Noun: Blackjack; Plural Noun: Blackjack

A card game where the goal is to draw a hand with a larger value than your opponents’, without exceeding the number twenty-one.


Each player starts with two cards, each one representing a numeric value. The goal is to have a higher value than your opponent. You can chose to “hit” to draw another card (increasing your value), or “stand” to pass the turn to the next player. If they stand as well, you flip your cards and the winner is the one with the bigger number.

But there’s a catch.

If your value ever becomes greater than “twenty-one”, you automatically lose. If you happen to draw a value of twenty-one, you automatically win. This is a game of pure RNG, and without bluffing all you can do is decide how much you want to risk losing.
