Product Description

Pluckin' Pairs embodies the same spirit as the classic party game Compatibility in that you want to match images with other players in order to score points, but the game play is more free form with everyone competing individually instead of in teams.

At the start of a round, eleven images are laid out on the table. All players secretly pair off images – say, coins and a manhole cover because they're both round, or a mirror and a building because they both reflect light – and write these pairs on their player sheet. One image will be leftover as the outcast.

After everyone has finished, you compare your pairs with those of other players. If no one – or conversely if everyone – created the same pair as you, you score no points for that pair. If only some of the players created that pair, each of those players scores as many points as the number of players who record the pair. (You can optionally compare outcast images as well, scoring points based on who had the same outcast as you.) The player with the most points after a certain number of rounds wins.

7 and up??
January 01, 2013

The age range is misprinted here on The age range on the box is 13+ and I would agree with that rating as my 11 year old has several blanks left that he didn't get to each round. We were disappointed with this game for several reasons. #1. We bought this thinking that it would be another game we could play with our 6 year old, however as previously stated, the age range is not accurate. #2. The cards are a little too small which makes it a challenge for those with poor eyesight to make out the image. Players will be standing, bent over the table straining to make out some images. #3 The hourglass sand gets stuck, maybe isolated to our copy? #4. It just isn't that fun. Maybe would be fun with 6 adult players, probably couples. Would be a great ice-breaker type game, but will not see alot of playing time. Overall, it was a wash for us.
