Card play
« on: March 19, 2012, 04:36:57 pm »

Just an idea I came up with, but I thought I would share it.  The idea is that instead of using cards, each player would use a deck of cards, and essentially play blackjack to reach the target number, being able to "hit" for another card, but risking going over.  X-rolls could be whatever the first card played is.  Jokers could be kept out, but if added in it could be either automatic crit, automatic botch or if the two jokers are different, one can be automatic crit, and one could be automatic botch.  Haven't tried this idea myself, but I thought I would throw it out there, as some people may enjoy that kind of thing.  

P.S.  I just realized that this should be in the solar frontier, sorry about that, is there any way this could get moved?  Or should I just copy past it over there? (Moved by Admin)

It sounds like a cool idea - especially in a Deadlands-Style game  ;D

I would be willing to try it out  8)

Card Probability

2 (4)
3 (4)
4 (4)
5 (4)
6 (4)
7 (4)
8 (4)
9 (4)
10 (4)
J (4)
Q (4)
K (4)
A {1 or 11} (4)
Jokers (2)

As you can see by the number of face cards, you would have a much higher chance to draw a 10 than any other number, if you use the standard blackjack approach.

It could still work, but you’d probably want to make some tweaks…

This reminds me of an Old West game I came across that used poker dice for task resolution (or for those more familiar with it, think Yahtzee).

You rolled a hand, with your skill rating determining how many dice you could re-roll to improve it.

I haven't had a chance to try it out, but it certainly looked interesting.  :)
