Egg Tapping Game
This traditional Easter game dates back as far as 14th century Europe. Today the game is played all over the world with a world championship held in England on Easter Sunday. Many families incorporate the game into their Easter Sunday meal with the winner getting a small prize or even the honor of saying the meals grace.
The Egg Tapping game is fairly simple. Each opponent starts out with an un-cracked, usually dyed, hard boiled egg. One person holds there egg with the pointed end up and the other person knocks it with their eggs pointed end with the intention of cracking the opponent’s egg. The opponents then switch places and repeat with the rounded ends of their eggs. If an opponent has an end that is not cracked they then find another competitor who has a matching end to play against. This is repeated until there is one person left with at least one end of their egg un-cracked and is declared the winner!
