This project intends to be a simple version of blackjack with an infinite deck making card counting impossible and allowing the fun and randomness of the game to be experienced.
For people getting into the game of blackjack, card counting and strategy can be intimidating and off-putting to new players. Our Blackjack For Dummies game removes those things and allows for the fun and random nature of blackjack to be enjoyed. An infinite deck means that card counting is impossible, and every new card truly is random.
Why Would Someone Want This?:
Someone who is a new player to the game of blackjack, or anyone looking for a casual/fun game to play when stuck around would want this game. This strategy-void nature of our game allows new players to play and learn the rules and objectives of the game. For casual game fans, this game offers a fun and random experience that involves very little thinking, and a whole lot of FUN!What Makes Our Solution Novel?:
Our solution is extremely unique in the way we use the particle argon and webhooks. When researching a project topic at the start of the semester, we noticed that no one had created a game of blackjack that can be played over the internet using the particle argon. Nothing had been published on Hackster, so our group aimed to make the first-ever version of blackjack for the particle argon that can be played amongst three people over the internet!
HowHave We Used Our IOT Skills?:
The skills we have learned in this IOT class have been greatly beneficial to the completion of this project. Learning the setup process for the particle argon, as well as webhooks, were the two most important factors in the completion of the game. Pairing our three argons under the same account allowed for 3 different forms of Bi-Directional communication. This communication was used to send players their hand values as well as the hit or stay option from the player. This is where webhooks became extremely beneficial. Webhooks were used to store these values in the cloud, which allowed for our argons to send and receive data from one another. These two IOT skills were crucial in the development of our game and crucial to the aspect that allows this game to be played completely over the internet from the comfort of your own home!
