Before starting this project think of a simple Python program for a game of 21 (blackjack capstone project), what are the main components of the game, and how does the game flow work? Provide a brief explanation of how the program handles player and computer actions, scoring, and determines the winner.

The main components of the game include the player, the computer (opponent), a deck of cards, and the game loop. The game flow works as follows:

  1. The player starts with a score of 0, and the computer (opponent) also starts with a score of 0.
  2. In a while loop, the player is asked if they want to draw a card. If the player chooses to draw a card (“yes”), a random card value between 1 and 10 is generated, added to the player’s score, and displayed.
  3. If the player’s score exceeds 21 (busts), the game ends, and the computer wins.
  4. If the player chooses not to draw a card (“no”), the player’s final score is displayed, and the player’s turn ends.
  5. Next, it’s the computer’s turn. The computer continues to draw cards until its score is less than 17.
  6. After the computer’s turn, the computer’s final score is displayed.
  7. Finally, the program determines the winner based on the following rules:
    • If the player’s score exceeds 21, the computer wins.
    • If the computer’s score exceeds 21, the player wins.
    • If the player’s score is higher than the computer’s score, the player wins.
    • If the computer’s score is higher than the player’s score, the computer wins.
    • If both the player and computer have the same score, it’s a tie.

The game follows these steps to simulate a basic game of 21 (blackjack) between the player and the computer.
