Maker Story

Family Fun

If you want to dominate this fast-paced, so-silly-it’s-fun gestures game, it’s time to start practicing your happy salmon handshake.

For the uninitiated, the happy salmon is a type of greeting where you slap your pal’s forearm like, well, a salmon tail. Friends and game designers Ken Gruhl and Quentin Weir used to do it as kids, and it inspired them to create this high-energy card game.

It’s easy to play, loud, and a little bit goofy—so really, everything you could want from a family game night. Each player shouts out the action on their card and tries to make a match with another player. When there’s a match, players do the action together—like a happy salmon, a high five, or a switcheroo. Everyone moves through their decks until the first to finish wins. You can even play silently, with just gestures, to make it a little trickier.

When you’re done, the game stores away in—you guessed it—a happy salmon bag. We dare you not to have fun with this hands-on game.
