In June 2018, Scythe fans were invited to may a design for ONE encounter card using specific art. Jamey reviewed the submissions, selected his favorites (often mixing and matching various submissions), edited them, and is in the process of publishing them. The design guidelines were:
- Players must have options
- Consistent with existing encounters
- Appropriate word count and length
- Applicable to any configuration of Scythe
- Outside-the-box options
- Luke Sheldon is the designer of card 48.
- Tim Cherna is the designer of card 62.
