The holidays are here and there are plenty of parties to attend. However, do they ever seem a little bland and mundane? We have just the thing to liven them up! While Happy Salmon is a fun family game it is also a chaotically fun party game! It’s sure to liven up any party! Take a look and you will see what I mean!

What is Happy Salmon?

You will love the Happy Salmon game because it is fun and fast and should I dare say – a little addictive?! It is a simple, fast-paced card game packed to the gills with high-fivin’, fin-flappin’ fun. Actions including the classic “High 5”, the unifying “Pound It”, the frantic “Switcheroo”, and the delightful “Happy Salmon” will leave players doubled over in laughter. With so many mini-celebrations built into the play, it’s the happiest game ever!

And, if you want to expand the fun, Happy Salmon Blue has arrived! It’s the same fintastic game as before but with different color cards. Use by itself or use in conjunction with Happy Salmon Green to expand your game to 12 players!

How to Play

The rules are simple and it only takes 30 seconds to learn how to play!

  • At the same time, everyone calls out the action shown on their top card.
  • When two players have a match, they celebrate by performing that action together, then discard their top card.
  • Keep doing this. The first player to discard all their cards wins!

What’s included:

  • 72 cards
  • Rulebook
  • Happy Salmon Pouch, making it great for traveling

As you can see, Happy Salmon isn’t just for kids even though it has been included as a Toy of the Year finalist! Adults love it as much as the kids and you will have to admit it livens things up!

Happy Salmon is available at multiple retailers including Walmart, Amazon, etc. Get yours today and check off a few names on your Christmas stocking stuffer list for a fun holiday season!
