My board extension for Scythe came in this weekend. After another busy weekend of reffing a tournament at our soccer club, it was time to get this big beast to the table. Although, as you can see, you may say "what table?"...
I was just able to make it work on my table in the games room. PHEW!!! I used my handy little side table for the Automa factions (Saxony and Polania last night). The board extension is the 3-section piece on the right of the map, part of which is overhanging the table a touch so I could fit my resources and coins on the left of the table.
Here's closer look at the map just before starting the game. This gives a clearer view of the board extension on the right. You can also see, it only made sense to use the airships from the Wind Gambit expansion since the territories were so big!
Here's what the board extension does; it provides ample amount of space for all units, airships and resources in any given territory. This amount of things in a territory on the regular board, with the airship present would be very crammed.
I didn't fair as well as the other night when I played. I lost this one pretty good. Both Automa were moving quickly and also gaining stars quickly last night. They were really going at each other more than anything as you can see here. Polania and Saxony factions were simply not impressed with each other.
All in all, I'm very happy to have another piece of the Scythe collection. Before the year is out, I have a few more items I want to get to finish my collection:
