The Ironclad Edition of Expeditions features 5 large metal mechs (instead of plastic miniatures) and silicon base snaps (instead of plastic), as well as an individually numbered box with foil lettering. All other components and the gameplay elements are exactly the same as the standard version of Expeditions.
Neither version of Expeditions includes metal coins, but they are compatible with Scythe metal coins.
The standalone sequel to Scythe sends players on a new adventure into Siberia, where a massive meteorite crashed near the Tunguska River, awakening ancient corruption. An expedition led by Dr. Tarkovsky ventures into the taiga to learn about the meteorite and its impact on the land. Itching for adventure, heroes from the war privately fund their own expeditions to Siberia, hoping to find artifacts, overcome challenges, and ultimately achieve glory.
Expeditions is a competitive, card-driven, engine-building game of exploration. It is designed to evoke similar feelings to Scythe even though the mechanisms are different: Play cards to gain power, guile, and unique worker abilities; move your mech to mysterious locations and gain cards found among the tiles; use workers, items, meteorites, and quests to enhance your mech; and use power and guile to vanquish corruption.
Expeditions includes 5 large mech miniatures (>50mm) and mech mats, 20 location tiles, over 100 uniquely illustrated cards (63x88mm), 50 worker meeples, a bag filled with 36 silkscreen printed corruption tiles, a robust Automa solo mode, and much more. The box is 390x321x84mm, and the game takes up around 99x90cm on the table (3 feet squared).
The multiplayer and Automa rulebooks are available here.
Automa (solo mode) components:
- 14 decision cards
- 5 progress cards
- 1 glory card
- 1 player aid card
- 1 rulebook
