From back of box:
Illustrated rules are included for:
Standard Canasta - 2-deck official version of the game (ideal for 2, 3 or 4 players).
Hand & Foot Canasta - 5-deck game where each player is dealt two hands of cards - the "hand" is played first, followed by the "foot"! (A terrific partnership game.)
Samba Canasta - 3-deck game where sequences called "sambas" are formed (great for up to six players).
Caliente Variations - Special Caliente ("hot") cards and rules for all versions. When the powerful Caliente cards are added to play, things really heat up!
