U3A INTERNATIONAL RUMMIKUB CONTINUES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Rummikub is a tile-based game for two to four players, combining elements of the card game Rummy and Mahjong.
There are 104 number tiles in the game (valued 1 to 13 in four different colors, two copies of each) and two jokers.
Players start with a quantity of tiles and take turns putting down tiles from their racks into sets (groups or runs) of at least three, drawing a tile from the pool if they cannot play. The players in turn use their tiles similarly, with the advantage of also being able to place tiles on other player’s sets in order to deplete his/her own tiles. A player with courage can opt to try and collect sets without putting them down in order to declare all sets together in one turn. Once the pool of tiles has been used, the first player to use all tiles is the winner.
The other players have against them the total of unplaced tiles.
Further rounds are played and the player with the fewest points is the winner.
