Here you can play two-player canasta against other people worldwide. It is played with two standard 52 card packs plus four jokers (two from each pack), 108 cards in all. The object of the game is to score points by melding cards.
Short Canasta rules: Each player is dealt 15 cards, the rest of the deck is placed face-down to form the stock, and the top card of the stock is turned face-up and placed alongside the stock to start a discard pile. A valid meld consists of three or more cards of the same rank. Wild cards (jokers and twos) can be used in melds. Every meld must contain at least two natural cards, the number of wild cards should not exceed the number of natural card and be less or equal to 3. A meld of seven cards is called a canasta. If all of the cards in it are natural, it is called a natural canasta (500 points), if it includes one or more wild cards it is called a mixed canasta (300 points). On each turn you either draw the top card from the face-down stock (draw deck) or take the whole of the discard pile. If you wish, you can meld after drawing, the turn ends by discarding a card to discard pile. To go out and to end play you should have one or two canastas among melds after melding all of your cards.
