SDG Implementation

  • SDG implements the Continuous Feedback variant only!
  • The repair command (as described in the original rules) doesn't exist on SDG.
  • In games under the "repairs" variant, five x commands repair a single point of damage. The repairs don't have to be made on consecutive rounds.
  • Without "repairs", damage is permanent.
  • x will allow you to pass a turn if you so desire (but you might as well fire or hit instead of pass, unless you're using x for repairs).
  • The TL and TR commands have been truncated to a simple L and R, so all commands are a single symbol.
  • Your first move is a string of three commands. Subsequent moves are submitted one command at a time. Click the "View All Moves" link above the move submission box to see and select from a complete list of possible moves.

Ideas for variants

  • Sleeping Piggy: A "hard-time" variant where instead of a player forfeiting the game altogether for running out of time, their pig simply rests for that round. (This would be especially useful in games with many players so that one player's tardiness doesn't hold up the action!)
  • Piggy Herds. more then one piggy per person.
  • Unique Boards and Terrain.
  • Piggy poop bombs.
  • Charge — the next attack will deal additional damage if successful.
