@CoOpAdventurer Congrats on being this week’s Sacred Shelf Spotlight and yes…as @BitBot said if you are alive and breathing stop by to play the meta game and reveal why these game hold a special place in your meeple heart 🙂

@BitBot Thanks for supporting the metagame. I was travelling and at a conference for the majority of the week. (Played suitcase games of Harbour and Omen on the sly quite a bit with my creative partner and SSD20 co-hort though.) (And arrived home to 4 awaiting Kickstarter boxes -huzzah!)

I can only chatter about Euphoria from my Table Truly this week. It is another beautiful contribution from The Body Stonemaier (at least the Kickstarter version is). I find it has some interesting mechanics like morale tracking and the recruit bonuses that need careful drafting consideration and can rustle up a ball of chaos when the reserve struts into play. Euphoria hit a bit of a speed bump for me initially during my recent induction into Worker Placement. After getting my toes wet with Waterdeep and then paddling around with Alien Frontiers it came off a bit dry at first having neither the Waterdeep flash nor the mega-ness of AF. I also longed for some of the dark dystopian humor of college days Paranoia. The Huxley Love in me stuck it out and began to appreciate the Soylent Green crunch of it. It definitely places in my Top Five Worker Placement Placement and is a Brave New World worth exploring. 😉

I really like the look of Euphoria. I have always wanted to build a better dystopia. Being able to do so with dice people is just icing on the cake!

Congrats on your sacred shelf feature Co-op! If Hai was around, I am sure she would remind you about the meta game and ask why these rate spots on your favorites shelf. She would say it better than I did though.

Anyone – another Euphoria review? 🙂 I’m stuck one step short of the exploration.

Sushi Go! is absolutely our new favorite filler.
It’s already gotten tons of play since Christmas.

@Artem Safarov
Yeah, I was being a tad facetious. I love Sushi Go as a filler. Euphoria is the deeper game…although medium in weight…could be played with some newbies I think. It’s a good introduction to worker placement. It is not very interactive…so Ameritrash lovers will be disappointed as theme and confrontation are minimal.

Haven’t played Euphoria, but I love Sushi Go – such a universally appealing game. Strange, @Granny – somehow it never feels brain-burny for me, even though there is math involved and all. The benefit of bite-sized decisions and all 🙂

Fans of Kingsburg and Alien Frontiers might want to check out Euphoria. The board looks quite messy at first but when you’ve gotten an overview after a game or two it will play very quickly. Of the three mentioned games Kingsburg would likely be my least favorite as repeated low rolls will be a higher nuisance.

Euphoria looks pretty interesting. I like Kingsburg, and it seems Euphoria kicks it up a notch. There’s a lot going on in this game. I must try this one sometime.

@Co-op Adventurer…

Two great games with different levels of complexity. Sushi Go is a real brain burner…

Congrats Coop adventurer on being selected. Gotta love Sushi Go, great game. Never played Euphoria yet, maybe you can tell us why these games do it for you.
