Expansion Alert! Scythe: Invaders from Afar
A new Scythe Expansion was just announced! If you haven’t already heard, it includes two new factions, each with 5 miniatures, 31 custom wooden tokens, and 1 faction mat. It will be available in Winter of 2016 for just $30 AND it scales the game up to 6 or 7 players!
While empires rise and fall in Eastern Europa, the rest of the world takes notice. Two distant factions, Albion and Togawa, send emissaries to scout the land and employ their own distinct styles of conquering.
This expansion to Scythe adds 2 new factions, each with 5 miniatures, 31 custom wooden tokens, and 1 faction mat. It also includes some new cardboard tokens, 2 new player mats, 6 Automa cards, and a custom plastic insert designed to fit into the expansion box or the original Scythe box. The expansion works seamlessly with any version of Scythe (i.e., if you have special resource tokens, that’s fine–the expansion doesn’t have any resource tokens, so there’s no conflict).
Originally the game was to be capped at 5 players, but I wanted to include 2 new player mats in the expansion. I realized that some people were going to use the mats to play 6-7 player games no matter the what the box says, so I needed to make sure the game worked for them! To scale up, the expansion includes alternate abilities for some of the original factions.
