I love a great game for the entire family and the Happy Salmon is just that. Something that everyone in your family can play. On Christmas eve I love to play a new game and this year we will be playing Happy Salmon.
The Happy Salmon game is all about “active play”and the neurobiology of touch and physical play.
Happy Salmon, along with the whole Happy Planet Games line make these types of games, solely to raise the happiness level of those playing. It’s not about winning or losing, but about having fun with friends and family.
Happy Salmon is a simple, fast-paced card game that gets everyone moving and laughing in under two minutes. Everyone simultaneously calls out the action shown on their top card – “High 5”, “Pound It”, “Switcheroo”, or “Happy Salmon”. When two players have a match, they celebrate by performing that

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!
One thing that I love about this game is that thought it is a card game you are up and moving around. This helps to keep the attention of all the players not to mention your just not sitting on your bum ? The game comes in a cute little carry pouch so when the family is ready to play everything is already together.
And it’s NOT just for kids either! Adults love this game for parties and team building! Its also great for long road trips and travel!
It took seconds for us to learn this game and does not take long to finish. Trust me when you are done playing you will want to play again. Happy Salmon is available at Target stores and Target.com this holiday season!
