The game comes in a recycled paper egg crate housing nine full-sized rubber eggs, one full-sized wooden egg, an action die, and an egg placement die.
Players in turn roll the action die. The action die features pictographs of six actions:
* "Cluck, cluck, cluck"--the player who rolled can take an egg from the box after saying the key phrase.
* Egg Drop--a rubber egg is dropped and the person who snatches it after it bounces off the table gets to keep it.
* Run Around the Table--all the players run around the game table, the first one back to his/her spot takes an egg from the box.
* Die Grab--first player to grab the die after this action comes up gets to take an egg from the box.
* "Cock-a-Doodle-Doo"--the first player to fully crow out the key phrase gets to take an egg from the box.
* Mute--if this action comes up and a player mistakes its similar graphic for "Cock-a-Doodle-Doo" and says the key phrase, the player surrenders an egg or loses a turn.
After taking an egg, the player receiving it must roll the placement die to determine where that egg will be placed on the players body:
* Under the chin
* Side of the neck
* Under the arm
* In the crook of the arm
* Between the knees
* Anywhere the player chooses
Each rubber egg counts for a point, with the wooden egg (much harder to hold in place) counting for two. In the course of play, if a player drops a held egg, the round is over, the player who lost the egg is out, and the points are tallied. The player with the most points wins the round.Read more ›
Basically, you take turns rolling a die to collect eggs in various ways, which you then have to hold in various places on your body (elbows, knees, armpits, etc...) eventually someone will roll a picture of a person running around a table, so everyone gets up and runs around the table and the first one back to their seat gets another egg. The game is over when someone drops an egg, usually the result of frantically running around the table while avoiding people and chairs.
Super simple and insanely fun. We were laughing so hard, I couldn't hold onto an egg to save my life, I ordered my own copy straight away! But when it arrived, I quickly noticed it came in a box. I thought, "Oh, they must have put this carton in a box, seems a bit wasteful..." Nope. It was just an oddly shaped box with the eggs and dice rolling around inside. I was super disappointed. I guess I'll have to put it in my own egg carton and bring that to parties.
Other than that, it's an "egg-celent" game. I highly recommend it.
TYPE OF GAME:
I would call this something of a dexterity game. Players chase eggs and then do silly things to hold them.
As the picture shows, everything comes in an egg carton. There are nine rubber bouncy eggs, one yellow painted wooden egg and two large wooden dice.
All players stand around a table. The first player takes the red die and rolls it on the table. This will instruct the players to do an action. One side just instructs them to take an egg from the box. Another tells everyone to shout ”cock-a-doodle-doo!“ and whoever does so first gets an egg. Another looks like the shout side but has the beak closed, so anyone who goes ”cock-a-doodle-doo!“ loses an egg.
The other three sides are where the action is. One instructs players to grab for the die. Whoever gets it gets an egg from the box. One tells everyone to run around the table as fast as possible. Whoever gets back to their spot gets an egg. The last is where the name of the game is drawn from. The player drops a rubber egg onto the table and everyone tries to grab it. Whoever catches the egg gets it.
Regardless of how a player gets an egg, they now roll the white die. It will instruct the player where they have to hold the egg. They may need to hold it under their chin, in their armpit, crook of their arm or between their knees, for instance. This, as you can imagine, creates some hilarity as players with several eggs need to run around the table with one between their knees or grab at an egg or die with one under their chin and another in the crook of an arm.
The game ends when someone drops an egg.Read more ›

Perfect for young kids, but only plays well in a group of 2 or 3. Not enough eggs for a larger group.Published 8 months ago by Genny
Ridiculous amount of dexterity needed for playing (even as an adult), for very little payoff. The kids, 8 and 6, got frustrated and lost interest after 5 minutes.Published 9 months ago by Suzanne McSpadden
