Can you win and pick the boogers? Can you avoid the goo?
It will come as no surprise I am sure that the boys love anything which is on the ‘gross’ side. They find anything like that completely and utterly hilarious!
A few weeks ago, I was thrilled to be contacted to review some new children’s games. It didn’t take long for the boys to pick out their favourite, Piggin’ Boogers from Megableu

How to play Piggin’ Boogers
The boys were really excited when the game arrived and one rainy Saturday morning we gathered round to play that game.
The idea is that there are three piglets. Before the game commences, one piglet is filled with..well.. piggin’ boogers (green goo). You mix the piglets up and the players have to gamble on which piglet has the hidden goo.
You get little tokens to place in front of your piglet of choice. Then you have to take it in turns to stick your finger into the piglets nose to see if you have won. The person who finds the goo wins all the tokens.
You play the round five times and the person with the most tokens, or piggin boogers, wins!
Simple, effective and fun.
I have to admit when I found out you needed goo, and I saw the little packet that we had received along with the game, I thought “this wont last long”. However I should not have worried, the goo is actually reusable.
For some reason, I also thought the goo would be really thin. There was a moment of panic as I didn’t want it to stick to the carpet. However again we didn’t need to worry. The goo was a really thick consistency and stuck together well.
The game was really good fun and we have played it a few times now. It is an ideal family game for little ones obsessed with anything on the gross side, i.e. two little monkeys!
The boys were a little unsure at first, I think they didn’t entirely know what to expect. It didn’t take long though and they were soon giggling and shrieking with laughter.
I loved to hear the shrieks of laughter coming from the boys as they braved the pigs snout to find out if they were the winner. They both very much wanted to be the one to find the boogers!
A really great and fun family game, I would highly recommend it.
