600 is a Venetian card game very similar to the game Blackjack. The goal of the game is to get the hand value of 600. Hands at values above 600 are busts and are disqualified.

Rules

The rules of 600 are much the same as in Blackjack., with players being initially dealt two cards and choosing whether to hit (take another card) or stay (receive no more cards). The notable difference between the two games is that in 600, an Ace counts as either 100 points or can multiply the value of the total value of all other cards in a hand by 10. The Ace's multiplier stacks additively, i.e. two aces result in a multiplier of 20.

Once all players have chosen to stay or have busted, all players reveal the value of their hand, with the highest valued hand winning. In the event of a tie, another game of 600 is played by the tied players and so on in this fashion until a winner is declared.
