NorthStar Games Reveals Happy Planet Imprint and New Games ‘Funky Chicken’ & ‘Monster Match’

Happy Planet LogoHot on the heels of NorthStar Games announcing a new company imprint which will focus on light family/children’s titles, Happy Planet, the first two titles for that imprint were revealed. First up is Funky Chicken where players will have to act out matching drawn cards with fellow gamers. Second is Monster Match where players will try to catch donut gobbling creatures as quickly as they can. Both games are for ages 6+ and will arrive on the scene in April. No MSRP has been annoucend for either game but I’ll guess we should see them in the $15-$20 range.

About Funky Chicken:

Funky Chicken (NorthStar Games)Coming soon to a chicken coop near you. 

Dubbed the spiritual successor of Happy Salmon, Funky Chicken replaces Happy Salmon’s celebrations with funky dance moves. You’ll be spinning in place, hip-bumping, swinging with your partner and, of course, doing the iconic “Funky Chicken”.

How to Play
1. At the same time, everyone calls out the action shown on their top card.
2. When two players have a match, they frolic by performing that action together, then discard their top card.
3. Keep doing this.  The first player to discard all their cards wins!

Play Funky Chicken by itself or combine it with the green Happy Salmon to create a fin-flapping, feather-flying, good time!

Contents: 72 Cards, 1 Rulebook, Funky Chicken Pouch, great for crossing the road!

Funky Chicken is for 3-6 players, ages 6+, and will strut its stuff in April.

About Monster Match:

Monster Match (NorthStar Games)In the town of Sprinkleton, monsters are running rampant and stealing all the donuts. We need your help! 

Monster Match is the screaming-fast game of catching cute, donut eating, monsters. Players roll the special “Monster Dice” and then race to find a monster that matches the dice rolled. How fast can you find a monster with 3 eyes…or 4 arms? With each monster worth different donut points, do you search for just any matching monster, or do you try to find the monster with the most donuts?

But watch out! Go too fast, you might catch the wrong monsters and lose your donuts!

Contents: 55 Monster Cards, 2 Monster Dice, 1 Zilch Token, 1 Rulebook, Monster Match Pouch, perfect for when on the run!

Monster Match will look to gobble your donuts this April and is for 2-6 players ages 6+
