In the centre of the table is an egg with thought bubbles with various food items. The egg is hungry and tells you what it wants to eat! The bubbles disappear and, after a while, the food items reappear. The players have to rub the right food to feed the baby monster. The monster will spit it out if you make the wrong choice. Get it right and the egg will get bigger and bigger until… it hatches! What will the baby monster look like?
