What It Is
In Pop! the Pig, players must feed the pig hamburgers without causing the pig's belly to burst. The centerpiece of the game is an 8.5-inch pig figure dressed as a chef. Players take turns rolling the die. If the die shows a colored burger, the player picks a burger in that color. If the die shows all four colors, the player picks a burger of any color. On the bottom of each burger there is a number from one to four. This is the number of times the pig has to "chew" the hamburger. Insert the hamburger into the pig's mouth and push on its head to "chew" the hamburger as many times as indicated on the burger. By pushing the pig's head, its belly begins to grow. A round ends when the pig has eaten too much and his belt bursts open. The player who caused the pig to "explode" is out of the game. Turn the pig's tail to the left to deflate the pig's belly so that the next round can begin for the other players until one player is left. That player is the winner.
Pop! the Pig comes with one pig, four purple hamburgers, four red hamburgers, four yellow hamburgers, four green hamburgers, a die, and instructions. The game is for two to six players.
Why It’s Fun
This is a very silly game that really appeals to a kid's sense of humor. Kids will like making the pig "eat" the hamburgers and watching as the pig's belly slowly expands.
Who It’s For
Pop! the Pig is for ages 4 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Once the pig has popped, stop pushing the head and follow the instructions about how to prepare a new game.
The pig's belly is a balloon. Be careful not to squeeze the belly and pop the balloon or let children put this or any other balloon in their mouths.
