Play with friends

Play your way

Customize the rules the way your family plays. If you don’t see a rule your family uses then let us know.

Customize your game

Sophisticated for the experienced player, accessible for the newbie, fun for all!

Experience and strategy matter, but no matter how good you are there’s always a chance a newbie will go out on you and catch you with your foot and wipe the floor. Chance and randomness keep the game exciting and fun to play. We love it when a player new to Hand & Foot finishes their first game and we hear “Can we play again?”

Beautiful design

We re-imagined what Hand & Foot can be when you are not bound to physical cards or game table. We removed the clutter that characterize other online games to create a clean, bright and fun playing experience.

Walter Our story

Hi there. My name is Walter and ever since I can remember my family has played cards. At first Canasta, and then a version of Canasta called Hand & Foot. We would gather together at summer family reunions and stay up late into the night, and often the next morning, playing together around the table. Even if you were not an actual family member, if you played, you became family.

The summer of 2020 was the first year we could not gather together for our reunion and play Hand & Foot, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I looked at the canasta and Hand & Foot games available online and never found anything that let our family play with the rules we wanted to use. Thus, the idea for Hand & Foot Friends & Family Edition™ was born. It had to accomplish two things: give my family a way to play even when separated geographically AND let us play the way WE wanted to play.

After writing down some notes on what the game should be I started actually developing a prototype of the game in August 2020 and then hired a visual designer to help with the graphics and user interface/experience in October 2020. We finished the initial prototype just in time for Thanksgiving 2020 and have been iterating and improving it ever since. Now we are ready to share it with you.

Our goal is to create the best online version of Hand & Foot available. We hope you and yours experience the joy our family has when we play together, and want you to make the game your own.

Created for Hand & Foot players by Hand & Foot players
“I like the balance of luck and skill involved in this game. It’s not all skill like chess and it’s not all luck like Bunco. It’s a game you can get better at and, even though I might not win against a more experienced team, the game makes me FEEL like I could, and that makes me want to play again.”
Janey, California, first-time Hand & Foot Friends & Family Edition player
