The objective of the game is very similar to the card game "Rummy", however this games is played with tiles. The winner of the game is the first one to use all of his/her tiles drawn.
The game play is simple, everyone draw 14 tiles and put them on their own board, the remaining tiles are left on the table face down.
When playing tiles on the table, the rules are quite simply, there can never be less then 3 in any set of tiles on the table. These can be played either in consecutive number of the same colour or sets of same numbers of different colours. This means that a player can play three different colours of 8, if anyone else then have one of the fourth colour, they can add this to the row. When at any stage, there's more then 3, the others can be moved around anywhere else, so if there's a row of four 8's, a player can use one of them to create a new set, this could be another set of 3 8's or it could be 7, 8, 9 or 8, 9, 10 etc. The tiles on the table can be moved around as much as the players which turn is it like, however ever round a player must either add at least one tile to the table, if the player is unable to do that, he's got to draw a new additional tile from the pile of tiles still left face down on the table.
To start the game, the first time a player put tiles on the table, it must give at least a total of 30 points.
So go find your Rummikub game and let it bring joy and smiles to your Family.
