Kemet & Agricola & Stonemaier & Jakub Różalski.

I know better than to be overly excited about a game I've only heard about in brief, accompanied with a bit of art, but I can't deny, this combo of ingredients has me very, very interested.

Take your time with this one guys, this could be right up my alley!

Thanks Rodney! Kemet knows no love greater than yours, so we'll see in a year or so how Scythe stacks up.

Well I did just get Tragedy Looper, but I don't think that lets me travel to the future... or at least we haven't gotten to that script... yet.

I think that's in the third scenario of Tragedy Looper. You'll get there.

The science of history is a great bulwark against the stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of oblivion

And let me know when the box art is final because I'm making microbadges already....

Thanks Daniel! The box art is final. It's possible we'll make the smallest of changes before it gets published, but you can consider this the final box art.

You got me jumping out my pants for this one. There is even some bit chomping and mouth frothing going on.

Sythe is on my subscription list now, please keep us updated.

Fantastic. Here's a pro-tip for you: Mark this whatever price you want because I'll be buying it at any cost simply based on the box art.

Oh yeah this really looks and sounds amazing

More information please...

How will the asymmetric factions differ? (Different Troops, technologies, goals, ...???)

Daniel: I'm hoping to keep it to $50 or $60 MSRP at most. There's going to be a lot of stuff in the box, but if we produce it at scale, we should be able to do that.

Sven: The game is still very early in development, so it's hard to say too much with accuracy. As of now, each faction has a unique deck of soldier characters (infantry, cavalry, animals, and mechs), as well as a unique territory, and unique starting resources/tech-tree levels. There's also a separate deck of villagers, but it's accessible to all players.

Been thinking about getting both Kemet and Agricola for a long time now, but they're not near the top of my list.

Looks like I could just get this!
Plus, MECHS!

Can't wait for this!

I just caught myself throwing money at my monitor.

I am looking forward to another fine Stonemaier release. The art looks fantastic.

The Premise sounds great!

The only thing that's giving me pause is the dreaded 'A' word.... I reeeeally don't like Agricola. So I'm hoping that's more of an elevator pitch lingo and less the direction is actually going.

I have full faith in Jamey and Alan's design skill - and if someone can make an enjoyable game out of Agricola - they're the ones to do it.

I'll be backing as well, based solely on the pedigree of the publisher. thumbsup

I've never played Kemet, and while Agricola isn't a favorite I'm willing to give this a go. (Trying to persuade a couple of friends to fix the Kemet issue.)

I'm excited just because I know the components are going to be good.

I'm only curious how will my cat be able to interact with this game?

Itai and Steven: It's mostly pitch lingo. The games mechanisms are nothing like Agricola, but it's the quintessential farming game, and farming/producing resources is very important in Scythe.

Andrew: The game will have plenty of components for your cat to push off the table.
