My Little Scythe Board Game Review
Once upon a time (that’s how all fairy tales start, right?), there was a father who loved his daughter very, very much. And one of the things they adored to do together was play board games. The father’s favorite game was called Scythe. And it was about Engines and building them and the struggle for power by pseudo political factions in Eastern Europa…the kind of stuff that little girls don’t find particularly interesting. They decided they would make a game something like his favorite game only using things that she enjoyed, Like little ponies, and pies and magical gems. And when they finished making the game, they shared it will all of their friends and they loved it! Everyone was very, very happy. Then, one day, all the information for the game they had made disappeared and everyone was very sad. But wait! It turned out the creator of Scythe loved the game they had created so much; he had decided to publish it so everyone could play it! And they all lived happily ever after. *ding* turn the page.
For example: Star Fleet Ship Captains had infamously bad production. The models were brittle and fragile, the hexes were made of an unspeakably cheap "paper like" material.
Conversely, Western Legends has great production value. The art is great and the mini's cool. This is info pertinent to the reader.
Liked the review though, it made me curious about Scythe in general and baby Scythe in particular.
I personally don't speak corporate. I meant it as Thank you for taking the time to read and respond. In my experience "Let me write that down" is short for GFY because I'm pretty sure that is what they are actually writing down.

You are the second person to use that phrase in response to something I said recently.
