Anyone know of a decent blackjack software running under Linux/Unix?

The last one I could find was part of gnome-games, but it has been removed from the package for a few years now.

    Your question is lacking details. For example, what do you consider to be "decent" software? Please consider editing your question and providing details that would make it easier to answer.

  • Sorry I meant any kind of blackjack game that runs under linux specifically as I havent found any so far. Just looking for basic strategy training. Jan 13, 2017 at 21:07
  • Basic strategy consists of memorizing a table. There is nothing complicated about it

To get that original Linux Blackjack game, go here - https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/i386/gnome-blackjack/1:2.28.0-0ubuntu1

You'll probably need to download a couple of dependecies as well, but you'll find their links on that page as well.

I quite like that version. :-)



This is a blackjack game that I myself wrote in javascript.

To install and play it, you just follow the instructions.

I hope you like it, any feedback is welcome.


In FreeBSD, there's blackjackclient (pkg install blackjackclient) and xblackjack (pkg install xblackjack).
