Rummy-O is a variation of the card game Rummy, played with tiles instead of cards. Also known as Rummikub, Tile Rummy, Rummy Tiles, Rummy Cube, RummyKub, RummiCub, Rummicube and Rummycub, depending on the manufacturer, it was invented in the 1930s by Ephraim Hertzano. A game that requires both luck and strategic planning, it can provide hours of entertainment.

Basic Rules

Play the game with two to four people. There are 106 tiles in four different colours, black, red, orange and blue, with numbers from 1 to 13. Included in these tiles are two jokers (wild tiles).

The object of the game is to eliminate all the tiles from your rack to win the game. To accomplish this by forming them into melds, which are runs and groups of numbers.

Keep only a few points in your hands as possible, since you will lose the number of points you have in your hand when an opponent goes out first.

Enjoy the company of others as you play this game.
