Egg, Chicken, Dinosaur


The goal of this game is to work your way up by beating other players at Rock-Scissors-Paper to the “position” of king or queen.

Everyone starts out as an egg. You find another egg and play Rock-Scissors-Paper. The winner “grows” into a chicken who finds another chicken to play against. Whoever wins “grows” into a dinosaur. The loser returns to being an egg.

Once a dinosaur you must find another dinosaur to play against. If you lose, you step down to a chicken. The next step is becoming a prince or princess, which of course means playing against another prince or princess. If you win you become a King or Queen and stand off to the side. If you lose you return to a dinosaur. The game is played until there is one egg, chicken, dinosaur and prince. All other players will be kings or queens.

The fun in all this?: Eggs waddle on the ground in a little ball, chickens walk and squat while flapping their wings and “clicking”, dinosaurs “roar” standing up. Princes/princesses “prance” around holding an imaginary scepter while kings and queens stand off to the side victoriously.

    Game was hilarious. When the leaders played and got into their characters the kids were awesome. Best egg acting I've ever seen.
