Pairs is a « New Classic Pub Game » designed by Origins Award-winning tabletop designers James Ernest and Paul Peterson. It’s a simple card game with a basic triangle deck: Just 55 cards numbered 1 through 10, with 1×1 2×2, 3×3, and so on up to 10×10.
Players take turns drawing cards and trying not to score a pair. Or, you can fold, and score the lowest card in play. The first player to score too many points loses the game, and there’s only one loser!
Pairs is a quick-playing and original card game, and is coming in many versions with many different rules (see page 2). The game is a new entry in our « Hip Pocket Games » series, which also includes FALLING.
Players: 2 – 6 | Playing Time: 5 minutes | Ages: 12 +
