Pass the Pigs game review

Pass the pigs is a fun game for the whole family. I love games and played this one when I was a kid. So I bought it for my kids, ok and me. We played this game yesterday and as I am writing this my kids are having me play again. They love it!

Now for how to play: You use the pigs as dice, the way they land determines how many points you get. You can throw the dice as many times as you want to try to rack up points but if you get a pig out (pictured below) you loose all points accumulated for that turn. If you get an oinker (which is any part of the two pigs touching) you loose all points for the entire game. So it's your choice when to take the points and end your turn. Just be sure to end your turn before a pig out or oinker is rolled. Object of the game is to be the first one to reach 100 points.This is a  Fun and easy game so even younger ones can participate. Unless your child likes to put things in there mouth. The pigs are small and can be a chocking hazard. The only issue we had with the game is that one of the dots on the pig rubbed off, but we easily fixed this issue by drawing a new dot on the pig.This game is very compact and easy to travel with. While it can't be played in the car it would be perfect to take if you are going to a cabin, camping, or a hotel. I love a compact game that doesn't take up too much room in the closet or car, and is as much fun as the larger games. You can find this and other great travel games at This game retails for $11.95
