Product Description

In Mummy Rummy, players dig and sift for Egyptian treasures like artifacts from the tomb of Tutankhamun. As in gin rummy, the object is to form sets of like cards, but the fun of Mummy Rummy is that each card shows a portion of an artifact, so the three-card sets--in black or white groups within five color suits--combine to depict ancient Egyptian treasures (including mummies, of course). A descriptive guide accompanying the 45-card deck shows the 25 possible artifacts and identifies each of the treasures, including cat mummies, coffin lids, and a painted, earthenware canopic jar containing a mummified liver, circa 2000 B.C. This game is an excellent introduction to gin rummy, and children will appreciate the complexity of matching parts of pictures to form a whole image. Players will also enjoy the game's clever mimicking of an archaeological expedition with the dig (draw) and sift (discard) piles. Mummy Rummy is the winner of a Parents' Choice Award and a National Parenting Publications Honors Award.

We bought Mummy Rummy as a gift for my then 10 year old son. He's 13 now and we still play this game now and then. It's a great family game which teaches kids strategic planning and at the same time does not bore parents. Would make a wonderful, "different" gift as it is not readily found in stores ... at least not in our part of the country. END

My husband teaches sixth grade and they study Egypt. He uses this game in the classroom and the students love it. We have also played this game in our home with our own children. They also loved it. It is not a game that can just be thrown at the children and expect them to understand it. Parents will need to actually spend time with their children and help them learn it. Once they understand it, they will have no problem playing it by themselves. It can be a very fun, competitive game.

Mummy Rummy is a cleverly conceived game which requires both strategic thinking and careful observation. It is beautifully designed with tasteful pictures of intriguing egyptian treasures. Cards contain fragments of treasures, and the purpose of the game is to put three cards together to create a whole image. There are a lot of rules to get under your belt at first, but once these are mastered the game is absorbing and satisfying.

My sons have loved this game from ages 5 - 10, and it's still interesting for me after several years. The cards and box have held up very well, and the pictures are high quality.

This is a wonderful game. It did take me awhile to learn but I just needed to focus and really read the directions then off I went. It wasn't so hard after all! I use this game in school with students when teaching a unit on Ancient Egypt. Seems everybody loves Ancient Egypt with its gold and mummies. This game is fun and it helps students look a bit more at Ancient Egyptian art and objects.
