Hüpf hüpf, Hurra! is too much fun to be believed, and on top of that requires skill to play - great combo!

You take turns bouncing hard plastic marbles into the box, which serves as the board. You want to get three marbles in a row, any direction, and if you manage this trick then you score a point. You get a bonus point if you score 3-in-a-row of your own color.

The theme is that the frog princess shows up at the local frog pond, and all the boy frogs decide to impress her with their pond diving skills. The points are kisses from the princess.

The fact that the VP chips pool is limited to 30 points is a great feature as it means that every game will play at a very good clip.

I highly recommend this to anyone that games with kids, or people that are kids at heart.

Yeah, it's a kids game, so what? Every time I bring this out at a gathering, everyone wants to play.

I got to play with my 5 year old godson, and he loved it (though a couple of times he got so excited, he forgot to let go of the marble to bounce it, and just slammed his hand on the table

An exhilarating game. My wife purchased this one for me, just knowing I would like it, but she was not sure she would really enjoy it. She loves it! The whole mechanic of tossing your marble, having it hit the table and bounce into the interior grid of the game board really is unique. It is fun, great for 2 to 4 players, great for smack talk and bragging, I really enjoy this kids game. A kids game for adults!

As a 2-player game, we now enjoy playing this as a best 2 out of 3 experience. It becomes a true contest of skills and of course plenty more smack talk to be had.

I had only played Rein damit (not Bounce It In), which was disappointing. I now see that it was probably the small size which made me not like it very much. Hop Hop Hooray offers quite a bit of control, making for a fun little game that lasts just the right amount of time.

Above average kids game. Almost scratches a Piratenbilliards itch for me. Pretty well-balanced game that can keep adults interested. Playing until the tokens are all claimed can be a bit tedious.

Very easy to grasp the objective; not as easy to calibrate how hard or soft to bounce your pieces onto the board, especially for little ones. Still, the game's simplicity and obviousness are excellent, while still allowing for some tricks.

I would rate this higher for the amount of fun I had in playing it, but as a game - it is stunningly simple and I almost had to drop it a point or two for its simplicity.

So....7 rounds it out pretty well.

A complete blast to play!

There's something about this game that's just fun. It's a great game for everyone and the kids will surely love it.

Players are trying to bounce their balls into the grid and trying to score 3 in a row with their colors, while your opponents are trying to do the same, or maybe they're trying to block you or knock your balls out of position.

It's simple, light and very fun and plays quick. Everyone always ask to play again and again.

Another neat little dexterity game. Each player has their own set of marbles. On their turn, they bounce one into the box; the board is a grid with spaces for the marbles to land. If you get 3-in-a-row (any mix of colors), take a VP chit; if it's 3 of your own color, take 2 VP chits. If a single play creates more than 1 3-in-a-row, score them all. The game ends when the chits run out -- the player with the most VP wins!

Simple, quick ... what's not to like?

for me this only works as a three to four player game.

interestingly enough played this in the same week as coconuts and dungeon fighter, both games that share an element with this one.

there is something about it seeing the balls roll. its comparable to throwing dice to resolve fighting .

My daughter like to play this game, so I must admit that I like it too...for the sole purpose of being with my family. A good game for at least 5 minutes, after that, it begins to overstay it's welcome.

There is some small amount of skill (bounce control) involved, but not enough to make this an actual game.

For kids or people who like round things.

Bounce little balls into the big blue box. See the ball bounce. It bounces and bounces then stops. Sometimes it stops to make a line of 3 balls. Success! Sometimes it doesn't make a line of 3 balls. Sadness! We bounce balls for a while, then stop. Player with most Success is the winner.

A nice enough little diversion between games.
