Gather Everyone Before Or After Opening The Presents For Uproarious Play With Game Of The Year Finalist Happy Salmon Or New Tentacle Tantrum & Dude

Indianapolis, IN (November 7, 2019) – Holiday hostesses planning their menus should include some serious silliness, suggests toymaker and distributor Continuum Games. More than a dozen play experts agree that Happy Salmon from North Star Games ($15.99), the multi-generational card game, will give grandparents and the grandkids many memorable moments to cherish years from now.

“I don’t remember laughing this hard playing a game…” described The Toy Insider, the guru on toy trends. “For inexplicable reasons, it is so funny and leaves me near tears every single time it happens. Once you start playing, your space becomes a whirlwind of yelling, running, and positive-reinforcement-based hand gestures. By the end of the round, everyone is laughing so hard, it’s hard to say that anyone loses.”

One (of many) 5-star amazon reviewer shared, “for a simple/easy game, it is a lot of fun…and I’m an OLD dude. I like the fact that whether playing with kids or adults or mixed, it works just fine and is a lot of fun. We laughed our heads off.” He added for emphasis in his subject line, “even if you are OLD like me.”

Speaking of seasoned dudes, Continuum Games offers a hilarious card game for teens, coeds and older where the word “dude” appears on each card in one of six different ways (dude, dude?, dooode, dewd, and so on.). Aptly titled Dude and also from North Star Games ($12.99), it’s an interactive game where everyone talks then everyone listens!

“My sister brought this game over to a recent family gathering,” wrote in one amazon consumer. “I didn’t expect much, but the game delivered. Constant laughter ensued, from reading the instructions to the gameplay itself. The whole house was laughing along with (or at) us as we sounded totally insane yelling the word “dude” at each other in different ways.” He added, “We had a group that spanned ages 8 to 46 and we all had a blast.”

Preschoolers can get into the silliness of family fun with the brand-new Tentacle Tantrum ($19.99). Each player gets a wiggly squiggly tentacle with a suction cup attached at the end. Spread out the sea creature tiles into a grid and then get ready, Aunt Susie and Uncle Michael… With a roll of the dice, a color and a sea-creature are revealed. Quick! Everyone races to snatch up tiles that match the dice either by color or sea creature type, using only the suction cup of their tentacle. Every family member will be talking about this game until the next get-together.

Gut-busting laughter, smiles and goofiness are a perfect way to spend the holidays with local or long-lost family gatherings. Look for these three family friendly games in specialty stores, online and at big-box retailers.

Happy Salmon is the simple, the fast-paced card game that gets everyone moving (and laughing) in under two minutes. Players simultaneously call out actions like “High-5”, “Pound It”, “Switcheroo”, and “Happy Salmon.” When two players match, they celebrate by performing the action and discarding their card. The first player to discard of all their cards wins! The Happy Salmon zippered pouch includes 72 cards, a rulebook, and the great-for-traveling-upstream pouch.

Dude • Ages 13+ • $12.99Dude
In a nutshell: it’s a card game where you say “dude.” The goal is to quickly find matches for as many of your cards as you can. Some cards are spelled Dewd or Doooode so it’s funny to see how people say it differently. At the same time, listen carefully to how other players are exaggerating the one-word clue. Trying to figure out if you have the same card as another player is the essence of this laugh-out-loud game. For 3-6 players.
