Rummikub - 1 Walton - 2nd and 4th Mondays 2 to 4 p.m. A mildly competitive game based on Rummy but played with tiles.
This group meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month from 14:00 to 16:00 in the Leader’s home in Walton. There are 8 members on register of whom 6 usually attend.
The Leaders says:
"The group started in January 2018 because I wanted to join a group and there wasn’t one in Elmbridge.
The game is loosely based on Rummy but played with tiles and requires much more thinking!
The leader sends out a reminder e-mail in advance of the meetings. If a member is not able to attend, they respond to the leader, so that he knows how many to expect. If 6 or more are expected, we play at two tables. For 5 or less, we play at one table.
The tables are in the dining room and kitchen, as significant table space is required to play the game. There is only space for two tables, so the group is limited to 8 people (4 per table).
On arrival, we meet in the sitting room. When the expected number have arrived, we draw lots for seating positions, so that the group does not form into cliques and ability levels are varied. At half-time, the leader provides refreshments, which are taken in the sitting room.
