If I win a pie fight as a defender, am I required to place a trophy token?
No, it’s optional.
If I’ve met the requirements for a Personality card, am I required to reveal it and earn a trophy?
No, you can wait until it’s best for you to reveal that information.
If my Seeker moves onto a territory with a Quest token, is it required to stop and see the Quest, or can I ignore it and continue to move another space (pending other movement rules?
Yes, you may ignore Quests as you move Seekers.
Are base camps treated like other spaces on the board?
No, base camps are not spaces and can never contain resources or quests.
For the Pie Cannon power up tile, do I get the bonus whenever anyone initiates a pie fight?
No, it’s only when you are involved in a pie fight as an attacker or defender.
For the Supply Catapult power up tile, when exactly is the ability used?
This ability can only be used after the entire Move action is resolved, including all pie fights and quests.
For the Portal Express power up tile, can my seekers jump to all portals within a single Move action?
No. A better way to phrase this ability is, “As a part of your Move action, your Seekers may each make one free portal jump between 2 portals.”
For the Help with Apples quest card, if I choose the “Donate Apples” option, where do the apples come from?
You must have 2 apples under your control on the board–it’s those apples you’ll donate to another player.
In which row of the Trophy Track does the Automountie place trophies?
When Automountie places a trophy because she has sufficient tokens, she places them left to right in the top row of the Trophy Track.
What are the card sizes and quantities in My Little Scythe?
71 cards at the 57x87mm size.
Does the insert fit sleeved cards? Does it have room for expansions?
Yes, the insert fits sleeved cards (that’s a standard feature for all Game Trayz inserts). And yes, we’ve included specific slots for expansion content.
Some of my tokens come loose when I transport the game even though I’m organizing the components based on the instructions. What’s up?
We realized that it’s best to store the game board between the two trays. It will prevent any of the tokens from coming loose.
Is this just a reskinned kids version of Scythe?
Nope, not at all! It does have some streamlined versions of mechanisms in Scythe, but it is its own game, and it’s geared towards gamers of all ages.
Is it language independent?
My Little Scythe is about 80% language independent. There are quest cards and upgrade tiles that need to be read once, but there isn’t any text that needs to constantly be referred to during the game. If you have 1 English speaker at the table, you’ll be fine.
Will My Little Scythe be released in other languages?
Yes! Our partners will announce their versions when they’re ready. Spieleschmiede is publishing the German version, Matagot the French version, Maldito the Spanish version, and Ghenos the Italian version.
