For the farmer who wants to get the most out of their pens, may we offer up this space saving card. The slop tray offers a farmer the ability to contain two pigs in the confines of a pen that normally could only hold one. This top of the line innovation is the best of the bunch when it comes to pig happiness and sure to be a hit in your pen.

Game Tip: Slop trays are one of the most valuable cards in the game, use them wisely.

Pig Reveal: Josephina Pig

Always self conscious of her height, but a delightful pig. She brings class to any pen she goes to.

Designer Notes
As games change, you find that things that once worked don't work anymore.
One of those changes was the points spread on the pigs. The point spread on the pigs seemed to be okay, but as the deck was changed and thinned the point spread changed. Instead of being valued from 1 to 5, the point spread was tightened to 1 to 3 to help keep the point spread smaller. It overall helped the flow of the game and introduced some light tension to the game.
