Buraco is a Rummy-type card game for four players in set partnerships in which the aim is to lay down a combination in groups of cards of equal rank and suit sequences, there being a bonus for a combination of seven cards or more. Buraco is a variation of Canasta, originated in Uruguay and Argentina in the mid-1940s, with apparent characteristics of simplicity and implications that are often unforeseeable and absolutely involving. Its name derives from the Portuguese word "buraco" which means œhole , applied to the minus score of any of the two partnerships.
Buraco is played with two 54-card decks (52 cards and 2 jokers) of standard playing cards for a total of 108 cards. Team members sit opposite each other, so that no team member is sitting next to their own teammate.
