Rummy Tiles (Rummikub) Game
When you play online Rummy tiles, you have to use the tiles you got at the beginning of the game, to create groups with three or more tiles per each
The first player to get rid of all the tiles in his hand will gain points to his account. The number of the points is equal to the sum of the tiles which remains in his hands. At any stage of the game, you can rearrange the tiles you have on the
game board, to fit your needs.
During the first time you play it, it may seem simple but remember that Rummy is a game of skills. It can easily become a very complex game of rearranging the tiles and rearranging them again in order to make your opponents have high value of tiles left in their hands.
Rummy tiles are a combination of few online games, and their advantages.
When I'm playing the Rummy tiles game, it seems like the game is a mixture of Mah-Jong, traditional online Rummy common in china, some Dominoes and Chess. The most popular name for the Rummy tiles game is Rummikub.
As known for many years, Rummikub is a stimulating game, combined skills and
patience. The Rummikub games require a large measure of strategy and a small dose of luck.
Online Rummikub players and Rummy players in general do not like to be in the lucky side of the gaming map. In contrary to Poker and Casino online, Rummy games are much less into luck and more into skill , and its can be seen in the US laws as well.
The first Rummy tiles game was called Rummikub. It was developed by Ephraim Hertzano at the year of 1932- 1933. The first Rummikub sets, the cubs themselves, were hand-made one, and the first set taking place was at Ertzano's backyard by Ephraim and his immediate family.
I must say that although I met many online rummy players that are playing tiles and cards rummy versions, and know the story about Ephraim, I cant believe it
The Rummikub game was spread
by word of mouth, players were telling their friends about it and joined them to their sets. From door to door, from one player to another, at the mid 1950's, the game was half popular already.
Some different versions of the cubes came out to the market and were played within families or at clubs.
The addition of the tiles and the stands to the Rummy game were great and the public liked them a lot. Any western house in our days does have a version of the Rummikub tiles somewhere.
These days it's so popular that more than 25 languages of Rummikub were printed world wide. Some late article talked about 40 million sets of Rummikub sold over the world each year.
