Pass The Pigs Rules – Part 2

Once you have noted the score for your throw you must decide whether to be a “Pig-head” and continue for more points, or to quit while you’re ahead.

Remember, if you go for more points you take the chance of throwing a “Pig Out” and losing all your points. Will the pigs be lucky for you?

You can take as many turns as you dare until either:
1. You decide to stop and record your total score for that turn.
2. You throw a “Pig Out” and score “0” for that round.
3. You throw an “Oinker” and lose all your points accumulated in the game so far.

Pass The Pigs Version II Rules (For Pig Fanatics)

Play the game in the same way as described earlier. When players have scored 20 points or more they may choose to “Hog Call”. The “Hog Caller” predicts what position the pigs will land in. Note: Hog Calls can only be made by players who are not throwing the pigs!

To make a Hog Call, first you must shout “Sooee”, before the pigs are thrown by another player. The first player to shout is the one to Hog Call for this round.

If you Hog Call correctly:
Earn double the number of points scored for that throw. At the same time the throwing player subtracts double the points from his total. (A player can never go below zero.)

If you make a bad Hog Call:
You subtract double the number of points scored. This time the throwing player earns double the points.

The player throwing the pigs retains possession until either he decides to stop or he throws a Pig Out or an Oinker as in the basic rules.
