Plus, is it legal to count cards in blackjack?

That said, how do you play blackjack with cards? You have two cards face up in front of your bet. To play your hand, first you add the card values together and get a hand total anywhere from 4 to 21.

Any way, is an Ace 1 or 11 in blackjack?

Aces count as 1 or 11, Court cards count as 10 and all other cards have their face value. When a player's total goes over 21 (busts) their Blackjack wager will be lost and surrendered the House. A Blackjack (an ace with a picture or any 10 value card) is with the player's first two cards only.

Is 21 and Blackjack the same?

In Blackjack, you're only playing against the dealer. What the other players do is irrelevant. You win if your wager does not exceed 21 and is greater than the dealer's total, or if the dealer goes over 21. In 21, you're playing against both the dealer and the other players at the table.
