Rules for board game- word rummikub
Complete words may be placed on the table, or letters can be added to
current words. Words already on the table can be broken apart and the
letters used to form new words as long as at the end of a player's turn
he has added at least one new tile, all letters on the table have been
used to form valid, unique words, and the longest new word contains at
least one letter from his rack.
. his Rummikub game is based on the same principles of
Rummikub, where your objective is also to form sequences by picking up
Rummikub tiles and discarding those which do not help you come closer to
this objective. Only that Rummikub Word does not have any numbers. Here
the traditional numbers are replaced by letters. According to the rules
of Rummikub Word, you no longer have Groups and Runs but only words.
The objective of Rummikub Word is to accumulate points by forming the
longest possible words. The point value of each letter in this
fascinating online Rummikub game is as follows: A=10, B=2, C=4, D=4,
E=10, F=2, G=3, H=3, I=7, J=1, K=2, L=7, M=3, N=6, O=8, P=4, Q=1, R=7,
S=7, T=8, U=4, V=1, W=2, X=1, Y=2, Z=1 and Jokers=2.
Now you do not have to go and buy a Rummikub Work kit.
Although i wasn't able to find the exact rules for the card game, but here are the rules to the orginal game.
There are three variations of the game in which you will be playing:
American Rummikub - The simplest of the three
versions of Rummikub and the most like traditional rummy games. Once
you have learned the basics of American Rummikub, you can adapt what you
know to the other rummy games if you choose, or you can vary it with
your own rules.
Sabra Rummikub - This adds another facet to the more
simple rules of the American version. It is also an easy game to
learn, but the extra manipulation allowed makes it a bolder game with
aggressive tactics. The action is often quick but demands that you
think ahead and visualize the changing configuration of the tiles.
There is a strict time limitation in which you will have to make fast
and furious plays.
International Rummikub - A highly sophisticated
variation of this game, which bears a strong resemblance to Mah-Jongg.
It is a challenge to complete a variety of winning patterns and
combinations. The scoring is unusual and the ever-changing
possibilities of play are thoroughly absorbing.
Both the dealing and the playing always go counter-clockwise. This
is because this game, although originally conceived in Romania, really
began its journey to the world in Israel, where in Hebrew everything
reads backwards - from right to left. So, Rummikub always goes
counter-clockwise because it is staying true to its roots.
With what you got above you probably should be easy able to adapt your own rules.
