The Hungry Hippo Board Game Café

We'll see you real soon kids!

THE HUNGRY HIPPO, ADELAIDE'S LOCAL BOARD GAME CAFÉ. We have tasty drinks and snacks, local tunes and huge selection of games for you to come and play late into the night. 


It has come that time for this pop up to pop off and find a new home. (Gasp!) The Hungry Hippo Board Game Café will be closing its doors to our Hindley St abode at the end of the year which means our last day of trade will be Friday 23rd of Dec (Ahh!) until we find our next home.

A HUGE thank you to Renew Adelaide and UniSA for their support and taking a chance on us, it's been a truly valuable experience.

And most of all thank you to YOU our friends, family and customers for all your love, encouragement and patronage. We couldn't have got this far without YOU (aww)

We'll keep you up to date as soon as more information comes to light. In the mean time keep watching this space and reach for the stars.
