I'm not surprised in the slightest! I should have placed bets in that other thread going around about where it would land...in my head I was like, "oh yeah, top 10".

I'm in awe of where Scythe is on the ranking list. It's just an amalgamation of opinions, but it means a lot to me that so many people have found joy in playing Scythe. Jakub and I put 2 years of our lives into this game--it's very close to my heart.

The love and work you put into this game shows in the final product. Amazing game, congratulations on the Top 20!

Yep, congratulations to everyone involved for making a game that definitely deserves to be in the top 20!

It just hits such a nice note between Euro and Strategy, there's no clear imbalances so far and it doesn't take all day to play!

There's been some negativity towards it (heck there's always negativity on the internet) but i think that's just a good sign that the game challenges a few established conventions. -and makes people question what it is they are looking for in a board game.

What amazes me, is how fast and easily climbed to Top 20. And, don't forget that only the last few days reached the second biggest board games market - that's Europe.
I'm not such a long time into board games, but I can't remember any other title with an achievement like that. (Only "Dead Of Winter" had reached rank 21 or 22, before its release in Europe... and not so fast!).
By the way, can you imagine what I like A LOT in "Scythe"? The choice of colors! Purple, Bordeaux (Burgundy Red)... It reminds me SO MUCH "Viticulture", one of my favorite games, out there!

Even if I can't get it to the table with more than myself, I think it will make my top 20 when Dice Tower People's Choice next opens (Have I missed this year's in my six month hiatus from board gaming?). If this plays better for me with two than solo, or however many I wind up playing it... This could break into my top 3.

My congrats as well to the team! I will have to say, as a life-time gamer, and owner of hundreds of games, Stonemaier Games are the best company supported games I have ever played. Jamey, you do a fabulous job in supporting your games. It's sad to see so many publishers abandon their 'babies' at birth! I love both Viticulture and Scythe and can't play them enough!

At it's current average rating it is destined to be in the top 10. Top 20 is already a great achievement, though! Scythe also is the 3rd Stonemaier entry into the top 100, with Viticulture appearing twice. Essential Edition just needs more ratings and it'll climb very high, as well.

Here's hoping it doesn't change between now and the end of the year.

I gave it a 10/10. By far the best game I've ever played. Love just looking at it and taking it all in. The art is top notch, and the gameplay is even better.
