Recommended Number of Players:

No equipment necessary

Set Up:
No prior set-up required

How to Play:
One player is the wolf and the others are Easter eggs. Before the game begins, the eggs decide what color they are going to be. Usually the older kids choose colors with longer names and leave the easier colors for the younger kids. The eggs then face the wolf, who begins to guess colors. If the wolf guesses a player's color, that player must step forward one step, spell the color, and then run a predetermined route before running back to the other players, called the "basket." If the egg makes it back to the basket, he chooses a new color, and play continues. If the wolf tags the egg before he gets back to the basket, that player becomes the wolf.
