SCYTHE PHOTO GALLERY
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 mechs.
Each player begins the game with different resources (strength, victory points, movement capabilities, and popularity), their choice of several faction-specific abilities, and a hidden goal. Starting positions are specially calibrated to contribute to each faction’s uniqueness and the asymmetrical nature of the game.
We have not reviewed this game yet but we can that it is one of the most popular board games in existence for a reason. This is an epic game that will take a few hours to play because there is so much detail to manage. Imagine you are playing a game of Risk but you needed to manage each and every troop in your massive force. Then throw it into an alternative steampunk / mechanized infantry history and your have this top-tier title.
