My friend DR has this game- Rummikub- that he brings when we go camping in Algonquin Park every summer. It's really fun (I love games) and this year I asked and got it for Christmas.
I played it Christmas Day with my Mom and brother Stefan for hours. Then I played it with my friends this past weekend and we got lost in the game. No laughing, no joking around- just intense scrutiny around the table as we all calculated our next moves.
It's a good game.
