Canasta is HOT!

Over the past few years Canasta (and forms of Canasta) have become very popular again.  We like to attribute it to what I believe was "poker boredom"!  We all saw the craze of card games like "Texas Hold-Em" come and then they kind of crawled underneath the table as if it they were pretty much forgotten.  Although we know that the "Hold-Em" craze still has many followers, there is no doubt that even more of those same players have moved on to card games that have a little more depth or challenge to them.  Canasta appears to have become a perfect fit!

Among the most popular forms of Canasta that has grown in popularity over the past few years has been "Hand and Foot."  A game where you try to make 3 "clean" and 3 "dirty" books in order to go out.  It is a fun game filled with "hands, feet, and spreads" that is loads of fun.  The goal is to first get rid of the cards in your "hand" and then your "foot".  Then, at the end of 4 hands, the team with the most points wins. 

Newt's Canasta Playing Cards is a great place for canasta lovers to come and get the supplies they need for their next game night.  A site that was created just for Canasta Lovers!
