We are Bananagram fans. So the idea of new games - Pairs in Pears and Appleletters built up some serious excitement.

Neither of the new games quite hit the potential of Bananagrams. Without the predecessor, either of these would have been new, fun and creative.

Pairs is a very fast moving game. The goal is to create two or three two word sets. Ideally, you will have matching "suite" letters (there are four different suites) which increases the point value of the win. The more letters you use, the better the score.

We played several "hands" then moved on to Appleletters in the same evening. All of us (five from age 24 to 52) preferred Appleletters to Pairs in Pears but loved Bananagrams the best. One of the fun things that we didn't do but thought of would be to turn all the tiles face down and play a huge memory game or turn it into a rummy type of game where you collect suits of letters. If you have Pairs, be creative and see what you can come up with. If you haven't purchased Pairs in Pears and are wondering which of the three to buy, Bananagrams is the best in our opinion, but Pairs wouldn't be a waste, especially if you can get a good deal.

Played this game over the weekend while visiting my parents. I loved it! We've played banagrams and appleletters too, but this is by far my favorite. Great for young children because you could use only 3 letter words the entire time, and great for adults because you can challenge yourself by forming longer words and matching the patterns. Beware though - this is a fast paced game, not necessarily for the scrabble loving crowd.

My friends and I LOVE Bananagrams to the point where it was taking over every free minute. So naturally when I saw Pairsinpears I quickly purchased it next. Despite the fact that we were six teachers, we could not understand the directions that accompanied the game. At first we thought pairs should be homophones such as pear and pair. Then we thought pairs could be same word but with the different tile sets. There weren't enough tiles for that. Thinking perhaps it was just too juvenile of a game for adults and we were over thinking it, we tested the game with children to see how they would like it. The children (varying in ages from Kindergarten to third grade) did not enjoy the game until after they created their own new rules. Then they had a blast. From the photo I am now looking at on this website, it appears that word pairs needn't really be pairs with anything more in common than sharing a letter. This makes sense for the amount of tiles provided. We disliked this game so much that I was about to return it when I decided that I could utilize the tiles as in my classroom as spelling manipulatives. The children loved spelling their names with the tiles so at least some use came out of them. Perhaps I will try to play it again with some children and see what they think.

The directions that come with this game really need to be improved. Even looking online didn't help us understand what we were supposed to do. After having such difficulty with this game I went online and located the original Bananagrams site. It was created by a large family that loved to play games, loved Anangrams and wanted a game they could easily travel with. There was a passion behind the creation of Bananagrams that is clearly missing in Pairsinpears. Pairsinpears appears to be a quick spin off of Banangrams in an attempt to cash in on a popular market. I have not yet played the apple game, but reviews I've read about it lead me to think the same.

Pairs in Pears is a fantastic game to play with children, or anyone working on their ability to spell and put together words. Not only does it help with spelling, but it's also a blast to play. It may be a great educational game for grade school children, but their parents can have plenty of fun playing with them too! It's also very flexible, and can support many different players - it's equally well suited for one-on-one time as it is group play. Highly recommended!

My daughter is always looking for new games. She brought it home and even her dad played which is very unusual. It is quick, and can be played by different numbers of people. I am looking for games to keep my aging brain active and sharp. I can also see playing this with children once they learn some basic spelling. It is also very easy to take along due to the compact size.

In Pairs in Pears, players compete with each other to put together three pairs of words first. I am a big fan of bananagrams, and this game was also enjoyable. This is a good game for all ages. I played this with my mom and two younger cousins (10yo, 8yo), and we all four enjoyed it. We also played bananagrams, and pairs was a bit easier for my cousins to do. Overall, this was a fun game and a bit easier than bananagrams, which makes it good for children to play.
