My Little Scythe board game review

Thanks for checking out our curated review round-up of My Little Scythe. We’ve pulled together reviews and walkthroughs that resonated with us from amazing gamers and creators. Our favorite board games create an immersive experience and have great table presence. Will this game be your family’s next favourite game too? Let's find out!

Basics about the game - My Little Scythe is great for family gaming with a broad player count ranging between 1 to 6 players. While the game’s recommended age is 8+, younger players (6 or 7) can still get into the game with a little help from parents. The main objective of My Little Scythe is to earn 4 trophies from 8 possible categories. Players earn these trophies for completing certain actions or events through the gameplay such as perform quests, execute magic spells, and send gems and apples to the supernatural Castle Everfree.

Tahsin Shamma from BoardGameQuest has an in-depth description of what the gameplay is like and how it works. Shamma describes his My Little Scythe experience with gameplay imagery and commentary that backs his reasoning explaining why the game really brings enjoyment to the entire family! A well done and exquisitely designed theme, refreshingly simplistic, and a game that works well with a family gamer mom or dad. Each choice is a difference maker as players decide whether to move toward certain resources. It’s good to be strategic every move. If you’re a Scythe fan and want to bring the experience to your kids, Shamma says My Little Scythe is the answer.
