In rummikub, how exactly does the 30-point rule work? Is it:
- The very first move of each player must be independent of existing stones and with a value of at least 30. There is no 30-point rule in the remainder of the game
or is it
- When a player plays without using any other stones, e.g. puts a run or a group composed completely of his own stones, this must be at least 30 points.
We weren't sure when playing. Which one is it? We played with the latter, but now it seems it's actually the former.
