RELAUNCHING THE CANASTA GROUP: RE STARTED JULY 2022
The group has initially started to meet monthly on the 2nd or 4th Monday at 10.30 am in the bar of Restaurant Camelot, Torroella de Montgri. Sadly there is not enough interest in this area at present. We are considering changing our meeting day / time in L'Escala, Torroella, area to see if we can get more interest & players.
We now play in Calonge. Join our group to receive emails with details of all our games.
We want to encourage and welcome new members. We are open for discussion regarding meeting venues and days.
Canasta is a fascinating game. Come & join so you can play in a relaxed, friendly but competitive atmosphere. Don't worry if you have never played before. Its easy to learn.
If you are interested please contact me, Ann Rose through the email facility at the top of this page.
CANASTA is a matching card game in which the object is to create melds of cards of the same rank and then go out by playing or discarding all the cards in your hand, the distinctive feature of CANASTA, as opposed to other Rummy games, is that making a seven card meld, called a CANASTA, gives the player a huge bonus, and the number of CANASTAS made usually decides the game. Another distinctive feature is that in CANASTA when a player picks up cards from the discard pile, the player picks up the entire pile, as opposed to only the top card in most other Rummy games.
If you have never played before, we will teach you.
