Canasta

June 2016 Newsletter

Briefly Canasta is played with 2 packs of identical cards and is an extension of rummy, where the aim is to make canastas or 7 cards of the same rank, sometimes with wild cards used to make up the set. The emphasis is to score points with canastas with comparatively little emphasis on going out. It is essentially designed for 4 hand partnership play making it popular with bridge players, but there are also 2, 3 & 5 hand versions.

We meet on a Thursday morning on a fortnightly basis between 9.30 and 12.00 at the BMC. Whether a beginner or improver, if you are interested in joining, please contact me by phone or email.
