
However, if any player doesn’t have the suit being played, he can throw a spade card. The spade card triumphs over any cards of other suits. Furthermore, if the players don’t have a trump suit as well, they can throw any card of their choice.
When a trick is won, the player who wins the set starts the next bet by throwing a card of his choice.
The game set continues until all 13 cards are played. When all cards are played, it is called a round. The points are then calculated. We will talk about the points in the game economics.

Objective of Call Break Card Game

The main objective of each player is to get the most points at the end of 5 rounds. The players should always try to win the exact number or higher number of sets as per the Call at the start of the round.
For example, if a player called 3 on the round, he should win at least 3 sets. Otherwise, he will get a score of ‘-3’.

Game Economics – Evaluation Of Points

When all the 13 cards are played, one round is completed. Points are calculated at the end of each round. The points are evaluated based on the number of calls they make at the start of the round. Points are equivalent to the calls. If a player wins a lower number of sets than the Call, he gets negative points equivalent to the Call. If someone scores more sets than their call, they get extra 0.1 points for each extra set they win.
For example, if player A calls 3 and wins 3 sets, he gets 3 points. If player B calls 4 and wins 6 sets, he will get 4.2 points (4+0.1+0.1). If player C calls 4 as well but wins only 2 sets, he will get -4 points.
When a round is complete, the points are evaluated and allocated to the players. Whoever gets the highest points at the end of the game, wins the game. The game can be 5 rounds long, or as long as the players want.
Many online callbreak games or apps limit a game of call break to 5 rounds.

Winner’s Prize 

In Nepal and India, people usually play call-break on festivals like Dashain and Tihar with close friends and family. So, the game can also be played for money.
Unlike other card games, where you can bet unlimited cash, the prize is decided beforehand in a call break game.
The winner takes all the prize money.
The players placed second, third, and fourth have to give money to the winning player. The fourth rank gives the highest amount of cash.
Suppose a game’s price is set to 20 bucks. The winner will get 20 bucks from the second player, 40 bucks from the third player, and 80 bucks from the last player. So, the winner will get total cash of 140 bucks.

Is Playing Online Rummy Legal In India?

Yes! Rummy and the games offered on this website are games of skill and are completely legal. Almost all laws in relation to gambling in force in the states of India provide that they shall not restrict games of skill.

Under these laws, gambling relates to wagering and betting on games of chance and uncertain events where chance is a dominant factor.

Further, in the year 1968, the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India ruled that rummy cards games is a skill based game and its decision has been relied on in various subsequent judgments. We have taken utmost care to ensure that we do not step onto the wrong side of the law and all our games are in compliance with the laws currently enforced in India under legal act of Hon’ble Supreme Court.

In another judgment in 1996, the Hon’ble Supreme Court also stated that (i) competitions where success depends on substantial degree of skill are not “gambling” and (ii) despite there being an element of chance, if a game is preponderantly a game of skill it may be called a game of “mere skill”.

However, in certain states, such as Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Assam, Odisha, Nagaland & Sikkim, the laws applicable to gambling do not provide a clear exemption to playing games of skill. We do not offer our facilities of rummy games to players from these states.

Law States:
Applicable laws in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Assam, Odisha, Nagaland & Sikkim may result in penalties being imposed on players, who access the Services from these states. We do not accept applications from players from those states for participating in any game or competition available on the Website.

Rummy 777 Tips And Tricks To Win

Tips On How to Win 13 Cards Rummy
If you are looking for ways to make your 13 card rummy game better, then you are at the right place. The fact is the more you play the better you become at the game. But our tips will help you stay a step ahead of all the other players. Play better to Win More!

Techniques for Winning at Rummy Game Every Time:

  • Get your priorities right and this means melding a pure run is important. Once you have this, you can start concentrating on other things.
  • Be alert and observant about what other players are doing. What other players discard to and pick from the open cards pile will give you a good idea about their game. This way you always know the right card to retain or discard
  • Always try and get rid of cards with higher points. This is to ensure that if an opponent makes a show before you do, your deadwood points are reduced.
  • Remember a run can have more than 3 cards. This is a fact that many players do not know.
  • Always look out for and gather smart cards. These are cards that can be easily melded into a run. For example, 7 of any suit can be put together with 5 & 6 of the same suit and can also work with 8 & 9 of the same suit.
  • Jokers are important in the game of rummy and you need to focus on making the best use of jokers in your game. Always use the joker card to complete a run or set of higher points value. One more thing is to try and not use joker in a natural run.
  • Waiting endlessly for a particular card to meld a run is not a wise thing to do. You need to constantly look at your cards and keep reevaluating them to make changes.
  • When you are arranging your cards, do it in a way that makes it easy to play. One way to do that is to alternate the colors. This way you will not be confused when it comes to availing or discarding a card.
  • Do not retain cards for too long. The smart thing to do is keep on discarding cards that are not being used as soon as possible especially if their points value is high.

Tricks for Winning at Rummy
We all know that winning at rummy is about developing the skills to play. The skills you require for playing Indian rummy online include the skill to evaluate your cards & use them to the best advantage and also being aware of what your opponents are up to. You can be sure that a good opponent will do the same thing. You can trick him/her/them by using some of the following tricks:

  • While taking cards from the open pile for a sequence, you should be aware of the fact that you are leaving a clue for your opponent/s about your game. You can confuse them by throwing a card (that you may have two of) that is part of the sequence.
  • You can also trick your opponent in to providing you with cards that you require. This can work when you are actually looking for a card to form a set. For instance, you are melding a set of three Jack Cards and you have Jack of Hearts & Clubs, then discarding a queen of Spades will confuse your opponent who may then discard a Jack of Spade, which is what you want! This process of misleading and getting your opponent to throw the card you want is called baiting and fishing.

*The above given card game tips and tricks or strategy are to be used as guidelines and do not promise that you will win the game. Classic Rummy takes no responsibility for any adverse outcomes resulting from following these Tips.

Our girls has been at this nursery for 12 months now. It's her 3rd nursery in 3 years and we couldn't be happier. They are very accommodating with our odd working hours. The teachers and teachers assistants really knows our girl. Great interaction and communication with parents through email and apps. Tons of photos for us to see what activities they get up to. They have great advice and guide us as 1st time parents. Very thankful we found them. Thanks for helping us raise our Sofia as best we can.

I fell in love with this nursery because of the family spirit and the lovely people who have been working there. I hope this won’t change with the recent transformation (KIDO). I have seen my daughter developing further her confidence and skills since she was 4 months old. Miss Lucia - her first teacher - has been a critical element in 1) my decision to unroll in Safari kid, 2) my daughter’s growth and happiness. I was impressed by her professionalism and kindness. Keep up the good work with the team. We- as many other parents - feel very grateful!
