Polish Rummy

Polish Rummy is by far my most favorite card game. It's basically Phase 10 but with a regular pack of cards. When I was 18, 19 and 20 I was dating this boy named Justin. We were very close friends with this older lady, Terry - I mean, she wasn't that much older than us - maybe 15 years older or so. We used to spend our days sitting around her dining room table playing Polish Rummy, smoking and drinking (on occasion). I really believe that those were some of the best times in my life. I've taught a few people the game since then, but it doesn't exactly have the same allure as it did then... maybe because those people just didn't understand the awesomeness of the game. I was really excited when I figured out what is pretty much the secret to winning the game.
And that, my dears, is my favorite card game.
