Last Stand, also known as Dead Man's Cards or the Trickster's Last Gamble, is common variation of blackjack seen in the taverns and inns of the Kingdom. The goal is to have a hand of cards closest to and including the score twenty-one, without going "bust," by either taking a hit (getting another card from the deck) or standing (taking no more hits) in turn from the initial bet. Last stand has only one bet, placed before the cards are dealt, unlike the raised betting structure of pokiir. Played with a standard deck of cards, the game has some known variations: the ace can be worth either 11 or 1 point, all picture cards are worth 10 points, bets are split when multiple players have the same score. Once a gambler has decided to stand, they may take no more hits, even if the game progresses into further turns.
