Really enjoyed it. Was surprisingly easy to learn, and game play was really simple.
I’ve found that these massive broadband that take an hour or more to play a game are very intimidating to start. Especially for the first time: it takes time to blunder through the rules, and there are always a few mistakes. My brother bought Scythe three years ago, and every time we tried to play, we took one look at the instructions and decided, “meh, let’s try tomorrow. I’m already tired tonight.” And then proceed to drink another beer. If that’s been your barrier to playing, then stop it. We finally gave it a shot, and the learning curve was painless. Now that I have a learning game under my belt, I keep thinking of what strategies I want to try next time I play.
