Included are the official Canasta rules that made the game so wildly popular plus beautifully designed custom Canasta cards that capture the South American spirit of the game and a deluxe rotating tray.
Each partnership aims to score 5,000 points by laying down sets of cards and adding to them. Forming a Canasta (7 or more cards of the same type) is required to go out. Wild cards can freeze the pile to thwart opponents. Claiming the prize pile can make point totals soar.
Caliente ('hot') cards and a new game play variation are included for players who really want to turn up the heat in their Canasta game.
