Root was one of the most anticipated releases of 2018, and it duly sold out following the launch. The second print run has arrived and it's now back at Zatu Games! To celebrate, The Honest Meeple has put together an unboxing video - so that you can see all of the components.
The game has been published by Leder Games and features artwork from Kyle Ferrin, the duo combination which made Vast so popular. Vast and Root also share another feature which is rare in popular board games; they're both completely asymmetrical.
In Root, each player controls a faction with completely different rules, abilities and ways to win. There are a few common elements, like a board and a shared points track, but every mechanic with an impact on strategy is unique to one faction or another.
There are four different factions in the game, each battling for supremacy in the woodlands. The four factions are:
- The Marquise de Cat.
- The Eyrie.
- The Woodland Alliance.
- The Vagabond.
Each player in Root will have unique capabilities and a different victory condition, as the players build the story and drive the narrative throughout. This game will keep you hooked for a very long time.
The Honest Meeple takes a look inside the box of Root for his first unboxing video on our YouTube channel. In the video you'll get to see all of the fantastic artwork and high-quality components for Root.
