Pass The Pigs!

Ok, so there is this game. It's called Pass the Pigs. And it is awesome. It's ridiculously silly, but it's seriously so much fun that I feel like I need to share it with all of you out there.

It's very simple: you roll the pigs as you would roll dice, and you get (or lose) points based on the configuration in which they land. The first person to 100 points wins.

It doesn't sound like much, and it's kind of hard to remember how many points each positon is worth when you first start, but man, it's fun. Especially since the positions are named things like Razorback, Trotter, and Jowler.

Play online here, though I think it's played here where the highest score after 10 rounds wins, not the first to 100 (I beat the computer with 67 points).

Double Jowler! 60 points! Pig Out! Noooo! Ha. Trust me.


  1. this is an old French game, frequently played around christmas time. you'd get the pigs in your crackers, you see. I used to play it in high school French class, and was always impressed with myself when i rolled a "groin groin."

  2. I've never heard of a "groin groin" -- do I even want to know?
