If you are reading this, you probably have heard of Scythe and it's immense popularity. While I backed the game on Kickstarter and have had it for awhile, I only recently appreciated the genius behind the design. Rise of Fenris is a campaign style expansion in which the items in the campaign can be added to the base game as modules. I have no interest in the campaign and immediately took out the components to put into base game. My lack of interest in the campaign is 100% because of the fact: I don't have anyone who would play it with me. And while you can solo the campaign with the wonderfully designed Automa solo player, I rather play with real people.
I don't want to spoil the contents of the box, but let me just say: you are going to get A LOT out of this box that effect the game in different ways. You can add as many of them to your base game as you'd like and let me add: they are ALL good!
Empires have risen and fallen in the aftermath of the Great War, and Europa stands on the precipice of a new era. The economy is robust, morale is high, and defenses are strong. There are reports from the countryside of strange soldiers with glowing eyes, but they seem distant and harmless. Scythe: The Rise of Fenris, the conclusion to the Scythe expansion trilogy, enables two different options for any player count (1-5 if you have Scythe; 1-7 players if you have Invaders from Afar): Campaign (8 games): The story of Scythe continues and concludes with an eight-episode campaign. While the campaign includes surprises, unlocks, and persistent elements, it is fully resettable and replayable. Modular (11 modules): Instead of"or after"the campaign, the new modules in The Rise of Fenris can be used in various combinations to cater to player preferences. These modules are compatible with all Scythe expansions, and they include a fully cooperative module. While the exact nature of the episodes and modules will remain a mystery (most of these components are in 5 secret tuckboxes and on 6 punchboards), the components in this expansion include a detailed episodic guidebook, 13 plastic miniatures, 62 wooden tokens, 2 custom dice, 25 tiles, and 100+ cardboard tokens.
