Simple blackjack game anywhere?


Is there a simple blackjack game anywhere? One where you download it, install it, and play blackjack? So, not looking to be connected with online gambling or anything. Just looking to play blackjack on the computer with an AI dealer and perhaps some other mock players.

There used to be a version of blackjack in gnome-games but it disappeared at the start of the decade.

However, I've just been able to retrieve the old packages (the blackjack game and its dependencies, basically) and make it work on my Linux Mint 18.1 system (equivalent to Ubuntu 16.04) by installing the following:

http://launchpadlibrarian.net/393508...ntu3_amd64.deb

http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/poo...0.1.56_all.deb

http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/poo...1.56_amd64.deb

http://launchpadlibrarian.net/393508...ntu3_amd64.deb

I've only verified that it's working at first glance. You would need to test it further.

Smile Apologies for the necropost in a solved thread.

Can confirm this works on Debian Stretch. I dpkg'd the liblaunchpad debs first then gnome-games-common (haed to apt remove gnome-cards-data, small price to pay...) then blackjack.
Many thanks to hydruga

Downloading gnome-cards-data for stretch, opening the deb and copying the cards (as root and chmod afterwards) to /usr/share/aisleriot/cards/ gave me back my pretty, pretty card faces.
