Gaby's Crazy for Canasta

the most recent card game to achieve worldwide status as a classic

The game of Canasta was devised by attorney Segundo Sanchez Santos and his Bridge partner, architect Alberto Serrato in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1939.

Canasta thrilled Uruguay first, then Argentina, Chile, Peru, and soon all of South America, eventually making its way to the USA and Europe, after WWII. The global expansion triggered the development of many different variations.

Growing up, Gaby and her family played Canasta at every family function and reunion. So much so, it's become a right of passage.

Kristen's super slick when it comes to Spit

This wild and crazy game is all about speed and quickness!

The goal of Spit is to get rid of one's cards as quickly as possible. The players do not take turns; physical speed and alertness is required to play faster than the opponent.

On each deal, the player who is first to go through all of their starting cards can reduce the number of cards for the next deal.

By being successful for several deals, clearing all of one's cards becomes possible, and if this is carried out successfully, one wins the game.

Scott's in love with hearts

the card game that's
anything but romantic

It’s believed that the first version of Hearts was created in Spain around 1750. More than one hundred years later, it made its first appearance in America, where many thought it must have come from Germany.

The game has taken many variations and evolved quite a bit in the last 270 years. Most notably, different parts of the world and even different areas of the country play by different scoring rules.

There are more than a dozen ways you can play Hearts today. Most games have fabulous (if not irrelevant) names including Auction Hearts, Black Maria (popular in Britain), Black Lady (popular in the United States), Omnibus Hearts, and Heartsette.
