Sabacc Deck, Where do I get one?

Hello My Fellow Star Wars fans. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas about where I can find a professionally done Sabacc deck to use as a prop for my Star Wars Games. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Peace Jester.
Hah, if only there were some Pazaak decks around...
That would be difficult, as the cards tend to change from round to round.

The ... skifter? Is that the word?... has a 50% chance per round of randomly changing one of the cards in each player's hand.
There was a Sabacc deck in an old WEG module. That's how I have mine.:D

Unfortunately, I can't remember the whole name of the module. It had something to do with Cloud City.

The deck cards are small and have perforated edges. But my SW group and I actually played games with them and they are still in good shape some 12 years later. They work very well as props.
Swag Online had a Sabacc Deck project a number of years ago.

The thumbnails don't work anymore, but the actuall images are still there. They also provide rules.

The deck was in WEG's "Crisis on Cloud City."
Ah, would that Wizards made such spiffy stuff. Modules with maps 'n' ever'thing....

There was also a website devoted to pazaak. "Pure Pazaak Project." It appears to have died, however.

I wonder if there's a .pdf floating around somewhere so we can print them on cardstock.
Okay, so there's sabaac and pazaak (probably spelled that worng),

which is just star wars poker and blackjack, what other types of gambling is "official" for star wars?

Chance cubes (dice), sporting events (podracing, gladiatorial combat, swoop races).
You'd probably be better of finding a Pazakk deck than Sabacc.

Or maybe WotC will make a Pazakk/Sabacc deck like they did for TDA.
I made my own Sabacc deck awhile ago. I actually made two. . . well, one and a half.

Get yourself two decks of Hoyle playing cards (if I recall right, Hoyle had the best-looking Jester, one that can be very easily modified into something very creepy), some felt-tip permanent markers (fine point, a pack of Red, Blue, Green, and Black should work perfectly), and some White-Out. Using the markers, you can very easily modify the suits. . . diamonds to coins by rounding out the edges, spades to sabres by whiting out the edges of the spade, hearts to flasks by adding some cup-like embellishments, and clubs to staves by whiting out the two side lobes of the clubs. The face cards get a little tricky, but with a little creativity and coloring, you can modify the existing face cards into other very easily.

Um, Tarot deck anyone?
coins = pentacles
sabers = swords
flasks = cups
staves = wands
I used to have a program that played sabacc. I'm at the office now, but when I get home, I'll see if I can locate it. It's not physical cards, but it's something at least. Maybe you can make your own if you know what you need?
If they released a deck of standardized Pazaak cards (hell, even sabacc) I would pick up two as soon as I could order them off-line.
Pazaak I can see but with the ever changing nature of Sabacc I just don't see it... not yet. Would be awesome though! Especially with that new table that Microsoft is putting out... IT could do it!

There is a better video of it but this gives you an idea.
Oh and there is Dejarik (holo-chess).
Pazaak isn't to hard to do, really. I'm not sure how big the main deck is supposed to be and how many of each value it should contain, so I just made a new system, but theres probably some official post on that somewhere. I used some blank cards I've had since my ccg days and wrote down the values for every side deck card I could remember two or three times a piece and use those. In my current campaign (which is just me gming and my roommate playing) We play using those and a D10 to simulate the main deck. I even worked in purchasing and finding random cards ala KoTOR to the campaign to give it a little more spice.
I don't think it's too hard to play Sabacc ... like another poster said, there are rules out there from a WotC book. I'd like to see sets of both card games, as well as an official chance cube game ;)
Well, Sabacc really doesn't need face-changing cards for it to function. The concept of cards whose faces change is really just a high-tech solution to dealing out physical pieces of plastic. Instead of a deck of actual cards, the players each get X card chips, which change their values as players draw and discard various cards. In it's earliest descriptions, in Heir to the Empire, Sabacc was played with physical cards.

Skifters are impossible to represent realistically, though. . . but then again, skifters are cheat cards, in which flicking the corner changes the card to a different type.

I checked out the rules posted earlier in the thread, they are rather solid, and the cards are great, if you have a method of printing them out.
SWAG changed their website and the images for the Sabacc deck are no longer accessible. Anyone still have them?
Ok, I am late to this post but Sabacc is an old obsession of mine.

First off I would like to decry all the crappy new versions of Sabacc that have appeared. I believe that WEG is the first suspect. If anyone does some research (heh, reserach on a fictional universe) they will find the earliest descriptions of Sabacc in the wonderful (ok, pretty good) Lando Calrissian Adventures. These three old books went into Sabacc in great detail, much of which has disappeared in subsequent publications.

Originally a Sabacc Deck uses the same cards as a Tarot Deck. All the four suits are possitive values and the Major Arcana are all negative values. You win by being closest to 23 or -23 without going out of the range. An Idiots array of the Idiot face card (worth 0), and 2 and any 3 is an automatic win. I could go on, but I will not for now.

If you want to have a real sabacc deck just find a nice Sci themed Tarot and there you go.

I also have files from my research (not images, sorry) if anyone wants them.

Thanks,
Duncan

That's easily handled, though. Use die rolls to determine when the randomiser kicks in and which cards are affected, then shuffle all the affected cards back into the deck, and deal new cards to replace them.

Do you know where I can find a Sci themed tarot deck?

And could you make your files available? Do you have the exact rules of the game as it was supposed to be in the past?

Thanks!!

Found some rules for Sabacc here:

And you can apparently use any 76 card tarot deck. Lots of decks here:

That was perfect, thanks!

Edit: is it short 8 cards? Or am I just confused?

If it is, tell me what's missing and I'll get them in.

Well I'm honestly a little confused by the rules and the cards. The rules say 76 card deck but then only list 68 cards (15 cards per suit, 4 suits, and 8 unsuited face cards).

So I'm not sure how it's 76 card deck with only 68 cards.

On top of that, the printout seems to only have 64 cards. It seems to be combining the "Ace" (value 15) with the "one" (value 1) where it should not be.

Sabacc is a gambling card game played in the Star Wars Universe. It is a difficult game to adapt to real-world play because it uses an electronic deck of cards that can switch values at random. What’s more, the deck is composed of 76 cards, in the following configuration:

Four Suits (Sabers, Flasks, Coins, Staves)
Values 1 - 11
Ranked Cards
Commander (value 12)
Mistress (value 13)
Master (value 14)
Ace (value 15)
Two copies of eight Face Cards

The Star (value -17)
The Evil One (value -15)
Moderation (value -14)
Demise (value -13)
Balance (value -11)
Endurance (value -8)
Queen of Air and Darkness (value -2)
Idiot (value 0)

NB. In this game, each suit has both an "ace" (value 15) and a "one" (value 1)!

edit: Waitaiminute...it says 2 copies of the face cards. That would bump it up to 76, right? right. But it would still need aces and ones to be split.

I was using a scan of the Crisis at Cloud City deck as my source so I may have missed something, let me double check everything and see whats going on with that.

Bear in mind that Sabacc has... evolved over the years as more and more EU has been applied to it, so (like vehicle sizes) don't expect every source to match.
Not one to dig up old threads but I thought this info might be useful to some:
