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.....


At the dawn of civilization, take the destiny of a whole people into your hands.

In front of you, the plains of the Peloponnese stretch out. In the distance, the bright shores of the mythical Atlantis. However, in order to create a stable environment in this promised land, you will need to defeat your enemies, develop technologies, build wonders, and above all pray for the clemency of the gods who watch your every action from on high in their abode on Olympos!

Based on their position on a time track, players take actions with the choices being expansion or development. Expanding brings new settlers onto the game board, depicting Greece and Atlantis, which lets you conquer territories and thereby acquire resources. Development takes place on the game’s discovery board, with players either buying new scientific discoveries (astronomy, horse riding, polytheism, strategy…) or building architectural wonders. Each discovery brings you new powers, such as an upgrade in military strength due to the phalanx, and each wonder grants you prestige points.

A player’s piety is measured by a few discoveries and a specific territory: Mount Olympus. The most pious player might be rewarded during the game by one of the nine gods included. Conversely, the less pious player(s) might be punished by those same gods.
