Okey is a tile-based game, very popular in Turkey. It is almost always played with 4 players, though in principle can be played with two or three. It is very similar to the game Rummikub as it is played with the same set of boards and tiles but with different rules. The game apparently evolved from the original Rummikub through cultural contacts of Gastarbeiter in Germany. In Turkey and among Turkish communities abroad, it is very popular not only at homes but also at coffeehouses.

Usage examples of "okey".

So did Okey Shurn, which was natural enough, since he was supposed to be a traveling salesman too.

Round-faced, jovial, and with friendly gestures that usually included cigars for his customers, Okey looked the part of a drummer.

When Okey stopped in a town like Northdale, he had to do business, even at a loss, in order to cover his real reason for being there.

At present, Okey Shurn was spotting the town for Bert Skirvel, whose business was robbing banks.

The man in question was Arthur Mordant, and, at this moment, Okey was eyeing Mordant, along with the bank.

While Klebbert guided Mordant into a waiting automobile, an old model but of expensive make, Okey listened attentively to the comments of the bone fide salesmen who sat in the line of hotel chairs.

THE drummers were still chatting about old Mordant, but Okey was no longer a listener.

Now that the town was dark, Okey began glancing across the main street, toward cars in a free parking lot.

In fact, Okey was just about to give it up, when the head lights of a parked coupe began to blink queerly, only to subside, as if the pall of Northdale was upon them.

Flipping his cigar butt into an ash stand, Okey strolled from the hotel to get some evening air, as was his habit.

Northdale, and the same applied to the remainder of his mob, with the sole exception of Okey Shurn, who had legitimate business in the town.

WITH that, Bert flicked off the dashlight, and Okey returned the road map.

There, Okey began packing samples, pausing, occasionally, to glance from his window.

It meant that Okey Shurn considered Bert Skirvel as smart as any man he ever expected to meet.

Which was why Okey merely played a secondary part in the crimes which Bert maneuvered to their climax.
