PAIRS CARD GAME

Two or More Players

Requires Two or more standard decks of SIXCHEX™ Six-way rainbow playing cards. 

  • OBJECT: To accumulate the most pairs of identical symbols. 
  • PREPARATION: Shuffle the cards and spread them out face down with no two cards overlapping. Select a player to go first. 
  • THE PLAY: The first player turns two cards face up. If they match he keeps them and takes another turn. If they don’t match, he leaves them face up for the next player. Subsequently, each player in his turn, may touch any pair of cards, and turn over one or both of them face up or down; or leave one or both of them face up. The touched cards are then relocated in the play area.  If the touched cards match they are removed, and the player takes another turn. If the cards do not match, they are left in play for the next player, even if one of them match another untouched face-up card. 
  • OUTCOME: The highest number of pairs, or the greatest total of play numbers, wins. Choose one objective before starting to play.
