North Star Games, the company behind the smash hit board games Happy Salmon and Wits and Wagers, is set to launch a new line of board games at the American International Toy Fair in a few weeks.

They announced “Happy Planet Games” today. This is a new line of casual games that will join up with Happy Salmon (a 2018 Toy of the Year finalist) on a mission to bring joy to gamers everywhere.

“Many games are great fun to play, but do they really make people ‘happy’? Happy Planet games have the ability to increase a player’s level of happiness” states Dominic Crapuchettes, Founder and Co-President of North Star Games. “We’ve seen it countless times. These quick and extremely fun games instantly get everyone, whether playing or observing, smiling, laughing and feeling energized. As an added bonus, nobody really cares who wins – they just want to play again!”

Funky Chicken and Monster Match join Happy Salmon as the newest members of the Happy Planet line. North Star Games will be playing these games and more at their Toy Fair Booth, #6629.

“Take all the excitement of Happy Salmon, add funky dance moves, pack it in a chicken, and you’ve got…Funky Chicken! You’ll be spinning in place, hip-bumping, swinging with your partner and, of course, doing the iconic “Funky Chicken”. Play Funky Chicken by itself or combine it with Green Happy Salmon to create a fin-flapping, feather-flying good time!”


Monster Match

  • Players: 2-6
  • Ages 6+

“Monster Match is the screaming-fast game of catching cute, donut-eating monsters. Players roll the special “Monster Dice” and race to find a monster that matches the dice rolled. How fast can you find a monster with 3 eyes…or 4 arms? Just be faster than the other players to win donut points! But watch out… if you go too fast, you might catch the wrong monster and lose your donuts!”
