Canasta is a classic card game originating from South America and belongs to the Rummy family. Although many variations exist for two, three, five or six players, it is most commonly played by four - in two partnerships with two decks of cards. Players attempt to make melds of seven cards of the same rank and "go out" by playing all cards in their hand.
