You will find lot’s of Michigan Rummy games on Amazon – and a similar game called Tripoley. Don’t ask me why this particular Michigan Rummy Game sells for $25… it could be the buyer wanted a duplication of a game they had as a kid.
I’ve purchased a similar game on eBay to see if I could “flip it again”. 🙂 I couldn’t find this same version on eBay… but I have set up alerts to come in my email inbox daily – It’s a BOLO (Be On The Lookout). I watch way to much Law & Order on T.V. *giggle*.
I found a Tripoley Special Edition on Amazon that looked like a really nice flip… but after researching, I think it might be a lemon. Unless you find this version very cheap (under $5), I wouldn’t suggest buying on eBay for flipping.
