The rules say "you may place your sticks on the nest" and "you may place an egg on your turn" making these sound like choices. I get that you have the option to place an egg or not but placing sticks should be compulsory. Is there something lost in translation?

Thanks

Yeah, you MUST place all the sticks on the nest. And, if you have taken a single colour stick and there's no penalty, you MAY place an egg. Sometimes, specially if there are very few sticks conforming the nest and the egg will probably fall down inside the can, you may decide not to place it, cause you might end helping another player (taking one of their eggs).

Thanks for all the rules clarifications Viktor, they really help!
If I could add a question, When you attempt to place Kiki, Does he have to stand upright, or can you lay him on his back to distribute his weight better? Could this be a child player "YES" adult player "NO" answer?

BTW, great game guys, so simple, but it's incredibly addictive; we can't put it down!

It's nicer if Kiki is standing, but it's not compulsory. So, yes, you can decide kids can put it in any way, but adults standing.
