Finding Euphemia

Finding Euphemia is a feminist, narrative-driven original card game based on the book Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino.

Play as someone whose desperate search for their missing sister leads them to a strang city where things aren’t what they first seem. Be a good employee of SENTIRE, a mysterious service provider, or risk losing what you treasure most. Learn about the world and your elusive clients in this not-so-subtle narrative about sex work. Test your wits in an original card game based around pattern matching with a potential to get weird. Experience a unique adaptation of Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino told from a female perspective.

“And you know that in the long journey ahead of you when to keep awake against the camel’s swaying or the junk’s rocking, you start summoning up your memories one by one, your wolf will have become another wolf, your sister a different sister, your battle other battles, on your return from Euphemia, the city where memory is traded at every solstice and at every equinox.” – Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities.
