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.....


The happy hunting grounds are closed for repair, the buried hatchet is nowhere to be found, and the palefaces have decided to drink their firewater themselves rather than sell it to the Indians. All this means that the young Indian braves have to find new forms of entertainment, and since Manitou has decided to let more water than usual flow through the canyon, they decide to organise a canoe race through the rapids.
Canyon is a trick-taking game in which players try to predict exactly how many tricks they will take. The number of cards in a hand increases and then decreases in size. A correct prediction gives your marker movement points around a scoring track depicted on a river in a canyon, whose main feature of interest is a section of "rapids" near the finish line where your marker will be "caught in the current" and sent back a few spaces if you go too many hands without a correct prediction.
