"A variation of Canasta, one of the most popular games of the 1950's. We at Journeyman Press wanted to pay homage to the past while producing a family game that required skill and strategy to play." It's Canasta with a twist. Slightly modified rules, and a deck of cards (100) with nice full-color-cards with a Medieval theme. The pictures on the cards show 9 different peasant families (8 family members ranging from infant to eldest), 1 knight's family (also 8 family members), pairs of matching kings and queens (6 of each), and 8 jesters.
