It seems that you have problems with your video card, that's a common problem with many HPs. Better go to a service center to fix it. And, the laptops aren't for gaming, if you want to play, buy a desktop.

Why are there 2 joker cards in a deck of cards.


There is not always 2 jokers. Sometimes there are three and sometimes just one. It depends on what kind of cards you buy. The general purpose of the jokers are because there are many card games where you use the joker cards such as spades,rook, bridge, and many more.

In a game of Mahjong is it better to discard tiles in front of you or mix them with the other players' discarded tiles?


There are different opinions about where you should place your Mahjong discarded tiles, whether in front of your other tiles or in the middle of the table, mixed with the other players' discarded tiles.
I personally believe that placing them in front of each player makes the game easier and more enjoyable. Because everyone has his or her own discarded tiles in front of them, the other players can see what each person has discarded and what not. Therefore, according to which suits are missing from the discarded piles, it is easier to understand which tiles each person is hoping to use to create their Mahjong and therefore it's possible to decide if it's a good idea to discard a specific tile that might allow a different player to win.

Hi i am looking for the rules on how to play a milton bradley game .... the game is..... game of life and the year was 1978 please let me know asap if you can find me these free thank u


Hello There

Here Follows the how to play and rules of the game enjoy!!!!


Object of Life Board Game:
To win the board game of Life, players must collect as many Life tiles as possible and try to have the most amount of money at the end of the game.

Contents of Life:
Life game board, 6 plastic car pawns, pink and blue "people" pegs, 3 mountains, bridge, 7 buildings, label sheet, spinner, stack of play money, insurance policies and bank loans, 25 Life tiles, deck of 36 cards, banker's tray, and the official The Game of Life rules and instructions.

Game Preparation:
Shuffle all Life tiles and place them Life-side-up somewhere near the game board as the draw pile. Remove four tiles without looking at them and, keeping them Life-side-up, stack them on Millionaire Estates.

Separate all cards into four decks: Career, Salary, House Deeds, and Stocks and place them near the Life game board along with the Automobile and Homeowner's Insurance Policies, Bank Loans and money. A banker is chosen and $10,000 is given to each player.

Players then choose a color of car, place one person in the vehicle, and then located their car on the starting space.

Before you can begin your first turn, each player must first decide if they will start a career or go to college. By starting college, you will have more salary and career options. This option does take longer and upon deciding the career option, you must take out $40,000 in bank loans before your first spin. Place each car on either the career or college spot on the Life board.

If a career is chosen, chose 1 card from the shuffled deck of career cards at random that does not says "Degree Required." Then do the same with the Salary cards. Place both cards face up in front of you. Those going to college will do the same. Players that have chosen a career will do the same only when they come to the Job Search spot on the board. They then can choose three career and three salary cards and choose the best one. The other cards drawn are then returned the deck.

Keep in mind that player also earn money if others land on your career spaces throughout the board. If you are the accountant and someone has to pay taxes, they will give you the money. All careers have multiple spaces and is a "luck of the spin."

Game Play:
The rule on who begins the game of Life rests on whoever spins the highest number on the wheel and then other player take their turns in a clockwise fashion. Move your car forward the number of spaces you spin each time unless you reach a STOP space. Follow the directions on the space you land on and your turn is over.

As you move your car, you will stop of various colors of spaces. The following rules apply to the color of each space:
  • Orange Spaces: The majority of spaces are orange and you must follow the directions given on these spaces.
  • Blue Spaces: These spaces are optional and you can choose if you want to follow their directions.
  • Green Spaces: These are Pay Day spaces and each play will collect the amount shown on their salary cards.
  • Red Spaces: Only three of these spaces exist: Job Search, Get Married, and Buy a House. Whenever you reach a red space, stop - even if you have moves left and follow the directions. Then spin and move again.
Spaces that show pictures of Life Tiles are called Life spaces. These are family activities, good deeds or service projects. Whenever a player lands on a Life space, one Life Tile is taken from the discard pile. If the draw pile has run out, take one Life Tile from any opponent. Keep all Life Tiles Life-side-up in front of you; looking at the values on the Life Tiles is against the rules.

Career Spaces are extra opportunities to make some money from other players. If you land on a career space, pay the person with the matching Career Card or if no one has it, pay the bank (if you own it you don't need to do anything). The Police Officer has special rules for his "career space." Any player that spins a 10, or is caught speeding (the Police Officer must notice), pays the Officer $5,000. If no Office is player, no action is required.

When players land on the You're Fired or Mid-Life Crisis, they must trade your Salary and Career Card in for new ones. One of each may be drawn applying the same rules as stated above. Wait to return your previous career and salary until you have drawn new cards. If you land on Night School, you may choose if you want to change your Career and Salary cards. Two cards of each are drawn and if both are not desired, you do not have to take them, and, can remain with the career and salary you currently have.

Payday is the spot where the player collects their salary from the bank.

When a player reaches the Getting Married space, they stop even if they have moves left. One Life Tile is taken and one person peg is added to your car. Then spin and move again. The same rules apply for the Baby Boy, Baby Girl, or Twins spaces.

Buying a House rules are similar to getting married. Stop, even if you have moves left, and draw one House Deed at random from the deck. Pay the bank the price on the deed. If you're short on cash, a loan must be taken out from the bank. Then spin again and move. Homeowner's Insurance can be bought when the house is purchased or during any following turn. Pay the bank the amount shown on the deed for insurance and take one policy from the pile. This allows you to be protected from floods, theft, and tornadoes. Automobile insurance can also be purchased at the beginning of any one of your turns. Pay $10,000 to the bank and take one policy. Accidents, damage, and theft are now protected against.

Throughout the game, players may buy stocks allowing them to collect $10,000 from the bank every time their stock number is spun on the wheel (even if done by the person holding the stock). Buying more than one stock at a time is against the rules with one exception: If you land on the Stock Market Zooms space, take one Stock (at no charge) even if you already own one. Stocks cost $50,000 and you may choose which stock you would like to purchase. A Stock Market Slump will require you to return one stock to the bank.

Bank loans may be taken out at any time during your turn. One bank load is worth $20,000. To payback loans, a $5,000 interest must be paid for each loan received.

Once you reach the end of the Life game board, either by landing directly on it or by passing by, you must do the following:
  • Pay all outstanding loans
  • Replace your Career Card, Salary Card and Insurance Policies.
  • Sell house by following the instructions on the Deed after spinning the wheel one last time. Keep your Stock(s) since you can still collect money from the bank every time your number is spun.
  • If you think you might have the most money, place your car on Millionaire Estates (any number of players may retire there). Otherwise, place your car on Countryside Acres and wait there until all players have retired. If you have chosen Millionaire Estates, other players can still steal Life Tiles from you if the draw pile runs out. Those that have chosen Countryside Acres receive one more Life Tile and all their Life Tiles are safe from other players taking them.
After all players have retired, all players at Millionaire Estates count their money. The richest player takes the four Life Tiles at Millionaire Estates. The official Life rules mention that in case of a tie for richest player, the tying players split the pile taking 2 tiles each. All players turn their Life Tiles message-side-up and count up the dollar amounts add this total to all the remaining money you have in front of you. The player with the most money wins!

Thank You

Rules for board game- word rummikub please


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.

I have questions about Rummikub by Pressman Corporation


1. "Why stacks of seven? Is there significance to this?"
Actually a lot of games use 7 pieces/cards/... to start out, it has probably to do with being an ideal number to make combinations, not too many, not too few.... also if you deal them in stacks of 7, the shuffle will be as random as possible. For this game 1 stack of 7 is too little so we play with 14. Probably you'll find a symbolic reference too in history if you are willing to search for it... (sorry not enough time for that today ;-) but my first guess is that it has a connection to the amount of days and the believe in several cultures that 7 is a lucky number)

2. "After each players turn, does he draw from the pool to replace the number of tiles he used in that turn? Or, does the game end when a player uses all his original 14 tiles and any others he has been forced to draw by the only 2 examples given."
Edit: No, you only take 1 tile out of the pool if you're unable to lay a "meld"... but you don't have to replace the number of played tiles (my original answer according to the way I used to play: You replace the number of tiles used after your turn until there are no more. )

3. "In other words, can the game end with tiles remaining in the pool?"
edited answer: yes. (original answer: No, unless you alter the rules a bit... for example you decide to play for 30minutes max. (or you follow another playing-way!))

4. "The instruction sheet that I have states that it is Original Rummikub Playing Rules ''The Sabra Way''. Is there another way and instructions that I am missing?"
Yes, there are many other ways, the 2 other most common ways are:
"the American way"
Rules of Tile Games Rummikub

and the "International way"
Rules of Tile Games Rummikub

And ofcourse there are plenty of different ways. Just set the rules when you start to play...
