This very portable beer amp; pretzels game comes as a pocket travel case containing 2 pig dice, two pencils and a scoring booklet that also includes the scoring table. The pigs are actual pig miniatures, with a dot on their right flanks.br/br/The object is to be the first to score 100 points using quot;pigsquot; as dice. On your turn, you throw the pigs and hope they end up in a scoring position such as a quot;snouter,quot; quot;trotter,quot; or quot;leaning jowlerquot; (ranging in value from 1 to 60 points); if they do, you decide whether to quot;cashquot; the points (pass the pigs to the next player) or to roll again. If you roll a non-scorer (quot;pig outquot; - one pig on the right flank, the other on the left flank; a fairly frequent result), you lose any as-yet-uncashed points. If you throw an quot;oinkerquot; (both pigs touching each other), you lose your entire accumulated score. If you throw a quot;piggybackquot; (one pig on top of the other), you're altogether eliminated!br/br/The variant Hog Call rules allow the other players to risk predicting the outcome of the throw; if predicted successfully, the hog caller earns twice the value of the position *and* deducts that same amount from the roller's score!br/br/Schweinerei, the German edition, was released by Milton Bradley in 1984; Milton Bradley in 1996; Winning Moves Games (USA) Deutschland in 2001.br/br/Online Playbr/br/br/ a target='_blank' href=http://www.fontface.com/games/pigs/ rel=nofollowhttp://www.fontface.com/games/pigs//a (Java)br/br/br/Similar to:br/br/ Chicken Chit-Chatbr/ Heave The Heffersbr/ Tequila Pigsbr/ Woof Woofbr/ Bulliesbr/br/br/br/br/
