Good App

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.

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.
