I like to exchange my gaming pieces for some more realistic looking ones. And right now I'm searching for little pigs or piglets made of rubber or plastic. They should be about 1.5 to 2 cm (~3/4 inch) long, but all I have found so far are much too big, at about 4-6 cm. If pigs are out of question, I'd think about using other farm animals instead, but pigs would be best because of the colour. I know they exist, or at least existed, I owned one as a little child. I simly can't find any of them now.

So, if anyone out there has an idea where to find those, please tell me. I can't offer GG for lack of having any in my purse, but my thanks will be yours.

Oops, I forgot to add: I need about 50-60 of them. So buying full games is not the right way ... But thanks anyway, those are exactly the right size.

Hi,
I saw lots of little plastic pigs in Obletter (toy store) in Munich around NewYears. Pigs being a sign of "luck" in these parts and especially at New Years makes them abundant and poplular.

The Oriental Trading Company has mini resin pigs for USD4.95 / dozen.
I can't vouch for quality, but they sure do look cute!
(They also have lambs and bunnies...)



I have no interest in this company, just a satisfied customer...

The following "pig catapult" comes with 20 pigs that look like the right size for $5.99

Thank you so much, everyone. Pig Pile seems like a very good start. I didn't know there where actual games with that many pig miniatures. But then, there's a game for everything.
