Introducing Happy Salmon + Giveaway

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post on behalf of North Star Games.  All opinions are my own. 


Are you and your family fans of games? Now that Jude and Teagan are getting older it is a lot easier to have some fun family game nights.  It is a great way to have some screen free time as a family any day of the week.  About a month ago I was introduced to a fun game at a local toy store, a bunch of adults played it and I was hooked!  I could not wait to introduce my family to this silly card game.

My friends, I want to introduce you to Happy Salmon!!  My new favorite card game.  Not only is the card game great for all ages but it is active and crazy! 

The first time we played as a family we did have to do a lot of explaining to Teagan.  She is 5, but once she figured it out she was hooked too.  I love a game that all of us can enjoy together and honestly, Happy Salmon is a great option for an adult only party too!  I can already see it making its debut at our next adult only summer BBQ.  

To get a little view into the Happy Salmon fun check out our most recent family game night. 



Now you want to play right?  I know I do!!  HA!  

What is Happy Salmon?


Happy Salmon is 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.  This card game can be played in under a few minutes!  But I guarantee you will be playing it over and over.  

The instructions are simple.  Everyone holds their color of cards in their hand, once the game starts, everyone must announce their action on the card.  When two players have a matching action card, they must perform that action together, then discard their top card.  Everyone continues to do this until someone has discarded their last card.  This game is loud, crazy and so much fun as you can imagine!

Each Green Happy Salmon game includes 72 cards, which equals up to a total of 6 players.  BUT, you can now buy the expanded pack Blue Happy Salmon to have even more players and fun.  The Blue Salmon is the exact same game but with different colored cards to expand the deck!  Oh and the salmon pouch is pretty much the most adorable game "box" ever!  

It doesn't surprise me that Happy Salmon is a Toy of The Year finalist in the game category!  It is number one in our books! Happy Salmon is available at multiple retailers including Walmart and Amazon and for those on a budget, this game retails at $14.99...perfect!  There is still time to bring some extra fun to your holidays by adding this to stockings or even a great hostess gift for the next party you attend.
