MoMo’s Shanghai Rummy
THIS ISN’T YOUR MOTHER’S RUMMY.
IT’S YOUR GRANDMOTHERS.
MoMo was our chain-smoking, Early Times-drinking, (alleged) mob-connected grandmother who only played for money and keeps. Rarely was she seen without her Virginia Slims & a deck of cards.
MoMo created this version of rummy that’s been passed down five generations now. Each game consists of multiple decks of cards, 7 hands, & at least 8 Jokers. And since MoMo was the wild card in our family, we’ve made her the Joker.
If you need to hustle some pocket change, this might just be your game.
