Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

With rules similar to gin rummy, Rummikub is a classic tile game that's guaranteed to get at least a million kid-hours of use in any family. Players take 14 numbered tiles and try to get rid of them as fast as possible by creating runs (for example, 7-8-9) and sets (7-7-7). The most fun aspect of the game--and the part that's best for creative strategic thinking--is that you can pilfer from and rearrange the efforts of other players in your attempts to part company with more tiles. --Richard Farr

This is one magnificant game! We (as grownups) had hours and hours of fun with it. We changed the rules a little to make up different types of games, and had loads and loads of fun. Worth buying!!!

Wow! I picked this up as a spur-of-the-moment purchase along with something else, not expecting anything, but was completely hooked. I took it along on a two-day walking trip where myself and three adult friends found ourselves rained in for one whole day. We started playing this about 2pm and were still going strong at 8pm when we stopped for dinner. After dinner we played again.

The concept is simple and not dissimilar to gin rummy, although played with counters (that look like Scrabble pieces but with numbers) instead of cards. The aim is to get rid of all your counters by switching around patterns on the table. The added catch is the one-minute time limit, which cranks up the tension and excitement.

Putting it into words doesn't do it justice. It had myself and three other intelligent adults from a range of cultures (the UK, France, Hong Kong and Australia) completely hooked. We laughed, shouted and grew increasingly excited, and as soon as we got on the train to travel home, we whipped the game out and started all over again.

I can't speak for its durability, as I have had the game only a short time, but I can say that for a travel game it is fantastic value for money: it great fun, light and takes up almost no room (especially if you ditch the racks, which you don't really need provided you can hide your counters from opponents).

I would add just one small gripe and one warning. The gripe is that the instructions are clearly a poor translation from another language, making them pretty tricky to understand at first. I think it took us close to 45 minutes to get started. The warning is that Rummikub is a sloooow game to begin with, so you have to stick with it. I promise it gets better, not only as the game progresses but also the more you play, as you start mapping out strategies.

Thoroughly recommended.

Ideal game for 4 really unless you want your guests to leave early! The more you play it the more addictive it gets and the more moves you realise you can make. Highly recommended

easy to learn and hours of entertainment. We've been playing this for years as a family and it's always popular. I was bought the word version for my birthday to go with it, but it's a very different mental game and we keep sneaking back to the numbers version. Now bought the travel version for holidays. It's sturdy and a cleverly designed, compact version of the larger game. All it lacks (as does the big game) is a small durable bag to keep the letters in. My sewing machine is calling...problem solved.

My wife & I travel extensively and often find ourselves with several hours to kill on overland journeys or at various ports. We have found this game educationally stimulating and very competitive. Delays at airports have never been so enjoyable and we now have taken to playing it at home either on our own or with friends. Cannot recommend it enough.

Wonderful Game - very educational. I purchased this for my grandaughters who are age 10 and 13. It is very easy to learn the rules and the adults have also become hooked on playing it. The younger child is absolutely brilliant in sorting out her moves. I had heard of this game some time ago - it is based on the card game rummy to an extent - but I could not find the travel version in any of the shops that I tried. Therefore I was amazed to find it on Amazon. Brilliant game and thoroughly recommend buying it.
