My Little Scythe board game

My Little Scythe is a competitive, family-friendly game in which each player controls 2 animal miniatures embarking upon an adventure in the Kingdom of Pomme.

In an effort to be the first to earn 4 trophies from 8 possible categories, players take turns choosing to Move, Seek, or Make. These actions will allow players to increase their friendship and pies, power up their actions using upgrade tiles, complete quests, learn magic spells, discover precious resources through an innovative dice mechanism, deliver gems and apples to Castle Everfree, and perhaps even engage in a pie fight.

Some of My Little Scythe’s mechanisms are inspired by the bestselling game, Scythe. It caught the eye of Stonemaier Games as a fan-created print-and-play game in 2017 (it went on to win the BoardGameGeek 2017 award for best print-and-play game).

  • Great components, great art, fun gameplay. Great for the entire family.
  • This game is perfect for introducing kids to the heavier side of board gaming. It is going to create a foundation of gaming with my children and allow them to understand more difficult concepts/rules in games as we get older. It also doesn't take too long to play which allows them to stay focused on the game and not start drifting off. If you have kids you want to get into gaming, pick this game up.
  • Good for kids. Meh for me.
  • kid-friendly

Glad to know#My Little Scythe is actually good! I saw it at my FLGS not too long ago and joked with my friend who introduced me to Scythe that it would be on his baby shower registry lol

I made a post a few weeks back explaining my two criteria for ratings and I definitely favor the first criteria (does the game do/offer what it says it's going to) over my second (is this a game I'd prefer to play).

For me the one that stands out that I rank at a 9 or 10 (or 4.5-5 on BGA) is #My Little Scythe.  Now if I were to play this game as an adult only game, yeah it'd drop way down, but I don't.  If I want the #Scythe experience in an adult game night, well, I'll play Scythe.

But for introducing my young family to gaming, and further more to heavy gaming #My Little Scythe is in my opinion the perfect game to develop a deep appreciation for the hobby at their play level.  It offers a nice light version of Scythe with awesome art and a fun theme.  Right now it is too low (although now I'm going to go rate and review it to bring it up).

Spot It! might just be picture matching, but it's mighty fun.

Ticket To Ride First Journey is a great ease into more advanced games, but it's still making decisions and set collection.

My Little Scythe is probably too advanced, but it's a good one to keep in mind. Distills Scythe down to the core, but has nice themes like friendship helping each other out.

My oldest is 7, then it's 3.5, 2, and 2 months (so some of them have a ways to go).  The games we currently play together are (Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-KarMy Little ScytheSushi Go!Pandemic: IberiaBargain Quest, and a modified version of Star Wars Imperial Assault) . I sometimes start with modified rules or fewer rules and introduce more later.  For instance on Sushi Go! I skipped some of the cards and added a new type of card with each play.
