Mystery Rummy series

The Mystery Rummy series consists of variants of the traditional card game Rummy designed by Mike Fitzgerald. All of the games in the series share themes based upon infamous or mysterious characters, events or stories.

Related games

While not officially branded as being part of the U.S. Games Systems Inc Mystery Rummy Series, these games are closely related due to the fact that they fit the theme and Rummy based rules of the others and were also designed by Mike Fitzgerald (with Richard Borg in the case of Wyatt Earp). Because they were published by another publisher, they aren't officially considered part of the Mystery Rummy series by US Games Systems.

2001 Wyatt Earp 2-4 players; capture outlaws (by making melds) for cash rewards
2003 History's Mysteries Card Game 2-6 players; decide if unsolved mysteries are fact or fiction, decided by most melds
2009 Bonnie and Clyde 2-4 players; adds a location track with bonuses to melding at the current location. Although originally planned as Mystery Rummy Case #5 (and the rules incorrectly state as much), this game was never part of the U.S. Games Systems, Inc. Mystery Rummy Series.
