Hello to all our Members,
You are all aware by now that the Canasta game we have all used for so long, will no longer be operated by the owners (Canasta.net)--that will officially happen on January 1, 2015. This will represent another big change for those of us who remember connecting directly from ICQ. It has been a rough road, but we can do this—we will.
There are only a few gaming sites that meet the Case’s Ladder standards, most important of which are ‘cost free to you’, socially conscious and virus/malware safe. These requirements have led us to Gaming Safari.
Gaming Safari is free. There is a small download that you will have to make to get the game running. The Website is: www.gamingsafari.com. Please create an account for your nickname and download the Canasta game. If you are not able to register the nickname you have always used, please make small changes to it (add a number or a symbol)—that way everyone will know who you are. It will be important that you then go to the Case’s Ladder EDIT USER and change your nickname there so both sites have the same nickname and reporting issues won’t be a problem.
- After you are registered Login to your account.
- This is where you have to download the software. On the HOME page, just to the right of the HOME button, you will see other links--one of those is called SOFTWARE. Click on SOFTWARE. You will then get a window with a button that says DOWNLOAD NOW. Download time! Choose Run.
- After download, click on GAMES, then below that, click on CANASTA 2 PLAYER. Once there on the right you will see a link to our room CASES CANASTA. Enter our room.
Please be sure to contact one of the OP Team to notify us of any problem you are encountering at Gaming Safari—that means ONLY game software problems there.
We will officially stop playing with our OLD GAME SOFTWARE and START playing and reporting from Gaming Safari on November 14.
As always, effective November 14, any complaints and support issues should be directed through the CONTACT US link on the Case main page. Specific problems with the site can be directed to the Gaming Safari help link on their main page also.
You will still be a member of Case’s Ladder – Canasta (Direct IP) – that is our name and that is where you will continue to report matches and other things. THE ONLY CHANGE WILL BE THAT we will play the game at GAMING SAFARI.
As we get used to this new site (just like we did before) – we ask for your patience and hope that you keep us up-to-date relating to the workings of the game and any suggestions for change you may have.
Thank you and Happy Gaming!
YOUR LADDER OP TEAM
