Catch 21® Tips

Here are some tips to help improve your scores in Catch-21:

  • Create columns that add up to 11 to combine with cards that have a value of 10.
  • Play a Blackjack Attack on an empty column for 75 points without wasting any cards.
  • Aces can be used as either 1 or 11.
  • Putting five cards into a column will clear it even if the total is less than 21.
  • Try to avoid creating columns that add up to the same number (unless that number is 11).
  • Create 21s whenever you can to avoid having to discard.
  • Don't create too many columns when the deck is almost out of cards, or you might not fill them all.
  • Counting cards helps! Try keeping track of how many aces and Black Jacks are left in the deck.
  • You can tap a column twice when it is unplayable to burn the bottom card in the column.
