Haven’t backed Scythe yet. But our postman did recently refer to us as what’s ‘keeping him in business’. We do have a friend in our main gaming group who’s hovering around the idea of backing Scythe. Hoping he takes the plunge so we don’t have to. Getting too close to Christmas to be dropping that amount of money on a game, regardless of how good it looks. But damn if it doesn’t look good. And the game play seems to be an arresting mix of Euro engine building and civ building, with some good ol’ fashioned aggressive area control with some smashy mechs in the mix. What seems like too many elements supposedly blends quite well though, although I’ve yet to see a comprehensive review from a site I really trust.
Doesn’t mean I want it any less.
Right then, with that out of the way, here’s the big question, and no, it’s not too early to ask it: What’s everyone getting for Christmas? I mean, what’s the big deal, the one game that’s top of the list, must have, want want want, can’t wait for Christmas type deal? We might be trying to decide on some present ideas here at Tiny Wooden Towers.
