These cards stop the encounters from being a reliable source to benefit your current strategy, and instead allow for more novel effects to be applied.


Designed by Jamey Stegmaier and fans of Scythe | Art and Worldbuilding by Jakub Rozalski

In the summer of 2018 Stonemaier Games challenged Scythe fans around the world to design 32 new encounter cards. The result was an outpouring of creativity and clever writing that Scythe designer Jamey Stegmaier distilled, honed, and added to. While these cards can and should be shuffled in with your other encounter cards, we recommend that people play a few games just with this new promo deck, sight unseen.


  • Scythe Encounters is a boxed set of 32 new promo encounter cards (43–74)
  • Designed by fans of Scythe and developed into the final cards by Jamey Stegmaier.
  • We recommend that you play with this deck of cards by itself a few times to experience the new options before shuffling them into the original encounter deck.
