If it had a few more features it could be a 5 star game. 1. Add the ability to change some of the rules is the most important, especially how many points to play to and change to need at least 1 natural canasta to go out. 2. Fix the graphics so the North player is actually visible, especially at the end so you can see visible cards. Fix these and it's a 5 star game. 3. Ability to change card fronts/backs and boards would be a bonus; not really necessary, but would be nice.

A little slow in action BUT seems to be random generated cards unlike another Canasta game I had been playing that "cheated" as it always seemed to know what I needed and would often go out in a couple rounds. I also like that this game shows on the board what amount you need to lay down a spread. I'm not sure of official rules, but this game lets you pick up pile and use out of it to get initial amount needed instead of get amount needed, then you get the pile once you meet initial amount.

I just can't play this game any longer. My partner threw 10s, had 6 on the board, made a Canasta with the 10s and a 2, then discarded a freaking 10! There is no strategy built into the game. I have been playing by Hoyle rules for the last 45 years. I just can't do it. The other players are just too dumb. I'm uninstalling.
