    What's the gist of this game?

    • +7

      It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa. The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow. The capitalistic city-state known simply as “The Factory”, which fueled the war with heavily armored mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries.
      Scythe is a 4X board game set in an alternate-history 1920s period. It is a time of farming and war, broken hearts and rusted gears, innovation and valor. In Scythe, each player represents a character from one of five factions of Eastern Europa who are attempting to earn their fortune and claim their faction's stake in the land around the mysterious Factory. Players conquer territory, enlist new recruits, reap resources, gain villagers, build structures, and activate monstrous mechs.

          Cut and paste is pretty neat feature.

            @Fredorishi:

            Cut and paste is pretty neat feature.

            Yes, but to cut and paste each character would take me 10-15 minutes !!!

          pretty sure you'd be twice as fast if you didn't highlight so many words..

          • @Jaspa7:

            if you didn't highlight so many words..

            How many should I highlight?

      But personally I was hoping it was about the books of the same name. "Gleaning" (killing) people with zero consequences would have been way more fun!

  • +1

    Looks interesting, anyone played this?

    • Yeah. Fantastic game for 1-5 players (expansion can increase it to 1-7 players).

    • Yeah I picked this up last year. Been my favourite game for awhile. I highly recommend it.

    • I've been playing it recently. Minimal combat but reasonably strategic resource management and territory control for the most part. Been enjoying it so far.

    • -1

      I'd give it a solid 7 out of 10 - but that puts dozens and dozens of games ahead of it which makes it pretty hard to recommend.

      lots of cool ideas and exceptional artwork, but it's all a little half-baked IMO - I particularly dislike the end game condition and the final scoring. Some of the things I don't like are somewhat fixed with the expansions, but there's a lot of bloat there too and you're looking at quite a few extra dollars to get them all.

  • Any discount for the Scythe expansions?

    • Sorry, not ATM.

  • +2

    Damn! I was just hoping to find a discount on this game! OzBargin is the best!!!

    • Is that an Australian Gin Bar?

    Good price but I would avoid shopping with Gamerholic, terrible customer service.

    Waiting for a sale for nova luna and Hansa teutonica…one day..

    • +1

      Hansa - Sold out for awhile, but Nova Luna might in October :)

      We will aim to do 1 sale a month

    • Hansa is worth RRP.

  • +10

    See comments on previous deals. Probably best to stick to your friendly local since Board games have (profanity) all margins.

    OP posts ever so often
    People comments about lack of communication from OP once order placed
    OP promises to look into it (possibly because he does not want his sales to be affected)
    And we don't hear from OP until his next post

    Fun fact
    Gamerholic is the only Australian store on Boardgame Oracle where users have reported an issue with this retailer

    • Unfortunately they have accepted purchase of games they no longer have in stock. Happened to me a while ago. A game was supposedly in stock, bought it, didn't hear from them for a week and a half. It was only when I inquired that they fessed up to not actually having it in stock. I do wonder what would've happened had I not sent them an email. Having said that I've bought off them before without issue.

        you forgot to add- only when we post on ozbargain

        from OPs post 9/8/21

        Guys, you said something similar the last time I complained about this on OzB many months ago. I sent through all the information back then but you could not match it to your records even though I sent precise PayPal Invoice and eBay purchase details.
        I gave up because having spent hours already on this, my time was worth a lot more than the $80 or whatever the value was that I lost.

        and from OPs post 13/07/2021
        https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/637629

        Here's my poor experience. They still owe me a refund (+ the shipping costs) of a game called Concordia Venus (purchased approximately 2 years ago).

        I bet you those two customers never received a decent response in 24 hours

        • I can actually provide an update with this. They refunded the cost of the game but not the shipping. I sent a few follow up emails and didn't get a proper response (things like they've already put through the refund etc). The best part was I got charged the PayPal fee, so I got about $1-1.50 less than what I paid for the game (and of course no shipping refund).

          Similar to the other story you qouted I also got the BS of it not matching their records despite receipts etc.

          Overall an experience of 1/10 (actually straight up zero, two years for a partial refund and literally nothing else? I paid roughly $20 for this experience.) Would recommend avoiding for the saving of $10 relative to other stores, not worth the hassle.

          Negged it this time Vs my previous post because I was open to see what would happen.

          • @gnarlyrocks:

            They refunded the cost of the game but not the shipping

            Thanks for the update mate

            Just to confirm you ordered a game, they sent you the wrong one, and it took them over two years to refund your money minus shipping costs $20, for their mistake?

            And in those two years did OP always respond within 24 business hours as he claims he does

            • @docians: Essentially that's right (also minus PayPal fees for the refund lol). No, lots of long periods of no contact and I'd always have to initiate talks

        I asked

        And in those two years did OP always respond within 24 business hours as he claims he does

        The truth

        No, lots of long periods of no contact and I'd always have to initiate talks

        Looks like the only time OP responds within 24 business hours, is on Ozbargain and that too only when he has a new sale here

    As per above post… It's a well known name on Facebook board game groups. Do some digging and come to your own conclusions…

    That said price looked really good until I saw the seller.

    Wasn't this $80 delivered on Amazon recently ?

    • +1

      It was $63.60 back in 2019, but I dont seem find any deal from Amazon these 2 years….

      • ah the good old days
        I had purchased this for $63.51 in 8/2019, back when cashback for games was a regular thing

  • Waiting for a free shipping code, I have others games I want to get but with the shipping, it ends up more expensive…

  • Says $95 for me

    • Please use the discount code!

    Amazing these guys are still allowed to post here

  • Are you guys likely to get any Memoir 44 stock in shortly and any chance of a deal?

    • -1

      We have it in stock but given the limited amount, I don't think we can offer a deal at this stage.

      • Oh, OP checks in on the deal to talk about selling a product, But Doesn't address all the problems above?

        Good customer service there /s

        • He's all about the munny hunny bunny

          • @docians: 44 + vs 2- votes means they'll continues to receive free advertising from Ozb. Trouble with seller is a valid neg reason btw
