Card Game

Hi TQC,

My dad and i were playing a card game tonight, that my family has always caked rummy. However, I was trying to Google a few times, and I don't think we're calling it the right name! So, aces are high, and are worth 15 points. Deuces are wild, and worth 20 points each. Faces are worth 10 points each, everything is 5. Each player is dealt 7 cards. On each turn, you can either choose a card from the top of the deck, or take the top card on the discard pile, or take the entire discard pile. The goal is to lay down sets of 3-4 cards of the same value, or runs of 3+ in the same suit. The goal is to be the first to empty your hand. If you are stuck with cards in your hand, the points count against whatever you've laid down. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
