Please, Pass the Pigs!



One of my most favorite games is Pass the Pigs! My friend Shawnee introduced it to me over a year ago and I've been obsessed with it since. Whenever I go over to her house it"s the only game I want to play. The rules are simple, you have two pigs and you roll them like dice, the pigs have a dot on one side of their body, depending on how they land determines how many points you get. The point of the game is to get to 100 points, you can roll however many times you want when it is your turn, but if you roll a Pig Out (one dot facing up, one dot facing out) you loose all the points you earned in that round.
If you roll and the pigs are touching each other in any way it's called Oinker and you loose your total points and reset back to ZERO! IF (and I've never seen this happen) the pigs land Piggyback...
Then you are out of the game, because this is "obscene" and is no way for pigs to behave ha ha. The game is fun because people get so cocky when they are rolling and, like all games, you usually target one person. So, when they get a Pig Out or an Oinker you get SO excited! As you can see from the pictures above of Danny and I at Shawnee's playing the game, it's the most fun game in the world! I think it should be everyone's favorite game, in fact in 2010 I am going to make it my own personal goal to get EVERYONE to be in love with Pass the Pigs!
