From the author's introduction: "There are some exciting new features to this [Brazilian] game. The outstanding one is the initial-meld requirements. Lake all canasta games, early melds are simple, but in Brazilian Canasta the suspense mounts as the score increases. The various combinations required to fulfill succeeding initial melds include canastas in lieu of the usual point-count requirements. The strategy necessary to hurdle the highest requirements is part of this calculating game. It slightly resembles the old-time Liverpool Rummy." This title is harder to find than the author's other canasta books. Item #175
