Kevin James and Jimmy Fallon play an intense game of Slapjack

Posted on


Of all the The Tonight Show games, Slapjack is one of the most devastatingly simple: It’s blackjack, but with giant hands. On Wednesday night Jimmy Fallon roped in guest Kevin James, and the game got pretty close.

The first round ended in a tie. But for some reason, in Slapjack, the dealer loses, so Fallon slapped James as the Kevin Can Wait star screamed, “What kind of rule is that?” James got his revenge in the next round, however. He technically lost the third round, so Fallon slapped him twice, but it barely had any effect. James responded by slapping Fallon and sending him flying off his chair.
