Pairs: A New Classic Pub Game will become an instant pub classic.
In the basic game, you want to avoid points, and points are accrued by making pairs. The number of penalty points increases with the numeric value of the card. Players take turns deciding whether to hit (draw another card) or fold. If the player hits and the cards don’t match, the next player becomes the active player. If a player folds, he has to take points, but only the points of the lowest card in play.
In the Pieces of Eight variant, players can discard an 8 card to draw two cards.
In Port, players take turns drawing cards or locking their stacks. The player(s) who lock the most points win the hand, and any player who draws a pair is knocked out.
In Starboard, gameplay is similar, but all players use the same central stack of cards. You’ll need chips (not included) to keep score.
