Watch It Played is a series designed to teach and play games. In this episode we're going to learn how to play Scythe.

CORRECTION (23:26): You MAY build a structure on The Factory.
CORRECTION (10:08): From the FAQ: The first two sentences on the right column of page 11 (Moving into Opponent-Controlled Territories/Controlled by Workers) should read, “If your character or mech move into a territory controlled by an opponent’s workers (and no other units), its movement ends (even if you have a mech ability that would allow it to move further). Each of the opponent’s workers on that territory immediately retreats to their faction’s home base, leaving behind any resource tokens.” This reflects the original intention of the rule, which allows a player to move a character/mech into a territory containing opponent worker(s), force those worker(s) to retreat, and then move a different unit through that territory.

Going to be teaching Scythe? The designer has some tips, see Jamey Stegmaier's video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I36PY...
