This will make a great ice-breaker game, and I’m definitely looking forward to bringing this one to my next convention/invitational where it will certainly be amongst the loudest games in the room! Nathan Beeler : Initially, Happy Salmon felt like Pit with a silly physicality literally slapped on it.

Happy Salmon plays almost as quickly as it is learnt and is always followed by one of two more plays if not more. Looking at the neoprene-like fish-shaped packaging, with the stupidly smug fish on it, I would forgive you for walking past this one. Happy Salmon is a cute little game, contained on a deck of cards, and cleverly packaged in a neoprene Salmon-shaped pouch. I must confess it got me intrigued as I had this game down as a cheap kid’s novelty that I was unlikely to ever try.The card names are slightly revised from Happy Salmon’s earlier release, with the excellently-titled Fish Bump replacing Pound It! One of the reasons we love North Star Games is because their games are focused directly at family audiences.

There’s no reason to expect that this won’t see the same success as the green ‘core’ set, and later this year it will be followed by ‘ Funky Chicken‘, which is the same game except with dance moves and a case shaped like a chicken. It’s a somewhat disappointing change, but one that potentially makes sense in the light of efforts to reduce plastic use and boost sustainability across the tabletop industry. Mostly when I play games I want to relax, and beat the snot out of my stupid friends through the cardboard medium. As part of the announcement, the studio said it would re-release Happy Salmon “with an Exploding Kittens twist” later this year. After starting his career writing about music, films and video games for various places, Matt spent many years as a technology, PC and video game journalist before writing about tabletop games as the editor of Tabletop Gaming magazine.Well ok, bigger picture, existentially maybe, but not when it comes to being a fan of Exploding Kittens! To entertain kids and adult alike, Happy Salmon should be carried in your bag for almost all occasions. Tarda més a arribar del que diuen quan fas la comanda però pots anar fent seguiment del paquet xq l’enviament a Espanya és amb correos. The game continues until one player finishes his final (twelfth) card and yells “FIN-ished” – that player wins.

As you can see, these actions are definitely active – fist bumps, high-fives, slapping arms, and running around. The game comes with a suite of cards and each player gets an identical deck to shuffle and start with, the only difference being that they have different coloured backs. The cards are more like plastic and incredibly durable which is great as you will be slinging them around in a bid to be the quickest. I don’t want to chuckle in the same way while playing Le Harve, there is room for all types of games. Just like her on that occasion though I am not complaining because this is a really fun game and one that I look forward to playing with my boys and friends again and again.The cards have cheerful depictions of fish indicating what you have to do on each card, but I reckon most people would understand without them! Since up to 6 people can play, it’s a great game to take along with you get together with extended family as well.

There's four actions; a high five, a fist bump, switching places with another player, and the titular "happy salmon" where players slap each-other's forearms in a way that's meant to simulate a fish flapping around in dry land. And even though the game is still loud, the loudness is hyper-condensed to a brief two-minute burst where people just mostly shout the name of an action before quickly moving on.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

Happy Salmon is a fast, hilarious game in which you must dispose of all of your cards faster than any other player.
