Mechs, Bears, and Toiling Workers in Stonemaier Games' Scythe! Now on Kickstarter! | Gameosity
It is the 1920's and the armored mechs of the first Great War stand idle. All the world is watching as five factions ready themselves to vie for control of Eastern Europa. Scythe, by Stonemaier Games, is an area control game for 2-5 players set in an alternative history. It uses an asymmetrical play style that gives each player control of a unique faction (Nordic, Saxony, Polania, Crimea, & Rusviet) with differing starting areas, abilities, and goals. The goal of the game is to become the most powerful faction and wrest control of the empire from your adversaries. According to the Kickstarter, Scythe has engine-building system inspired by Terra Mystica with a deterministic combat system influenced by Kemet (You can check out the rules online here). It also uses a system which allows for player conflict without player elimination. Units cannot be killed or destroyed.
