Pass the Pigs

 

Confessing your problems to friends and family can almost always be beneficial. Believe me, I’ve had some tough battles that I thought I couldn’t overcome up until the day I decided to get it all off my chest. I’ve never felt better plus I’m also closer to the one’s I love.

 

Back in 1998 I had a problem that no one thought they could help me with. I was in deep. My parents had given up. My grandmother wouldn’t answer my phone calls…hell, even my cousins refused to buy me presents for Christmas. I didn’t have any money at the time and I had a lousy roommate that never shut the door when he went #2. I guess you could say I had hit rock bottom. Looking back now, it almost seems funny how low I had sunk. Sure, I feel bad for the people I’ve hurt but I’ve grown since then. Mentally, physically, spiritually…all of the above. You see, I had an addiction to Animal Crackers. Sure, go ahead and laugh but it’s serious stuff. Did I eat’em all the time? Yeah, but that wasn’t my problem. My problem was, that each and every time I ate one, I would name what animal I was eating out loud. If it was a giraffe, I would say giraffe and then eat the cracker. If it was an elephant, I would say elephant  and then eat the cracker. People around me just couldn’t take it. I bought boxes by the pound from my local Sam’s Club. And thanks to the “convenient” strap that comes with each box, I had them with me wherever, whenever I wanted. It wasn’t until April 14, 1998 that I decided to turn my life around…and it’s been great ever since.

 

 

Big Money, Big Money!

Big Money, Big Money!

 

Pass the Pigs has recently seen a price cut to $2.99 from it’s original asking price. The game is not really that bad and certainly, like BurnC4rd mentioned in their review, it can make for a fun drinking game. How my friends play is even more simple than the previous player’s rules: what we do is roll the pigs and then pass the Touch around the room. Whoever gets Pig Out, takes a swig. Simple and fun for everyone. What has kept my attention with this game is the Pig’s life story mode. You’re given random questions that you’re either in it for the Love or the Money. I’ve played through a few times and I’ve seen a different ending each time. It’s basic but it certainly kept my attention. And like all the reviews in iTunes say, the physics of rolling the pigs could be better. I’d like to see a 3D rendition of the pigs made of plastic or glass also. That’d be sweet. For now, I still can’t say I’d recommend it for it’s asking price but at the same time, that’s not really that expensive. I’m stumped. I’m going to go see if we have any Animal Crackers in the pantry…
