About Aberdeen Haggis Game
Use the mouse of your computer to move and raise or lower the hammer to give the haggis a whack. Aim to hit the angry bad looking haggis who are coloured red. Hit this haggis and he will sound a haggis noise.
Try and avoid hitting the friendly tartan bonnet clad haggis or he will give a wee squeak and take a point off your score.
Variations of this haggis game include splat the haggis and haggis hunting game.
There is a mute button on the left of the game if you really do not like the bagpipe music (are you mad!!). This does turn off the haggis sound effects through.
Disclaimer - No haggis were harmed in the making of this game and will be released back into the wild after the haggis whacking season - just in time for the
haggis hunting season!
We at About Aberdeen love haggis and ask you not to go out into the Scottish countryside wacking any friendly haggis. If you do go haggis hunting though you might find our haggis recipe at our other website at
