Game description

Did you ever try to put 2 eggs or balls on top of each other, without the top egg falling down? Without manipulating the situation that is certainly impossible. What you do need to “help” the eggs to stay on top of each other is a bit of salt or sugar. A bit of spit and patience will do the rest for the eggs to stand on top of each other.


Instead of salt or sugar, you could also use play dough. This way you can even put more eggs on top of each other.


Which team is the fastest to solve this task? The best wins. Alternatively, the winner is who can stack the most eggs/balls within 1-2 minutes.
