When the salmon leap up the waterfalls as they hike upriver, the Grizzly family is overjoyed!

Players play bears whose role is to catch more salmon than your fellow players. There are most of them at the edge of the waterfall. But beware: That's where it is the slipperiest!

Ages 6+ 2-4 players

Fun for kids & parents: strategy that's simple enough for kids, but engaging for parents

Dynamic game board:  the stream flows toward the waterfall on every turn as players slide in pieces, making the bears and fish tumble over the edge.  kids love the anticipation and the opportunity to sabotage parents’ progress!

How to play:  on each turn, slide in water tiles to make the river flow, jump salmon up the waterfall, and move your bear.  then use strategy to block other bears and figure out when to risk moving to the edge of the waterfall. as the game goes on that’s where the most fish will be, but if you get too close and the river washes you over it’s bear down!

Includes:  4 bear playing pieces, 4 bear stands, 5 wooden fish/water dice, 4 bear markers, 70 water tiles, 53 fish tokens, 1 folding game board, 2 game markers, illustrated instructions
