Start the new year off with a Polar Bear Plunge! Choose 15 target words for each player. Five will become their hand, the remaining 10 are placed face down in front of them. Forty-five direction cards are placed in the center of play.

On your turn, select a direction card which will instruct you to "draw" or "plunge" (discard) a polar bear saying your target words as you go. The object is to be the first to get rid of all your cards.
Great for groups since the targets can be different for each player. In keeping with current best practices, lots of voiced targets are included. If there is an additional target you need, please contact me directly. I'm happy to add it!

Initial, medial and final position sounds are included for:
R: prevocalic and all vocalic Rs are represented
S/Z, L, TH, SH, J, K/G

Cards are appropriate for color or black and white printing.
