Review: Scythe: Digital Edition

September 17, 2018 1 min read

Scythe. You've heard of it but never played it because none of your friends wanna take the 80-dollar plunge for a game that people might not even enjoy. So you buy the bare-bones licensed Tabletop Simulator version, knowing it has no AI but hoping some of your TTS friends will play with you. No dice. Finally, you cry out from the highest peak of Europa, "An opponent, an opponent, my kingdom for an opponent in Scythe."

Was that a little too personal? Apologies, but I've heard nothing but great things about Scythe for years around board game discussion outlets and despite that interest, I've never been able to convince my gaming group to play. Thankfully the folks at Asmodee heard the cries of people like me and made a digital adaptation of the critically acclaimed board game. Was the wait worth it? Depends on what you want out of the adaptation.
