Having now vigorously revisited this, I’m rather glad I didn’t write this review on my initial close encounter, time has, in […]

Fantasy Flight Games like their Game Of Thrones license. They really, really like it, based on the number of products they appear to be releasing within a rapid succession of one another.

Scythe was massively hyped even before hitting Kickstarter and unsurprisingly proceeded to smash through its initial funding goal in a matter of hours, going on to be really rather popular.

Initial Thoughts on Scythe
