Little Pig has gone through some more rounds of playtesting and I am starting to get a better idea of how the Friends should work and how to make 4 players run as smoothly as 3. The Friends were a big hit overall with a very positive response to other fairy tale characters being included in the Pigs story. Some of the friends ended up being redundant, while others were too weak or too powerful. Also the mechanic of when you draw them and what happens when they are discarded need to be tweaked. The This Little Pig Stays Home card – that was added to the gather cards to make four players functional works but not perfectly and messes with the guess cards. On whole it seems that with four players there is too much information to be able to really keep an eye on your neighbor pigs. I am confident that a 2-4 player game can be made but with the Gather mechanic as the crux of the game right now it is proving a tricky nut to crack.
