One feature that makes our Canasta Hand & Foot cards unique is the point values that are printed directly on each card. This not only makes it easy to tally the scores after each round, but also makes it much easier to figure out if you have enough points to open.
Of course, the graphics that include hands & feet on each of the face cards is very subtle and fun! See if you can find the not so hidden hands and feet.

I want to introduce you to one of my favorite games – Canasta Hand and Foot. This is a very fun North American version of classic canasta. My family has enjoyed playing this game with fans from 8 to 88 years old (no joking)! This version is growing in popularity and the hardest part is that there has never been a deck of cards created especially for this version with point values and wilds. Well, wait no longer, here it is! 216 custom cards were created with point values to make this one of the easiest and most fun games to learn.
Here are some of the comments we have received from our fans:
“I learned this game with a double deck or Rook cards many years ago…I love it that it has a deck of it’s own now and that it has a few different ways to play it. They are ALL fun. LOVE IT!!!” – Hula Girl
“We’d been playing Canasta for over a year. When I heard about Hand and Foot Canasta we decided to give it a try. It’s like switching from your old Ford to a new Rolls Royce. Once you’ve tried it – you won’t want to go back.” – Historic Waldo
Keep checking back as we are planning a giveaway for this super-duper game!
