Hi Guys,

New here and wondering if you could give me some help with this simple black jack card count im trying to troubleshoot.
So far it just loops without reading the card value's properly however the X to exit function is working.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

It seems to work for me. (although it annoyingly clears the screen while I'm trying to read the score)
What problem are you having?

After the line echo "You Scored $GAME" you have a clear statement - comment that out, and it will show you your score.

Here is a slightly different spin on it using an array of values instead, maybe it can give you some ideas and direction:

#!/bin/sh

if [ x$1 != xnotitle ]; then echo "Blackjack PEW PEW"; fi
echo "CTRL-C to exit"
echo "Pick a card"              # echo pick a card
read CARD1                      # get first card
echo "Pick another card"        # echo pick another card
read CARD2                      # get second card

values=(
        A=11 1=1 2=2 3=3 4=4 5=5 6=6 7=7 8=8 9=9 10=10 J=11 Q=11 K=11
       )

score=0
while [ "x${values[count]}" != "x" ]
do
        key=`echo ${values[$count]} | cut -d= -f1`      # key is the first value in the array pair
        value=`echo ${values[$count]} | cut -d= -f2`    # value is the second value in the array pair
        CARD1=`echo $CARD1 | tr [a-z] [A-Z]`            # Make inputs case-insensitive by lowering all
        CARD2=`echo $CARD2 | tr [a-z] [A-Z]`            # Make inputs case-insensitive by lowering all
        if [ x$CARD1 = x$key ]; then
                echo "First card '$CARD1' is worth $value"
                score=$(( $score + $value ))            # add the value to the total score
        fi
        if [ x$CARD2 = x$key ]; then
                echo "Second card '$CARD2' is worth $value"
                score=$(( $score + $value ))            # add the value to the total score
        fi
        count=$(( $count + 1 ))
done

echo "You scored $score"
echo ""
$0 notitle
