Silverlight Blackjack for Windows Phone 7

Silverlight Blackjack for Windows Phone
Well, what would you do?

For no particular reason (perhaps because I’ve got lots of other, more important, things to do) I’ve been working on a version of Blackjack for Windows Phone 7. I’ve come across an interesting philosophical/moral problem.

At the moment my display has room for only five cards. If a player gets a lot of low cards then they can fall off the end of the screen. I can think of two ways to fix this.

  1. Spend some time re-arranging the display so that cards can overlap and I can fit up to 21 cards (the absolute limit given that you are playing with six decks in the shoe) on the screen.
  2. Make the fifth card you get always a king.
