Steal the Egg

Summary: Steal the Egg is just like the game steal the bacon, but best played near Easter time

Ages: From 6 to Adult

Recommended Number of Players:
Two teams of 5 to 10 players works best with another person being the referee.

One plastic Easter egg

Set Up:
No prior set-up required

How to Play:
Team members are numbered, so that each team has a number one, number two, etc. The teams line up opposite each other about 10 to 12 feet apart. A plastic Easter egg is placed in the middle. The referee calls out a number, and the two players with that number approach the middle of the field. The object is to pick up the egg and get back to your line without being tagged by the other player. If a player succeeds in doing so, his or her team gets a point. If the player is tagged, the other team gets a point. A player can be tagged only after picking up the egg, so strategy is important. Is it best to go for the egg, or wait for the other person to pick it up?

The first team to accumulate 10 points wins the game.
