Everyone is an opponent. The last one with an unbroken egg is the winner. Another way to win is to keep track of how many eggs one of your eggs breaks. Everyone is on the honor system, but it's relatively easy to keep track of those who claim to be in the running for winner--all it takes is a quick look at how many unbroken eggs a person has.

Poppa put himself in charge of handing out the eggs.
(Make note of this.)

Papa knocks eggs with everyone....a couple of times. He goes through a dozen eggs in just a few minutes.
Sometimes we get so excited, we just have to grab someone to hug tightly. If it happens to be "my best cousin," well, so much the better.
And the winner is......
Somehow he managed to end up with the oddly shaped, heavy-on-the-shell, deformed egg. It probably has nothing to do with his being in charge of handing out the eggs.
On a side note, there are a couple of towns in our parish that have egg knocking contests. The rules are strict and the competition is fierce!
I hope you had a wonderful, blessed Easter, also.
