Sometimes half is twice as nice
Pocket Pairs, like ArchiWrecks, began life as part of a game for the ButtonShy wallet games collection. It was originally intended again to be a 16 card game. After talking to those guys about it, we agreed the Pocket Pairs game would work better as 8 cards cut in half (still 16 cards, just smaller) and put in as part of the Board Game of the Month Club package.
