A Baccara Shell Game

Jeff Waren's picture

I think it's pretty amazing to be able to make a baccarat game using the shell. To be honest, i would not have been able to make a shell function that returns a Baccarat value. What is great about all this is that it makes us work with a "limited" coding language and try to make stuff that we would be able to make in 20-30 minutes in C++ ;)
