    The_Loyal_Imperial: 9 of clubs + 2 of clubs = 11 + 5 of diamonds = 16
    Kyptastic: 4 of hearts + queen of diamonds = 14 + king of diamonds = 24
    ma_petite: 7 of spades + ace of clubs = 8/18 + 6 of spades = 14
    Kelia: 2 of diamonds + 9 of diamonds = 11 + king of spades = 21
    Rosa: king of hearts + 3 of hearts = 13 + king of clubs = 23
    RX_Sith: 10 of clubs + 2 of hears = 12 + queen of hearts = 22

    Skiara: 2 of spades + 3 of diamonds = 5 + 7 of hearts = 12
    padawanlissa: 10 of diamonds + 9 of spades = 19
    Souderwan: 7 of clubs + jack of hearts = 17

    _princess_leia: 6 of diamonds + jack of spades = 16 + 5 of clubs = 21
    SWBob: 8 of diamonds + 8 of hearts = 16 + 8 of spades = 24


    And we've got two people with 21 points already.

    Red means you went out, green means you've stayed. TLI, horsey, RX, and Sabine, you have 24 hours.

    Hit of course. ;)


    Nat, can't you just let him join next round? I mean, he won't have missed much, since it's the first round and the other players who got 21 already have an advantage. So must play good to win. And of course, just in case, if the other players agree as well. ;) :)

    Don't worry, I don't want to join this one. There's enough players as it stands, I'm just amused at my own hopeless timing.

    Just for clarity, according to my reading of the rules, I do get points for beating out the four people who busted, right? So assuming no one else gets busted, I've got 4 pts? Is that right? Also, are we able to double down on bets if we have points to bet with?

    No betting. Only the person or people who score the highest get points. In this round, two people have reached 21, so they'll each get a point, as will anyone else who manages to get exactly 21. People who are over or under the winning score don't gain or lose points.

    Ahh...well this bit is confusing, then:

    I interpreted that as each player having an opportunity to beat the other players in the same round (thereby scoring points). I assumed that each player who wins a hand scores points for each win that they have--so the 21 winners would score a point for each player they beat.

    Looking at the rules more closely, that's not the case (though I think it would make more sense as the only strategy to win under current rules that works is to hit if you're under 21 because everyone else will and there's really no penalty for busting). I'm not sure what you were trying to communicate with the bit above, but I definitely got the wrong message, which is why I stayed at 17 (max results for beating out the maximum number of players without going over, even though I wouldn't beat everyone).

    Anyway, the rules are the rules. I just recommend revisiting the scoring system for the next game.

    Ah, okay. I can edit that to make more sense. We just did this because it was the way it's a pretty simple way to play.

    Oh, I can see that. It just makes it more a game of luck than strategy is what I'm saying. If you can score cumulative points from round to round with a maximum of say 10 rounds, then players have to really think about whether or not to hit or stay in each round. My fault for misinterpreting the rules, though.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    You do. The points get cumulated until someone hits 5.

    Don't they each get a 1/2 point, not 1 point?
