Scythe: Digital Edition is a digital version of the popular Scythe tabletop game, in which fallen leaders attempt to rebuild their empire in an alternate-history 1920’s Eastern Europa.
Playable in online multiplayer, in Scythe: Digital Edition each player takes on the role of a fallen leader who’s trying to restore their honor and conquer Eastern Europa. Players can attempt to capture territory, enlist recruits, build structures, gather resources and activate massive mechs. Each different leader has unique strengths and abilities, and they even have unique hidden goals to achieve.
There are some elements of luck, mainly in the form of encounter cards which you draw when interacting with citizens of a newly explored land, but generally the game is won via superior strategy rather than luck or randomness. The matches are fast paced thanks to a streamlined action-selection mechanism. There’s lots of conflict, but interestingly players can’t be eliminated and units can’t be destroyed – so victory is more about building your empire than destroying your opponents’.
Since its initial release in 2016, Scythe has earned high acclaim and won a long list of awards for its strategic empire building gameplay so a digital edition is a very welcome addition. Visually it looks like an excellent adaptation, staying faithful to the original while implementing an easily accessible UI. Sign up for the Beta now to start conquering Eastern Europa.
