What do bored English noblemen do with their free time? Well, according to this Klaus Teuber Spiel des Jahres (1990) winner, they like collecting old junk and then showing it off. Players buy or steal various pieces of junk in the form of cards, trying to form the largest and oldest collection. Built on a 'rock-paper-scissors' mechanism, this game gives all players a couple of choices each turn. The trick is in guessing what your opponents are likely to do, and planning your choice accordingly; only after everyone's decision is revealed do you know for certain whether you made the right one.

Apples to Apples Jr.
GM: Joanna Melton, VA

In this game, there are two decks of cards: Things and Descriptions. Each turn, the current referee selects a Description and players try to pick, from the cards in their hands, the Things that best match that Description. The referee then chooses the Thing that appeals most and awards the card to the player who played it. The first player to be awarded a pre-determined number of cards, wins.

Beep Beep Jr.
GM: Jenna Sunderlin
Th19 (R1/2) • 1 hour • SE
A fast-paced game of driving through a forest and swerving to miss the wildlife. The game consists of a small rubber squeaky car and 112 cards each with an animal in a particular color on it. Players simultaneously try to match either the animal OR the color to those they have already avoided. When three of the same color or animal appear at the same time, hit the squeaky car to Beep! Beep! your horn and get them out of the way.
The player who avoids the most animals wins.
