This year in lieu of seeing my family and doing the normal holiday traditions, I had a different journey. It was exciting in its own ways, but that's neither here nor there. One of the most fun things we did this Easter was the first annual Hunger Games Easter Egg Hunt. Let me explain the rules, oh and may the odds be ever in your favor.
I began by hiding three kinds of eggs: normal decorated hard boiled eggs, plastic eggs filled with candy, and confetti eggs. For those of you who don't know what confetti eggs are let me tell you how it goes: take an egg, break the top or bottom, empty contents, fill with confetti, cover opening, get frustrated, throw them away, go to Wal*Mart, buy confetti eggs for $3/dozen, then finally come home and use those.
Once all of the eggs have been hidden you must gather your tributes. The age of our tributes ranged from 18-29 (though the ages of your tributes may vary). First we had to explain the rules.
-The winner of The Hunger Game Easter Egg Hunt will be rewarded with a prize (not just his or her own life).
-The tributes can only begin looking for eggs after the countdown from the Game Makers.
-If a tribute finds a confetti egg, then said tribute must immediately desist from looking for eggs, but rather the tribute must immediately find the tribute nearest him or her and smash the confetti egg over the rival tribute's head--thus confetti-ing him.
-When a tribute has been confetti-ed, he or she is frozen from acting for 10 seconds. At this time a maximum of two hard boiled eggs may be stolen from his or her basket.
-Alliances are permitted, but only one tribute can win.
-The hunt is only over when the Game Maker has declared all of the eggs found.
-Eggs will then be counted and a winner declared.
I have to say this was super fun. Y'all should try it next year at easter! And may the odds be ever in your favor!
Also, if you have an idea for a variation, please leave it in the comments. I would love to hear them!
