Description Edit | History

Pig Pile is an extremely light card (and punny) game. The cards have illustrations of pigs (naturally), and you can be "hog tied" or have a "hog wash".

Players start with three face-down cards (called "Slop") and a hand of six cards. At the start you place three of your cards face-up on top of the slop cards, leaving you with a hand of three cards. Each turn you must play to the central "Pig Pile" one or more cards of the same value that are equal to or greater than the top card of the Pig Pile. If you fail to do so, you must take the entire Pig Pile into your hand. Certain cards have special effects:

  • Hog Wild: Wild card that can be played at any time and allows any card to played on it next turn.
  • Hog Tied (4s): The next player loses his turn.
  • Hog Wash (8s): Remove the Pig Pile from the game and take another turn. (If three cards of the same value are played in succession, a Hog Wash takes place automatically.)
  • Ewe Turn (11s): Reverse order of play.

Each turn you draw back to three cards until the deck runs out. If you have no cards in hand (which can happen only after the deck runs out), you must play a face-up card (a card that you laid aside at start) or if those are gone, a slop card. (Slop cards are played blind, so you could be really screwed.) If you're the first or second player to rid yourself of cards (including your slop), you receive a number of pigs. Whoever has the most pigs after five hands wins.
