PIG is a fun dice game: A battle of wits, math, and chance. Competitors roll the die and choose whether to ‘bank’ their score or to roll again for a chance to bank the total of all rolls. However, if a player rolls a 1, they lose their turn and their points! The game has two target options 50 and 100, depending on how long players want the game to last. PIG is a great way to exercise your arithmetic skills while having a lot of fun. Launch Game ?
Pig was was first recorded by the American magician John Scarne in the 1940s. It can help players develop skills in arithmetic and strategy. Teacher Peter Kane from Kilglass NS in Galway recommends it as an novel way to get pupils doing maths. He suggests playing the game with the whole class during Maths Week as a Maths Week activity. Afterwards, teachers can download and print Pig certificates from our website for participating students. After reviewing the rules below, students should be ready to roll!
