NAME ^

Games::Tournament::BlackJack - Framework for Simulating BlackJack Tournaments.

SYNOPSIS ^

    perl -MGames::Tournament::BlackJack -e run_example_bj_game

    # ** See source for run_example_bj_game() for more information
    # on how to add your own Player modules or otherwise customize
    # the game interface.

DESCRIPTION ^

You can use the Games::Tournament::BlackJack (GTB for short) modules to:

  - Develop and objectively evaluate BlackJack strategies by subclassing C<GTB::Player> and 
    running competitions with it.
  - Simulate a human player of varying memory facility (not yet implemented in 0.01_01)
  - Win the BlackJack programming tournament.
  - Help find and eliminate any bugs in the tournament engine prior to the actual tournament.

TODO ^

There is a Player's Guide in the works, it will be the POD documentation for GTB::Player. For now, look at the code and the example players for tips.

Much functionality is still to be written as well, including subroutines in this module to test Player modules without writing your own game script.
