Get 21

ace of diamonds king of clubs
Card Game: Get 21

1) Shuffle a standard deck of 52 cards.
2) The cards have to be face down so you can't see them. You can hold the deck in your hands.
3) Draw one card from the deck and see what it is.
4) The goal is to get to 21 or as close to it without going over. The number cards (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) are worth their face value. The picture cards (J, Q, K) are worth 10 points. The ace is worth either 1 point or 11 points. You must decide what the ace is worth once you draw one.
5) Keep drawing as many cards as you want. If you go over 21 you bust. Your hand is worth 0.
6) The best score you can get is a 21.

Players - (2 - unlimited) One player plays at a time until they decide to stop drawing cards. You can stop at any total you have (15, 18, 19...). Then the next player shuffles the deck of cards and plays. The player who is closest to 21 wins.

Ties - If the score is tied at the end of the round, each player plays another round. Whoever comes closest to 21 wins. If still a tie, another round is played until tie is broken.

I'd love to try this game right now, but am afraid I don't have a pack of cards.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow!
