THE USE OF WILDS IN COUNTING TOWARDS THE INITIAL MELD POINTS

The game I learned as a 10 year old was 5000-2-0-2 and did not permit the wild card points to count towards the initial meld. Was this just my family's household rule?

HI

I have heard of variations where the top discard you are picking up cannot constitute a value in the initial meld, but never wild cards.
it would be very difficult if playing 4 people to get to a 120 meld without wild cards given only have 11 cards and you can only pick up one (NOT two) card and discard one each turn.

At GameColony.com you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
