Score Some Cardboard Bliss!

The land of Euphoria can be a bleak and scary place. Well, it can be if you know better. If you’re ignorant of the world that is being kept from you, things may seem perfectly fine. In Euphoria, players have to navigate their way through four different faction territories in order to assert enough authority and secure the win. Perhaps that means working against the establishment. Perhaps working for them.

But you look like an intelligent person in search for some higher truth. And we may happen to have some of that truth. A big ol’ helping of it, in fact. We think you can handle a hint of this nature.

For you see, you’ve been lied to. You haven’t been given the whole picture. Do you honestly believe that the people of Euphoria would let you learn everything? How quaint.

Yes, the Euphorans have been holding out. Would you like the complete picture? To end the lies?

We have to warn you though: one you know this information, you can’t unknow it. Are you ready?

We’ve smuggled out these from the city. What you see here are the real game components to Euphoria. Forget the wooden resource pieces and the cardboard authority stars that you’ve seen in the retail version. These resources are the ones The Authority has been holding from you. Real metal, brick and stone. The genuine stuff…cardboard bliss, man….


That’s what you’re here for. Our giveaway contest this month is for the upgraded resource components and wooden authority stars that are only found in the Deluxe version of Euphoria. If you have a retail copy and are looking to upgrade, now is your chance. You cannot get them in stores. Each of the resource types are wonderful representations, with stamped gold bars, grey stone, water tokens, and brick-like pieces.

And we’re going to simply give a set of them away. Hopefully to you.

Entering this month’s contest is simple: all we’re looking for is some feedback. We have posted an article wherein Ryan talks about his five favorite gaming components. This article, in fact. The article has been posted to Facebook, G+ and Twitter.

To enter, simply do one of two things:

  1. Go to our Facebook or G+ page. Find the posting called Top 5 Favorite Game Components, and leave a comment telling us what your favorite game component is.
  2. Send us a tweet on Twitter (@CardboardNews) with the hashtag #CardboardBliss telling us what your favorite game component is.

That’s all there is to it. Be as specific as you want. The contest is open until noon on Wendesday, April 23rd. That night at 9PM (EDT), we will be hosting a Google Hangout with the leader of The Authority, Jamey Stegmaier himself. The link to that is here. Tune in, and the winner will be announced during that Hangout!

Of course you’re welcome to not enter too. But your odds of winning drop to zero. No pressure or anything.
