Orchard Toys: Pigs In Pants (Review & Giveaway)

We've been sent one of the new Orchard Toys games to review,  Pigs In Pants. It is one of those fabulous games that really appeals to children, mostly because they get to shout things like "I'm going to pinch your pants!" or "I'm going to nick your knickers!"

Pigs In Pants 1

Using a similar set up to 'Where's My Cupcake?', players have a board each in the shape of a cute pig who looks rather abashed at having no pants on, and the object of the game is to collect the most pants on your pig board by matching them in your hand with the other cards in play.

Orchard Toys: Pigs In Pants

  • Each player (2-4 players) starts with a pig board and they are then dealt two of the cards each, which they hold in their hands and can see.
  • Four pant cards are placed face up in a line in the centre and the remaining cards are placed face down in a pile next to them.
  • The youngest player starts by checking to see if they can match a card in their hand to one of four in the line. If they can, or if it matches one on another player's board, they collect those cards and place them on their pig board along with the matching pants card from their hand. (When collecting from another player though, the whole pile is taken from the pig board and the 'taker' must shout, "I'm going to pinch your pants!")
  • If the cards in their hand don't match any in play, then they shout, "No knickers!" and place that card in the line-up of four.

  • At the end of their turn, players must make their hand back up to two cards each time by taking from the face-down pile.
  • The game ends when no-one is able to match any further cards, and the winner is the person with the most pants on their pig board.

The Boy absolutely loved this game, I'm sure it was the element of playing with pants and shouting about knickers which made him chuckle the most, but it is a really fun game to play with the lead position switching between players right until the very end! It's also an excellent game for promoting observational and matching skills, as identified in Orchard Toys Educational Guide, along with strategic thinking.

Pigs In Pants is available to buy from all good toy shops and directly from Orchard Toys online, with a RRP of £7.50.

    This week I have done a fair few things I'm pleased with – including moving house and still managing the school run without doing it in a coat and PJs.

    Most of all I have supported my eldest's schooling and made time every single day to cuddle and read books together. It would be so easy to skip that when we're so busy and tired but it is the highlight of our days.

    I have had a huge clearout ready for Christmas!!! I took bag loads of old toys and clothes to our local charity shop! I feel really good now!

    Great review, as ever, MrsBoyandMe! I spent all night and early hours in A&E waiting to have my ankle x-rayed. Result: it's fractured, six weeks in plaster and crutches. How will I cope, I wonder? Tee hee hee, I said I like challenges, didn't I?

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      Oh no lovely lady! How the hell did you do that?! Time for you to get the blogging bug back again and tell us all what you've been doing this Summer, something to pass the day away!

    We started a Baby Group at work – we have a great Toddler Group but this is just for babies with special activities and more safe space for them to lie down and kick, crawl etc! It went really well and we did some lovely footprint pictures. I love babies!!!!

    I finally got back 3 hours a day now my daughter had started nursery, its the first time in almost 6 years that I have been home alone in the house, I used the time to crack on with my Open University course – instead of running around naked, dancing to 80s classics.. :cough:

  7. Hilda Hazel Wright says

    The best thing I've done this week is sell something I've been trying to sell for a while, and its paid for something new that I've wanted for a while!

  8. Tracy Newton says

    I have spent the week revamping a rental property. I am proud to say that I did a big chunk of the work myself (except the electrics for obvious reasons). Not only have I learnt some new skills, I have saved loads of money, and lost a few pounds in weight because I walked the mile there and back each day.

    I am having a day off today, but will go back to it next week. 🙂

  11. Alison Wright says

    Best thing this week? Me and my big girl (17!) sneaked to Alton Towers on our own yesterday for some 1:1 time (and to go on all the fast rides while the much-too-little baby girl wasn't there!)

  15. Amy Jane says

  16. Rob Scott says

    Built station buildings, platforms and signal boxes from cereal packets for me and my sons model railway..They look great and cost nothing.
