You start by sorting the deck into different coloured piles, each with 12 cards in them. Then each player takes a deck and holds them in their hand face down. The decks contain 3 sets of 4 different cards, which all represent a different action that must be completed to get rid of the card. For example, a Happy Salmon card requires players to flap their arm into each other in a fishy greeting.
When all players are standing and ready, you all go at once. To discard a card you must match the top card with the card of another player and complete the relevant action on the card. You do this by shouting the name of your card, until you find a match. If you become frustrated with your card, you can swap it to the bottom and try again. The winner is the first player to discard all 12 of their cards and call out finished.
It's a funny silly mess of shouting and dance-like moves. With the right group it's a lot of fun and has you hooked within a matter of minutes and leaves you in fits of laughter, even if you don't win.
Play Time: This game will take between 2 minutes and 5 minutes to complete.
