Poptropica Tips and Tricks: The Slap Jack fake-out

One of the games on Wild West Island is a version of the card game Slap Jack. It follows the standard rules: you and your opponents take turns dealing one card into the center pile. When somebody puts down a Jack, the first player to slap the pile wins the cards. You win when all of your opponents have run out of cards. Sounds pretty simple, right?

Well, it is, except for one thing: the fake-out.

When you're dealing a Jack from your pile, you can bluff. Slide the card only partway to the center of the table, then pull it back, and there's a chance one of your opponents might slap the pile anyway. If they do, you get a card from their draw pile.

But be careful! Your opponents will try to fake you out, too. The same rule applies: if you slap the pile before the Jack is placed, you'll lose a card to the player who tricked you.

Good luck out there. As with everything you'll do on Wild West Island, the stakes are high.
