Had a good game of Scythe with JP and my son on TTS. My Son did a great job of learning the rules, and teaching JP and myself the game (this was my son's first time really playing as well). Of course he wonl, with JP coming in 2nd and me pulling up the rear (But I was the 'power' lord!).

Does TTS run on Macs?

I just checked STEAM and it does indeed have a mac version.

That's a premium DLC, paid for, and those are usually designed very well. This is one of the best paid modules I've seen. It's also been out for a long time, one of the first! (Feb 26, 2016) I think there may have been an update later to add the next two factions, but it didn't change the look of the game so far as I can tell.

The digital version is quite good, too, and of course keeps track of all the rules and allows AI players. https://store.steampowered.com/app/286160/Tabletop_Simulator/?snr=1_7_15__13

Note: the digital version only comes standard with the original four factions. The fifth and sixth require paying for one DLC. However the game is often part of sales. Also, I suspect that there's a mobile version for cross-platform play though I haven't verified yet, and those are usually less expensive. As it is, full price including DLC is $30.
