Rummikub: A family classic comes to the homes of Chileans
January 31st 2021
Rummikub has been in the country since this month and promises to bring many memories to our grandparents.
According to estimates, this summer has been partially confined and we will be able to reunite with our families only by complying with the sanitary security measures. That is why the game distributor Asmodee Chile brings a simple title to be able to play with our families again this vacation.
Rummikub is a classic newcomer to the country, suitable for the whole family and that finally arrives in its original version this 2021.
Chrissy Teigen’s Sober New Year’s Eve Was ‘Lit’
January 1st 2021
The model and cookbook author — who has urged fans to read “Quit Like a Woman,” Holly Whitaker’s book on sobriety — spent the evening playing games.
While some were throwing back flutes of champagne to ring in 2021, Chrissy Teigen was playing Rummikub.
The model and cookbook author celebrated New Year’s Eve with her husband, musician John Legend ― as well as celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin and her husband, photographer Mike Rosenthal ― sans alcohol. In an Instagram post Thursday night, Teigen showed off their activity of the evening: apple-peeling (presumably for cinnamon rolls) and Rummikub.
“cinnamon rolling into the new year lol sober new year is l i t,” Teigen wrote in the caption.
Why Rummikub and Kraft Dinner are the perfect recipe for closeness
One of my favorite ways to spend my time with those closest to me, especially during the pandemic, is playing Rummikub, a nostalgic, tile-based game. My late bubbie Lola, taught me as a toddler, and we played it together almost every weekend until she died, at almost 97 years old.
Since then, I’ve continued to play this game with my family, and have introduced it to those who have come into my life along the way.
Bonding over games – especially retro ones, which have made a resurgence during the pandemic – is nothing new, but this game in particular makes for a bonding experience for me for many reasons.

Brenda described how they have named certain moves after various family members, and how her elderly mother Marcelene has devised a way to play solitaire Rummikub because she loves the game so much. As a token of their appreciation, they sent a complementary Large Number Rummikub game to surprise Marcelene, whose aging eyes are starting to have trouble deciphering the numbers on our classic Rummikub tiles.
