The beautifully designed, custom cards give the time honored game play of Canasta a hot new flavor. Play with the special Caliente cards and add an exciting 21st century variation to the game.
Canasta burst onto the scene in 1950 and created the biggest card game craze to ever hit the country. Millions were (and are) captivated by the tantalizing twists of this great game and its romantic South American origin.
Game play is authentic. Your partnership aims to score 5,000 points by laying down sets of cards and adding to them. Claiming the Prize pile can make you point total soar. Freezing the Prize pile helps to thwart your opponents. Form a Canasta (7 or more cards of the same type) then go out to claim your bonuses. Play with the special (optional) Caliente ("hot") cards and add an exciting 21st century variation to the game.
