Junk Art is a dexterity game designed by Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim.  Junk Art contains more than ten game modes, along with more than sixty big colorful wooden components. In one version of the game, players pile all of the wooden parts in the center of the table, then are dealt a number of cards, with each card depicting one of these parts. On a turn, a player presents their left-hand neighbor with two cards from their hand. This neighbor takes one card in hand, then takes the part shown on the other card and places it on their base or on other parts that they’ve already placed. If something falls, it stays on the table and the player continues to build on whatever still stands. Once players have finished playing cards, whoever has the tallest work of art wins.

The game is very accessible and easy for newcomers to grasp quickly.  The game also includes a nice variety of challenges, keeping the game play fresh and fun.
