Jamey has said they are posting the rulebook on friday morning so I guess we'll find out then.

Also Man vs Meeple have released a review video with all the player boards etc easily on show so you can view the special abilities on there.

What I'm curious about is how the abilities are replaced - is it an entirely new board, or a token which sits over them?

Watching it now Rodney!


Crimean Wayfare: Move to any unoccupied farm

Polania Meander: Pick up to 2 options for each encounter card. At the end of the game gain $3 for each encounter territory you control.

What exactly is an 'encounter territory' ? Do they just mean a normal hex and not your home base ?

Also, kinda weird that Jamey hinted that one of the new factions would interact with the Objective deck (spot for that deck being on the board serves no purpose otherwise). I guess he changed his mind ?

An encounter territory is one of the territories that begins the game with an encounter on it.

Encounter territory is one with the encounter symbol on (where you put the encounter tokens, and draw encounter cards if you finish your characters movement there). (Thats what I assume anyway, logically that makes sense).

No idea about the second point, maybe Jamey will let us know?

Edit: Dammit ninja'd!

What I've said is that when I was designing Scythe, it occurred to me that it is possible that a future expansion may offer interactions with the objective deck, so it would be better to have a place on the board for that deck. That's just a designer note, not a hint at anything specific.
