There are five columns on the board for you to place your cards on. You must place cards into these columns to make a total of 21. When the cards in the column total up to 21, the column is cleared and you are awarded points.
You start the game with a pack of 52 cards. Click the arrow at the top of each column to place a card in that column.
Most of the cards are labelled with their value, but some cards are not - the Jack, Queen and King (known as the 'face cards') and the Ace.
|Ace||1 or 11||Queen||10|
When you complete a column, you are awarded with 10 points. However, there are several special moves which will earn you bonus points.
A blackjack is worth 21 points, and can be accomplished by reaching 21 using only a 10, Jack, Queen or King and an Ace.
A large 21 is worth 15 points, and requires 4 or 5 cards totalling 21.
A large 7-7-7 is worth 15 points, and (not surprisingly) requires three '7' cards in a row.
A large 6-7-8 is worth 15 points, and (again, not surprisingly) requires a '6', '7' and '8'.
5 Under 21
Worth only 5 points, you receive this if you end up with 5 cards under 21.
There are also some 'secret' moves, which aren't shown on the game board.
Get 2 blackjacks in a row, worth 50 points!
Get a blackjack from a Jack of Spades and Ace of Spades, worth 50 points!
5 of a Kind
5 columns of cards with a sum of the same value for each will earn you 100 points!
For 100 points, make the columns total 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 (in any order)
For a huge 200 points, get any one of the following: two 3s and three 5s OR three 3s and two 6s OR two 9s and three Aces, in any order!
For 200 points, and a clearing of the board, make all of the columns equal to one another.
