Mushroom basket by Karl Ander Adami


The players will choose a spot with a slightly raised ground, a mound or a small hill, and will all go on top of it. Each player places a boiled egg on the verge, forming a neat line of eggs. When all the eggs are set, someone will say „HEE HOO HOP“. When the word „HOP“ has been uttered, each player will give his/her egg a small push, so that it will roll down the hillside. Whose egg rolls down the furthest is the winner and will take all the eggs. Of course, the game can be repeated as many times as agreed.

When the winner is clear, the players can decide together what is the best way to eat all the eggs.
