GIN RUMMY CHALLENGE
Version 6.0, February 1991
For IBM PC/XT/AT/PS Systems, Compatibles, And Clones

John Scarne's "Encyclopedia Of Card Games" (Harper & Row) recognizes Gin
Rummy as America's most popular two-handed card game.

Gin Rummy Challenge (RUMMY) is a dynamic and elegant way to play Gin Rummy
against a resident expert (your computer), or against another human player
via modem-to-modem communications between two computers. A Hayes-compatible
modem is necessary only for modem-to-modem play. A mouse device is optional.

RUMMY runs on color (CGA/EGA/VGA), black-&-white, or monochrome video
displays in DOS modes CO40/80, BW40/80, and MONO. Of course, color is the
preferred mode of operation. From the DOS command prompt or from a batch
file, you should start RUMMY with command syntax appropriate for your video
capabilities.

Color: Black-&-White: Monochrome:
[MODE {CO40|CO80}] [MODE {BW40|BW80}] [MODE MONO]

All of the instructions and help you will need are contained within the
program. The simplest way to play the game is to use a MOUSE or the
and keys to signal your Gin Rummy draw/discard decisions. Be
sure to read the help screens, which are available whenever the message
"Press For Help" appears on a game screen.

If you have a color video display (CGA/EGA/VGA), you will find that playing
in ZOOM mode is preferable after you have familiarized yourself with the
features of the game. ZOOM mode may be enabled whenever the message "Press
To ZOOM" appears on the game screen.

A sample game save/resume file (RUMMY.GS4) has been included. Simply delete
this file in order to start your own game save/resume file. If you have a
save/resume file (RUMMY.GS3) from a previous version of RUMMY, you must
rename it as RUMMY.GS4 in order to use it with V6.0.

Numerous improvements suggested by users of V5.0 have been implemented in
V6.0. Enhancements and changes were made in the following functional areas:
option to examine discards and deck at end-of-hand, computer's playing
strategy (V6.0 is a tougher opponent than V5.0), card arrangement algorithm,
mouse setup option, protocol tolerance for communication between very fast
PCs and very slow PCs, and cosmetic modifications to game instructions and
help screens. The game has also been significantly speeded up for 8088 PCs
(users of 286/386/486 PCs will hardly notice this enhancement).

RUMMY is FREE; however, if you enjoy the game, your charitable donation of
$20 (or more) to the AMERICAN NARCOLEPSY ASSOCIATION would be appreciated
by the 200,000 Americans who suffer from NARCOLEPSY, a chronic disorder of
the central nervous system. Please mail your tax-deductible donation to
