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 no instructions for Rummikub for kids. It is the version with animal pictures on. Cant find instructions anywhere on Google. Can you help please?


Search for MFG's customer service, email or call. How old is it?
Where did you buy it? Seller might be able to help. Or try Ebay for lightly used.

We play Rummikub all the time. We wore the numbers off one set so bought a whole new game. One of the pieces is marked wrong. The Black 3 is not in the upper area where it is supposed to be, it is off...


we don't make Rummikub - we just try to help.
Try Googling the makers name - find out who made it and e-mail them with a polite request.
GOOD LUCK

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...
