On The Horizon: Euphoria....


....or the full title - Euphoria:  Build a Better Dystopia.  (If you're not sure what a dystopia is, think the opposite of a utopia.  Or just play the excellent video game Bioshock: Infinite.)  The Kickstarter campaign for Euphoria launched today and I'd be promoting it just cuz the designers are such nice guys.  But after having read the rules, I can happily say this one looks pretty darn cool, too, and dripping with theme.  Yes, dripping with theme much like their previous game Viticulture... which should be arriving in the mail for me next week!

This upcoming game is a heavy worker-placement game like many designs out today, but its definitely got a few clever twists.  The cleverest part of the design, in my opinion, is that workers are represented by dice (a bit like Alien Frontiers) and the higher the value of the die (knowledge) the better the actions it can do.  However if the sum of your worker dice (knowledge) exceeds a certain amount, then one of your workers runs away.  Aha!  Get it, they're getting too smart for their own good and seek freedom.  As well, there's buildings that once completed take away options from the players who don't help construct them.  Nasty, and again totally integrated with the dystopian theme.


Definitely check out their Kickstarter campaign and take a look at the rules.  The images so far are gorgeous and if Jamey and his team over-fund this campaign as much as they did Viticulture last year, then the bonus pieces will be just as magnificent.

  6. También puede visitar una tienda de ladrillo y mortero de Michael Kors o su sitio web y comprar directamente un bolso Michael Kors desde allí. Usar un bolso de Michael Kors les permite a los demás reconocer que el habitante urbano educado toma la moda realmente con seriedad. Los bolsos de hombro son particularmente refinados y elegantes.

    En vacker konstnärlig skapelse av vävt läder, som ger ett skalskaligt utseende - liknar en snakeskin eller fiskhud, linjer utsidan av påsen. Läderens bältros är små läderringar. Det finns också gyllene accenter på väskan. Slutresultatet är svagt liknar kedjepost.

  7. I realize re renting of it this case selling a property is a pain in the butt for both the Landlord and Tenant. One thought and area for that win win situation. If you are worried about agents showing your property unannouced is you might get the landlord to put a latch on the door or even have a seperate key for bottom and top lock and you can unlock the bottom lock when appointments are scheduled and keep it locked otherwise.

    There is a lot of his father's hoodie shirt cellar and his late mentor's workshop in his office. A pair of Pyrex flasks one filled with bubbling red liquid, the other with volleyball shirts cold blue liquid sit on a table, where he uses them to prove the conductivity of the copper pipes in his lights. His 1,300 Ariel light, intended for offices but also set to appear in high end furniture stores at the end of the year, hangs above the table.
