The Backhand Series is the world's most exciting collection of card games based on the classic game of blackjack. Established on the simple concept of rewarding the player if they can predict if the next card in the deck will bust their hand, The Backhand Series is gaining attention amongst card players as the most innovative and unique blackjack variant in recent memory.
Comprised of three individual games: "Backhand, the card game," "Buffalo Bayou Backhand" and "Missouri City Backhand" the Backhand Series is quickly revolutionizing the world of card games.
When you think the next card in the deck will bust your hand, just call Backhand!
Dealer: Do not try and attain "the blackjack," that's impossible. Instead only try to realize the truth...
Player: What truth?
Dealer: There is no blackjack.
Player: There is no blackjack?
Dealer: Then you’ll see that it is not "the blackjack" that is attained... it is only Backhand!!!
No, that's not a typo. There is no splitting, doubling or insurance options in this invention.
All the cards in The Backhand Series are dealt facing up.
Initial player aces are discarded and replaced with the next card/s in the deck, per the Ace Rule and all player aces are valued at "1."
Players must completely resolve their hand. Also in the first two games, the option to "stand pat" is not available to the player.
All you'll need is a standard deck of playing cards with the jokers removed.
I told you this wasn't your Nanna's blackjack ;) So put the kids to bed and close the drapes, cause it's about to get crazy!
All three games in The Backhand Series can be played with a standard deck of cards with the jokers removed.
Speaking for myself, the Backhand Series has completely changed the calculus for my decision making in the classic game of Blackjack. No more fear of hitting, and a lot more confidence in my strategy.
Tired of all the so-called 'new' versions of the traditional game of Blackjack that seem to only disappoint you? The Backhand Series will challenge EVERYTHING you know about the classic game!
