Pig is a dice game in which players try to get to 100 points first by adding together their dice and hoping not to roll a 1 in the meantime. Our pig drinking game adds some simple drinking rules which makes it a great game for parties or gatherings.
First we’ll outline how to play Pig for those who don’t know, and then add in our drinking rules.
What You’ll Need To Play
Pig requires a die (or multiple dice so each player can have their own) and a pen & paper to mark scores. For our drinking rules you’ll want a couple drinks for each round.
How To Play Pig
The objective of Pig is to reach 100 points before your opponents.
On a players turn they roll the die and mark down the score. They can then choose to keep rolling and adding each additional roll to their score, or stop and “bank” their score(ending their turn). However if they choose to continue rolling and they roll a 1, they lose their entire score and end their turn. So players need to decide if they want to go for more points, or play safely and keep what they already have. Once a score is banked, it can no longer be lost by rolling a 1.
Once a player reaches 100 points they end the game, and each other player gets one last turn to try and surpass them. The player with the most points at the end wins the game.
Pig Drinking Game Rules
- Whenever you roll a 1, take a sip
- At the end of your turn drink equal to what place you’re in (unless you’re first).
- At the end of the game drink once for each 5 points you are away from the winner.
- If you ever roll a 1 on your very first roll of a turn, take a shot or finish what’s left of your drink
