Rummikub (also known as Rummy-O, Rummycube, Rummyking, Rummy-Q, Tile Rummy and Rummy Tile) was created in the 1930's. The game was invented by Ephraim Hertzano, a Romanian who immigrated to Mandate, Palestine in the early 1930's. He hand-made the first sets with his family in the backyard of his home. The game combines the elements of rummy, dominoes, mahjong and chess. Hertzano sold the first 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 #1 export game. In 1977 it became a bestselling game in the US and remains popular to this day. This Rummy Tile set comes with 4 wooden stands to collect your tiles on, 106 multicolored tiles and a dice. It's a challenging game for the whole family and will provide years of entertainment. May the best player win!
