So far Root is the only largely assymetric game that I've played and have really enjoyed it.

Have you not tried vast?

Not yet. I've heard mixed reviews. Is it worth getting?

I dont know if it is worth getting per say. I would try it first. My favorite character is the cave and I think it is OP because I have won every time as the cave. Personally I am not a fan of any of the other characters. However there is an expansion with a couple new characters I would love to try. Especially the Ghost. Experiences may vary so I would definitely say try before you buy, but definitely try.

Im not sure how Asymetric you would call it, (it largly depends on your alien race) but Cosmic Encounters is just so beautifully imballanced...

also Scythe handles Asymetry in a unique and fun way!

(also Root... but im still waiting to play... ugh...)

Scythe is fun!! I wish I had more people to play Root with. I am debating selling it :(

I have heard that Cosmic encounter is a good Asymmetric game.  I should check it out!  Thanks!
