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.
