Kids of avid paddlers should stop reading here, because I’m about to reveal the contents of one of the gifts wrapped under your tree this Christmas!
Local paddling legend Paul Mason and adventure guide Alexandre Byette have launched a new board game called Whitewater Rescue, the goal of which – not surprisingly – is to rescue the swimmer and get off the water.
The new game, available on Paul’s website canoeinstruction.co, has been released just in time for Christmas, so all you paddling addicts can share your passion with the kiddos.
From Paul’s website:
Work as a team to rescue the swimmer and get off the river.
It’s a good day if you rescue the swimmer and all players make it to the same portage trail.
It’s a bad day if your group is unable to play the required gear cards to rescue the swimmer or a player stuck in a purple hazard. Actually, it’s game over!
Made mostly in Canada, the playing pieces are cut out of offcuts leftover from the production of TFormex canoes at the Esquif factory for authenticity.
The game sells for $47 on canoeinstruction.co, on par with most regular board games you’ll find at the mall, but fun, local, and supporting
