Rummikub includes 106 high-quality plastic tiles, 4 plastic tile-holder racks, and illustrated instructions. For 2 or more players ages 8 and up.It's no surprise that Rummikub is so popular--it has all the elements that make a great game: it's easy to learn and fast moving, it's different every time it's played, it combines luck and strategy, and it changes quickly so every player has a chance to win until the very end. And with more than 50 million units sold, Rummikub is one of the world's best-selling, and most-played, games. Players take turns placing numbered tiles in runs (consecutive numbers of the same color, like 2, 3, 4 in red) and groups (three or more of the same number in different colors, like a red 9, a blue 9, and a black 9), rummy style. It's easy to learn, but packed with strategy--the "board" changes all the time as players adjust the tiles on the table. The Joker tiles add to the fun; they can be any color or number. The object is to be the first player to play every tile on your rack. Players keep track of who wins each round--the player who wins the most rounds wins this time-tested tile game (there's also a point system for use as a tie-breaker). Rummikub is ideal for people of different ages to play together, and it's great for a game night too. When kids play, it reinforces STEM and STEAM concepts such as sequencing, pattern recognition, and planning skills. It's got lots of exciting moments, but it's also designed to bring people together, with plenty of opportunities for talking, chatting, and sharing with family and friends.

Easy to learn basics
The goal is to be the first player to use all the tiles in your rack by creating sets on the table. Each set must have at least 3 tiles. Sets can be in groups (at least 3 of the same number in different colors) or runs (3 or more tiles with consecutive numbers in the same color).
To begin the game, you must place tiles from your rack into sets that total at least 30 points. If you cannot play tiles from your rack, you must draw a tile from the pool, ending your turn.
Strategize & manipulate the board
After the initial meld, you can now manipulate any tiles on the board to help you become the winning player!
Applying strategy in manipulating tiles is an exciting part of playing Rummikub. Using at least one tile from their own rack, players try to lay as many tiles as possible on the table by forming new sets and rearranging or adding on to existing sets. Existing sets can be manipulated in many ways but must follow the rules for groups and runs.
Jokers add excitement to the game
Jokers can be used as any color and number to complete a set. On future turns, a Joker can be retrieved from a set on the table by a player who can replace it with a tile of the same number and color the Joker represents.
When a player retrieves a Joker, the Joker will once again have any value or color. The player must use the Joker immediately to make a new set and must also use at least one tile from his/her rack, as on any other turn.
Winning the game
The first player to clear his/her rack of all tiles wins!
Other players then add up the value of the tiles they are holding as a negative figure and the winner of the game receives a positive score equal to the total of all the other player's points. Play wisely - the penalty for having a Joker on your rack is 30 points.

In the orange/red set, I get that people had trouble telling the orange from the red. But, at least I could read the numbers. In 2018, it is easy to pick a color that is both visible and easy to read. Instead, the company just made it a pale yellow that can barely be seen. And, I no longer mix it up with the red! I can barely see it all. Really a shame.
If you are over 50 years old, there is a good chance that you will find Rummikub yellow numbers to be as invisible as I do.
Who runs this company?
And you want to rid yourself of the following chips (5,6)
You can build from what is on the table in order to use your chips:
You did not have a set on your own, but you moved the chips around, maintaining the integrity of the chips, allowing your chips to be placed into new sets.
Also this particular version of the game is great quality for the price. I have the bigger set, old school style, and honestly I don't like how heavy the chips are. I prefer these because they are less noisy and less heavy, therefore easier to travel.
Great value and lots of fun!
