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.
Not slow or stupid
If you are at all familiar with Canasta it shouldtake you only a few games to realize how crooked and rigged thisgame is! The opponent team most often makes a canasta of aces in the first or second round. It is so fishy they are 90% of the time dealt so many aces over and over. OR they have 6 cards of the same suit or number and simply add a wild card...BAM another canasta right off the bat. Having played canasta many years I have NEVER seen so many canastas laid out first round.. it just doesn’t happen. 90% ofthe time the opponent onthe left is dumber than a rock but often has almost allthe black threes, aces and wild cards. The opponent on the right always comes up with black 3 discards or repeatedly freezes the pile.
CONSTANTLY. Most of what the opponents do frequently occur
In a real game but these two opponents do it sooooo frequently it becomes majorly irritating. I really feel the opponents whole purpose is just to screw up what should be a thoughtful and enjoyable game. Whoever designed this pathetic version of canasta should consider working counting scales on a fish or counting hangers at a dry cleaners shop....obviously he doesn’t have the skill or intellect to be creator of interesting and/or fair game of canasta. For all the cheating I still managed to win most of the games, but it sure takes the fun out of playing !
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.
