Played with 106 tiles (1 to 13 in 4 different colours), the object of the game is to be the first player to play all of the tiles from their rack by arranging them into groups (of the same number) or runs (three of more consecutive numbers) on to the table.
If you like the card game Rummy, you'll love Rummikub. A quick to learn game, strategic options go surprisingly deep. Once sets and runs have been placed in play on the table, they are available to anyone to manipulate, helping them clear their own tiles. Chose your strategy carefully, keeping tiles back if necessary, but don't get caught with tiles on the rack at the end of the round because you'll be giving that score to the winner of the round!
