CANASTA CARD RUMMY GIN BRIDGE PINOCHLE GAME
____________________________________________________________________

Suggested Long Caption:

CANASTA is a four-handed game of two opposing partnerships, which
embodies the principles of forming card combinations as in Gin, the
melding of Pinochle, the partnership understanding of Bridge, and the
deception of Poker. You and your computer partner are matched against
another computer partnership, or another human and computer partner.
The object of the game is to score 5000 or more points before your
opponents, by building melds and then Canastas, while preventing your
opponents from accomplishing the same. Through Draws, Melds and
Discards, both offensive and defensive skills are used to out-maneuver
your opponents. Features high resolution animated color graphics.
Requires: IBM or compatible, DOS 3.0+, VGA/EGA and a color monitor,
720K Floppy or Hard Drive.

  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/
