Have you ever played Happy Salmon? This hilarious party game from North Star Games brings together a high-five, fist bump, trading places and generally having a good time. But since the 2016 release, we find this hilarious Salmon-themed title in the hands of another animal.

No irony here about cats and fish - but! Happy Salmon has found itself a new home over at Exploding Kittens with a brand new remake. Bringing the Happy Salmon which we all love, but with an Oatmeal twist from the creators of Exploding Kittens and Throw Throw Burrito.

Happy Salmon // Exploding Kittens

The game itself still fundamentally has the same theme running through in terms of gameplay, but those adorable art styles of Matthew Inman can be found glistening across each card.

The aim of the game is to win fast! Players must get rid of as many cards as they can. Boasting to be "a 90-second game that you will play for hours", the aim of the game is to match. Each player will have their own cards to match with their opponents - this may be a fish bump or the happy salmon himself. Once they have a matched their cards and their deck is replenished - they are crowned winner. Quick playthrough, and promise to be laughing your socks off as you slap one another like a flapping salmon.

The new remake adds new cards expanding the player count from eight to six, along with revised rules and playstyles. Sad times for me though that the game doesn't come in a little Happy Salmon bag! Now in a tidy box to fit in perfectly next to all of your other Exploding Kitten titles.

Exploding Kittens titles can be found in so many places, not just your FLGS. You can find them online, in a Waterstones or a WH Smith. Happy Salmon is also a frequent visitor - so keep your eyes peels for the new remake of Happy Salmon out in the wild.
