Rummikub is a very simple game to learn, but never ceases to challenge the players.
The game was first created in the 1930s and is based on the traditional middle-eastern game of Okey. Similar to the Rummy that you play with cards - you try to get rid of all your tiles by forming numbers into runs of 3 tiles or more, or 3 to 4 of a kind. The colours of the numbers on the tiles are like card suits. This game may start rather uneventfully, but when the players start putting more and more tiles in play, the options for your upcoming turns can become more complex, challenging, and exciting.
Our 2 groups played on alternate weeks until last March, and it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon - very friendly, sometimes competitive and always with some excitement!
A few of us have been playing during the summer in our gardens, and some of us have been playing against the computer online - which can become addictive (or is that just me?).
All of us are looking forward to the day when we can resume our enjoyable afternoons.
Both groups are currently at full capacity.
