Canasta uses two regular decks of cards, including the jokers (two from each deck). Each player is dealt eleven cards. Players across from each other are partners and play cards to a common area, so each partner can take advantage of the others play. Canasta is usually played over several hands; the first team to reach 5000 points wins. Jokers and 2s are wild cards and can be used to represent other cards. Black and red 3s have special properties.
This pack of high quality playing cards, comes with a plastic case to keep your cards protected.
