Mankind has long been confined to travel by land and sea, but a new technology has emerged from the greatest minds in Eastern Europa: airships. These steam-driven behemoths sail freely across the sky, aiding their empire's expansion through innovation and confrontation.
As the years pass, the world has come to understand that no single faction will rise above the rest for any span of time. In the hopes of decreasing the conflict and increasing the peace, leaders of Europa begin to gather each year to declare a new way for the factions to resolve their differences.
Scythe: The Wind Gambit adds two new modules to the base game that can be played together or separately at any player count. Soar across Europa in massive airships that increase your mobility or change the end goal of the game with new resolutions. Add new options to Scythe with !
Airships and Resolutions
The Airship Module introduces Airship units to the game, large flying ships which allow you to transport resources or workers across Europa with ease. At the beginning of the game, one Passive Airship Ability Tile and one Aggressive Airship Ability Tile are drawn, and each Airship has those abilities. Airships float high above the ground, so they cannot occupy any territory, but they can move through occupied territories with ease.
The unique Airship abilities provide a different axis upon which to enact your strategy. The passive abilities generally improve an action or provide you with another option, such as increasing the number of resources you gain from the airship's territory or allowing you to deploy mechs and build buildings as if it were a worker. Meanwhile, the aggressive abilities dictate whether your Airship can carry workers or resources and sets the rules of interaction between airships, other types of units, and the board.
The second module Scythe: The Wind Gambit adds is the Resolution Module. This module changes the way the game ends, providing a new end game trigger for players to work toward. Retool your strategy to take advantage of your new goals to come out ahead of your opponents!
