It was extremely fashionable in the 1950's, threatening for a while to displace Bridge as the premier card game. The rules were standardised in North America around 1950, and it was this version of the game, known as Classic Canasta that gained worldwide popularity. In many countries, Classic Canasta is still played in more or less its original form, sometimes alongside a number of variations.
