Pairs in Pears is a word game consisting of plastic letter tiles inside a cloth bag shaped like a pear. It is from the Bananagrams company.
The Pairs in Pears game involves making pairs of
intersecting words that consist of tiles of all the same pattern. One
word is up/down and the other is left/right, and they share a vowel or
consonant. Whoever makes a certain number of word pairs first, wins. Pairpoints
is a variation that includes a more elaborate scoring scheme (1 point
for non-pattern-matching words, 2 points for matching words, 5 points
for finishing first).
