The first time I heard about Happy Salmon was last year during Blogger Bash. I seldom like full demonstrations because time is pretty tight, but I conceded and gave it a shot. Instantly I was in love with this ridiculously noisy game that lasted around 60 second from start to finish. We’ve brought it to game night and gaming conventions, I encouraged people to play at the North Star Games‘ booths at ChiTAG as well as at this year’s Blogger Bash and we strongly encourage it as gifts for gamers and non-gamers alike. This party game, perfectly sized for stuffing in a Christmas stocking, is our Day 21 prize in this year’s Mega Giveaway.
What I love most about this game isn’t the speed or the social engagement, but that North Star Games recognized the importance of creating a game that was accessible to all types of gamers. The original version could be played with verbal or non-verbal cues and this latest Blue Version is designed so color-blind individuals can play as well! You can combine the green and blue versions to incorporate even more players! If you’re looking for an inexpensive gift idea for a gift exchange, a teacher gift or a classmate, this would be one of my first recommendations. Of course, you can enter to win a copy of the game for yourself by entering our giveaway. Come back daily for more opportunities to enter and remember to check out our other latest current giveaways!
