DESCRIPTION

Canasta is a very social rummy-style card game, invented in Uruguay in the 1930s, suitable for 2-6 players per table playing as pairs. It is possible to play as individuals, but is best played with 4 people per table playing as two pairs. It uses two packs of playing cards with four jokers per table. There are many variations of the game, so the rules we use are based on the classic game.

It is very quick game to learn but intriguing to play. Incidentally, Canasta means basket in Spanish and refers to the ‘basket' that held the discards.

We have three Canasta groups and all use very similar rules.

Canasta 1

We are a very social Group, and take it in turn to host the evening, with nibbles being provided by the hosts, and everyone providing their choice of drinks. As some members are unable to host, being able to host is not a requirement to join the Group. We car share where possible to get to venues.

There is a waiting list to join the Group. We invite people on the waiting list to come along to our meetings if we know that there will be a place for them at a meeting.
