Tile Rummy is the traditional version of the commercial game Rummikub (though there are differences in rules).
Tile Rummy uses plastic tiles, rather than playing cards. Although this takes up more table space than cards, the tiles are easier to read and organize, and when used with a card rack (usually included in a Tile Rummy set, or available as an accessory), it makes it simple to keep track of all the tiles in your "hand".
In Tile Rummy, like most Rummy games, the object it to create "melds" – three or more of a kind, or three or more consecutive values of the same suit. You may also add tiles to your opponent's melds, and the use of jokers (wild cards) adds an additional element of strategy.
