Set in Artist Justin Hillgrove’s Imp Lands world, JunKing is a multiplayer strategy card game of 2-6 players where players assume the role of Scavenger Imps sifting through the massive piles of garbage in the Junklands looking for prestigious items to raise their social standing with their tribe.
Everyone draws off the same shuffled deck of cards in the center of play, called the Junkpile. On your turn, you draw a card, place a piece of junk into play from your hand, and then activate one of the abilities on your junk or use your character's ability.
All junk is worth something. In the Junkpile, there is one card that is the most coveted of items called The Crown. Once a player draws that card, the game is over and everyone adds up the points displayed on the pieces of junk they have found or hoarded. The player with the most points wins the current round. The game only takes about 15 minutes to play, and is designed for multiple rounds of play.
