How to play: First, choose a challenge and set up the piggies as shown . Next you will have to arrange the house pieces so that they fit inside the board, around the piggies. Another way to play is to arrange the houses so that the piggies are “playing inside the houses”.Meaning you have to position the houses so that they cover the piggies. Take a look at an example below.

Here we set up the game as shown in the booklet. Now the idea is to cover the board with the 3 houses without moving the piggies.
