Players compete to build the most impressive pile of random objects. But, I should warn you, this is no time for complacency.

Special Rules

Weight / Score

Each Thing has a number representing its score, which may or may not be proportional to its weight.

Piling

A Player's Things represent a gently-swaying pile of objects, stacked in a specific order. When you play a new Thing, it goes onto the top of your pile.
