Our story 

My name is Nigel Hefferman and I am an inspirational architect by trade, working in this field for nearly 40 years, but my long term passion has been to invent fun and clever board games where I have enjoyed success. 

I first had the idea for game Euro Fiasco 18 months ago and the journey so far has been very exciting. Following the initial game concept inspired by the European financial mess I carefully worked on the game play and rules to include some really fun and great game challenges between the players.

After the idea and play was set, it was all about the design, we had a few variations designed, a lot of time and effort from the team was spent in getting the game to look and feel exciting as the game play was. As we really wanted the game to look like a crisis and really crazy, we then decided to commission Martin Newman the famous cartoonist and illustrator to help us bring the game to life using superb and very unique comic illustrations. 

As a team we have now produced prototypes of the game and thoroughly tested game play. Now we need your support, for us to be able to bring the game to market we need to go to manufacture which will enable us to produce the first 5,000 games. 

About the game 

2-6 Players, 8+ years Game play: 1 - 1.5 hours 

When designing the game, my goal was to make a strategic yet fun interactive game between all the players with great challenges, but with simple rules that the whole family together can enjoy. I wanted to create a game that is current, with lots of replay value, so no two games would play exactly the same.

Risks and challenges

Our entrepreneurial venture has had a few challenges but we have overcome each one and are ready to go to production.

We plan to produce the game with Cartamundi, a well respected manufacturer with many years of international experience.

We've done our homework. We've tested the game…we've tested the market…we've tested each other!

Your Pledge will make a difference! Be part of Euro Fiasco. We are on track to get the game shipped to you this before Christmas 2014. Thank you in advance for supporting Euro Fiasco!
