It was a scene where they played the iconic Sabacc game. This is a big moment for the Falcon as well as Han’s history with his old friend, Lando. Nonetheless, this is where the adventurous story of Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon begins. 

The First Trip Of Han With The Falcon Was To Kashyyyk

Speaking of the beginning of a story, the first trip that Han took in the Millennium Falcon was to Kashyyyk, which is Chewbacca’s home planet. Another historic moment that happened at that time was where Chewbacca married the love of his life, Mallatobuck.
