Pairs: Deluxe Fruit Deck


PAIRS is the "New Classic Pub Game" introduced by Cheapass Games in 2014. This deck is Andrew Kolb's interpretation of the Fruit Deck, artwork from the Deluxe Edition in 2017.

Pairs is a basic press-your-luck game in which the goal is not to catch a pair. The game is fast, easy, and has only one loser, who must perform a penalty like singing a song or making a strange noise.

The deck has just the numbers 1 through 10, with each card appearing in a quantity equal to its rank. That means 1x1, 2x2, 3x3, and so on. This versatile deck can play dozens of original games.

Since its release, Pairs has expanded to include more than 50 original games and dozens of different decks. You can find all the rules, including the original game and all of the variations, at Crab Fragment Labs. Or jump straight to

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
