The goal of the game is to accumulate cards with point totals as
close to 21 as possible without going over. Face cards (Jacks,
Queens, and Kings) are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 or 11,
whichever is preferable. All other cards are worth their face value.
If your first two cards total 21 points with an Ace and any ten-value
card (Jack, Queen, King, and Ten), you have the best hand possible,
which is known as “Pontoon.” In Pontoon you also have the
option of winning with a “Five Card Trick,” in which you
draw (“TWIST”) to five cards without hitting 21. A Five
Card Trick is the second best hand in Pontoon, and beats all other
hands except for a Pontoon hand.
