Perhaps the galaxy’s oldest and most popular card game, sabacc is played in a bewildering number of variations. All place a premium on betting and bluffing, and many include an element of chance that can turn a good hand into a bad one – or vice versa. The Millennium Falcon changed hands in a famous sabacc game between Han Solo and Lando Calrissian.
Lando Calrissian made a name for himself as captain of the Millennium Falcon and a sportsman seeking a fortune at the galaxy’s sabacc tables. After he lost his beloved ship to Han Solo, he spent years living the high life and pursuing get-rich-quick schemes, with uneven results. He went semi-respectable as the administrator of Cloud City, only to be drawn into the fight against the Empire. His quick wit and daring helped the Alliance destroy the second Death Star, completing Lando’s evolution from smooth-talking smuggler to galactic hero.
