Considering to getting it , since it's in my local store



I read somewhere that the new factions are OP, is this true ? Maybe because they don't have to cross the river and have some habilites.

Also did anyone tried the automa of the expasion ? My question is if the cards are just for the new factions or they are regular cards with some symbols of the new factions added


Finally ,are they fun to play with and against


Thanks

I'm sure at some point someone will call every faction OP--you can't believe everything you read, Lyle.

If you'd like to better understand the design process behind the new factions, how not having to cross a river is both a pro and a con, and which core abilities were omitted from those factions, please read this:

http://www.analoggames.com/story/the-scythe-expansion-design...

In fact, for a more informed opinion, check out any of the reviews on this page. I don't recall any of them suggesting the new factions are OP:

http://stonemaiergames.com/games/scythe/scythe-invaders-from...

The additions to the Automa system were crafted specifically for Invaders from Afar.

The expansion will start arriving at retailers next week. The only people who have played it so far are a few reviewers and playtesters.

To answer the question about the new Automa cards, they are the same as the cards in the original Automa deck, with faction specific actions for the new factions. You replace four cards in the original deck with the four new cards. They make no changes to the way the original factions operate, only changes for the new factions.

There's nothing revolutionary in the way the Automa works with the expansion. We did try to take advantage of the cool new elements that Jamey added to the multiplayer game, to make the experience using the new factions with the Automa feel a bit different as well. I certainly hope you'll find it fun. Cheers, David

When the extra automa decks are available again, will they include the 4 updated cards for the expansion?
