Die drei kleinen Schweinchen

Straw, wood, stone and a wolf


As a little pig, you build houses by rolling dice. Five dice show symbols for doors, windows and roofs; three dice also show a wolf symbol. Nine stacks for doors, windows and roofs, made from straw, wood and stone, are on display.

As active player, you roll all five dice and can re-roll twice; after your third roll at the latest you use the result to build: For two identical symbols - door, roof or window - you take such a part made of straw; for three symbols, you can choose between a straw or a wooden part and for four symbols you can choose straw, wood or stone. Building rules are: You can begin several houses at the same time - a house begins with a door or a window - a roof is placed on top of windows or door - a house can have any number of windows but only one door and one roof - you can place a door under a window - a house with roof is complete, even if it has no door, you cannot add another part to the house - a house can be constructed using parts of varied materials.

If you, however, have rolled two or more wolf symbols, you end the rolling, spin the wheel and remove corresponding parts from the house of another player of your choice. When three to five stacks of parts are empty, you add piglet heads in your houses with a roof; flower pots and completed houses also give you a bonus of one points.

In a variant, you use reward cards; you only score points for finished houses as in the core game and only the bonuses of reward cards that you earn during the game and at the end.

This is a pretty and well-working implementation of the fairy tale, which is also a lovely family game when you use the reward card version.
