The town-wide egg hunt is on!
You’ve got time to make 6 stops to find and collect as many eggs as you can. Load up an armful of eggs to bring back to the safety of your egg pile.
Think you can grab a few more? Go for it! But don’t get too greedy, or you might drop everything you’re holding.
Egg Roll! is a push-your-luck dice game for 2–6 players. Fun for both kids and adults!
How to Play
Whoever has the most eggs in their egg pile at end of 6 rounds wins! Each player takes 1 turn per round.
Hunting for Eggs
On your turn, you’ll roll the 5 green dice. Each is different, with sides ranging from 0 eggs to 3 eggs. Roll and re-roll until you get at least 1 egg. Count up the eggs on your dice. These found eggs are your armful.
You now have a choice. You can either:
- Stop here and score these eggs. Move your eggs to the safety of your egg pile, ending your turn.
- Or push your luck. Roll all dice again. If you roll more eggs, add them to your armful and make this choice again. Roll no eggs and you bust, dropping everything in your armful. Your turn ends and you score nothing.
Using Your Basket
Your basket can save you from busts! Before re-rolling, you can move your current armful of eggs into your basket. These eggs are now are safe. If you bust later this turn, you’ll still score the eggs in your basket.
But they don’t make’em like they used to. Baskets are one-time-use, and you can’t add more eggs to them once they’re set.
Switch It Up With Variants
Want a little more than the base game? No problem! This game comes with 6 variants that you can add 1 at a time, all at once, or as many as you’d like:
The Race to 40
Play to 40 eggs instead of 6 rounds. All players then get 1 final turn to try and stage the ultimate comeback.
The Short Game
Play fewer rounds or up to fewer eggs for a faster experience. Great for games with high player counts.
The Great Egg-Off
A simple way to break ties if multiple players finish the game with the same size egg piles.
The Backup Basket
On any turn after you’ve used your basket, if your first roll comes up with no eggs, you get your basket back.
The Risky Business
Add in a 6th die that can double the eggs you find, but can also cancel them out.
Only drop half your eggs instead of all of them when you bust. Great for young players.
Each has a variant card to put on the table so everyone knows the variants in play. These cards also remind players of how each one works.
Fun For All Ages
Egg Roll! is simple enough for kids to pick up, but its variants make it a fun, interesting game for grown-ups too. There’s strategy in every turn, and everyone always has a chance for an amazing come-from-behind win on their last roll.
