Experienced players of multiple forms of Canasta will attest to the fact that the red three has lost its luster over the years. In the initial game of Canasta, all four red threes scored a total of 800 points which was 16% of the winning score; in the advanced game of Bolivia, a team obtaining all the red threes achieved only 7% of the winning score. The red three had become a minor event. Royal Canasta not only puts the shine back on the red three, but it adds some polish to the lowly black three as well. The Super Royal Canasta contains six red threes and one black three; a Royal Canasta contains at least three red threes with the others being black. Because of the limitation of the cards available during play of a hand, only one team can complete a Royal Canasta; and this is the source of new excitement and strategy in this all-time favorite form of rummy!
