We saved the best for last, our farming research team thought the best way to fend off rivals from getting pigs would be your ordinary family… vacuum. It may sound weird but this vacuum can do the impossible, take away feed from a neighbor’s farm with little effort. How could you go wrong with weapon in your arsenal?

Game Tip: Best to use on Super Feed or Slop Tray feed cards.

Pig Reveal: Larry Pigglesworth 2nd

He loves to think, he’s Larry the smartest pig of them all. He seems to mutter “42” all the time, but don’t worry about him… too much.

Designer Notes
If I could impart one piece of advice to aspiring designers is this: Surround yourself with the right people. While your local gaming group is a great way to get to know your consumer, getting to know other designers in your area is a key to getting to the next step in game design. I was fortunate to have an outlet in IGDA to meet other designers, but also John Moller’s Unpub served a key outlet to getting my games in front of strangers who got me valuable feedback. There are other designers out there who love to help out and you need to be willing to put your foot out there if you truly want to succeed in game design.
