The object of this game is to be the first player who rolls a total of 100 points or the player with the most points if no one has reached 100 points by the end of the game.
Follow these steps to play the game:
Q. I've noticed that snouters and leaning jowlers don't appear that
often. Why is that?
A. This game plays just like the real Pass the Pigs game. The odds of when a player would actually roll a leaning jowler or a snouter were calculated and incorporated into this game.
Q. I just got an oinker and it only shows that I currently have zero points, but it didn't wipe out the points before that. Why not?
A. Just like the real game, this game will only wipe out your current points. You do have zero points, but there is no need to change all of your points in your previous rounds to zero.
Q. The computer just beat me again, does it cheat?
A. No. Many players lose because they can't do math or get too emotional during the game. The computer does not have these problems and is therefore a tough opponent. You can change the computer level by clicking on the Options button.
Q. In the real game you can "Hog Call" and get points by guessing the roll an opponent will get before they roll. How do you do that in this game?
A. That is an optional rule which is not included in this game. Real pigs players stick to the basics.
Q. Where is the Piggyback or Makin' Bacon position where one pig balances on top of the other?
A. I could lie and tell you that it's in the game but very rarely happens and you wouldn't know any better, but that's not my style. I've never seen it in real life and it is currently not in this game. Look for it in a future release.
Q. Can I play the game if I'm not connected to the Internet?
A. Yes. You can download a copy of the game that you can play locally by clicking here. Just unzip this file and then launch the PassThePigs.html file to play.
Q. I just downloaded the pigs.zip file. What do I do now?
A. What do I look like, your personal help desk? I do have a couple of hints though:
