Pass the Pigs

Pass the Pigs

  • Players: 2-10
  • Play Time: 30 mins


Throw pigs, hope they land right, keep throwing pigs and hope they keep landing right. Push-your-luck and try to keep throwing but risk losing all of your points if your piggies misbehave.


Good for:

Those of you who love a little bit of push-your-luck and a bit of silly fun throwing some pigs around.


Description from the publisher:

This very portable beer & pretzels game comes as a pocket travel case containing 2 pig dice, two pencils and a scoring booklet that also includes the scoring table. The pigs are actual pig miniatures, with a dot on their right flanks.


The object is to be the first to score 100 points using "pigs" as dice. On your turn, you throw the pigs and hope they end up in a scoring position such as a "snouter," "trotter," or "leaning jowler" (ranging in value from 1 to 60 points); if they do, you decide whether to "cash" the points (pass the pigs to the next player) or to roll again. If you roll a non-scorer ("pig out" - one pig on the right flank, the other on the left flank; a fairly frequent result), you lose any as-yet-uncashed points. If you throw an "oinker" (both pigs touching each other), you lose your entire accumulated score. If you throw a "piggyback" (one pig on top of the other), you're altogether eliminated!
