Pass the Pigs is a simple party game.

What are the odds of the various positions?  I threw the pair of pigs a  442 times (2 x 221)  on a clean, flat piece of granite at 68 deg F, and got the following results:

bulletSide (pink = no dot) = 35.2%  (156)
bulletSide (with black dot) = 29.1% (129)
bulletStanding (Trotter) = 7.7% (34)
bulletBack (razorback) = 24.6% (109)
bulletNose (snouter) = 2.2% (10)
bulletEar/nose (leaning jowler) = 0.6% (3)
bulletBack/ear = 0.2% (1)

The final position "Back/ear" is very rare,  but can be thrown on my set.  It is almost the back (razorback) position, but slightly tilted to the side (so the black dot is upwards a bit).   It is not mentioned in the game rules, and on my pigs it has a probability of about 1/3%.    Even site A below which had 1,688 throws did not mention this position.  I can only get it with one of my two pigs:  even using my fingers to position the pig.  Apparently one of my pigs is a special pig that can achieve this mystical back-ear position.  Like a super yoga master.

How do my results compare with other results posted on the internet?

  Me Site A Site B Site C
Side (no dot) 35.2 36 34.1 34.1
Side (dot) 29.1 27 32.0 33.0
Trotter 7.7 7 9.2 8.7
Razorback 24.6 24 19.5 19.0
Snouter 2.2 2 3.5 3.5
Leaning Jowler 0.6 1 0.8 0.8
Tail 0.2 -- -- --
