What the heck is Pants!?

Probably almost hopefully everything you ever wanted to know about Pants! the Card Game.

How is Pants! played?

First, you have to find other people who like playing card games. The rest is super easy yet awesomely challenging.

The cards consist of different wardrobe categories: Classy, Sporty, Casual, Adventure. There are four unique types of pants in each wardrobe category. For example, Classy Pants consists of stripey dress pants, tuxedo pants, a gown, and a kilt.

The object is to collect three full sets of pants from three different categories. The first player to do that wins. There are wild cards you can play to thwart your opponents’ pants collection: suspenders and gift card. Just when you’re ready to lay down your winning set of pants, another player can steal your set or make you put it back. Ouch.

There’s also an underwear wild card you can use with three pairs of pants in a category to make a complete set. Wee!

Game play goes like this: Each player is dealt five cards. In a turn of play, you can:

  •  Lay down a complete set of pants
  •  Discard pants cards you don’t need
  •  Pick from the discard pile to get cards you need

That’s it, in a nutshell. We have our own little strategies we use, and sometimes we come up with new “house” rules. Sometimes we’ll increase the number of sets you need to win to three if we have fewer players.

What are the cards like?

There are 54 cards to a deck. They are the size of a regular deck of playing cards: 3.5″ x 2.5,” with round corners.

How many players? What ages?

This game can be played by the whole family. It works great with 2–5 players.

What’s the packaging like?

It’s a pretty standard tuck box, like a deck of cards. It has a super cool Pants! design on it.

Can I find Pants! in stores?

We’re working on it! If you love Pants!, we’d love it if you recommend it to your favorite independent toy shop.
