Finally! We know it's been a while. A LONG while.
Due to a death in the family, moving to a new home, and work, work, work, we just haven't had time to work on Going Analog. But enough excuses. Here is our third episode where we look at the 2016 hit Scythe, a 4X-style board game with mechs. (Apologies for the audio problems during the main review section. We didn't set up the microphones correctly.)
Happy International Tabletop Day, by the way!
Thank you so much for watching. :) If you like what you see, please share and subscribe and all that.

Like Risk except good. Mix different races and powers to create unique armies for every match.
Your dice are spaceships. Roll 'em and place 'em to gather resources, get alien tech, and build colonies.
