Gnip Gnop (pronounced with hard Gs) is a two-player table-top game in which the players try to get all six balls to the opponent's side first. The game begins with three balls and three levers per side. The levers are for shooting balls to the other side. Between the two sides is a plastic barrier with its three holes slightly larger than the balls. There are three pink balls and three green balls. The game is enclosed in clear plastic to keep the balls from flying out.

Gnip Gnop was designed by Marvin Glass and Associates for Parker Brothers.[1] It was originally released in 1971.[2] Fundex Games produces a slightly modified version of the game.[3][4] Fundex filed for bankruptcy protection in September 2012.[5]

The name is the backward spelling of "Ping-Pong," the common name for table tennis.
