Hangry Hangry Hippos is a very rules light competitive TTRPG that spun out of a quick reddit conversation. It was one of those things that got said, and then I couldn’t get it out of my head. Its written for folks who don’t play any RPGs and don’t have piles of dice or maps or any of that. Rules light should mean materials light too.
Hangry Hangry Hippos is a competitive roleplaying game set within the Wildlife Wrestling Confederation (WWC). You play one of the heavy weights, the titular Hangry Hippos. These Hippos are the main event, and compete in a four way Watermelon Rumble for the WWC Belt. The game takes place in two phases. In the Ring, and Backstage.
