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.
Get Your Own Copy of Scythe
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?
