## In Between Card Game

It’s somewhat of a cross between the classic card games War and Slap Jack. Players take turns laying down cards in the middle until a “Smack It” card is overturned. That’s when the smacking begins, and the one with the fastest hand wins. InBetween is a game for two players, competing against each other to either protect or devour the inhabitants of Upsideville in a tug-of-war between the Human and Creature dimensions. The player begins the game with 10 points. Each round he must bet exactly 1 point, either on between (b), or outside (o). If the player enters a value other than b or o, the program reprompts. Deal a card from the deck. If the player was correct his score goes up 1, if not it goes down 1. If the player has 0 points, the game is over.

## Introduction

Much like Red Dog, the goal is for one card to fall between two others in rank. In this case, the primary goal is the dealer's up card to fall between the player's initial two cards. As of 2019, this side bet is becoming popular, with several placements I'm aware of.

The name of this bet is rather unclear. Judging by the table felt, it would seem to be titled just 'In.' However, the AGS web site, the company that markets the game, refers to it as the 'In BETween.' So, I'm going to go with that.

## Rules

The side bet is based on standard blackjack rules. The primary object is for the dealer's up card to fall between the player's two initial cards in rank. For tight spreads of three ranks or less, the pays get larger. There is also a premium win for a three of a kind. The full pay table is below. All wins are on a 'to win' basis.
