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.

    All my friends & family know that MoMo’s Shanghai Rummy is my favorite game that was ever invented! It’s so much fun and competitive & I bring it with me to every family get together. I recommend it to all my friends and family and they all love it too. I also love that MoMo is the joker & the great grandmother of the creator of SolidRoots. I’m so glad they kept her tradition and love of rummy alive. AND the game comes in a cigarette case!

    Had a coworker bring this on a company retreat and we couldn’t stop playing it! It involves strategy and chance and it’s the best combination! Me and another coworker ordered it immediately off Amazon before we even got home and have played it with family and friends since! Can’t recommend Momo’s enough!

    Momo’s is the perfect combination of luck & strategy! Such a great game to pick up and play that’s not too complicated to explain! Also, the pouch it comes in is iconic!

    This is such great strategy game to break out while on vacation, at a party, or just a quiet night in. It’s easy to learn and satisfies anyone with a competitive nature.
