I’ve been playing heaps of games but I keep forgetting to post in here. Last night I finally played Scythe! I think I did pretty well, came third, only three points behind second.
I sure like the aesthetics and a lot of the mechanics, but the cards add a bit too much luck for my liking to a game that’s longer than one hour. One of my friends got objective cards that really didn’t mesh with her faction so slowed her down a lot, for example. I got a really easy one and knocked it off in a few turns. Then there are the combat and encounter cards, they feel out of place with the more elegant elements of the game. I liked it enough that I would play it one or two more times, but I don’t think I’d want to go further than that.
We also played with the airship expansion which SURE LOOKS COOL even though they keep blocking the board and don’t really add much game wise.
