Trying to remember a "dice" game...

Post by imp522 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 11:40 pm

Years ago I played a game that consisted of Pigs as dice and the way the pigs fell where how points scored. Can anyone tell me the name of the game and if possible where I might find it?

Thanks,
Dave

Dave,

The game is called 'Pass the Pigs'.

The hobby store I used to work at carried it. I think I remember Toys R Us having it as well.

I am sure you could find it on Amazon or eBay.

Hope that helps.

Thank you,

It looks like Alliance Games carries it so any LGS should be able to order it for you.
By trading with me you agree that all signature based trade rules are not in force. If it isn't in the PM thread then it doesn't apply.

Sadly the nearest LGS is 2+ hours from me. I live in a gaming void.

I know how you feel.

I happen to like living in my small town but sometimes the gaming void can get to you.

If you haven't ordered it yet you may try Wal-Mart or Target, I think at least one of them used to carry it.

Thanks for the tip I'll check the walmarts and targets by me first then.

On the plus side I can play whatever rules/periods I want.

Slightly OT:

A new game store opened up in Downers Grove recently which would only be about an hour drive for you:

I remember playing it as a kid. I giggled almost every time I rolled "makin bacon." LOL

I have this game in my glovebox in case we go somewhere and the wife makes the decision to wait the hour and a half for a table...

Its very fun and I enjoy it for some silly reason.

Man. . .that one's a classic. What makes it more fun is playing with your hyper-competitive and completely insane family.
