I tried a blackjack like character creation.Hmm... I remember something about people using decks before. If you recall more let me know!
You make six piles You deal 1 face up card to each pile, then numbers are equal to the numbers the ACE can be a 1 or a 10, and the other face cards are 10. The player can choose for you to deal into each pile as many times as they want (until run out of cards) however the ending number is only the 1s digit not the 10s...then you add that number to 8.
so lets say I deal a 2, a 7, and an ace (count as 1) that is 11 so 1+8=9 but if that ace counts as a 10 it is 19, and as such 9+8=17
someone either here or facebook had one that was more like playing solitaire.
