Rummikub has been celebrated in Israel with its own bespoke postage stamp.

The new commemorative Israeli stamp features iconic tiles from game, including the much-loved Joker tile.
Rummikub, distributed in the UK by John Adams Leisure Ltd, was first created and developed by Ephraim Hertzano who started hand-making sets in the backyard of his home with his family in Israel. 

Since then, an estimated 50 million copies have sold in over 60 countries. The game has been translated into 27 languages and is available in a variety of formats, including Classic, Travel and Junior for younger Rummikub initiates.
Each game of Rummikub is as different as the combinations of moves players choose to play. The aim of the game is to be the first player to clear their rack of all their tiles onto the table as part of a ‘run’ or ‘group’ and then shout Rummikub!
Rummikub still draws thousands of hardcore players today, with an annual tournament this year won by 43-year-old Craig White – fifth time a charm for the long-time competitive player.
