It is the number of each denomination of power card in the deck. This is the same as the table in the rules on page 22.


No, you would not gain the benefit the same turn you enlist it. Jamey Stegmaier, Scythe designer, answered this question in a thread on boardgamegeek The costs and benefits for the player mat are those that are visible before you take the action, so you would not gain the ongoing recruit bonus from the enlist action until your next enlistment.


According to SUBMERGE: Your character and mechs may move to and from lakes and move from any lake to another (similar to tunnel movement, but with lakes). If a mech moves workers onto a lake or if a character or mech moves resources onto a lake, you may not leave those workers or resources on the ...


You may always look at the power cards in your own hand and see their content and values. The content is only kept secret from other players. Other players only know how many combat cards you have in your hand. From the rules page 7, up in the top right: COMBAT CARDS: Draw the indicated number of combat cards. The number of combat cards you have is ...


The parenthesis disambiguates the phrase before it. "In a row" has its natural meaning, which is further clarified to be "any continuous straight line" (of hexes). A contiguous grouping is not the same thing.

The rules also suggest that, in order to improve game flow, that as a player is taking their bottom row action, the next ...


Moving into an area occupied by a worker, it counts as an attack. From the rules: If you ever attack a player who has your faction’s Alliance token or force their workers off a territory, you must flip over the [alliance] token you have.


It's really simple, actually: The rules say Randomly shuffle the the Faction Mats and Player Mats Do they say "shuffle a number of mats equal to the number of players, starting with the lowest ranked mat"? No, they don't. If they wanted you to do it so, it would have been written there. You bought the game. It's your property. Think it would be better ...
