Hey there!

I know it’s been awhile but here I am with another Python project. Today, you will be learning the code for blackjack! Just put it out on your editor, study the code, and explore the game on your terminal. It was quite some challenge getting toward the end of finishing up the game. And, at some point, problems and bugs constantly came up that I didn’t that it would actually get done. BUT, nevertheless, it’s finally hereeee!!

*ahem, drum rollllllllll*

*cricket sounds*

*Umm….. DRUMMM ROLLLL!!!……. please?*

*DRUM ROLLLLLLLLLL (in the background, finally)*
