(Ad - Gifted) Giant Pass the Pigs game, fantastic for fun in the garden!

The weather was lovely until the middle of last week and we had been spending a lot of time out in the garden. The girls have a few games to keep them amused but they were becoming bored of them so when we were asked if we would like to try out a game from Winning Moves we jumped at the chance. 

Pass the Pigs is Amazon's number one travel game and has sold millions of games across the world and now it has been super sized!

Perfect for parties, these giant inflatable pigs can bounce around the garden, house, beach or even the pool. It’s Pass The Pigs like you’ve never passed them before! Inflate your pair of porkers, throw them and see how they land. Will you get a Leaning Jowler, a Mixed Combo or will you Pig Out?

Included in the box is two inflatable pigs, a rule book, scorecards, a pencil, carry bag and vinyl plastic repair seal. The pigs are a good size and the plastic seems quite thick. I don't think they will get a puncture any time soon.

We blew the pigs up and we were ready to play! The game is for two or more players and is so simple to play. You throw the pigs up in the air and how they fall determines the points you get. For example if they both land on the same side you get one point but if they both land on their noses you get 60 points. There is different combinations between too. There is ways to score no points, lose point and if the pigs land on top of each other you're out of the game.

The aim of the game is to score as many points as you can in one turn. You can play it safe and end your turn to keep the points or throw again and risk them. The first player to 100 wins.

As the weather has been rubbish we had to make do with playing giant Pass the Pigs inside It was still a lot of fun but we were limited on space and we couldn't throw the pigs as high as we would have liked. 

My girls are so competitive so it was the perfect game for them. They took great pleasure in debating how the pigs landed and when Ellie was keeping score it gave her chance to practice her maths skills.

We are big fans of the Giant Pass the Pigs game and I can see it getting plenty of use, not just over the summer in the garden but in the house too. The manufacturer recommended age is 6 years old but I think children which are younger can play as long as they understand the game.

Giant Pass the Pigs is available to buy off the Amazon website for around £14.99 and I think it is well worth that price.

We were sent the Giant Pass the Pigs game free of change in exchange for this blog post.


  1. This looks like a really fun game! It will be great when the weather picks up and you can play outside too. x

  2. We have this, but haven't has
    d a chance to play it yet as the weather near us has been awful. Hoping it improves tomorrow. It is such a good game that I fondly remember from my younger years!
