This site offers a two-player canasta only. Partner canasta offers a hard-to-resist collusion.
Canasta is played with two standard 52 card packs
plus four jokers -- 108 cards in all. The goal in canasta is to score points by melding cards. A valid meld has three
or more cards of the same rank. Wild cards are jokers and twos. Wild cards can be used in melds. Every meld must contain at least two natural cards, the number
of wild cards should not exceed the number of natural card and be less or equal to 3.
A meld of seven cards is called a canasta. If all of the cards in it are natural, it is called a natural canasta (500 points), if it includes one or more wild
cards it is called a mixed canasta (300 points). Each player begins his turn by either drawing the top card from the face-down stock (draw deck) or taking the whole of the discard pile.
A player can meld after drawing. Players turn ends when he discards a card to discard pile.
To go out and thus to end play you should have one or two canastas (depending on game option) among melds after melding all of your cards.
