On the Star Herald in Wild Space, CR-8R "Crater" and Emil Graf were playing a game of dejarik. Crater continued to beat Graf in the game until Graf refused to keep playing. Crater wanted to play another game and went off to make Graf some foodstuff so he will keep playing. This reminded Graf of a story about a famous degarik player.
Sometime earlier, the Takodana Castle owned by Maz Kanata was hosting the Galactic Dejarik Association Championship, which was the biggest dejarik tournament in The galaxy. Everyone there knew they could not beat Bilk Plessey. When Plessey arrived he boasted about his achievements but was stopped by Kanata who told him to be patient and that he may not be as good at the game as he thinks he is. Plessey had enough of Kanata's antics and challenged her to a game.
The game began and the players did their game very differently. Each player one games but Plessey was angry when he would lose. The game was tied going into the final match. Plessey bragged that he could beat Kanata with just one arm but Kanata believed he could do it with no arms. ME-8D9 came over and tied both of Plessey arms behind his back, forcing him to play with his nose.
After many hours of playing, Plessey finally won and received his trophy. He bragged to Kanata about being the best dejarik player in the galaxy but Kanata just walked away. Plessey ran over to Kanata, curious about why she left. But she had met the Quarren, Anster Bach who handed her a bag filled with 100,000 credits. Kanata had bet that she could get Plessey to play dejarik with only his nose and she succeeded in doing so. Plessey was speechless.
Back on the Star Herald, Crater returned with bread and convinced Graf to play another three games of dejarik. Graf was fine with that as he now could eat his favorite food.

Notes and references
- As shown in "The Lost Stories, Part 3," the events of all the Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Wild Space comics are set a relatively short time apart. "Tales from Wild Space: The Best Pet" depicts CR-8R being aware of the events following those of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, and "The Lost Stories, Part 1" features the First Order. The Star Wars Book places The Last Jedi 34 years after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and the fall of the First Order 35 years after A New Hope, which, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, corresponds to 34 ABY and 35 ABY, respectively. Therefore, the Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Wild Space comics must take place at some point between those years.
- "Tales from Wild Space: Win/Lose" features Takodana Castle, which was destroyed in 34 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas.
