in Western Canal Ring

The selection of board games here is dizzying. Start with checkers, chess and mah-jong, and move on to Cathedral (build a city in the style of the Great Wall of China or the souk in Marrakesh) or Rush Hour (help a car get out of traffic). Popular card games include the strategic, Russian Roulette–style Exploding Kittens.

'Cooperative' games encourage players to play with, not against, each other.
