Brief History for those not familiar with the tradition of Egg tapping, or also known as egg fight, egg knocking, egg pacqueing, egg boxing, egg picking, or egg jarping is a traditional Easter game. In English folk traditions, the game has variously been known as "shackling", "jarping" or “dumping."
Eggs are dyed by boiling with with onion shells which gives them a nice dark colour, putting them in a stocking with leaves, with rice and other materials to create a pattern.
The rule of the game is simple. One holds a hard- boiled egg and taps the egg of another participant
with one's own egg intending to break the other's, without breaking one's own. This goes round until there is a ‘last man standingʼ.
