Is there anywhere else to play this online apart from Tabletopia ?? Preferably also turn based, similar to yucata, boitajeux or BGA ..

And if not, are there plans to make it available anywhere else ??

It's also available on Tabletop Simulator. We haven't given anyone else permission to use it, as we're working on a Unity version for Steam, iOS, and Android.

oohhhh...nice

Btw, Mr. Stegmaier. i'm sure you have heard this enough but, thank you for sharing your game vision and design with us all. Scythe is just too much fun. Scythe is now the game other than Castles Of Burgundy that i have wanted to play again and again. Weird comparison but its true. Just hits the right places for me and my interests in gaming.

Anyways, did not mean to take over the context of the thread. Looking forward to online play once it's deployed.

That's very kind of you to say, Mann--thank you. I'm always happy to hear when my games hit the table more than once. Hopefully people will have the same experience when Scythe is available in more digital formats!

As for the timetable, I think it'll be in beta testing in a few months, and maybe a spring 2017 release? I'm pretty sure the first implementation will be either against the AI or pass-and-play--baby steps.

Does that mean that you have been contacted for such online implementation?
Will you refuse any request like that?

Thibaut: I wouldn't say "refuse"; we'll say, "politely decline." I have been contacted by a few people about it.

It's still a ways off, but I look forward to the app! My non gamer husband is more likely to say yes to a game on the ipad where we pass it between us then sitting at the table and setting up a game.

Hopefully, the other player mats can get added in to the Tabletopia version soon! And some further setups for games, especially against the Automa!

Has Tabletopia still not added the final art for the player mats? Or are you referring to the expansion mats?

Jamie, not sure if you can comment, but have you been approached by either boiteajeux.net or yucata.de? Those are the sites I frequent, and I'd be curious to know if either of them could/would get permission?

Tabletopia still only has one of the five player mats in the Automa mode. Additionally, there's no easy way for the player to switch the faction being played by the Automa. Currently, there's only one bonus tile, only two objective cards, and two factory cards. If you'd like me to help coordinate, feel free to cc me in the discussion with them.

Joe: I've been approached by one of them, and I politely declined. I may reconsider in the future if there's still demand for that after we've released our Scythe app.

Playing most of my games online turn-based and in a web-browser, I can say I will still ask for an online implementation even after an app. This is 2 different things, for me.

I never play boardgames online in any other way than turn-based using a web browser.

The player mats. Currently, there's only the one under the Crimean faction mat.

We're working on the Viticulture app too, though it's taking a while!

That's some awesome news too! Any timetable on that one? If they're looking for beta testers...

Rob: I don't know--I'm giving the developer plenty of time. When we're ready for beta testing, we'll turn to our ambassador system: http://stonemaiergames.com/about/ambassador-program/

By "AI" do you mean an implementation of the Automata that comes with the game, or a full simulation of other players? (or both)

The Tabletopia implementation has been updated with all the player mats (the fifth one is in the bag). Enjoy!
