I have been trying to spend less time plugged into social media. It has taken up too much of my time with less and less benefit. While I have dumped
all the other sites, I have held on to ATS. I am working on avoiding posts that stimulate anger, hate, and insults. So I come to the ATS Entertainment
and Sports Forums, hopefully, for a more amiable and social interaction.
Since March we have been having game night at my Brother's. We play Spades, Uno, Hearts, and Rummikub. I play with my Brother, Sister-In-Law, and my
Mom. We would play once or twice a week for an hour or so. It was a fun and simple time filler. Then something happened. We started playing Rummikub
more frequently than they other games, and we got pretty good at it. Now we play three to four times a week and the game has become serious.
A game that sat on the shelf of my closet for years, that I haven't played since the kids grew past the family game night, has become a serious game
that takes math, luck, and more than a little strategy.
I am hoping to start a Rummikub club once social distancing is no longer an issue. Maybe one of us will make it to tournament level.
Interested if anyone plays the game seriously, and appreciative of any suggestions or tips.
