Pass the Pigs

Pass the Pigs is one of the fun math and dice games for kids, and memory games.

No farm animals are involved, but this is still fun to play with your friends.

Don't get greedy and hog the dice, or you may just wipe out all your points!

Before You Start

2 or more players
Ages: 8 and up
Need 1 die


Begin with each player rolling the die. The lowest number begins. If a tie, players roll again.

Pick a score, 100 is good, and the player who reaches 100 first is the winner.

Kids should have pretty good math skills and be able to add (and remember) his score in his head.

If kids don't seem to be able to do that, paper and pencil can be used.

The first player goes and rolls the die as often as he wants. After each roll, he adds the number and keeps a total.

When he's done rolling, the next player goes.

However, if the player rolls a 1, his turn is over and his score goes back to 0.

Suggestions and Ideas

Knowing when to stop and not being greedy is important in this!

Each player can try and roll until his total adds up to more than the previous player's total.

But there's always the chance of rolling a 1 and going back to 0!

It's up to each player how much risk he or she wants to take.

And . . .

The first player to reach 100 points wins.

If you don't have a long time to play, you can play up to 50 or 75 points.

For a more challenging activity, you can also up the total points needed to win to 150 or 200.

Or, once you reach the 100 points, reverse and play until someone reaches 0.
