Clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds are the four suits of any card game. But Can(Am)asta is no ordinary card game. It combines Canadian rules with American rules, and leads to a whole lot of fun for anyone who embraces the competitive spirit that comes with playing cards with friends and family. Hinda Packard and Nancy Kaplan love the game of canasta. Yet as they learned to play, it soon became evident that every person followed a different set of rules; some easy and others quite challenging. In a comprehensive handbook tailored to canasta players of all levels, Packard and Kaplan outline easy-to-follow guidelines that include instructions on how to play Can(Am)asta using insider tips and strategies, information on rules and scoring, definitions of special hands, strategies to make the game more interesting, and optional rules for playing for money. Through their teachings, it is their hope that others will derive as much enjoyment from the game as they have. I (Heart) Canasta shares proven insider tips, strategies, and easy-to-follow instructions for anyone interested in learning and winning a new version of canasta.
