Play Rummikub At Your Own Risk - It's Addictive!
It's no surprise that Rummikub is so popular--it has all the elements that make a great game: it's easy to learn and fast moving, it's different every time it's played, it combines luck and strategy, and it changes quickly so every player has a chance to win until the very end. And with more than 50 million units sold, Rummikub is one of the world's best-selling, and most-played, games.
Shifting a Run, Splitting a Group, Joker Substitution? Welcome To the World of Rummikub!
Players take turns placing numbered tiles in runs (consecutive numbers of the same color, like 2, 3, 4 in red) and groups (three or more of the same number in different colors, like a red 9, a blue 9, and a black 9), rummy style. It's easy to learn, but packed with strategy--the 'board' changes all the time as players adjust the tiles on the table.
The Joker tiles add to the fun; they can be any color or number. The object is to be the first player to play every tile on your rack. Players keep track of who wins each round--the player who wins the most rounds wins this time-tested tile game (there's also a point system for use as a tie-breaker).
Rummikub is ideal for people of different ages to play together, and it's great for a game night too. When kids play, it reinforces Stem and Steam concepts such as sequencing, pattern recognition, and planning skills. It's got lots of exciting moments, but it's also designed to bring people together, with plenty of opportunities for talking, chatting, and sharing with family and friends.

However, your experience may vary depending on the version. I had the version with "easy-grip contour" pieces. After a lot of play, the paint has chipped away to the point that many pieces are unreadable causing me to need to buy a new set. This is not a problem with the editions with engraved pieces.
BUYER BEWARE: I ordered this set from Amazon because it said that it had engraved pieces. The version I received though did not. If you look at all of the pictures for this product, you can see that many different versions are represented. I assure you, they are not all created equal.
I've been playing this game with my family for years. It's a blast because it's so completely different every time, and everyone has a chance to win. You might need to help small kids when they first learn how to play, but soon, they will be able to play and hold their own against adults.
I highly recommend this fun game. It'll give you hours of entertainment with family and friends.
This particular version however is not one I would recommend. If you plan on playing it a lot I would suggest spending a few dollars more and buying the deluxe version. I bought this one for my grandparents and they have a hard time identifying the colors, which is a very important aspect of the game. The holders for the bones are also inexpensively made and collapse if you are not very careful.
Good buy for adult players, not so good for younger or older players.
It causes you to THINK, yet you don't feel like you have to WORK too hard to be successful. The analytical types will resonate with Rummikub the most, and it's for THEM that the 2 minute rule exists! They'll take forever if you let them because they can SEE all the options through that analytical portal in their brains many of us lack. USE THE TWO MINUTE RULE!
We have a huge family, will be together for family vacation this weekend, and we intend on bringing SEVERAL Rummikub sets and having either (1) two simultaenous games with a playoff or (2) combine them for a massive game and see how that works.
BTW...if you have more than 4 players who wish to play, team up.
TIP of THE DAY...Use the camera on your phone to take a photo of the sets on the table as they exist BEFORE a player begins tearing everything apart in order to reinvent sets to play his tiles. IF the player judged incorrectly and can not complete the play and he has to return the sets to their original state, the photo will be INVALUABLE!
Best investment of the year for us. Have FUN!
Rummikub is a family favorite that is enjoyed by our family members of all ages. Everyone from my 8 year old on up to her 75 year old grandparents had a lot of fun at our recent family reunion playing this game.
I like that the game can be played fairly quickly and there are several modifications to the rules that can be used. The way we play Rummikub is a lot different than the way my husband's parents play it. The variations keep it interesting.
The box says ages 8 and up but younger players can be paired up with an older family member.
This is one "must have" game that I highly recommend to everyone.
Makes a great family or birthday gift.
This particular version is not the best- arrived in a bit banged up condition, and isn't a proper box- it opens in the front the way a cake box would, and is made of rather flimsy cardboard. There are no partitions inside to mark where you put the tiles or tile-holders, and the tile-holders are made of pretty cheap plastic.
The game is a ton of fun though :)
