When I think of Rummikub, I immediately remember bunking class to play a few rounds of the strategy game with university buds, while chewing on whatever munchies we could forage from our backpacks.
Yep – I was that student – I totes bunked class. But also, I was thaaat student… I bunked class to play a board game. Call me a nerd, but not to my face.
Anyways, years later Rummikub is still a firm fave! My new opponents are unsuspecting family members who are often amused at my level of competitiveness when it comes to the game. Best moment is getting to shout out “Rummikub!” as I slap my final tile on the table! I mean, I can’t help it. Must. Outwit. Them. All.
The game basically involves using the numbered tiles, on your rack, to build sets (same number) or groups (running numbers, in same color). The player with the least amount or no tiles left, at the end of game play, is the winner.
That’s the awesome thing about Rummikub though. It has the fun family element that most board games have. But it’s also such a cool strategy game… it keeps you on your toes.
So the fact that it is celebrating 70 years of bringing friends and families (and university students) together is definitely a celebration worth noting!
The range of Rummikub board games can be purchased from Toy Kingdom, Toy Zone, The Kid Zone and Takealot. Or purchase directly from the Prima Toys website: https://www.primatoys.co.za/rummikub
