The Chicken or the Egg? Game Review (Pressman)

The Chicken or the Egg? Game
What It Is

The Chicken or the Egg Game, from Pressman, comes with 200 cards, a sand timer, pencil and scoring pad. It's for 2-or-more players, ages 8+. For years, scientists, philosophers and medical professionals have been asking: which came first, the chicken or the egg? Personally, I am tired of this age-old question and ready to move onto some new, and more colorful ones. Like, what came first: The Slinky or Mr. Potato Head? Spaghetti or Meatballs? Daffy Duck or Donald Duck? If these are the sort of questions that keep you up all night, or all day searching google, you are ready to play The Chicken or the Egg Game. Players split into teams and ask each other these types of questions. Each double-sided card has one question, with the answer on the reverse side. Ask a question and then turn over the sand timer. The team can discuss and debate before answering. The opposing team should not look at the answer, because if they think their opponents are wrong, they can challenge. Points are awarded for correct answers, and deducted for wrong ones. The first team to 10 points, wins! The Chicken or the Egg Game is quick to learn, and I always love games you can play minutes after opening. In addition to the correct answers, there is a quick history lesson on each card - so, not only is this game fun, but you might learn something too. As for which came first, the chicken or the egg? I don't know, I don't really care, but now I'm hungry for breakfast AND lunch!
