My review of Euphoria was just published on the Spring 2014 issue of Gamers Alliance Report, probably the most followed and known board games magazine in US.
Are more than 4500 backers and more than $300,000 pledged enough to say that Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia, designed by Jamey Stegmaier and Alan Stone, a good game? I got Jamey Stegmaier’s Viticulture and I was well impressed by its core mechanics but not satisfied about balancing so I was a little worried about Euphoria. The rules seemed good and solid but, of course, you can’t really judge a meal by the recipe, you need to test it. So, after several session, can I say Euphoria is “well cooked”? In this review, I’ll try to point out the strong points and weaknesses of this game.
