Okey Dokey
Tasty Minstrel Games
The animals have gathered to put on a musical festival in Okey Dokey, a cooperative family card game.  Players work together by playing cards one at a time to a 5 x 10 grid to create a colorful music festival.  Cards have very specific ways that they can be played.  All musician cards in a single row must share the same suit and there can only be one row for each suit.  Additionally, cards can only be played in the current column and only when a column is complete can a new column be started.  The goal is to play all musicians and reset cards to complete a 5 x 10 grid (5 rows and 10 columns).  If you do, your festival is successful and you all win.
