Game On: Rummikub
* Monday, November 6, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

What is Rummikub? Rummikub is a tile-based game for 2 or more players combining elements of the card game rummy and mahjong.

History: Rummikub was invented by Ephraim Hertzano, a Romanian-born Jew, who emigrated to Mandatory Palestine in the 1940s. He hand-made the first sets with his family in the backyard of his home. Hertzano sold these sets door-to-door and on a consignment basis at small shops.

Over the years, the family licensed it to other countries and it became Israel’s best-selling export game. In the 1970s it was brought to the United States by Irv and Arline Kossoff to sell in their New York’s Gift, Games, and Luggage store.

Arline translated the rules from Hebrew to English and by 1977, it became a bestselling game in the United States.

Come learn and then play this easy and entertaining game!

Players of all levels are welcome!
