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.
Okay, not great!
This game just seems off. I’ve manually counted the cards in the opponents hand and the game doesn’t count correctly at all. 2-tens are 20 points, 2-nines are 20 points, 1-queen is 10 points, 1-jack is 10 points, 1-eight is 10 points, and 1- five is 5 points. That’s 75 points! Yet the score board counts it as -65 points. And when it’s the other way around, I get an extra -10 penalty.
Your teammate is constantly throwing out cards that can be used to go out when it can be used for more points, I’ve played 50 games so far and won 100% of the time. It just seems a bit too easy to win without paying money to buy the medium and hard modes. Another point I have is when you are able to pick up out of the discard pile. It says you need 2 cards or more of the same rank. But same rank is considered by what points the cards are. 3-7 is 5 points, 8-K is 10 points and A is 20 points. Good. But when you have 2 Jacks and your partner has put down Jacks already and you have a King and a Queen, only 70% of the time can you pick up the card from the discard pile. Extremely frustrating when the discard pile has more than 10 cards in it too. This game can be so much better.
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!
