Game Rules

In Blackjack, the game pits each player individually against the dealer, not against each other. Players aim to have a hand total greater than the dealer's without exceeding 21, a scenario known as busting. A player wins their bet by having a superior hand to the dealer without busting.

Blackjack Objective: The primary aim is to outscore the dealer's hand without surpassing 21 points. Players are competing solely with the dealer. Success means either achieving a hand closer to 21 than the dealer's or the dealer busting. Card values are straightforward:

- Cards 2-10 are valued at their face numbers.
- Jacks, Queens, and Kings are worth 10 points each.
- Aces can be either 1 or 11, providing strategic flexibility. Achieving exactly 21 points with an Ace and a 10-value card is termed a Blackjack.

How To Play:
1. All players place their bets in sips

2. The dealer distributes one card face-up to each player and one card face-down for themselves

3. Each player receives a second card face-up. The dealer adds a second card to their hand, also face-up, but keeps the first card hidden

4. Starting with the player to the dealer's left, the game moves clockwise. Players decide whether to "stay" with their current hand or "hit" to add another card. To "stay" indicates no additional cards are wanted, signaled by a hand wave. To "hit" requests an extra card, indicated by tapping the table

5. The game continues around the table, with each player choosing to hit or stay. Exceeding 21 points results in an automatic loss

6. After players complete their turns, the dealer reveals their hidden card. Dealers must hit on 16 or below and stay on 17 or above

6. Players with a hand value higher than the dealer's, without busting, win their bet and get to give out their bid in sips. If the player busts, they take the sips they betted

Ending: After sips are given, the game either end or the dealer collects the cards for shuffling, setting up for the next game round
