Check out the ‘Junk In My Trunk’

March 12, 2018

CSE Games is proud to introduce Junk In My Trunk – a whimsical yet strategic card game designed by David Coleson. Coleson is known to hobbyists as the co-host of the long-running popular podcast The Spiel.

In Junk In My Trunk, the circus grounds are a mess after a great show. Clean up duties fall to the elephants, and using their trunks like vacuums, they suck up all the junk. The first player to get rid of all of their “junk” (cards) wins. Special action cards also add to the fun by allowing you to peek, swap and flip. Gameplay is based on the classic Swedish card game Vändtia. The fun and vibrant circus-themed artwork was created by acclaimed artist and game designer Josh Cappel.

“My family and I have been enjoying Vändtia, and several of it’s many variations, for over 25 years. During these years, I remember wishing it had a story and some modern game elements,” said Coleson when asked about the inspiration of Junk In My Trunk. “I hope this new story makes you giggle, and the gameplay is enjoyable to make you want to share it with everybody.”

NEWS: Junk In My Trunk was named a Game of the Year by Creative Child Magazine!

Junk In My Trunk will hit distribution at the end of May 2018, but a limited number early-bird copies are available now at The Game Preserve stores in the Indianapolis area (Dave’s local game store) and at Snakes & Lattes’ three locations in Toronto.
