Find adventure in this marvelous asymmetric game. Root provides limitless replay value as you and your friends explore the unique factions all wanting to rule a fantastic forest kingdom. Play as the Marquise de Cat and dominate the woods, extracting its riches and policing its inhabitants, as the Woodland Alliance, gathering supporters and coordinate revolts against the ruling regime, the Eyrie Dynasties, regaining control of the woods while keeping your squabbling court at bay, or as the Vagabond, seeking fame and fortune as you forge alliances and rivalries with the other players. Each faction has its own play style and paths to victory, providing an immersive game experience you will want to play again and again.

User Ratings & Reviews

  • Rated this game with but 2 plays, but really wanting for more. Might change the score if it's actually not that good after some more play, but it's nowhere soon considering there're 8 factions to combine
  • A surprisingly deep and strategic asymmetric game. Use of many common components and core rules makes it vastly less brain burny than Vast, which was overly asymmetrical and a bit of a heartbreaker for me.
  • Great game. Would probably enjoy it even more a second time playing. I was able to play with the expansion also, and the Lizard Cultists seem like an amazing faction.
  • Initial rating because do not have people to play with and rate the game by experience. Excellent design, assymetric factions. Really enjoyed. The downside is that you need stable group of same people and more plays to enjoy the game.keeper

This is a fun question and it's not easy to answer.  Of course off the bat I want to say #Root because it's my favorite.

But I think I could also make the argument for #A Few Acres of Snow because it's the game that got me into the hobby.  I think overall Root will get the edge just a bit.

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving Everyone.
