Pass The Pigs £5.20 @ Amazon
Pass the Pigs is one of the most bonkers games I've ever played - it's so daft, in fact, I'm utterly convinced it was dreamt up by a pig farmer who'd taken to the cooking sherry one night!
The aim is very simple, even younger kids can quickly grasp what's going on (I think I'm going to have to buy this for my great-niece and nephew - they're 10 and seven and would love Pass the Pigs).
You don't play with dice when you play Pass the Pigs, you roll pigs instead and your objective is to score 100 points before anyone else - how the pigs land determines the number of points you score: roll a Double Snouter, you score 40 points; roll a trotter and you'll get 5 points.
It won't all be plain sailing though because you need to decide whether to bank your points, and hand the pigs over to the next player, or keep rolling and risk losing them.
You see, if you roll a Pig Out you'll lose all your points for that turn; what's worse, roll a Makin’ Bacon and you'll lose ALL your points!
If you've never played Pass the Pigs before and are looking for something that's cheap but SUPER fun to play with your kids, then this is it; I really can't recommend it enough.
