Pair Four

A four-letter word game where players link 2-letter bigrams into four-letter words.




Pair Four is a family-friendly word game where you join 2-letter fragments into four letter words.


200 of the most common bigrams in the English language are found on the 48 double-sided cards. Link the bigrams together into over 4,500 possible four-letter words. Score each word made. Point values range from 1-10, with 10-point fragments being the rarest in words.

Setup: Place the cards face down in a draw pile between the players. Place one card face up as the starter card. Give each player three cards to hold in secret.

Game Play: In turn, each player attempts to link one of their bigrams with one in play to form a four-letter word. Score the word by adding the two bigram's points. For example, GA + ME makes GAME for a total of 5 points. Always maintain three cards.

End of Game: Play until someone exceeds a predetermined target score, eg 250 points.

Alternate mode of play is to find as many "quads" as possible:
