I honestly can't interpret clearly the function and purpose of the egg.
If you have the egg, the "Throw the egg" card impose to pass it to an opponent (the author himself, in an interview. describes the egg as the "hot potato" of the game)... but why should I pass someone else the egg if it allows me to win the game?
Thanks in advance to those who can give clarifications.
It is worth bonus points if you are carrying it when your second dinosaur crosses the line, so it is good to be holding it late in the game.
Early in the game, it is a liability because if someone rolls the volcano on the event die, you lose your whole hand of cards and you get a fire token which loses you points.
