Rummikub launches new app to 'streamline gameplay'

The Rummikub Score Timer means there is no longer any need for pens, paper of stop watches as this is all included in the app.

Rummikub has launched a new app to enable players to streamline their gameplay and say goodbye to their old egg timers.

The Rummikub Score Timer means there is no longer any need for pens, paper of stop watches as this is all included in the app.

The app features a timer function which can be set to suit play preferences, meaning players can choose from 30, 45, 60, 90 or 120 seconds per turn, or set their own custom time.

Players can also enter their names to keep track of scores on each round.

The Rummikub Score Timer is available now and free to download from the App Store or Google Play for Android.

In the UK, Rummikub distributor John Adams Leisure has also been busy growing the local Rummikub community with a host of marketing initiatives. As part of new community engagement programmes, UK based fans of Rummikub can now keep up-to-date with the latest news, competitions and puzzles on the official Rummikub UK Facebook page.

Ahead of the 10th World Rummikub Championships being held in Jerusalem next year, the Facebook page will also be used to inform people about how they can take part in the official 2018 UK tournament, which if they win will give them an all-expenses paid trip to compete at the WRC in Israel.

In addition to new social pages, John Adams recently collaborated with influencers to bring their families together by playing Rummikub, with the photos reaching over 74,000 Instagram feeds.
