This has probably been answered, but i haven't seen it yet. I'm looking to buy this game. I hear it plays decent solo, and it says 1-5 but the picture i see of the box in some places says 2-5 on it. The basic retail version is payable solo right? You don't need collector's edition or anything else for those rules and capabilities? Also i heard about the double sided board for larger play. Is that standard for retail version too, or just special editions? Thanks

The retail version is solo playable out of the box, but it does not contain the board extension.

Austin: I think that's the old picture of the box, before we added solo. The box now says 1-5 players, as the Automa rules and cards are included in every version of the game.

Every board is double sided, but the board extension is for purchase separately--it doesn't come in the retail box.

Kicking myself for missing the Kickstarter on this one shake Looking to get it now, but the prices are crazy! Will all the components (expansions, add-ons, etc., be available with the reprint (October?)???

No, but you can see the current estimates for all of the components here: http://stonemaiergames.com/buy-scythe/

The collector's edition will not be reprinted, but the various parts will be.

will the retail packaging that is being released in 2017 have the same double sided board as the current version? I know it won't have the extension but i already ordered the extension and won't be able to get the actual game until it is released in January.
Thanks

Yes, the retail version has the double sided board.

As an aside the game was released some months ago, but we've had a hard time keeping up with the demand.
