Junk In My Trunk
March 18, 2017
A whimsical casual card game about elephants cleaning up junk after the circus. Use special “wild” cards strategically to peek, swap and flip.
Out of stock
The circus is over and clean up duties fall to the elephants. To make the job go faster, these playful pachyderms made a game of the task! Using their trunks like vacuums, they suck up all the junk under the big top and blow it into the trash. First small things like tickets and popcorn… all the way up to the circus’ old broken canon. Everything is blown into the trash until the circus is swept clean. The first elephant to get all of its JUNK out of its TRUNK wins the game.
Be the first player to get rid of all your cards to win the game. Special “wild” cards also add to the fun by allowing you to gather information by peeking, swapping and flipping. The excitement really picks up at the end of the game when players are trying to get rid of the final face-up and face-down cards.
Junk In My Trunk, designed by David Coleson (co-host of The Spiel) is a casual and whimsical game based on the classic Swedish card game Vändtia.
