Why It's On The List
  • This is my favorite of the Mystery Rummy series... mostly because it feels a bit like Canasta (possibly my favorite standard deck card game) in how difficult it is to hide key cards from your opponent(s).
Tips & Tricks:
    • In my opinion, this is the easiest of the Mystery Rummy games to teach to non-gamers.
    • While MR: Al Capone is a great 2-handed game and a wonderful partnership game, it drags on way too long with three players.
    • Wyatt Earp is a cousin to this series of games & is very enjoyable as well.
    • Thanks to the Kickstarter for Escape from Alcatraz (the newest Mystery Rummy), the original four games are being reprinted!
    • Here's what I wrote about the Mystery Rummy series for The One Hundred.

    Great news! I've been waiting for the reprints for a while. I do like jekyll and Hyde best, followed by wyatt earp
