#5 Easter Egg Pacques Contests

Easter EggsEaster is almost here, and that can only mean one thing…it’s time to Pacques eggs! Pacques (pronounced \pä-kā\), or egg knocking, a game played by both the young and the young at heart, is a game of egg survival.

The rules are simple: two face off with their strongest, hardest boiled Easter eggs. One person holds an egg in their hand, while the opponent attempts to crush their egg with his. The one with the unharmed egg wins the round. Think of it as an all out cage match where many eggs enter, but only one may leave. The prize, bragging rights for the next year.

It’s a game of honor, but like any sport, there are cheaters (ya, I’m talking about you Daryl). Some use illegal performance enhancers like clear nail polish while others use fake ceramic eggs. Some cheaters will even ‘knuckle’ their opponents egg. It’s not a proper pacques contest unless at least one child is bawling. Toughens dem lil bastards up.

  1. You need to get guinea eggs if you want to cheat in a traditional manner…

    Or find somebody with eggs from free-range chickens. Those eggs are much stronger than store-bought…


  2. There’s also the raw egg trick used by at least one family member every Easter. Usually the family clown or the passive agressive.
