Thirsty Meeples Board Game Café
Oxford’s first and only board game café, located in the heart of the city.
Open till late every night - now licensed! Over 2,500 games and counting.....


Noah is tearing out his beard as he doesn't have much time left to finish loading his ark. After all, the clouds are gathering and the rain could come at anytime. Meanwhile, the animals are gathering before the ark and waiting to be told who goes in which stalls. A handful of people have showed up to offer help, but they look like gamblers and game players!

In Ark, the players need to help load animals and supplies into Noah's ark in preparation for the rains to come – but you can't just shove animals into stalls willy-nilly. If the meat eaters are boarded with plant eaters, you won't have those plant eaters around by the time the water recedes; the same goes for plant eaters and your leafy green supplies. Animals from cold and warm climates need to be bunked separately so that they can all be comfortable. On top of all that, you have to worry about the weight of the animals; load too many on one side of the ark and you'll all be treading water for the next forty days and forty nights...
