New Game: 21

A straight PC conversion of its card-based namesake, also known as Blackjack: each round begins with a bet, and the goal is achieving the highest hand without going over the value sum of 21. The computer and the player both draw cards, and then decide their move - hit or stand, or double, split or surrender; when the dealer has an upturned ace, the player gets the option for an insurance bet. Gone broke? - the game ends, and shows you some statistics to review.

I'm rereading Casino Royale after finding I could borrow it through Amazon Prime. Since the last time I read the debut James Bond novel, I have learned a few superficial things about gambling from watching pro poker on TV, and was amused by a detail of the story: In the climactic hand in the book's baccarat game, besides Bond completely slow-rolling Le Chiffre, he also gives off a couple of huge tells after getting two terrible cards, even though his opponent was yet to act.
