#79: Mystery Rummy 1: Jack the Ripper

"Old School" Rummy meets "New Jack" action cards in #79 - and the combination is a game ripe with theme, atmosphere, and opportunities for brilliant card play. Mike Fitzgerald is creating a spectacular collection of card games - there are four games in the series (so far):
  • Mystery Rummy #1: Jack the Ripper (the most gamer-y of the foursome)
  • Mystery Rummy #2: Murders in the Rue Morgue (an excellent partnership game)
  • Mystery Rummy #3: Jekyll & Hyde (the simplest of the games and just for two players)
  • Mystery Rummy #4: Al Capone (a Canasta-based version with some very interesting twists)

Ben Baldanza: "Mike Fitz's masterpiece!"

Nick Sauer: "Brilliant advancement to the rummy card engine. The gavel cardsand buried Ripper Escapes option make this a regular at our lunch game group."

Mark Jackson: "Stunning game with incredible tension... and, more importantly, the first of a set of great card games."
