Blackjack is a one-on-one game between the player and the dealer. The dealer distributes two cards to each player and two cards to himself, one face up. The object of the game is to draw cards that total 21 or as near to that as possible without going over (which is called a "bust"). Cards totaling more than 21 constitute an automatic losing hand.  

Face cards count as 10. Aces can count as either 1 or 11. All other cards count as their face value. If you are dealt an ace and a ten-count card as your original hand, you have blackjack and will be paid at the rate of one-and-a-half to one. If the dealer also has blackjack, it's a standoff (or "push") and nobody wins or loses.
