It's a rolling polar bear jam! Roll the colored dice to collect high scoring polar bears from the rink. Roll doubles to trip up opponents or Free Skate to take your pick of the pack. But press your luck too far and you may wind up flat on your face! The player with the most points skates away with the victory.

Polar bears are the worlds largest land predator, standing up to 10 feet tall and weighing around 1,000 pounds. Now imagine a pack of them sliding towards you on roller skatesĶ better get out of the way fast! Speaking of fast, Polar Derby is a game of quick decision-making. Should you keep rolling or should you quit while youre ahead? Its also a game where fortunes change quickly! One moment youre on a roll, next moment youre skating on thin ice!
