Canasta can be played by two to six players. In the case of two or three players, each player plays for themselves; when there are four or six players, they play as a team of two. Canasta requires two complete packs of cards with four jockers, making 108 cards in all.
It is an easy game to pick up but can be addictive. Full instruction is given to anyone who has not played the game before, please contact the Canasta Group Organiser if you would like to join us.
