When it was first launched on Kickstarter, Scythe was the talk of the town. And then, long after it became available at retail, it was still the talk of the town. And then came the expansions, the legacy version, and the Cards Against Humanity-style big empty box, and the town still wouldn’t shut up about the whole thing. So when in Rome, play Scythe. This marks one of the only unboxing videos i’ve shot where i’ve actually played the game beforehand, so expect me to come off a little less confused. Not knowledgeable, by any means. But less like a senior citizen who’s wandered away from his care facility and gets picked up bumbling against the edge of a steep cliff at the bottom of a ravine somewhere.

You wouldn’t want the town to be playing a game that you aren’t, would you? Scythe costs big money, comes in a big box, and contains a big number of bits. You’ll need a big shelf to store it, and a big amount of free time to play and learn it. This is it: the test of how committed to the board game hobby you are. Admittedly, it’s not for everyone. But perhaps it’s for you?

Scyhe

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 fueled the war with heavily armored Mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries. Scythe 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 Valor. In scythe, each player represents a fallen leader attempting to restore their honor and lead their faction to power in Eastern Europa. Players conquer territory, enlist new recruits, reap resources, gain villagers, build structures, and activate monstrous Mech.
