The nation’s highest-scoring Rummikub players will be descending upon London this month to compete in the triennial Rummikub UK Champioships.
On October 10th, Stratford Westfield Centre’s John Lewis will play host to the event that will see competitors go head-to-head and achieve the highest score.
The finalists – who have emerged from all over the UK – secured their place in the finals by being the highest scoring UK players in the online heats earlier this year.
The highest scoring player at the UK final will be crowned the Rummikub UK Champion and as part of the privilege will win a round trip to Berlin, including a luxury three night stay at The Ritz Hotel.
They will then go on to represent the UK at the World Championships in Berlin, alongside fellow Rummikub Champions from around the world.
“This is the first time we have been involved with the Rummikub Championship and we are thrilled to be part of it,” said Lynette Norris, marketing manager at John Adams.
“Rummikub is such an iconic family board game which has been played and loved by generations so we’re really looking forward to seeing who wins the competition.”
The first Rummikub World Championship took place in 1991 and sees the crowning Champion awarded the Rummikub World Cup.
