An event every 2 weeks that begins at 1:45 pm on Friday, repeating indefinitely

Canasta originated in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1939.

Initially, you make melds of 3 cards of the same value which you build on to make a Canasta (7 cards). Cards have different values according to their face value. The purpose of the game is to reach 5,000 points. The more points you score, the more card values you need to put in an initial meld – in other words, you are handicapped. This is what makes the game interesting.

I have a copy of the Canasta card game that we would follow because I know that there are several different ways to play.

Beginners and new members are always welcome.
