"Blade to cube face four? That's a showy move. You play with too much bravado."
"Strategy is an art, Rau. Maybe I'm lulling you into a false sense of security."
"[Chuckles] There's nothing false about it. Blade to cube face two. I win."
―Fenn Rau and Sabine Wren play cubikahd[1]

Cubikahd—or cu'bikad, depending on the dialect—was a Mandalorian game played using holograms. Each player was given four knives, which they would move to various positions on the face of a cube, with the intention of capturing their opponent's pieces.[2]

Fenn Rau, the leader of the Mandalorian Protectors, played a game of cubikahd with the Mandalorian rebel Sabine Wren. He remarked that her skill with the game had grown rusty since she had left Mandalore.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The first canonical appearance of cubikahd was in "Imperial Supercommandos," a third season episode of the animated television series Star Wars Rebels.[1] Cu'bikad was first introduced into the Star Wars franchise in the 2007 Star Wars Legends novel Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice,[3] while the game's name was first given the following year in the novel Legacy of the Force: Revelation.[4]

During the course of production for the episode "Imperial Super Commandos," original scripts called for Wren and Rau to play a game of dejarik. Ultimately, the production crew elected to adapt the pre-existing game of cu'bikad for the episode, in order to have the two Mandalorian characters engage in a game more unique to the Mandalorian culture. Several members of the Star Wars Rebels team jokingly referred to cubikahd as "stabble" behind the scenes.[5]
