Hello,

Depending on the language, the rules read differently in the official booklet:

-- in romance languages (FR,IT,ES), the rules state that an egg is considered fallen if it goes all the way down the can, clonking against the bottom. ninja

-- in germanic languages (DE,EN,NL), the rules are more strict: the egg is already considered fallen if it goes below rim-level. In dutch, it's has to go completely under the rim. English is not that precise which could lead to very strict interpretation: eggs should remain completely above the edge or are considered fallen. devil

Could you please tell us what rules are intended? Thanks in advace!

For an egg to be considerd fallen, it has to be compleatly under the rim, but it is not needed for it to have gone compleatly to the bottom of it. So, germanic rules are ok.
