dear rummikub players,

on 01.02.08 we modificate the rules:
2 and 3 player games must use the new endgame rule for ranking
2 and 3 player games with old rules are still possible, but without ranking
4 player games are not touched by this modification (only the old rules)

in detail we change the current rules 11.4 (no tiles left in pool)

if a player takes the last tile out of pool the game continues by the normal rules. (turn goes to next player)

the player has 2 possibilities now:
1. he plays one or more tiles from rack
2. he pass his turn (click at button: finish move)

concerning 1:
the player can add or manipulate tiles by the normal rules
concerning 2:
if a player pass this concluedes the players turn

ATTENTION:
if all players pass in the direct following turns the game ends.
(also if a player goes "rummikub")

the player with the lowest count on his/her rack is the winner. (joker counts 50)
in the rare case of egual points , the win goes to the player
with less tiles at rack.

to give an example: (2 player game)

player a takes last tile from pool => turn goes to player b

player b pass => turn goes to player a

if player a also pass his move, the game ends. he wont do it, if he thinks, he has more points at rack.

player a plays a set from rack => turn goes to player b

player b pass => player a plays a set from rack

player b isnt sure if he has less points at rack now => plays a set

player a pass => player b plays a set

etc etc.

from this instance one can see, that you always have to decide between:
playing one or more tiles from rack or pass your turn.

we think the new rule follows more the character of the game, in the rare event that all the tiles
from pool are used, before one player goes rummikub.

we really hope the new rule brings more fun for all.
