Dancing Eggs on Christmas Eve

Our family spent Christmas Eve with our 'other' family.  Our best friends - the Feltenbergers.
One of the gifts we gave to our friends was 'Dancing Eggs'.

I found this video that quickly explains the game.

There are two dice - one red, one white.
Roll the red die to see what you have to do to get an egg.
Roll the white die to see where you place the egg on your body.
Do NOT drop an egg!
The person with the most eggs, wins!

The family in the video were a lot nicer than the participants in our game.

It was all out war when everyone was trying to grab the bouncing egg….The big guys were pushing the little ladies out of the way while running around the table….. The boys were giving full body checks into the walls…..  One glass of tea was spilled, one wine glass was shattered….

  9. If you saw a carton of eggs in a game store, one would not think it would be a game, let alone a fun game.
    To our surprise it was A LOT of fun!

  10. We found it in a game store called "Marbles". I've never seen it in a store like Target or Walmart.

  11. It's very competitive, but in a good way. You may have to order it online.

  12. The family in the video sat around the table. We found it was better to stand. Easier to run without tripping over the chairs. And boy, did we laugh!!

  20. Well, here I am leaving a comment. For ONE FLEETING SECOND I had a Disqus form, but I couldn't type in it 'cause it was still loading. So, I clicked it to STOP loading and reloaded it and a google form came up. So, I shut down your blog and then reclicked over here - - - still google.

    No word very though.

    I want you to come to MY house to play dancing eggs.
