89. Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia

Euphoria Build a Better Dystopia

Daniel Says: One of the most thematic worker placement games out there today. Hurt early on by some imbalances in the early release, Euphoria is a truly excellent game now that those imbalances have been corrected. Likely deserves a better reputation than it has.

86. Shipyard

Shipyard

Chris Says: Shipyard has gone underneath the radar due to the dry look and euro-fiddly design.  That said, it is one of the greatest euros ever designed. Rondels for days, theme that fits and makes sense as you build ships, multiple secret goals, and actions that give you multiple benefits. It’s a brilliant game as long as you can manage the chit invasion.

85. Fresco

Fresco

Daniel Says: An enjoyable euro game with an interesting theme and important decisions to make each turn. As in life, the most challenging aspect of the game is making sure you wake up on time.

84. The Princes of Florence

The Princes of Florence

Anthony Says: This game has a little bit of everything. It captures the urge of renaissance families eager to attract the best artists and scholars to their patronage and boost their esteem. Combining works, landscape, and social freedom, you’ll juggle several requirements to compete against your fellow families.

82. Mombasa

Mombasa

Chris Says: Expand companies, pick up special abilities, trade resources, but be careful where you lay your cards because that will be part of your future hand of cards.  Four stock tracks that offer special abilities when you reach check marks and a separate double track of resource collection all combine to be a modern day classic euro.  Brilliant in every way.

81. Rococo

Rococo

Chris Says: Drafting from your deck of cards, picking up new cards and materials at a reduced rate the less choices their are, coupled with quality artwork and engaging game play makes this dress making game an amazing light-medium euro.
