5 Shopping Tips for An Awesome Black Friday

Black Friday is always an awesome time to grab yourself a bargain or two, but did you know that        you can save yourself even more money if you simply implemented some shrewd tips into that all-important shopping strategy? Here are 5 shopping tips to have yourself an awesome Black Friday this year:

  1. Start Your Shopping a Little Early

Nowadays, Black Friday offers usually begin before the day itself arrives. That’s why you should take advantage and capitalize on the opportunity as soon as you can. This is also because hot ticket items are likely to sell out quickly, especially in light of the problems that are occurring in global supply chains for goods. Take a look at your favorite retailers to see when their Black Friday offers actually kick off.

  1. Shop Online

In these most unusual of times, more and more people are choosing not to shop at traditional brick-and-mortar stores, and are doing their Black Friday shopping online instead. It’s highly likely that your favorite retailers will have their Black Friday offers available to consumers via their websites. Not only will you avoid potentially exposing yourself to illness in light of the ongoing global pandemic, but you might avoid the crazy crowds fighting over hot ticket items that have become synonymous with Black Friday!

  1. Use Websites and Apps to Track Prices

Websites and shopping apps can be very handy when it comes to tracking prices at various retailers in the run up to Black Friday. Check out the consumer reports website in your country (if such a thing exists) to see prices for various products at various retailers. Other websites you can take a look at include Google Shopping, PriceGrabber and Shopzilla. Smartphone apps such as BuyVia, Shopkick and ShopSavvy allow you to scan barcodes or QR codes to compare prices, get discounts and store coupons.

  1. Use Social Media

Find out about exclusive Black Friday deals and promotions via the Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds of your favorite retailers. It’s quite common nowadays for retailers to reward customers who like or follow their special Black Friday alerts. You’ll likely be able to gain access to exclusive discounts and incentives by doing this. What’s more is that you can share Tweets and posts with your bargain-hunting friends and family to spread the shopping intel you gain.

  1. Create a Budget and Stick to it

It’s easy to get swept up in all the excitement when doing some Black Friday shopping, leading you to overspend. It’s a trick of retailers to get you to spend more than you were intending to, so make sure you decide ahead of time just how much you want to spend, and do your utmost to resist buying things on impulse. The latter is especially important if you’re not all that sure about how good a deal it is you’re getting. If you’re shopping online, you should know that many retailers offer things such as a double manufacturer’s warranty when using a credit card to pay, so also consider fringe benefits such as these.

  1. BONUS - What to Do While You Wait – Gin Rummy Super!

If you’re itching to start shopping, but still have to wait a little, a great way to kill some time is to play Gin Rummy Super! We’re super proud of our mobile game, and would love for you to share in the fast-paced and fun action available on it.

5 Major Variants of Rummy

Regardless of whether you’re playing online or offline, rummy is a card game that always provides plenty of entertainment. It has a set of thrills that are all its own, but did you know that there are tons of different variants of rummy, which fall into no less than five major variant groups? Let’s take a look at 5 major variants of rummy:

  1. Indian Rummy

Although it varies very little from original rummy, the differences between the two card games are significant. Indian rummy involves making sets, or melds, out of 13 cards given to each player taking part in the game.

Indian rummy is actually a combination of 500 rummy and gin rummy, which are both outlined below. Indian rummy is played with two decks of cards. The jokers in said decks are included, with one being selected at random, and the other being a printed card from the deck.

It’s a simple form of rummy to play, but there’s no denying that Indian rummy has its own set of challenges. It’s enjoyed by millions of people around the world.

  1. Dummy Rummy

Dummy rummy originated in the United States, although it is played in many parts of the world today. The card game consists of between two and four players, and uses two standard decks with four jokers for a total of 108 cards in play.

The number 2 cards in each deck are valued as wild card jokers. The key differences between dummy rummy and other kinds of rummy are the variety of combinations in the game, as well as the number of melds required, which is 12 as opposed to the usual 13. Players who cannot form a proper meld in a given hand get the opportunity to form one in the following hand.

  1. 500 Rummy

Also known as pinochle rummy or Michigan rummy, 500 rummy is played with between two and eight players. In most variants of rummy, points carry a negative value, but in 500 rummy, things are different – the first player who scores 500 points or more is the winner, hence the name.

Another key difference is that there’s no restriction on players in regard to which card they draw from the deck – players are usually restricted to drawing the top-most card from the pile. They can also take more than one card in order to reach a card that they need lower down in the pile. This particular difference means that there’s an added level of complexity to 500 rummy, requiring players to strategize a little more than they’d normally have to.

  1. Oklahoma Rummy

Yet another popular variant of rummy is Oklahoma rummy. It’s played by two to four players using a standard 52-card deck, together with a randomly-selected joker. If there are two players playing, they are dealt 10 cards each; if there are three or more, then they are deal seven cards each.

An Ace in Oklahoma rummy is valued at one point, whereas the face cards have a valued of 10 points each. The number cars have a value equal to their number. Players have to meld their cards as part of the game, and can get rid of their cards when they do so. The first player to get rid of all their cars wins the game.

  1. Gin Rummy

It is said that gin rummy is the easiest version of rummy, making it accessible to those who’ve never played a rummy game before. It’s played with a standard 52-card deck, and is a favorite in Europe. It’s exclusively a two-player game, with each player getting 10 cards that must be melded into at least three card sequences or sets. There’s only one restriction placed on the players, which is the sequences must all be of the same suit.

The 5 Best Card Games for the Whole Family

With the winter months knocking on our door (if you live in the Northern Hemisphere anyway!), it’s inevitable that we’ll all be spending more time indoors. Those of us who are parents will be thinking of ways to keep our young whippersnappers entertained on those long, dark nights. Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a series of the best card games for the whole family. Let’s take a closer look:

 

  1. Snip Snap Snorem

Introduction

The popular (and somewhat noisy) card-matching game is perfect for playing with young children, as well as mixed age groups. It’s played with a minimum number of three players, and suitable for ages four and up.

Cards

Snip Snap Snorem is played with a standard 52-card deck of cards.

Dealing

The entire deck of cards is dealt out to the players (it doesn’t matter if some players get more than others).

Gameplay

The player to the left of the dealer starts by placing a card face-up on the table. The next player looks to see if they have a card of the same rank. If they do, they place it down on top of the first player’s card and say “snip”. They can continue to play if they have yet another card of the same rank by placing the card face-up on the pile and saying “snap”.

If they’re unable to play, the turn goes to the next player, and so on and so forth. The player that places the final card of that rank says “snorem”, earning the right to start the next round of gameplay with the card of their choice. Your kids will soon catch on to the fact that it’s best to lead with a card which they have more than one of a kind. 

 

  1. Pig

Introduction

Pig is a fun party game that children will love. It’s fast-paced, challenging and will keep them on their toes. If you’re not going to play it tonight, this game is definitely one for their next birthday party!

Cards

Pig is played with a standard 52-card deck of cards, however each player will also need a pen. Also, three cards with the letters P, I and G written on them respectively.

Dealing

The dealer sorts out the deck of cards into piles of four of a kind (eg. 9,9,9,9; 5,5,5,5) – one for each player. The remainder of the cards are discarded. The dealer then shuffles the cards thoroughly and deals until each player has four cards.

Gameplay

The aim of the game is to collect four of a kind, but players must choose which cards they want to collect and discard what they don’t want, face-down. The discarded card is passed to the player to their left, who also discards a card to the next player to the left, and so on.

As soon as a player collects four of a kind, they must put a finger on their nose immediately. When another player sees them do this, they too put a finger on their nose, even if they don’t have four of a kind. The last player to notice the others doing so gets the letter “P” given to them.

The game continues as detailed above until one player receives all three letters, namely the P, the I and the G. The last player in play wins the game.

 

  1. Beggar my Neighbor

Introduction

Beggar my Neighbor is a fun card game that’s perfect for kids to learn basic counting skills. It required a lot of concentration but it is a thoroughly good time.

Cards

If the game is played by two or three players, then it can be played with a standard 52-card deck. However, if there any more than three players, you will need to play the game with two decks.

Dealing

All the cards are dealt around the group one by one until there are none left.

Each player collects their cards in a face-down pile without looking at them. The person to the left of the dealer places their top card face-up in the center of the table.

Gameplay

The game moves around clockwise, with each player adding one card to the central pile until an Ace, Jack, Queen or King turns up.

The player who places one of these cards on the pile can then demand payment from the next player. Aces earn four cards, Kings earn three cards, Queens earn two cards and Jacks earn one card.

These “payment” cards are also placed on the central pile. The last player who turns up an Ace or court card has to take the whole central pile and puts it at the bottom of their own. This player gets to start the next round, and the game starts again. The player who goes out first by using up all their cards is the winner.

 

  1. Rolling Stone

Introduction

This card game that’s played with between four and six players, and is perfectly suited to kids aged six and up, can be a whole lot of fun, but frustrating too – you can find yourself starting over when you’re just about to win!

Cards

Rolling Stone is played with a standard 52-card deck. If there are six players playing, the two cards are removed. If five players are playing, the two, three and four cards are removed. If four players are playing, the twos, threes, fours, fives and sixes are removed.

Dealing

The players cut the deck between them, and the recipient of the highest cards deals all the cards around the group in a clockwise direction until each player has eight cards.

Gameplay

The player to the dealer’s left begins, and can play any card. The next player to play must follow suit. The game continues like that until a player is unable to follow suit. If this occurs, the player must pick up all the cards played so far, and add them to their hand. That player then starts a new round and can lead with any card.

If everyone manages to follow suit, the player that played the highest card collects the trick but places it in a discard pile. These cards don’t count as part of the player’s hand, so the only advantage to winning a trick is the ability to lead with the suit of their choice to start the next round. The player who gets rid of all their cards first is the winner.

 

  1. Gin Rummy Super

Introduction

Part of the big family of Rummy card games, Gin Rummy can trace its origins back to 1909, when it was invented by a father-and-son duo living in New York City. It became a hugely popular throughout the Roaring Twenties, before declining in the 1930s and having a resurgence in 1940s Hollywood.

Cards

Gin Rummy is played with a French deck of 52 cards. The cards are ranked as follows: King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace.

In terms of their points value in the game, an Ace is worth 1 pointthe numbered cards have their nominal values, and face cards are worth 10 points each.

Also keep in mind that an Ace can only be melded with a 2 card.

Dealing

Players receive 10 cards each, with the rest forming the stock that is used for players to take cards and discard them. One card of the deck is turned face-up and placed close to the stock. When a player takes a card from the pile, they can get rid of one of the cards they hold.

Gameplay

The main objective of the game is to combine card sets from the suit, or the same rank. Players attempt to meld as many cards as possible.
