The Story Behind Chickapig
Chickapig was invented by Brian Calhoun, a custom guitar builder from Charlottesville, VA. After Brian invented the game, he teamed up with his friend, musician Dave Matthews, to develop Chickapig and bring it from farm to table. Chickapig is not only popular on family game nights, but due to its social and critical thinking elements, it is often a featured entertainment at music festivals, bars, and everywhere else you can possibly think of.
“Chickapig is better for kids than chess because it introduces chess-like thinking, but in a fun light-hearted way” - Judah Brownstein, former 12th grade National Chess Champion
"The future looks bright for this farm-to-table age-versatile game. That is, until you slip in the poop and have to pick up a poop card" -Entertainment Weekly
“I think that it proves to be quite a social game, which is why a lot of kids have gotten into it and I think it’s for that reason. There’s an element of playground involved as well, which also is good if you’re drinking beer. So that works for any age group — the social quality of it,” - Dave Matthews
"I love Chickapig! It’s engaging, interactive, and has great replay value. Chickapig is mighty, mighty fun!" -Pete Fenlon, CEO Catan Studio
