Pairs: Faen Deck
Renowned fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss was generous enough to make Pairs a part of his world. It doesn't yet appear in the books, of course, but we've created this deck based on archetypes from his best-selling book, The Name of the Wind. And who knows, Pairs might just show up in the Four Corners world at some point in the future.
The Faen deck contains images of central characters from The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear, illustrated by fantasy artist Nate Taylor. The game also contains a Faen-style Pairs variant called Hawthorn.
Pairs is a "New Classic Pub Game" designed by James Ernest and Paul Peterson. It's a simple press-your luck card game with no winner, just one loser. The deck is 55 cards, numbered 1 through 10, with 1x1, 2x2, 3x3, and so on up to 10x10. It's simple, fast, and fun.
