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 twist of this great game and its romantic South American origin.

Play with the special (optional) Caliente (or HOT) cards and add an exciting 21st century twist to the game.
