Ratings and Reviews
I just started playing and Canasta isn’t the easiest to learn. This app moves fast and for beginners there is no help button but pop ups during the game but some of them don’t help. For example you have to have a Canasta to play last card, but it doesn’t tell you how many cards in a pile constitutes a Canasta because that can vary according to the rules. You can be directed to a set of rules on google, but it’s lengthy and complicated until you start playing. It’s taken me a while to figure out what’s wild and what the red 3’s are in the corner and what black 3’s mean. There is quit a bit to playing this game but it’s fun and fast once you figure out how to play. Don’t forget to go in settings and turn on the “Can I go out?” Message to your partner like I did. My parents played Canasta a lot with friends when they were first married and broke. They loved the game and I always wanted to learn.
Long time player 🤗
I have been playing canasta for 45 years and never encountered anything as pitiful as this. Whoever developed this version is pathetically overestimating his ability....perhaps he should be occupied being a politician because he is not any good at this.
The player to my right Discards nothing but black threes and 2’s to freeze the pile. The player to my left is unconscious and never makes an intelligent move. Both members of the opposing team very frequently lay down complete canasta on their fist play—-usually all aces. It is so predictable, so boring, so annoying and repeated soooooo frequently.
Get real ! This game rates about one and a half. The developer has revamped this game a little....now the cards you draw or discard do a fancy flip before landing. I guess that bit of cleverness is supposed to make everything wonderful in this lousy attempt to seem like a real canasta game. The moron on my right starts just about every game spewing black threes——
Oh, excuse me, that’s after he lays down a complete canasta of aces on his very first turn. Get real, that just doesn’t happen in a real canasta game. Now this fool developer has de died you can pay him if you want the players to act realistically. What a bummer ! It deserves 1/2 of 1 star. I noticed only nice reviews get shown, not anything critical of this mess!
Game went haywire.
I was having trouble with the game in that my partner computer seemed to be weird and was playing against me rather than with me so I unloaded the game and reloaded it and at first the partner computer was doing well. Then it changed. My opponents were getting 7 or more cards dealt to them in the initial deal so that they were playing complete sets of 2 or 3 numbers off of the initial deal and two games in a row my partner only laid down cards that the opponent team could use with 2 and 3 black threes in its hand. I can play with a dumb computer partner but when the computer partner is playing every card it shouldn't be I get really upset. If this is supposed to make me want to spend money on the upgraded version it's not working. Before I found that if I aborted the game and restarted that I could sometimes get a computer partner that wasn't so dumb but when the game keeps reverting to a partner that plays against me I just want to delete the app.
Previous review pasted here
I was really enjoying this game and was playing it all the time then the programming seemed to go haywire and my computer partner started acting will it was partners with the right opposing partner. It was throwing only cards that would play on the opposing team and the opposing partner on my left was only throwing cards that I needed. Went from a 95% win rate to 45% wins. Weird.
