German toy manufacturer Haba specializes in games that promote social interaction and lots of activity. The Dancing Eggs game utilizes dice and a carton of rubber eggs to engage the participants in a variety of fun, physical challenges. Suitable for simultaneous play by adults and children, the Dancing Eggs game features a variety of challenges. In order to properly play the game, you must first understand the correct order of play and the meaning of the images on the game dice.

Clear a table top for use as your playing surface.

Place the Dancing Eggs carton on the playing surface and open the carton.

Roll the red action die.

Cluck like a chicken and take an egg from the carton if you roll the "Laying an Egg" image of a chicken laying an egg. Take a rubber egg and drop it on the playing surface from approximately two feet if you roll the "Egg Bouncing" image of a bouncing egg. The player who grabs the egg gets to keep it. Every player grabs for the red die if you roll the "Egg Pinching" image of hands grabbing for a die. The player who grabs the egg gets to keep it. Every player runs around the table if you roll the "Egg Dance" image. The first player to get back to their seat gets to pick an egg. Everyone crows like a rooster if you roll the "Big Shout" image of a crowing rooster. The first player to crow gets an egg. Make no sound if you roll the "Big Hush" image of a rooster not crowing. Any player who crows has to return one of their eggs.

Roll the white die and place the egg in the location indicated on the die. You can pick the location if you roll the image of a jester. You must keep the egg in this position until the end of the game when someone drops an egg.

Count the number of eggs each player has after one of the players drop an egg. Each egg counts as one point; the wooden egg counts as two. The player with the most points wins.
