Canasta is an uncomplicated card game for singles, partners or for 6 persons. The game is similar to rummy where you collect numbered cards. It’s fun and not difficult. Read more about the game and its rules.
The canasta group are a very happy and sociable group of people who meet not just to play the game but we have become a bunch of friends getting together.
When there’s enough money in the kitty we go to a local restaurant, funded totally by our weekly contributions. This particular gathering was a farewell to some of the group for the summer who will return in October.
We meet weekly on Mondays at 2pm at my house in Moraira, near the Paichi garden centre. We will continue to meet through the summer.
