Set in an alternative 1920’s, Scythe originally launched as a physical board game in August of 2016. In the game players take the role of a disgraced leader attempting to rise back to power and lead their faction to rule over Eastern Europa. Players compete for resources, recruit armies, harvest resources, build powerful mechs, take territory, and reap their rewards to conquer and beat their fellow players. The physical edition of the game won multiple awards including five BoardGameGeek Golden Geek awards, the Origins Board Game of the Year award, and many more.
