My wife has an unhealthy obsession with pigs, so I was wondering if there are any good and fun board games with a pig theme or pigs in the game.

Snorta is farmyard related as well, and there is a pig in it...

Truffle Scuffle is an abstract pig-themed game.

Agricola is a highly-rated game about farming. It includes pigs, cows and horses to add to your farm.

Pig Tickler is all about jousting a mechanical pig while riding a unicycle.

Yes. You did just read that.

Cheers,

Giles.

Unpublished Prototype soon to be released.

 

 


The prototype had 40 pigs from galloping pigs in it: 5 colors.

Galloping Pigs is actually a fun filler. It's rather random, but it has a bit of bluffing and push-your-luck to make it a bit more interesting.

I like to play it as a session opening/closing, and I don't even have an unhealthy obsession with pigs!

Pig Pile is certainly worth mentioning because of large number of plastic pigs that come with the game!

I recall Pig Pong from my childhood.

For a more serious game, she may enjoy farming pigs (actually black boars) in Agricola--for the US version, you will want to have the Goodies Expansion to replace the default cubes with pig meeples.

Elfenland has pigs you can ride on!

And you can raise pigs in Agricola, as others have pointed out.

Oh, and you can be a pig in Willis wilde Wühlerei:

I did a search for games with "pig" in the title. The title that caught my eye was the intriguing "Pig Pong". It is rated surprisingly not-low, given the kind of game that it is.

You could take a look at the Animals: Pigs family, and order the games by rank. Highest ranking game seems to be The Piggyback Brigade.

Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions. I have a lot of games to check out. My wife just recently picked up Pass the Pigs, however, we haven't played it yet. And my stepmother picked up Snorta for my nieces and nephews and told us about how fun and silly it was.
Are these other pig games any good or just disasters in a box? Obviously I've heard Aricola is a good game I was just wondering about the sillier sounding ones.
