Buraco originates from Venezuela and Brazil and has become a very popular game in Italy, where it has almost reached cult status. The rules of the game are similar to those of Canasta but it is much more dynamic and therefore very entertaining. It is either played by 2 or 4 players, when played with 4 people, 2 teams are formed.
The name of the game derives from Buraco, a combination containing more than 6 cards, which is necessary to finish the game. Every team tries to earn as many points as possible by laying cards in combinations, especially the Buraco. If a player has no more cards he/she can go to the "source" and take another card pile. This results in many new combinations.
