Having shuffled the tiles face down on the table, each player simply takes any 14 insrtucciones from the table the player chosen to play first taking 15 and a tile is turned up to be the joker.

Okey is a popular Turkish game of the Rummy family, played with a set of wooden tiles.

Rummikub’s main component is a pool of tiles, consisting of number tiles and two joker tiles. Apart from the discards and the face up tile on top of the six-tile stack, no tiles are exposed until a player shows a winning hand: Then the players set them up into 21 stacks of five tiles, the tiles in each pile being face down.


You can’t play the drawn tile until the next turn, however — this goes for any tile drawn during the game. The object is, by drawing and discarding tiles, to be the first to form a hand that consists entirely of sets of equal numbered tiles, and runs of consecutive tiles of the same colour.

Now the stacks of tiles are distributed to the players. Players have 14 or 16 tiles initially and take turns putting down tiles from their racks into sets groups or runs of at least three, drawing a tile if they cannot play.

Discarded tiles are placed to the right of the player who discarded them, in a stack, so that only the most recent discard in the stack is visible. If the number thrown is greater than the number of stacks in front of the dealer, then the count will continue using the stacks in front of the player to dealer’s right, and one of these will be selected.

A winning hand consists of 14 tiles formed entirely into sets and runs – for example two sets of 3 and two runs of 4, or a run of instrudciones plus a run of 3 plus rumkikub set of 4.

This face up tile determines the insfrucciones okey for the game – a wild tile that can be used to represent instruciones tiles to complete a combination.


It would seem to be logically equivalent to use the false jokers as jokers and every tile to be what it appears to be. So for example when the green 11s are jokers, the false jokers are played as green 11s and cannot represent any other tile. Player A will now have a cumulative score of 18, player B will be -5, player C will be and player D will be Rummikub is a tile-based game for two to four players, combining elements of the card game rummy and mahjong.

So for example a black 7 plus two red 7’s would not form a rummiiub set. At the end of the turn, all played tiles must be in valid sets.

They are moved to the middle of the table, without looking at them or disturbing their order. The player to the dealer’s left receives the last tile of this stack and 3 tiles from the top of the next stack, and finally the dealer takes the last 2 tiles from this stack and 2 from the next stack.

Play continues until any player’s score reaches zero or less. Add a tile to an existing run or group. This is called melding. Each player will draw one tile; the highest number goes first, and the 1 tile is always low.

The two false jokers – the tiles without numbers – are used only to represent the joker tiles. Rummikub was invented by Ephraim Hertzanoa Romanian -born Jewwho immigrated to Israel in the s.
