Random Thoughts #12
How would blackjack be different if you played with a tarot deck, major arcana at all? Major arcana = face cards = 10, or major arcana = value of card (so Magician is 1, Heirophant is 5, World is 21...woe to the Fool (infinity, or zero)!). And don't forget that each minor suit has a "Knight" along with "King, Queen, Jack", so by the first set of rules you have 16 + 22 = 38 ten cards out of 56 + 22 = 78 deck. Almost half the deck is ten cards! Would you play?
