• Set the tail card stack aside. Use these strays for your next game.
• Choose a player to start.

Hunt Down the Sounds:

• Start sniffing! Draw one green head card. Match it with one of your tail cards to make a word.
• Made a word? Check to see if the word is spelled correctly. Sniff out the spelling in a dictionary just to be sure.
