Scarab 21 is a card game in the Lost Desert where the user must make up columns totalling twenty one from dealt cards. Each game costs 50 NP to play until the player has earned the maximum 5000 NP from it in a day - for the rest of the day, the game may be played for free but no more Neopoints may be earned from it. It cannot be played by users under the age of 13.

How to play[edit]

Players start the game with a full deck of 52 cards. Each turn, they draw one card and must place it in one of five columns. Cards must be placed so as to total twenty one in a column - this earns the player points and clears the cards from the column. Face cards - jacks, queens, and kings - all have the value of ten, and aces may be worth one or eleven.

A card cannot be placed in a column if it would bring its total to more than twenty one - e.g. if a column totals fifteen, no card higher than a six may be played there. Up to five cards may be placed in any one column.

If the player is dealt a card that they cannot place in a column, their game is over and they must cash in their points.


Making twenty one in specific ways earns the player different amounts of points:
