Rummikub is one of the most well-known games for families and is enjoyed by millions of people in a variety of countries.

This traditional family game has become one of the most popular games over the past 70 years thanks to its distinctive formula of strategic thinking, good fortune, and competitive tension! By rearranging the tiles, you can produce the color and number combinations that make the most sense.

How To Play

The user-friendly tutorial in this online version of Rummikub online guides you through the game's fundamentals. Look here as a reminder and for reference.


14 tiles are given to each player. To make a run or group, you must utilize three or more of these tiles.

  • A run is defined as three or more consecutive numerals of the same color.
  • As long as they are distinct colors, a group is defined as three or more of the same number.
  • At any time, if you don't have a tile to play, you can add a new tile to your selection throughout your turn.

Rummikub rules

Your "initial meld," which is your first move, must be worth at least 30 points for it to be accepted. This can be any group or run of three or more tiles. 

Once you've made your first move, you can change the board to get rid of more of your tiles. You can do this by moving and breaking runs, switching out group tiles for other ones, and taking out tiles. This will work as long as the moved tiles still make a legal run or group.

When the tiles start to pile up, you'll see that there are many reasonable ways to split, move, and swap tiles to make new combinations. That's the hardest and most fun part.

The Objective

In Rummikub, the goal is to get rid of all of your tiles. Think of your own ways to do that well, and have fun with the game.
