    At the meet it was mentioned that maybe we could learn how to play Saabac/Sabaac, and instead of having poker nights, we could have Saabac/sabaac night instead. I think this would be way cool.
    If anyone here knows how to play, or what the rules are, or even what the object of the game is. Post on this thread.

    I've got the rules and cards right here.. I'll bring them tomorrow night.
    Basically the game is like Blackjack, except you get 23 not 21 and it can be a positive or negative score. The only thing that beats a pure sabacc (23) is the "Idiots array" consisting of the idiot card (0) and a 2 and a 3... a literal 23

    OK I look forward to someone teaching me--although to be fair card games is something that takes a bit of practice for me. :)

    I remember downloading Sabbacc for Windows about 2 years ago. I'm pretty sure I got it from www.wulfert.com under the download games section.
