Here is the post dedicated to the most played card game in our household parties that is Rummy. I remember from childhood, whenever our all kins gather in a family get together, we used to play rummy in the night and it was fun playing rummy and tambola, while eating some home made snacks and enjoying the thrill of the game.

My Mom has been playing Rummy from quite a long time as she is regular member of the colony kiti parties. So thats how I learned playing rummy right from childhood. Now, whenever we get free and through a party on weekends with friends we play rummy just for fun and excitement and when we win the money, that goes back again into the party. šŸ™‚

From quite sometime now, John and I came to know about online rummy websites in India but I haven’t had a time to look upon and play on those portals. There were many, to name a few sites such as classic rummy, Junglee rummy, rummy circle and many more. Basically they are running skill games on their websites and earn by getting certain amount as rack. Not a bad idea to play rummy online just for thrill and excel our skills that can be used in the parties. However, these websites not only offer games but conduct rummy tournaments as well. I have recently came across one google Ad about World Rummy Tournament. Well one of the famous lottery brand in India, PlayWin is conducting a World Rummy Tournament which is sponsored by an online rummy website JungleeRummy.com.

World Rummy Tournament

Earlier, I was reluctant to check that Ad. Yesterday only when I clicked the Ad, I came to know about the details and amount of prizes thats been on offer in the tournament. Its a huge prize pool of Rs. 1 Crore thats too the company is claiming is Guaranteed. The main fascinating thing about the event is that they are conducting the event on a Cruize Ship sailing from Malaysia and Thailand. I love to visit Malaysia and Thailand whenever we get some bonuses and once every two years we visit Malaysia or Singapore. So far we have travelled Five South Asian countries and the experience was awesome.

I thought I should give it a try and started searching for details about the rummy tournament by Playwin. Then I came to know that they are two ways to get into the tournament. One is to get the direct tickets from their World Rummy Tournament portal dedicated for sailing WRT tickets online and Second way is to play rummy qualifier games on their website and compete with other rummy players. Since the ticket cost was bit higher for my budget ( it was costing around 1.2 lakh Indian Rupees) though. therefore, I started playing for the online qualifier tournaments, being held on jungleerummy.com and crossed stageII level of the tournament. I am still playing for the final round and hopefully I may make it upto the final event.

The experience of play online is in itself very much exciting becauseĀ  its like a war with your friends and other competitors to secure your tickets for the final. I am relishing it at the moment, the website also props up by giving bonuses from time to time that keeps me stick to the game and hone my skill for the final event.

I will post my experiences onĀ  a later date once I got selected for the final event. till then good buy guys.. write to you soon.

P.S. For all my friends, try this World Rummy Tournament Qualifier once, We don’t know we may sail together from Malaysia to Thialand. Keeping Play and have fun. … Shaila

HOUSTON: A decommissioned Navy warship USNS General Hoyt S Vandenberg has been intentionally sunk off the Florida Keys to create the world’s second largest artificial reef which will serve as a long-term habitat for several marine fish species.

The 17,250-tonne ship USNS Vandenberg sank in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary on Wednesday in less than two minutes, said Andy Newman, spokesman for the Florida Keys Tourism Council.

“It went down like a rock,” Newman was quoted as saying by CNN. “Everything looked very, very smooth.”

The goal of the $8.6 million project is to divert fishing and diving pressure away from natural reefs, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The Vandenberg was built in 1943. It was commissioned as a World War II troop transport ship. After Japan surrendered, the Vandenberg was the first Navy ship to return to New York Harbour.

During the 1950s, the ship was used to transport refugees from Europe and Australia to America. In the 1960s the Air Force used the Vandenberg to track missiles. It also was used to track rockets and early space shuttle launches.

The ship, which was decommissioned in 1986, featured in the 1999 movie Virus, starring Donald Sutherland and Jamie Lee Curtis.
