In Hippo, a player wants to get rid of all their buoy chips by placing them strategically in Mr. Hippo's swimming pool. The swimming lanes are numbered from 1 to 12, and lane number 7 is Mr. Hippo's little basin. The players roll three dice and decide to use their value separately or add them up. Whoever rolls and uses a 7 gets to play again. Chips can be kicked out of the pool again if one lane is full and a player plays there again.
