It took me to adulthood to realise that my dad never ever played games. He is not a board game person. This does not change my fond memories of playing board games at Christmas with the family and one of my very favourites was Pass the Pigs.

Classic Pass the Pigs

Pass the Pigs - classic version

Essentially you throw your duo of little pigs as you would dice, and you get scored on how they land; will you get a sider, pig out or perhaps start makin’ bacon (oo-er)?

In the classic version, you take it in turns for each person to throw and the first person to reach 100 points wins the game.

It is designed for 2-6 players, and makes a fantastic little travel game as it comes with a case, two pigs, score card and pencils. In fact fondly recall my sister and I used to play it for many hours, trying to score an elusive Double Leaning Jowler which would land you 60 sweet, sweet piggin’ points.

You can buy the classic Pass the Pigs game for £9.99 from good toyshops and Amazon here, and it’s suitable for ages 3+ so is definitely something we will be getting out to play with the kids this Christmas.

Pass the Pigs Party

This new version is a variation on the original, but comes with eight multicoloured piggies. The idea is to select a card, and throw until you get your pigs in the right position. You get more points for hitting it on your first go. As it’s a fast paced game it’s for older children of 7+ and you can have up to 4 people playing (unless you have multiple sets and then you could have as many as you want…

Pass the Pigs Party retails at £14.99 and can be bought from good toyshops and Amazon here.
