Hippo Card & Dice Game
Be the first player to give all your rubber rings to Mr Hippo.
This is a brilliantly compact game. A small box containing swimming pool cards which unite to form the board. Ideal for family excursions when you want to bring along something to entertain but weight and size matters.
Hippo is a simple concept that echos other classic games (like Shut the Box) where you have to decide how to play the numbers on the 3 dice that you roll. You can either add all or some of the dice values together, or split them in the most strategically advantageous manner. This means Hippo is a good fun way to practise early maths skills and number bonds.
Luck can play a big role in this game - rolling the number 7 gives you a huge advantage (an extra turn and a 'safe' place for one of your rubber rings). See video for more on how to play.
