Traditional game of egg fight in Balochistan on Eid

Eggs have to boiled before the game

For some Eidul Fitr celebrations would be riding horses, going to parks or enjoying rides, but for many in Balochistan it is also about playing the traditional game of egg fight or egg tapping.

The traditional game is still played in some areas of the province as the law and order situation has affected the cultural exchange and joys of the festival that was very frequent before the so-called Afghan Jihad War.

Eggs are boiled before the game. The strength of eggs is tested by eggs. In Baloch language, the pointed or top part is called ‘sarak’ while the other end is called ‘kunak’. Both ends are used in the game. The one whose egg breaks first is the loser.

It depends on the player as some of the people fight with 26 eggs while others with a carton. The winner gets all the eggs and the loser has to pay for those eggs to the vendor.
