ChiTAG hosts Rummikub Championship During Toy and Game Week Fair
November 9, 2017,
CHICAGO – Later this month, fans of Rummikub, the tile-based game that combines elements of rummy, mahjong and dominoes, will be given a special treat. Thanks to a partnership between the manufacturer, Goliath Games, and the Chicago Public Library, the U.S. National Rummikub Championship, which takes place every three years, will be held for the second time during the Chicago Toy and Game Week (ChiTAG) Fair. The event will take place on Chicago’s Navy Pier from November 18-19.
Rummikub fans can prepare for the tournament through events at select Chicago Public Library locations throughout the month of November. On Sunday, November 12, the library will host a multi-generational gameplay event at the Harold Washington Library in downtown Chicago. The next day, six library locations (to be announced) will host afterschool gameplay events designed for kids. Event participants will receive complimentary admission to the ChiTAG Fair in addition to being entered to win prizes. As part of the partnership, Goliath Games will donate a brand new Rummikub set to each of the Chicago Public Library's 79 locations.
