A creative group of individuals has managed to turn a beloved board game into a life-size party game with Human Hungry Hippos. In a video posted to YouTube by user Tanner Nielson, Human Hungry Hippos is a genius full-scale version of the game that makes use of items like laundry baskets, balloons and rolling trays.


The video features smaller children playing the first few rounds, with adults playing separately, and the game involves several people launching an individual laying down on a rolling tray into the pile of balloons in the center of the gym. The rolling tray is attached to a rope so the individual's teammates can reel them back in after they have captured balloons in their basket.

The clever full-scale Human Hungry Hippos game is still tempting aside from the inherent safety concerns.
