Empires have risen and fallen in the aftermath of the Great War, and Europa stands on the precipice of a new era. The economy is robust, morale is high, and defenses are strong. There are reports from the countryside of strange soldiers with glowing eyes, but they seem distant and harmless.

Scythe: The Rise of Fenris, the conclusion to the Scythe expansion trilogy, enables two different options for any player count (1-5 if you have Scythe; 1-7 players if you have Invaders from Afar):

  • Campaign (8 games): The story of Scythe continues and concludes with an 8-episode campaign. While the campaign includes surprises, unlocks, and persistent elements, it is fully resettable and replayable.
  • Modular (11 modules): Instead of—or after—the campaign, the new modules in The Rise of Fenris can be used in various combinations to cater to player preferences. These modules are compatible with all Scythe expansions, and they include a fully cooperative module that isn’t part of the competitive campaign.

While the exact nature of the episodes and modules will remain a mystery (most of these components are in 5 secret tuckboxes and on 6 punchboards), the components in this expansion include a detailed episodic guidebook, 13 plastic miniatures, 62 wooden tokens, 2 custom dice, 25 tiles,  100+ cardboard tokens, a campaign log, and 1 achievement sheet.

There is also a downloadable sample scenario that we use to share the feeling of an episode at convention and events, but it’s not an actual part of the campaign, nor is it included in the printed expansion.

Scythe fan Martin Cepelik created a version of the campaign log for iPads. Also, if you don’t want to write in your book, you can download and print the campaign scoring guide here.

See here for a more detailed FAQ with spoilers.

Is this a legacy expansion?

No. “Legacy” refers to permanent changes that cannot be undone. The Rise of Fenris can be reset and replayed any number of times.

Does this expansion require other expansions?

Nope. We wouldn’t do that to you.

I opened some of the secret boxes, and I think I’m missing something. What should I do?

First, since you’ve already spoiled some of the content, proceed to open the other tuckboxes. If you still think you’re missing something, please fill out this form.

Am I stuck with the same faction for the entire campaign?

No, you will have several specific opportunities during the campaign to change factions.
