About Happy Salmon:

Happy Salmon is the 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!
The Happy Salmon Blue expansion has arrived.  It's the same fintasticgame as before but with different color cards. This expansion can be played alone or with Happy Salmon Green to increase the maximum number of players from 6 to 12! 
 How to Play
  1. At the same time, everyone calls out the action shown on their top card.
  2. When two players have a match, they celebrate by performing that action together, then discard their top card.
  3. Keep doing this.  The first player to discard all their cards wins!
For even more fun, combine Happy Salmon Green with Funky Chicken to create a fin-flapping, feather-flying, good time!

About Monster Match:

In the town of Sprinkleton, monsters are running rampant and stealing all the donuts.  We need your help! 
Monster Match is the screaming-fast game of catching cute, donut eating, monsters.  Players roll the special "Monster Dice" and then race to find a monster that matches the dice rolled.  How fast can you find a monster with 3 eyes…or 4 arms?  With each monster worth different donut points, do you search for just any matching monster, or do you try to find the monster with the most donuts?
But watch out! Go too fast, you might catch the wrong monsters and lose your donuts!
How to Play
  1. Roll the dice.
  2. Find the matching monsters.
  3. The player with the most donut points wins!

This game retails for $17.99 and is available at  or where ever Northstar games are sold. Get more information at
