Game Details

Hungry Hungry Hippos is a tabletop game made for 2–4 players, produced by Hasbro. The idea for the game was published in 1967 by toy inventor Fred Kroll and it was introduced in 1978. The objective of the game is for each player to collect as many marbles as possible with their “hippo” (a toy hippopotamus model). Info from Wiki.
