Dear Miss Golden

Thank you for your enquiry regarding your intention to attempt the record for 'Longest game of rummy played'. Your proposal as it stands is not of interest to us. We suggest instead that you attempt our similar record for 'Card playing marathon'

We have attached our recommended guidelines for this attempt which provides you with all the details you require to make your attempt. You should ensure that all those participating are aware of the contents of these guidelines, and your attention is drawn to the authentication we require when you come to make your claim.

Our standard agreement form for record attempts is also enclosed and must be signed by yourself and any other individual who may contribute material as evidence (e.g. photos/videos). This must be returned with the above documentation in order for us to consider your claim. Please ensure that your claim ID number (above) is clearly marked on your package and all documentation.

Once the record has been attempted and you have compiled your claim and completed the standard record agreement form, they should be sent to us here at:





The record for the longest card playing marathon is held by Lukas Schneider, Roger Keller, Stefan Strebel and Pascal Interbitzen (all Switzerland)who played the card game 'Jass' for 31 hr 15 min at the Stern Cafe, Muri AG, Switzerland on 30 April to 1 May 2003.

However you may wish to check with us again closer to submitting your full claim to be sure that a new record has not been set in the interim.

If you should require any further information, please do let us know, otherwise we hope the event goes well and look forward to hearing the results.

Yours sincerely,

Scott Christie
