Getting a Pazaak Deck (In real-life, not in the game)
 
Hello everyone,

I have been looking everywhere to find a Pazaak deck so that I can play in the comforts of my own home without the computer.

I could print one of myself, but I want something of higher quality than that. I found a few websites of printing companies that would do the work, but they want me to order a minimum of anywhere from 50 to 3000 decks.

Anyone know of a company that would print just one deck?

Or maybe anyone else who's interested in having their own deck could reply to this message, and we could pool resources to have a big company print us all a deck. There would have to be at least 50 of us.

Sounds great but I wonder if there are others who would feel the same way?

Don't get me wrong, I like card games. I play Hearts, been in wars over spades and killed in Speed. This seems like a big project. My question to you is do you know the requirements for a deck and a side deck?

Commander Obi-Wan 01-10-2007 03:55 PM

Just make them out of paper. :p

Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game, but I prefer poker.

Titanius Anglesmith 01-10-2007 04:27 PM

You could always order a whole bunch of decks and then find a whole bunch of KotOR fans to sell 'em to. :)

HerbieZ 01-10-2007 04:29 PM

I love pazaak. I honestly think lucas should bring out the proper steel Pazaak cards and i would'nt mind if they were at a hefty price. Id buy em.

JediMaster12 01-10-2007 05:06 PM

The pricing should be within reason though. Arms and legs costs are too much.

I know all the requirements, and it would be a big project. Unless they put out an official deck, though, it seems anyone interested in one is going to have to make their own.

I was looking into the pricing to have a printing company make some decks, but they would be pretty expensive. I don't know about you guys, but I don't have $1500 just lying around, even if I could sell off the other decks.

Browny11uk 02-20-2007 04:18 PM

You could juts play Pontoon or if u call it blackjack or if u call it 21 its basiclly the same concept.

Ctrl Alt Del 02-20-2007 06:28 PM

Wow, this one is old!

PazaakPrincess 02-21-2007 10:35 AM

I think its a good idea, I would love my own Pazaak deck if not two! so I could play IRL. I've thought of making my own but like you would prefer it on proper coated card stock with profesional graphics (although I do have the skills involved to design them).

Its too bad that you can't get just a few decks made up.

This issue with selling decks to other people might be the copyright, you would have to check with LucasArts. Perhaps though if you sent them an inquiry it might spur them to consider printing them.

Maybe an oline petition showing the amount of people who actually buy one to send them as proof.

Anglu 02-21-2007 02:54 PM

Well, I'd love to have my own deck, too, but <i>that's</i> tooo expensive, thank you.
I rather make one myself.

But this online petition is a good idea!

PazaakPlayer42 08-19-2008 06:02 PM

Pazaak deck
 
If you want to start a petition I would love to sign it.

HIGH ON PIE 14 08-19-2008 06:22 PM

I love pazaak and I would gladly sign a petition if one was ever made. I would make my own deck, but I know it would not turn out well. :xp: We would have to get a lot of people to sign - not that that would be difficult here...we would need loads of people though.

~HOP

Burnseyy 08-19-2008 07:16 PM

I'd sign!
I think the games quite good, and thats a lot coming from someone who hates card games lol

Besides, Im obsessed with star wars, and being part of the 'gambling' scene would be interesting :lol:

HIGH ON PIE 14 08-19-2008 08:07 PM

Yeah that would be cool. Most of my friends don't play KOTOR and don't know from pazaak. But if I get cards, I could rope them into playing, esapecially if there is money involved. :D That would be awesome to have a pazaak deck.

@ all: How many signatures would we need on this petition, do you reckon?

EDIT: Wow is an old thread...just realized. :xp:

~HOP

Pwnzor326 08-20-2008 12:44 PM

Pazaak is exactly like Blackjack except you go to 20 instead of 21. Save the money and play that lol.

Burnseyy 08-20-2008 09:04 PM

I tried.
It simply is not the same.
Doesn't have that Star Wars feel to it. :^:

Boba Rhett 08-20-2008 09:28 PM

Here's how you do it. You'll need ~17 bucks to spare (Unless we all go in on this and buy like 20 deck at once to really get the price down) and graphics of the Pazaak cards to do this though. Anyone up to the task of recreating them?

1. Go here.

2. Select Custom Playing Cards 54 Designs and then click Create It.

3. Upload the pazaak images to the blank cards and

!!!! - remember to UNCHECK Show Poker Text - !!!

4. Save your deck and check out. Tadaaaaaaaaaaa.


It's a pity that you all missed out on the sale they just had. $2.99 for a deck shipped! I would have told you guys about it if I had known this thread was here.

JCarter426 08-20-2008 09:36 PM

I made one a couple of years ago out of a standard deck and some Uno cards. I think I can remember how it was...

Take out all the Kings, Queens, and Jacks, and throw them away. Then all the Ace-10 cards (40 total) aside.

Then from an Uno deck, take all the red, blue, and green 1-6s. Those are your -1-6, +1-6, and +/-1-6 cards. Then take the yellow 1s and 2s. Those are your +/1 Tiebraker and +/-1/2 cards from K2. I think I used a yellow Skip card for the double card, and yellow 4 and 6s for the 2/4 and 3/6 cards. And that should do it. Oh, and a yellow Draw Two card for the Double card.

Now if I could find my bloody deck... :(

HIGH ON PIE 14 08-20-2008 09:37 PM

Awww, thats sweet. :D Thanks Rhett! Its worth every penny! Yay! *runs off to order cards*

~HOP

Boba Rhett 08-20-2008 09:40 PM

Post some pics once you get them. I'd love to see how they turn out.

This is very tempting....

JCarter426 08-21-2008 05:51 PM

I made some images if anyone's interested: http://s243.photobucket.com/albums/f...azaak/?start=0

I'm still trying to figure out the cheapest way to order them. ;)

Burnseyy 08-21-2008 08:03 PM

Yep, definitely gonna buy em when I get my EMA. ;) Ahh, the student life.

HIGH ON PIE 14 08-21-2008 08:47 PM

JC beat me to it! They do look good though. O.K., I'm definitly making my friends learn Pazaak now. It is not hard, and I could see them getting into it. Especially for money...I'll try to avoid Narr Shaddaa rules though. :xp: I won't even mention it, don't want to give them any ideas...

~HOP

Boba Rhett 08-22-2008 04:08 AM

STRIP PAZAAK. :carms:

Lucky you. My friend already knows. :fist:

Seamhainn 08-22-2008 08:52 AM

Cool cards, JC! What about the backs? Did someone order them by now?

JCarter426 08-22-2008 12:27 PM

The backs are there, last one on row 2. ;) And thanks. :D

I'm still figuring out if there's a way to order a bunch but have them shipped to different addresses. Anyone know if it's doable?

Astor 08-22-2008 12:30 PM

They look awesome, and I bet they'll be great for some characters in the Pen and Paper RPG.

I can already see some of the players in my group shuffling them when they're not doing anything...

Rev7 08-24-2008 01:12 AM

Those are some sweet cards JC!

PoiuyWired 08-24-2008 02:28 AM

Hmm, too bad you cannot do the same with Scabbat, due to shifting.

Now, if everyone own 4-5 ipods technically it is posssable to program a RL scabbat game.

Boba Rhett 08-25-2008 03:09 PM

Thought you might need some back up Rhettsky :D

Revan 411 08-25-2008 04:08 PM

Thanks Boba Rhett for the tip! :)

And nice pictures there Carter. ;)

JCarter426 08-25-2008 04:53 PM

For some reason the coupon isn't working. I get a message saying it's activated, but when I go to place the order, it's still charging me the regular price, plus $16 for shipping. Anybody know what's wrong?

EDIT: Meh, damn thing won't let me order anything now.

Seamhainn 08-26-2008 02:00 AM

Any news on this topic? For that price I'd buy three or four decks. Did you get multiples of the basic ones?

mattig89ch 09-18-2008 01:58 PM

I wouldn't take much to print your own...just some manila paper (like poster board), a color printer, and some imagination. You could use these designs: http://dhost.info/rissa/CardGames/pazaak_board.jpg. And you could probably do it through paint.

Boba Rhett 09-18-2008 02:15 PM

Link isn't working for me. Yeah, you could make your own but for under three bucks you can't really afford not to go the artscow route.

Seamhainn 09-19-2008 05:41 AM

Did anyone get a deck which can be displayed here?
