MoMo's Shanghai Rummy

MoMo's Shanghai Rummy


Availability: In stock


This isn’t your mother’s rummy.
It’s your grandmothers.

MoMo was our chain-smoking, Early Times-drinking, (alleged) mob-connected grandmother who only played for money and keeps. Rarely was she seen without her Virginia Slims & a deck of cards.

MoMo created this version of rummy that’s been passed down five generations now. Each game consists of multiple decks of cards, 7 hands, & at least 8 Jokers. And since MoMo was the wild card in our family, we’ve made her the Joker.

If you need to hustle some pocket change, this might just be your game.

  • 2-5 players
  • Ages 8+
  • Each set comes with 2 decks of cards
  • Packaged in MoMo’s infamous, vintage cigarette purse
  • Official rules & quick reference cards included

    Anyone can sell a deck of cards, but this, is so much more than that! Not only is the packaging AMAZING and well thought out, but the story behind this card game is what gets me. What a way to honor a family member, I feel like Momo is part of my family now as well, and that is just good marketing! I love the joker cards, the cigarette case, and the idea that Momo continues to bring her family, and other family’s together for game night. Thank you for sharing your grandmother with the world!

    The 2 of Clubs and the 2 of Spades are missing in both decks of Momo’s Shanghai Rummy I received as a Christmas gift!

      Hey Constance – We’re glad you got the game and that someone thought enough of you to give it to you as a gift! MoMo always made the 2 of Clubs and 2 of Spades wild, so instead of you having to remember that they are wild, we just took them out and replaced them with more Wild MoMo cards.
