I've been enjoying this game quite a bit for the past month or two, and I gotta say this game packs a whole lot into its tiny package! I love how infinitely variable the game feels as I'm switching up my strategy from round to round, not to mention (as an RPG player), always having dice and card with me while I'm on the run makes this a quick favorite when I need to burn a little bit of time in between classes and meetings! 


Fantastic job Jon, keep up the awesome work!!  

Wow, thank you so much! I'm glad to hear this one has become a staple for you and really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment and review for me. I have some more planned for this project, so look forward to that when I can get around to it ;) Let me know if you have any ideas for the game too as I'd love to hear 'em!

Alright, so I decided that I either am playing it wrong or that the jokers varients are actually surprisingly strong + helpful. And kinda just played through 26 bounties on two decks.


That aside. though. So, what are we supposed to actually do if the joker shows up in a lead?

Appreciate the comment and question! There's a reason the Joker variant was a scrapped beta version, which I mostly included in here for fun. I'm not at all surprised it made the game a lot easier for you (though having the Jokers show up with any consistency is somewhat surprising, you must be quite lucky), but as long as you are having fun, great!

As for your actual question, please note the final sentence in its section (pg. 13 in the regular book):

"If the Joker should appear from your draw or in your reserves you get to reap all the rewards without any of the work! Choose any 2 bounty rewards, remove the Joker from the game, and shuffle the discard thoroughly back into the deck."

So if you have a Joker appear as a lead it's an auto clear, which is obviously stupid strong. You may choose to trigger this effect later if you have an open lead you want to just set it in, but that comes with its own pros and cons, I wouldn't recommend it personally.

Thanks again for taking the time, I hope that helped :) Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Blackjack Bounty is an innovative reimagining of an old classic, adding newfound dimensionality into solitaire that gives it a Wild West tone. Here, elements from tabletop games come in to make every match refreshing and novel: I've gone through a few games to get a feel for things, and it's clear that there's enough variability to make whole afternoons disappear in the blink of an eye. Beginning players can set the game up at lower difficulties to get a feel for things, while more advanced players can tune the parameters for a tailor-made experience to challenge their skill. With something for everyone, Blackjack Bounty is a fantastic way of bringing the Old West right into one's living room!

I'm glad you enjoyed the game, thank you! What you've said is incredibly kind. Really appreciate you taking the time to comment and review as well :)

A cool take on Blackjack and one of the more enjoyable solitary games I've come across in a long time. The versatility of difficulties also makes it great for long-time card players looking for a challenge, as well as newbies that want something easy to dive into with a familiar backbone (in this case, Blackjack!). I highly recommend this to all; worth every cent.

Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed the game and took the time to comment and rate :)
