Advantages: Quick, simple, high laugh factor.
Disadvantages: Pales after a few rounds.
This is a very similar game to Cosmic Wimpout and other dice games. Even if you don't use dice. The main component is a pair of plastic pigs, about 2 cm's long. Each pig has a dot on one side of it.
Play is very simple. Throw the pigs. See how the pigs land, and score points. More points are socred for more unlikely landing positions (a leaning jowler for example is where the pig lands on his cheek and one leg, balancing precariuously). You can continue this for as long as you desire. You get more points for both pigs doing th same trick.
However, if ever the two pigs land on their sides with both the same side showing (both spot or both no spot), you lose all your point for that turn and 'pass the pigs'. if ever both pigs touch, your makin' bacon and lose all your points scored so far. So you've gotta decide when to stop throwing those porkers and banking your score.
Play lasts to as many points as you decide (100 for a short game, 100,000 for sheer terminal boredom on a long train ride).
The game comes in a very nice carry case abut the size of glasses case, complete with score chart, paper and pencil to score with and those all impoartant plastic procines.
