"What do you get when you combine dice throwing with America's most diversely edible barnyard animal? Why, Pass the Pigs of course, a game where you roll pigs for points. Instead of traditional cubical dice, the player throws two pig shaped die. The unique shapes of the pigs offer a neat twist on the dice tossing games of old. For example, if two pigs land on their side and are facing the same direction (referred to as a sider), you get a point. But if both pigs are in a rarer pose such as leaning on their snouts, you get twenty points per snouter. "
