When it comes to playing a card game, you might have heard of the extremely popular Blackjack. Blackjack has become a great choice for anyone who wants to enjoy a bit of fun with their card playing. It’s a game that is all about trying to get as high a number as you can below a certain threshold.
The Rules of the Game
The rules are simple – you play with one person and a dealer. The person has to try and draw cards out of the lot that could add up to a number, often 21. So long as you hit 21 or below, you have a chance of winning. You compete against the dealer, asking them to Stick – to keep the card you have and draw a card for themselves. Or, you could ask them to Twist, meaning they draw another card.
The total of all of your drawn cards are put together at this point. They will then be added up as you go, with the value determining where you stand. Then, so long as you are at or below 21 (or whatever the agreed number is for this game of blackjack), you can win.
You start off with two cards being drawn, face up or down depending on where you play. Then, the dealer is also dealt two cards – one up, one down. The value of the cards is then brought and combined, with face cards all worth 10. Aces can be worth either 1 or 11. If you draw an Ace and it being 11 would send you over the number, you are instead allowed to call it as a 1.
After a series of back and forth, you will compare scores. So long as your score is better than the dealers but does not exceed the set number, you win. However, if you both exceed 21, the player is the loser. So long as your final score outstrips the dealer without exceeding 21/the agreed number, though, you win!
