Egg & the Chicken is a VS 4 mini game that appears in Sonic Shuffle.
Every player is handed a bomb that is immediately thrown in a basketball hoop, with said bombs spinning on the hoop, not yet falling into the hoop. The players themselves are under the hoop, so they have to decide when they should move out from under the hoop by pressing .
The one who stays the longest under the hoop without getting hit wins, receiving thirty rings, though it is possible for there to be more than one winner. Anyone who is too slow and is hit by the bomb will lose ten rings. Sometimes the ball will roll very fast down the hoop but then go back up.
Dr. Eggman will also show up and hit the wall to disrupt to bomb's pattern.
