North Star Games’ hit game, Happy Salmon®, is a finalist for “Game of the Year” for the 2018 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards given by The Toy Association.
Known as the “Oscars” of the toy industry, the TOTY Awards honor the “best of the best” in games and toys across 17 categories. This year’s finalists were selected from over 600 nominees by a committee of retail buyers, journalists, bloggers, academics, and inventors/designers, and are being voted on by both these industry experts and consumers.
“We are extremely excited and honored to be selected for our first ever TOTY Award,” states Dominic Crapuchettes, Founder and Co-President of North Star Games. “What makes Happy Salmon so unique is that in this age of electronic gadgetry, Happy Salmon gets the entire family off the couch and interacting with each other. With mini-celebrations built into the gameplay, you can’t help but have a good time as you run around, high-fiving, fist-bumping, and doing the hilarious Happy Salmon shake with everyone playing!”
TOTY Award voting is open until January 5, 2018. All the amazing finalists can be viewed and voted on at www.ToyAwards.org. The winners will be announced on February 16, 2018.
