We've all heard the expression, "Not playing with a full deck". Well, tonight at my weekly canasta game, we did the opposite.
We use two decks of regular playing cards for canasta. Tonight, one of the players had four Jacks, then I put four Jacks down. A comment was made that now all the Jacks were out and it would be hard to get a canasta. Then the third player chimed in saying that all the Jacks were not out since she had two. After that hand was over, we had to check all the cards. Fortunately, the Jacks were the only cards that were extra. After that everything went well and we all had a good laugh.
In spite of our playing with a full+ deck, I won, actually I slaughtered them (she said modestly).
