Our app enables users to spend time with fun playing Blackjack against friends (also known as 21) in an innovative way, Blackjack with Comrades applies an asynchronous turn-based gaming framework to Blackjack, a traditionally single player game.
Players begin a game by inviting “comrades” via Facebook, email or SMS...or they can matchup against a random comrade or play against a recently challenged comrade. Each game consists of 5 rounds. Within each round each player starts with 100 chips and has 3 hands to earn as many chips as possible against the dealer. At the end of each round, each player’s score is totaled and the other player then takes his/her turn. At the end of 5 rounds, the cumulative score of each player is totaled and the player with the most chips overall is designated the winner!
During the course of a round, players also have the option of using a “New Card” powerup. This is a unique feature of Blackjack with Comrades that you also won’t see anywhere else. The “New Card” powerup replaces the last card dealt after the player has taken action and is perfect for use with an ineffective Double or a Hit resulting in a bust. Using this powerup wisely correlates heavily with determining the winner/loser of a game.
In future we plan to use more powerful poverups/characters for example: powerup Jack of Spades allows you to split ANY 2 cards, Powerup Queen of Diamonds allows you to double your bet before the action, powerup King of Clubs allows replace your starting cards, powerup Ace of Hearts allows play your hand up to 22! powerup Joker allows swap the dealer's visible card!
