"Complex, Fun, Highly Replayable!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

There was a long booklet of instructions that one should read thoroughly if they are playing for the first time, but it gets easier to teach the more you play it. The concepts are unique and the game mechanics are fresh and exciting. So many ways to win, it's fun to have a different strategy every time to adapt to your faction's stren­gths.

"Worth the money and great fun with mates!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

In terms rules and play, Scythe is like the game Go. Easy to learn but the real challenge is in the strategies. It is not a game to have on your person, as it is best played with a group of people. It is a good game to play after a long time away from your friends and family. I found the set up to take a wee while, but that day I was tired. I have not played with humans yet, but the single player mode is good, it is not really a tutorial as most single player modes are. It can be used as a tutorial, but it is good as simulation of a proper game. I recommend getting a group of mates to play this game and also to get the expansion Invaders from Afar, as that adds two more playable factions and brings to maximum players to 7. To conclude, I reckon it is well worth the coin.

Description

When you die, you can take it with you!

It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa. The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow. The capitalistic city-state known simply as “The Factory,” which fuelled the war with heavily armoured mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries.

Scythe (1–5 players, 115, minutes) is a board game set in an alternate-history 1920s period. It is a time of farming and war, broken hearts and rusted gears, innovation and valour. In Scythe, each player represents a fallen leader attempting to restore their honour and lead their faction to power in Eastern Europa. Players conquer territory, enlist new recruits, reap resources, gain villagers, build structures, and activate monstrous mechs.

Players: 1–5 players
Play Time: 115 minutes
