Beer & Procrastinating Den

Formally tequila and games…

Threw it out there…

Late last night I decided to stop production on Canasta. That’s because I decided it was worthy enough of a 1.0 release. So that’s exactly what I did, closed it up and threw it in a zipped up folder for the world to play around with.

Canasta 1.0 (May 5, 2017)

My only regret about it right now is that I didn’t do as many “tool tips” and a real proper read-me file to accompany the game. My only suggestion, if you’re going to try and play it, is to google rules to Canasta and get a feel for how the game is played. Rules to this are a bit different but for the most part, they’re relatively the same. I’ll try and include something in the near future, but can’t guarantee anything at this time.

Feel free to comment to this (or any) post or email me ( and I’ll do my best to help you out.

Back to planning…

    Whoa. I was on a search for Sphere-related things for the new and improved Spherical and was surprised to find your blog… with an actual recently released game, to boot. It actually looks really good and makes me want to look up the rules of Canasta again. Kinda wonder why you don’t stop by Spherical much anymore and showcase it there. It’d be nice to have you back.

    Anyway, I also read your latest blog post, and I hope you’re managing okay with life right now… It’s good you’re staying productive. 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words DaVince. I do frequent the forums on SphereDev, I just don’t find the need to post much and haven’t delved in the world of miniSphere just yet. The vanilla suits me just fine for now.
