One of my favourites. Great game and although looks complicated it isn't particularly. Better with the invaders from afar expansion which adds two new factions for some added variability.

NBP is Amazon. 8.3 on BGG

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 Worker Placement/Economic Engine 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.

On my wishlist. No rush to get as so many games to play so waiting for a second hand deal for under £40 to come along or an amazing deal with a voucher.

This must be one of the cheapest new prices its been, heat.

Just looking, cheapest Amazon have ever had this is £49.25.

Thanks, it was slightly cheaper with the Chaos Cards code before Christmas but went oos and code now expired.
It's a great game and mechanics work really well. Only problem I have is played it too much so you sort of play it the same way now, even though there are multiple routes to victory points.
I'll probably pick the rise of fenris expansion up and give it another go as it really is a top game, it's between this and Viticulture as my number 1.

That's interesting, We have found that with a few games, once you find the optimal route/path for victory points, it is almost pointless playing any other way unless your opponent forces your hand etc.

Maybe like you say, if you like the game, expansions are the way to go to make the game more interesting.

Yep that's exactly what I meant. We also find that if you make a few mistakes early on it is very hard to pull it back round again.
Still a great game though

How do you go about finding second hand games? Just via ebay and charity shops? I'd like to swap some games out for new ones, too

There's the geek market on bgg that sometimes does swaps. Need to find a willing UK member though.
I've not found any "modern" ones in charity shops but have found a few decent ones (blokus 3d being one of them). I don't live where there is a massive active gaming community but if you have a local game store then might be worth asking them as may have ex display/demo copies. Or know someone looking to offload. Same with boardgame cafes?

There's some big board game groups on Facebook where you can buy and sell loads of game. There's where I get most of my second hand games.

I rarely buy new games anymore (unless Jay posts an unmissable game on here!) and only use facebook to buy second hand, condition is always great as people like to look after their games. Like berek4breakfast says "Board game and trading chat UK" is the biggest and best, loads of information in the group and friendly community.

"It's dangerous though as its basically my only reason I go on Facebook and often results in me impulse buying lots of stuff"
^^^^^^^^^^^This is exactly the same as me, don't go on facebook for any other reason!! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Jay don’t do it. We are members of these groups. If you think you spend too much money on games now then these groups are next level when it comes to buying too many board games!

I scout Dominion expansions a lot on eBay and Gumtree (love Dominion). If you want to swap some games I really recommend selling them on eBay; for some reason they really retain their value well (you might even make all your money back).

Haha, I'm usually quite strong but my downfall is KS. I'll probably be able to resist buying loads of things but might see what is available. It can't hurt to look right...

I paid about £15 more than this and am extremely happy with the investment. Currently had about 30 hours play out of it and after a bit of a break will dust it off again.
If only I could be bothered to paint the miniatures. Rising Sun is taking me ages to paint so this is well down the list.
Request to join FB group submitted. Unrelated, but second mortgage also applied for
What have I done, first post I saw was someone selling Yokohama... This could end badly, must resist.

There are some absolute bargains on there, but you have to be quick. Everyone knows the price point of games so if someone is selling a game cheap it usually sells within minutes, if not seconds. Luckily my Facebook obsessed wife have picked up a few gems.

I second Crosshatch view on Ebay, very expensive place for second hand games so great place to sell your unwanted games.

My father in law found Twilight Imperium in a charity shop somewhere in Shropshire. He bought it for £2.50 as he knows I like games. He had no idea what it was but it "looked good".

Awesome, I picked up colditz for 50p from a jumble sale about 25 years ago. Turns out it's the 70s version with the red Cross pack in it
I'm keeping it now though
Back up in price, expires
