Admit it there’s been a few games you’ve heard of at least once in your life, and the name alone made you wonder what in the world the game was about. Like Rummy, Kalooki, or the age old Kick The Can (no I wasn’t born in the 50s, but I do have a mom). But even though these games sounded odd at first, they were actually a lot of fun and quite addicting. I’m sure you can think of a few more from your time as well. When I first heard about Rummikub I was very confused as to what it was, let alone how to say it. Apparently no one really knows how its supposed to be pronounced, everyone has a different pronunciation, who knows what’s right! Here are a few examples of the way different people think its pronounced:
Rummy – Cube
Rummy – Cub
Rummy – Coob
Other people absolutely insist that the way you say it depends on your location in the world. So, I guess in this matter, it doesn’t matter how you say it, as long as you’re in the right country when you’re saying it!
The point of Rummikub isn’t the pronunciation, the point is that it’s a game and it’s a game you can play online when you need a break from every day life, which is always a nice thing huh?!?
“Rummikub is a tile-based game for two, three or four players. It won the 1980 Spiel des Jahres award (German Game of the Year) and the Spel van het Jaar award (the Dutch Game of the Year) in 1983. Also, known as Rummy-O or Rummycube.”
It sort of reminds me of Mahjong, Sudoku, and Rummy all mixed together. Nonetheless, it’s a fun game to play and I think everyone should give it a try! If you’re like me, and you enjoy playing games online here are a few sites which you can download it and play it whenever you want to! I haven’t had much success when it comes to finding sites where you can actually play this game, but I’ll still list the ones you can go to for downloads as well as sites for other info!
