Child's Play? Not for 10k!
We've seen some odd prop bets in our time, but this has to be one of the most "juvenile."
Mike Thorpe and Brett Richey were just discussing playing each other heads up, but not in any variation of poker; rather, in games that you won't find within the walls of any casino.
First the board game Stratego was mentioned, but Richey admitted that he once threw a board across a room after losing that game to another person. Thorpe then suggested Hungry Hungry Hippos. "Hungry Hungry Hippos requires skill!" Thorpe quipped.
Another player suggested Candyland to which Richie replied, "Isn't Candyland just pure flipping?" Another player commented that Chutes and Ladders would be pure flipping.
"What about Operation?" someone else suggested. Both Thorpe and Richie seemed to like the idea but no official bet was made yet. They seem to be set on some kind of competition with $10,000 at stake after the Series ends. Maybe we can be there to film the epic battle.
We have to admit, watching those two duke it out "Hungry Hungry Hippo-style" sounds like a lot of fun.
