I want to see Hasbro or Mattel market this game today.

I notice it's an outdoor game. And can you imagine the fun that ensues when you ask your mother, "Mom, where are the beetles for the game? Tim and Susan will be here any minute!"

My 1st thought goes to all those beetles that got cut in half, or worse yet, just slightly bent by incompetent gate operators.

Secondly, how may beetles come with the game? Eggs? Live? Instructions on how to catch them (train them?) in the wild?

Tertiarily (I love that word), were was P.E.T.A. back then protecting those endangered, enslaved, and tortured bugs?

The description makes it sound like "Hungry Hungry Hippos" with live 'bait.'

If one had a sadistic bend to their psyche, a hot plate attached to the underside of the table could liven up the game a bit.
