Take up the command of one of 7 factions, and set out to conquer Europe. Lead your mechs to war and your people to victory!

Scythe: Digital Edition is a mobile version of an awarded strategy board game with multiplayer for 1-5 players (with DLC for up to 7 players!). Divide and rule in an alternate reality in 1920s Europe, filled with mechs. Become the commander of a selected faction and lead it to victory in this 4X tabletop game!

Choose your faction
Each nation in Scythe: Digital Edition provides completely different possibilities. Be the hero of one of the seven factions: Saxony Empire, Crimean Khanate, Rusviet Union, Polania Republic, Nordic Kingdom, Clan Albion or Togawa Shogunate*. For the unique gameplay, pick a speciality: agriculturalist, industrialist, engineer, patriot or mechanic.

Embrace the 4X mechanics
Explore the land surrounding the Factory and be aware of the dangers waiting there. Expand your faction by claiming new territories. Exploit and gather resources to upgrade your buildings. Exterminate opposing enemies or dominate the game economically.

Engage asymmetric gameplay
From the very beginning, players start the game with different resources, a different starting location and a secret objective. It reflects the unpredictability of the board game and encourages experimentation. Move around the board, recruit units and fight your way to the top in a turn-based style!

Play with other players
Fight on your own terms, adjusting the mats to your preferences. Take three levels of AI to fine-tune your strategy, then challenge other players. In Scythe: Digital Edition, you can play with your friends in a hot-seat or try your best in online multiplayer with up to 7 players. Europe is waiting!

*You can buy Clan Albion and Togawa Shogunate in DLC Invaders from Afar via the in-game store as additional factions.

Good conversion to digital with 2 major problems

This is a great conversion of a very complicated board game, however 2 glaring issues keep it from being 5 stars.
1. The incessant Asmodee account pop-ups are infuriating. Especially when I normally only play offline against the CPU. It’s even more annoying to get the pop-ups in airplane mode on a flight.
2. There is no undo mid-turn. Sometimes I accidentally tap on something to clear/open a window, I tap instead of drag or in some cases, I would like to see what move is possible; but either way, I have to finish the turn, wait for all the CPU turns, pretend I didn’t see what they did and then hit undo. Let’s get a better undo for a game with so many options
3. Smaller problem, but the way to check opponents’ game mats is glitchy/broken for me on iPad.

Amazing - IFA??

Sadly I have to update my review. Looks like Knights of Unity are under new management, and don’t care whatsoever about their products anymore. It makes their website look like quite a joke - transparency and dependability?? The game simply won’t even load to the main menu, and appears this has been the case for MONTHS now. This is disgusting, even by EA standards. No support, no contact - I won’t be buying another game made by this gross company.

love this game, and I think the LoU guys did a fine job with this implementation! I’d love for some more UX enhancements that make it a little easier to access game information, particularly modals or slide outs that can be toggled, or perhaps a small icon-based hud when an entity or icon is tapped. Most importantly, I’m hoping we can get Invaders from Afar for this platform - being able to practice Albion or Togawa on the go would be incredibly helpful for my game!!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review :) We forward it to the team!


Released finished game EDIT: Nevermind I’m dumb

You can’t use “2 move” action on the same unit (character or worker). Turn 1 of game 1 and I can’t move my character 2 spaces to pick up encounter. If this very basic action is wrong who knows what else is wrong. Please refund money or fix game. Pretty sad for $8 game.

Edit: I followed the digital in game rules link and under top row move it says to move 2 different (italicized) units. I thought that was a change in a newer edition or something because we’ve played Scythe for years without noticing you couldn’t use both move actions on same unit. I opened my physical rule book and there is was. Two different units. Now I’m questioning everything I thought I knew about everything as I may have just worm holed into a parallel universe where the only difference is you can’t move the same character twice in scythe.
