Sabacc Credit Chips
Posted by Chris Carpenter on
With a lot of time on my hands now, I'm coming up with more creative ways to engage the family. I purchased a set of Sabaac cards from Star Wars Galaxy Edge. The card deck is cool but you can't really get that Sabacc experience with out some credits to make it lively. I didn't want to use regular poker chips so I needed to make something that matches up.
I started playing around with some ideas. The deck uses three suits. Triangle, square and circle. I wanted to incorporate these into the design like traditional poker chips. The first go was OK. I laser cut it out of wood. I tried some different stains and the effect just didn't quite work.
I tried it again and came up with something with more of Star Wars vibe. The prequel Coruscant always gave me a Art Deco vibe. I tried to channel some of that into the design. I also decided to cut it out of transparent acrylic. I did them in red, blue and green. The wood looked pretty good as well.
I play tested with the kids and it was pretty big hit. Of course, I lost. Gonna have to get one of my Micro Machine Millennium Falcons to use as collateral. The Sabacc,chips are up for sale if you'd like a set. The are available in wood or acrylic.
