Players are fishmongers whose supply comes exclusively from the world's most contaminated body of water: Lake Miasma. Every single thing that comes out of that cesspool has SOMETHING wrong with it. How do you make a profit out of this thing?
Discount SalmonåÊis NOT a trick taking game (but claims to be) in which players simultaneously try to resolve fish quality issues or make it more difficult for other players to do the same by making bad fish even worse. Fish problems include Stinky, Dry, Poisonous, Ugly and Not a Fish. The conditions are resolved by Perfume, Lotion, Antidote, Make-Up and a Fish Costume respectively. If a fish does not already have a condition it can be added by playing Rotten Eggs, Blistering Hot Sun, Nuclear Waste, Mustache or Fish Decoy. As it's a speed game, all players are applying modifiers to the fish simultaneously. The player that resolves the last of it's remaining conditions wins the fish. The winning player is the one who has accumulated the most fish when all the fish cards have been resolved.
