What is Canasta? It is based on Rummy – but is rather more involved and hence much more interesting! However, it is nowhere near as complicated as Bridge and if you have never played before you will be playing like a pro in no time.
If you wish to know the rules (or revise them!) and for other information about the game, please click the Canasta Rules link to the right.
Please note, that we take a break in August - so there are no official U3A canasta meetings in August. However, a number of players like to set up impromptu sessions on the two Mondays in August when we would otherwise be playing and the golf club is happy for us to do so. Simply turn up at the usual time and organise yourselves into playing groups.
While we are in lockdown, some of our members are playing the game online from the comfort of their own home. It can be played on a tablet, a laptop or a PC, but a smartphone screen is really too small for a useful view of the game. It plays slightly differently to the classical form of the game, but does enable us to keep our hand in and there is the facility to exchange messages with each other during the game. It's not the same as the banter around the table, but it certainly adds to the fun of the occasion. If anyone is interested in joining us, please contact the Group Leader.
