Anyone play Chickapig?

Post by ImLawBoy » Mon May 06, 2019 12:15 pm

Looking for games for my son, and saw Chickapig. Anyone play this with kids and have any thoughts on it? Seems like a nice intro to gaming.

This is the first I've heard of it. Look promising -- I'm sure my kid would love the pooping cow.

Looks good actually.

And makes me a bit depressed because from a game mechanics standpoint, it's nearly identical to the game I designed.
Oh well.

There are plenty of games with similar mechanics that coexist on the market. If it's a good game, it can find a market.

Just FYI, in case you missed it, Dave Matthews (yes, THAT Dave Matthews) helped publish this game.

Well, we ended up getting it for him. Once we play it, I'll have to report back on it!

Every time I pass the Chickapig display at the Target where I work, I immediately start singing Chick, chick, chick...chick-a pig-a a la Ferris Bueller’s closing credits song.
