Can I buy Two joker's and use them with two cubes from my hand? For example. 3 j j 6. Or is it necessary to have two cubes for each joker?

  • Unfortunately like many other rummikub joker rules questions, this is unanswerable without a copy of the rules you are playing to. I've played two different editions of rummikub, and the rules they had on jokers were wildly different. In one edition, I would agree with Toon Krijthe's answer, in the other there were no restrictions on joker use at all. – AndyT Jun 14 '18 at 16:25

From these rules:

A joker that has been replaced must be used in the player's same turn with 2 or more tiles from his rack to make a new set.

So if you have retrieved a joker from another set, you must place it with tiles from your rack (this can also be a joker). Which could be interpreted as place the retrieved joker in a set using only tiles from your hand.

I know it does not explicitly says you can not use tiles from the table, but the "with 2 or more tiles from his rack to make a new set" is clear enough for me.

Of course, you can always add house rules. Or the rummikub set/edition you have may have different rules.
