Farmer Card: Super Feed

Sometimes a farmer finds that just using regular isn't going to cut it with all those other rival farmers about. That's when you need the specially formulated feed we developed in-house known as super feed. With super feed you will never have to worry about your pig ever moving from their spot. Just make sure you complete that pen before the end of the night.

Game Tip: Super feed is a great way to ensure points and should be paired with higher point value pigs.

Pig Reveal: Peggy Pig

Peggy Pig loves her looks and especially the lipstick. I hear she has a fondness for Sock Hops.

Designer Notes
One of the elements of the game I never really wanted to let go of was the Secret Bacon Pack. The Secret Bacon Pack was a set of cards that allowed the player to put the pigs in serious harm.

When I originally designed the game, my thoughts for attacks were very different. When I thought of what would attack a wooden fence, my first thought for an attack was a chainsaw and for a brick wall I thought of TNT. And pigs running away was the afterthought, they were to be bacon in my initial version. When I went with a more family-friendly approach the attacks were replaced with saws and hammers. But I didn't quite get rid of the idea of chainsaws and TNT and making bacon of the pigs, as they morphed into a pack included with the game called the Secret Bacon Pack.

The Secret Bacon Pack does not exist in the present form of the game.
