One of our friends introduced us to Pass the Pigs at a family game night several years ago. We had so much fun playing it, I went right out the very next day and bought the game. So when I got the chance to partner with Winning Moves Games to talk about the newest version, Pass the Pigs Big Pigs, I couldn’t pass it up.
If you have never played Pass the Pigs, I am SO excited to be the person to introduce you to this game. It’s ridiculously easy to play and so much fun for all ages. If you can roll dice, you can play Pass the Pigs. If you are already a fan of Pass the Pigs, then I probably don’t have to try hard to convince you to add Pass the Pigs Big Pigs to your family game collection. I’m sure you can imagine how much fun it is, and you are right. It is!
Pass the Pigs Big Pigs
You play the Pass the Pigs Big Pigs game just like the original Pass the Pigs, except instead of throwing tiny pig dice, you throw super-sized foam pigs. Playing with the big pigs adds a whole new dimension of action to the game. You’ll need a little bit of floor space to roll the pigs, and then stand back to see how they land! My kids have a blast when it’s their turn to roll the pigs.
Just like the original Pass the Pigs game, the object of Pass the Pigs Big Pigs is to be the first person to reach 100 points or more. Each player takes a turn rolling the pig dice, which are specially marked with a dot on one side. The number of points a player earns depends on how the pigs land. The game comes with score cards and a Pig Scoring Guide to show you how to keep score. Players can choose to keep rolling the dice to add more points until they “Pig Out” (Pig Out means the pigs landed in a way that wipes out all the player’s points) or choose to Pass the Pigs to the next player.
Pass the Pigs (original version)
There are several variations for how to play Pass the Pigs listed in the game instructions. Even though the game is recommended for ages 7 and up, my kids started playing it around age 4. You will need someone who can do basic addition to 100 to be the score keeper.
Pass the Pigs Big Pigs game box contains 2 over-sized foam pig dice, 1 over-sized score pad, 1 drawstring pig storage pouch, 1 pencil, illustrated instructions and Pass The Pigs history.
Pass the Pigs Party Edition
All versions of Pass the Pigs are fun party games. If you know you’ll be playing Pass the Pigs with a lot of people, I recommend getting Pass the Pigs Party Edition. This version comes with 4 sets of pigs (8 pigs total) and a handy carrying case. Four people can roll at the same time. You can still take turns and play as teams.
Pass the Pigs Party Edition
The four sets of pig dice helps a large group game go faster. I have four kids, so this version of the game works out great for them. They each get a different color of pig dice and can all roll at the same time. I act as the score keeper to make sure everyone plays fair.
