While I grew up, my family loved to play Rummikub, a game with numbers. A few days ago I suddenly realized that oma would enjoy playing it with her grandkids and that it would be a great memory for the kids too.
Serendipitously when I picked up Dawn from her job, guess what was there? Yup, a Rummikub game. Perfect.
So the last few nights we have been playing Rummikub. We have tried all kinds of new rules but oma is not very flexible. She clearly doesn't know Calvin ball!
"Can '2,4,6' count as a sequence?"
"Oh, too bad. So no even numbers. That means '3,5,7" should be fine since it's odd, right?"
See! No flexibility at all?! ^^
Word of warning: If you play Rummikub with OCD kids then there will be lots of time spent putting the tiles Just Right and lots of eye rolling from the non-OCD participants.
