Fight, negotiate, and harness powerful new technologies as prominent political factions, scientists, industrialists, and folk heroes involved in the power struggles of Eastern Europa. At the center of the chaos is the mysterious Factory. Originally constructed by Nikolai Tesla, the Factory produced wondrous technologies utilized by the nations of Eastern Europa to destroy each other during the Great War. Although now the Great War is over, the power struggles are just beginning.

Sickle is a fan-made megagame set in the 1920+ Universe created by Jakub Różalski and is home to the award-winning board game Scythe by Stonemaier Games. We thank Stonemaier Games for the encouragement of fan-made projects, including this one!

You’d love Sickle if:

  • You love exploring interesting alternate history settings
  • You like settings driven by specific technologies like Fallout or Crimson Skies
  • You love the lore of board game Scythe and the broader 1920+ art universe
  • You like games with tonal limits but freeform gameplay, like modern matrix games
  • You love forcing your frenemy to collaborate with you in order to accomplish a common goal

MEGAGAMES FAQ

Q: Do I need a SHUX ticket to play in a Megagame?
A: You do! We will be running these games from within the SHUX enclave.

 

Q: What’s a Megagame like?
A: Check out Shut Up & Sit Down’s very own video!

 

Q: Can I be on a team with my friends?
A: Of course! We prioritize keeping friends together, above all else. We’ll be reaching out via email to all players to help assign teams and roles; check your inbox and let us know who you’d like to play with!

 

Q: Do I need a full team in order to sign up?
A: Not at all – we take groups of all sizes, including solo players. We’ll make sure everyone is matched up with a team, and put you in touch with your teammates a week before the game starts!

 

Q: What do I need to bring?
A: You don’t need to bring anything, but many players enjoy dressing for their role. We may even give out bonuses to teams that are particularly well-coordinated. (Shhhh, don’t tell anyone I told you!)

 

Q: Do I have to be there the whole time?
A: Yes. The epic scale of a Megagame is part of what makes it such a unique and memorable experience. This one takes less time in the evening though, so maybe a better fit for some!
