This is a "chip" mixer for use when playing the game of RUMMIKUB. You might say, as my wife Sharon said, why do we need a chip mixer. Well the truth is, at the beginning of every new Rummikub game, all the chips must be poured out on the table top, each one turned over face down, and then thoroughly mixed. That generally takes us about 2 to 4 minutes, but this new CHIP MUSHER can accomplish it in less than a minute ! Take a look at the video !
