For when not only the hippos are hungry

Are you sick and tired of playing the same old game? Have you only got three players instead of four? Does no-one want to play with you anymore?

Well here's a new twist to your existing game. If your friends are tired of playing the same old game, here's what I suggest you do.

Through the wonders of creativity and mainly boredom I have uncovered a new spin on Hungry Hungry Hippos. Now this game does not actually include the hippos, so if you have lost that section of your board then you need not worry.

Now all Hungry Hungry Hippo players know that part of the game is you bouncing out the pearls from their trays and into the main game area, and many of you would know that if you hit the lever too hard then the pearls will just go soaring through the air, ready and eager to chip someone's tooth or poke them in the eye.

If you're a bored person you may have discovered that this is pretty fun, and perhaps you tried catching flying pearls in your hand or try and get them to land in cups or bowls or even the other team's pearl tray.

That's all fun and games, but have you ever tried replacing the pearls with Maltesers? So what I suggest you do, grab your board, stock it choc-full of Maltesers and then fire away!

See how many you can catch in your mouth, in your friend's mouth, or see if you can go in a four player all out frenzy!

A new twist for you tired old game, which is delicious and fun.
