First Session Report, so bear with me.... With about an hour today to spare, TJ, Mary and I decided a quick game of Canyon would hit the spot. I started slow. Very slow. At one point, their five year old daughter commented on it by saying, "That color doesn't seem to move very much" or something similar. Laughs all around. By the time we got to the rapids section, I had caught up, and then the game goes in to slow motion. I enjoy this game as much as other trick taking games, like Rage, but I loathe the end game. TJ had already fallen over the rapids once, Mary was close, and I was two spaces from the end when we bunched up again. It was a five trick round, and TJ thought he could make them all. I bid conservatively at one, and Mary tried for two. No trump in my hand, and I figured TJ had five. He pulled the first four tricks on trump, but his luck ran out when my yellow six beat his lead yellow four to end it. My wins against him come rare enough, so I'll take it! This game really has its' moments, but the end game can turn a light beer and pretzels game into a long, drawn out nightmare.
