Pass the pigs!

My life has been forever changed. By two rubber (or are they plastic?) pigs.

Yes friends, I have played my first game of Pass the Pig and I'm obsessed. For those of you unfamiliar with the game, there are two little pigs that you roll as if they were dice. Depending on the position they land in, you get a certain number of points, or lose your points. The first person to 100 wins. It's a game of chance and listening to your gut when it tells you to "STOP ROLLING! Your luck has run out."

Sounds kind of boring up to this point right? Wrong. The positions these pigs land in are just plain funny. And the names given to said positions are even funnier. For example, razorback, trotter, snouter, and my personal favorite... the leaning jowler. Say that out loud and tell me you didn't giggle. If one pig lands in the leaning jowler position it's 15 points, but if BOTH pigs land that way it's a DOUBLE leaning jowler and it's worth 60 big ones!

My new life mission: roll a double leaning jowler. It's going on the bucket list as we speak.

Love, hugs, and leaning jowlers...

Hey I know it is not the same as playing with friends but it might tickle your fancy once in a while and like playing free rice it is a good addiction (if there is one ha ha)
Love Mrs Tracy

I'm not really sure how, but I found your blog =) I'm shocked to know that other people out there play pass the pig!! This is a favorite of my 2nd grade math students!! They get a total kick out of this--and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't into it right along with them!
