Hungry Hungry Hippos.. what a game, what a game it was. This game just screams nostalgia, and take me back to the good old days when our biggest worry was feeding our plastic hippo. We’re still singing the theme song until today, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Hungry Hungry Hippos…
If you don’t remember, or weren’t lucky enough to grow up with this legendary game, Hungry Hungry Hippos was a Hasbro tabletop game made for two to four players. The goal of the game was for each player to get as many marbles as possible for their hippo.
Truth be told, it really didn’t require much skill, but we all felt like the biggest champions out there when we took first place.
The game has been referenced in several movies such as Toy Story 3 and the Disney Pixar movie and is without a doubt one of the all time childhood games out there.
