Egg curling

What do we need ?

6 eggs (3 for each player), sticky tape to outline the home base (the “target” to which the eggs are rolled).

The game

You can blow out the eggs first if you like. Though playing with full eggs makes the game a lot more exciting (will they break?), it is more likely that you will have to clean up quite a mess afterwards. If you want to blow the eggs out before you get started, find out how to do it here.

However, before we can get started, we’ve still got to make the home base. Start by taping 3 squares to the ground with the sticky tape. It is important to make squares of different sizes and stick them around each other (see the photo). Don't make it too hard for yourself and start with the smallest.

Once that's done, you can start playing. It goes without saying that the objective of the game is to score as many points as possible. You can do this by rolling your egg onto one of the squares. But watch out! Each square has a different point value.

Player 1 takes the first turn to roll his or her egg home. When the egg comes to a standstill, player 2 takes a turn. Take turns until there are no more eggs left to roll. It’s time to tally the score. What's important is that the egg is completely inside the square. If it is touching one of the sides of the square, count the points in the biggest circle.

Who scored the most points?

You can do this several times, and whoever scores the most points after several rounds is the grand champion.

Extra rule of play: players are allowed to knock their opponent's egg out of the home base.
