We've had a lot of fun looking for easter eggs during our plays of Scythe. The problem is that I'm never sure if we've found all of them, or it I need to keep looking, so I wanted to see if anyone has a full list?

For those who aren't aware, there are several "Easter Egg" cameos hidden in the art on the board.



The ones we've found are listed below.

On the Board
Spoiler (click to reveal)
- Santa Claus
- Thor
- The Groke from the Moomin Series (big thanks Padre W)
- Loch Ness Monster (thanks Adria)
- Hobbit House (thanks bobbyrayiam)
- Little Red Riding Hood (thanks OverEngineered)
- A nod to the Witcher (thanks bobpony)


On Cards
Spoiler (click to reveal)
- Jamey's Cats (On a Card) (thanks GizmotronX5000 and claudermilk)
- Gateway Arch (On a Factory card) (thanks indianajo883 and bobpony)
- Albion and Togawa Factions from Invaders from Afar expansion (see https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jameystegmaier/scythe/p...), confirmed by Jamey


Does anyone have more? (Please use spoiler tags for any readers whostill want to be surprised)

I'm certain there's one in every hex. Just keep looking...

(In all honesty, I probably shouldn't have read your post this morning. My game is arriving today and in addition to unpacking it, oogl-ing over everything and such, now I'm gonna be spending hours staring at the board with a magnifying glass. Thanks for that.) laugh

I know pretty much exactly where they are. It's in one of the KS updates, too.

On the board?? If you mean a card, then I know about that, but I'm not aware of them being on the board!

Yes, the card. That's their cameo. You can even tell which is which.

There's a nod to Witcher just outside of one of the villages, I won't say which one - I'll let you hunt it down.

Jakub is a Witcher fan - he shared the easter egg early in the development of the board (maybe it was via Twitter?).

I found it but had no idea what it was until I saw your post and googled the name. Sure enough, that's it! Thanks for solving that mystery for me!

We won't know for sure until later this year, but I'm convinced that both the Albion and Togawa characters (and their animal companions) are on various encounter cards.

Indeed, we showed the art for those cards on this project update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jameystegmaier/scythe/p...

Also, here's a good Easter Egg that Inside the Box found. I didn't even know about this one!
