I played a lot of board games growing up and now we are continuing with that with our own children, my parents introduced us to Rummikub after they played it with friends. They quickly bought the game, we followed suit and the one I was sent from the PR company has been left for the boys other set of grandparents to enjoy. I really enjoy manipulating the numbers even though it can be frustrating at times when you are sat twiddling your thumbs praying you will get 30 points soon so you can join the actual game…
Well if you are also a fan of Rummikub you can now sign up to the UK championships. I do enjoy playing but I rarely win, but it does not stop me persevering and trying to clear all my tiles before my opponents manage to. If you did want to sign up you simply join the Rummikub Online Championships and register by visiting www.rummikub.com, going on the Facebook page, Google Play or downloading the app. But be quick the last heat takes place on the 29th of August. It looks easy enough to do, but it did not seem to like Chrome, hubbie used Firefox.
The highest scoring eight UK finalists from the Online Championships will be invited to take part in the Rummikub UK Final taking place in September in central London. The overall winner will be setting off on a free trip to Berlin with a luxury 3 nights stay in the Ritz hotel for a further exclusive Rummikub event attended by champions from all over the world.
I think it’s worth trying your luck with a lovely prize on offer. It’s such an addictive game, we never settle for one round we keep going and going. Each of us desperate to have a winning round for ourselves, although hubbie seems the most talented Rummikub player in our household so he did give the Rummikub Online Championship a try. I on the other hand am renowned for muddling up the board at times trying to be a bit too ambitious with my manipulating and then losing my train of thought!
