Russian Egg Roulette

Russian egg roulette Easter special.... #nofuchsgiven

How does the game work? There are three hard boiled eggs and three raw eggs, all held in the same container, though no one knows which eggs are raw and which eggs are hard boiled.  The first person to smash two eggs on the other person’s head wins (the raw eggs will break on the head, the hard boiled eggs will not), with a quick game of rock-papers-scissors deciding who gets to go first.

Vardy wins the right to go first, with a strong play of rock over scissor, and promptly takes advantage, grabbing one of the raw eggs and smashing it on Fuchs' head. But, not to be outdone, Fuchs immediately returns the favor leaving us tied at 1-1.

It would seem the chances of grabbing all three raw eggs first would be astronomical (or, really, about 5%) but that is exactly what happens as Vardy slams home the third egg for the 2-1 victory with his next selection.

Who would invent such a diabolical game? We’re certain we don’t know, but, really, we all win here and we all also have a new favorite Easter tradition, and something to do with all those left over eggs from Easter Egg hunts!
