Unapologetically casual, Hamsters vs. Hippos is a light press-your-luck game of tile flipping, lotus flower gathering, hippo-avoiding fun! It plays 1-6 players and has a separate solo mode. It’s a perfect gateway game. Quick enough to start or end game night with gamers and non-gamers alike.
The hamsters have escaped their enclosure at the zoo and are making a run for it! Suddenly they come across a pond and see their most prized possession, the Lotus Flower!
Unfortunately, lurking below the surface are hippos waiting for their favorite snack.
The hamsters must take a risk and gather as many lotus flowers as they can before all of the hippos' friends arrive to join in on the feast!
The game lasts 4 rounds with each player representing a little hamster. The player with the most lotus flowers at the end of 4 rounds wins. Each round ends when two hamsters are eaten (don't worry, you respawn for the next round).
Hamsters vs. Hippos is a press-your-luck, player movement and tile flipping game from the twisted mind of James Freeman.
