Have you tried googling it?

Yup, its the same as 21 or pontoon

theres a place called google... it in khazakstan.. it is NIIIIIIICCCCEEEE

21...

1 = 1
2 = 2
3 = 3
4 = 4
5 = 5
6 = 6
7 = 7
8 = 8
9 = 9
10 = 10
Jack = 10
Queen = 10
King = 10
Ace = 1 or 10 (U choose)

U get 2 cards each (some play so that everyone sees each others first card)... the idea is you want to make 21. If u have 18 in total so maybe a Queen and an 8. U probably want to stick as u are close to 21. If u only have a 4 and a 3 then u say hit and get another card.

Basically u wanna get 21... (If u get 21 or under in 5 cards u automatically win)

Needless to say, highest wins... bust is out and Ace and a Ten, Jack, Queen or King is 21 (Blackjack)

In the event someone has 21 in three cards and someone has it in two... the lower amount of cards always win in a tie (unless 5 cards... 5 card trick)

1000% less cards... unless they have a 5 card trick... which beats even a blackjack

thanks, rep added onlyme23. would leave you some too don but i've alreadt given you some for helping me reset the wii earlier & HUKD telling me to spread it around ! lol

No 5 card tricks in Blackjack.

No buying up the bet, you can split a pair but that is all. Otherwise the same principle as 21/ Pontoon.
