Pig Stackin', Wolf Dodgin' Play!

Race those piggies! You've got to get all three of your piggies to the fresh food across the board. Roll the die to make your move. You can even land on top of another piggy and catch a piggy-back ride! When they roll and move, they have to move your piggy with theirs, taking you even closer to the food!

Watch Out for the Wolf
One of the faces of the die says "Tractor/2." If you roll that, you can either move two spaces, or take control of the wolf and launch a hay bale from his tractor at an opponent. If that hay bale knocks a piggy off its square, that piggy goes back to the closest mud pit, slowing his journey to the food.

Checkpoints and Winning
The board has two checkpoints, so if your piggy is past a checkpoint and gets hit with a hay bale, the piggy doesn't have to go all the way back to the beginning mud pit - just back to the checkpoint mud pit. The first player to get all three piggies to the fresh food wins!

What's in the Box?
Go Piggy Go! game comes with the gameboard and 12 piggies (3 for each player, up to 4 players), game die, and the wolf in his tractor launcher and 3 hay bales projectiles.

    •  Exciting strategy game - race your piggies across the board, avoiding the wolf and his tractor
    •  Stack on top of another piggy to get a free piggy-back ride
    •  Roll the tractor, and you can launch hay bales to knock other piggies off their spaces
    •  Be the first to get all your piggies to the food to win!
    •  Includes board and piggies, die, wolf tractor launcher and hay bale projectiles

We been looking for some new games for the kids at the warehouse was having a closing down sale so thought a new game would be great. Now this looked like fun, pigs, a wolf with flying hay and a race to the end, seems fun right?

So we got the game and as soon as we got home they wanted to play, okay then so opened it up gave a quick read of the rules got the idea and off we went. Great game to be honest, you have 3 piggies you need to get to the food at the end without getting hit by the wolf. On the dice is numbers and you can move any amount UP to what you rolled on the dice so if you rolled 3 you can move UP to 3 or the whole amount. You can land on another persons space and piggy back your way to the end just watch out that someone doesnt roll wolf and knock you off the board or off the piggy your piggy backing with.

There are 2 safe areas as the board is split into 3 colours, this is great for the little ones who are near the end and get knocked off, they can go to the safe spot according to the colour of the board they were in and not all the way back to the start.. The kids got the understanding of the rules pretty fast, sadly in a week they lost one of the three hay stacks. Lucky the game only really needs one hay to work.
