Canasta is a card game played with two packs of cards, including jokers, and is a progressive form of Rummy. It can be played by 2-6 players but is most popular for four, two a side, and the winning pair is the first to achieve 5000 points.
We now often play Bolivia, a development of Canasta, designed for players who wish to progress to a more advanced form, and an extra pack of cards is needed for this.
As the game is a little complex, it does require two or three sessions to learn in the initial stages and we meet weekly, every Thursday afternoon. Newcomers who are U3A members are most welcome.
