Canasta 1

Canasta may be played with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 players but is best played with four persons as a partnership game. The word "Canasta" actually means "Basket" in Spanish and probably referred to the tray that was originally used to hold the discards. It is still often referred to as "Basket Rummy". Canasta has a number of rules which are both specific to Classic Canasta and in variance with other Rummy card games.

Canasta Group 1 is held on the 1st Tuesday of the each month at 1.30pm at my home.

I have started another Canasta Group, which will be on the 4th Friday of the month, commencing at 1.30pm.

If any of my Tuesday people would like to attend both Tuesday and Friday or swap to Friday please let me know.
