Moby ID: 98413


BJ is an early terminal implementation of Blackjack. Each hand is printed in shorthand (e.g. JC for Jack of Clubs), with the user being prompted to hit. If yes is answered, an additional card is drawn. If no, the player stays, the dealer performs their play, and the round is over.

Per standard rules of Blackjack, the objective is to reach a card value of 21 without going over. Most cards have their numerical value, Jack/Queen/King have a value of 10, and Ace has a value of either 11 or 1.
