Yeah, I suck at Pazaak. I'm not that far in the game yet. So, could any of you give me some advice on how to improve my playing? Thanks.

It just grows on you. I was shit at first, but I got better. Just remember - save before playing then bet the maximum. If you don't win, load up your saved game. Save again after every round you win. Eventually most people give you a reward for beating them so many times, like Pazaak cards or money etc.

You should aim to get at least 18 before sticking. If you get really low cards while your opponent gets high, you can afford to gamble a bit - they can go bust easily. Buy cards which can be +ve or -ve. +-1 and 3 are my most useful. Use them if you go over 20 or are that amount under. If you know you are going to lose that hand, like if the computer sticks at 19 or 20 and you are on 17 or 18 then don't use a card from your hand - go for a random one and hope for the best.

Can't think of anything else at the moment. Good luck beating the Alien scum!

I always have bad luck with it, that's why I don't play. Best bet is to wait until at least after you get to Dantoine so you can use some of the valuable cards you picked up towards the end of Taris...

I like the game, It's alot like blackjack, but with a twist. The best cards you can get that will help you win alot are the "+-" cards, you are able to switch between "+" and "-" during play thus giving you 10 standard cards for the price of 5.

I hate pazaak. Is it just me, or are the 'random cards' always more favourable to the NPC than to you? Hmm. Makes you wonder when they win five times in a row, with exactly 20...

I was once on a roll, I was beating every player in the game. They just walk away when you win a few times in a row. Some of them give you cards, or a little extra cash. Then I lost my knack...

I hate it when they pull those stupid one cards out of their ass. I mean they won't even use their side-deck and they still win, they will be like 10/4/5/ then some how they get "1" I mean the chances of me getting the 1 when I'm at 19 is a very very low chance, yet I see them doing it all the time, heh.

A pity you couldn't take out your blaster after you lose, stun them, and take back the money you lost... :uhm:
