CANASTA Version 1.0, Copyright(C) 1994
Larry W. Nicholas, All Rights Reserved


CANASTA is a four-handed game of two opposing partnerships, which
embodies the principles of forming card combinations as in Gin,
melding of Pinochle, partnership understanding of Bridge, and the
deception of Poker. You and your computer partner are matched
against another computer partnership, or with a second human and
computer partner.

The object of the game is to score 5000 or more points by building
melds leading to Canastas, while preventing your opponents from
accomplishing the same. Through Draws, Melds, and Discards, both
offensive and defensive skills are needed to out-maneuver your
opponents.

Features high resolution animated color graphics.

Requirements: . IBM or 100% compatible

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
