Be the first player to eliminate all the tiles from your rack by forming them into sets of runs and groups. Try to keep as few points in your rack as possible. At the start of the game, you decide how many points to reach to end the game.


106 tiles (2 sets of tiles numbered 1 to 13 in four colors: black, red, blue, orange; 2 Jokers); 4 playing racks, pouch. Set Up: Place the tiles into the pouch and mix them thoroughly. Each player picks a tile; the one who selects the highest number goes first and play proceeds in a clockwise direction. Return the tiles to the pouch and mix them. Each player takes 14 tiles and places them on his rack.


There are two kinds of sets: Agroupis a set of either three or four tiles of the same number in different colors. Arunis a set of three or more consecutive numbers, all in the same color. The number 1 is always played as the lowest number; it cannot follow the number 13. In order to place tiles on the table, each player must make an initial play of at least 30 points in one or more sets. These points must come from the tiles on the player’s rack and not from tiles already played on the table. Atile is worth its face value. AJoker may be used for any tile and its point value is that of the tile it represents. The penalty for holding a Joker if another player wins the round is 30 points. If a player cannot enter the round, or purposely chooses not to, the player must take atile from the pouch and the turn ends. After players have made their initial plays, they can also build on other sets on the table with tiles from their racks. If a player cannot add onto the other sets, the player picks a tile from the pouch and the turn ends. Aplayer cannot lay down a tile he has just picked; he must wait until his next turn. Play continues until one player empties his rack and calls, “Rummikub®”.That ends the round and players tally their points (see Scoring). When the pouch is empty, play continues until no more plays can be made; that ends the round
