paulieweb's Blackjack clone:

Used to play this game and a lot of others on our old B&W Macintosh growing up. Was cleaning out my hard drive, ended up finding this again and decided to try my hand at a clone. Hope you like it!

Click here for a few notes on how my version differs:
  • Spent a while trying to collect all the dealer end-of-round comments. The original game may have had more logic to when they show (based on User and Dealer card value totals, etc), but I wasn't about to take the time to reverse engineer all that.
  • The original game doesn't have a strict 52 card deck (possible to have >4 of the same card type on the table at once). Seems like a good thing to update for this version...
  • The original game never dealt the user a Blackjack; not very nice in my opinion - had to be righted.
