2 decks, 2 jokers


Kalooki is a game from the ‘Rummy Family’ using 2 decks and 2 jokers – total 106 cards. It can be played with between 2 to 5 players. A complete game of Kalooki consists of several rounds of game-play, where players try to dispose of their cards as quickly as possible.

Penalty points usually determine the winner.

Kalooki is enjoyed by players of all ages. It can be played for fun – or for real money stakes.
It is especially popular in the UK where it is played in homes, clubs and casinos nationwide.


I have spent many hundreds of hours playing this game and don’t consider a single one of them wasted.
