In this version of rummy each player is trying to sequentially work their way down a list of contracts. The first one to reach the bottom is the winner. This is also known as Frustration rummy because you can get hung up at one of the contracts for several rounds while the other players advance. It comes with 4 different coloured metal pegs to keep track of the score. There is a compartment on the back to store the pegs in. The board is 6.5" by 9".
