Capture the fun and fond memories of playing Hasbro games.
This contest is over, but there are lots of new ones! Watch our weekly contest update!
Due October 21st, 2013 -
Scrabble, Game of Life, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Operation, Battleship, and Yahtzee – it’s almost like you leave the womb knowing how to play them.
We’ve all had some truly memorable experiences playing face-to-face, above one of these boards. Experiences that transcend beyond the action in the game and into real human bonds and emotion. A whole heck of a lot happens in the drama of playing a game - competition, learning, those very first emotions of winning and losing, camaraderie, and, most importantly, the connections.
Hasbro is asking the Tongal community to tell stories that will reintroduce the experience of these iconic games to our families and circle of friends. Think about what it means to open the box, unfold the board, to hold the pieces in your hands—to remember what the basement smelled like—remember what it was like to look across the board at your sibling, parent, friend, soon to be friend, connect and have fun.
The goal of this project is to create a 30-second to 1-minute video that communicates the fun and emotional connections that families and friends get from playing Hasbro games. The brand wants real, authentic and impactful stories that convey the many benefits of playing Hasbro games.
Stories should incorporate some combination of the following games:
• Game of Life
• Hungry Hungry Hippos
Don’t feel obligated to incorporate all of them into your Story. These videos should not feel like commercials or canned endorsements. Above all Hasbro wants authentic and organic feeling content.
