Canasta burst onto the scene in 1950 and became the hottest game craze to ever hit the nation. Millions of players were captivated by the tantalizing twists of this great South American game.
For Canasta's 50th Anniversary, Winning Moves is proud to reintroduce this beloved game with custom designed cards that capture its South American flavor. Each card vividly displays its role and scoring value.
Game play is authentic. Your partnership aims to score 5,000 points by laying down sets of cards and adding to them. Claiming the Prize pile can make your point total soar. Freezing the Prize pile helps to thwart your opponents. Form a Canasta (7 or more cards of the same type), then go out and claim your bonuses!
Also includes special Caliente (hot) cards for an exciting new variation.
