Euphoria is a moderately complex worker placement game, where you must optimize your use of workers in a race to place 10 "Authority" tokens.   Many of the worker activities affect shared resources, so there's a balance between helping yourself and helping the other players - and limited opportunity for direct counter-play.  Generally speaking, your workers produce simple commodities, which are upgraded to resources, which are used to place victory tokens, but the general rules are modified by each player's specific "recruit" cards.

In the physical game there's a lot of fiddling with cards, tokens and progress markers, but the online version handles all of that automatically, so games are super speedy.

The set of recruits and markets in Euphoria has evolved over time; Bordspace hosts the origial recruits, the version 2 update to the recruits, and the all-new Ignorance is Bliss expansion, which includes a complete set of new markets and recruits.

Robots:  Not bad at all, but beatable.

The back story:
