Independent Reviews of the Root Board Game:

Board Game Quest

"The rulebook and player aids in Root go a long way in making the game incredibly accessible. The factions have all been interesting and fun to play while feeling different enough to keep the game feeling fresh even after multiple plays in a relatively short time span."

The Meeple Street

"I put off learning Root because I heard it was difficult to teach and almost too complex for it’s own good. [...] It has quickly become one of my favorite games, even so much as to be one of my top five favorite games I have played. I love the level of asymmetry between the different factions. Each faction plays very differently, and it keeps me coming back to develop my skills in each faction."

What You Might Like About the Root Board Game:

  • Each faction is both fun and with their own unique character
  • Rules overhead is way less than you’d expect considering the gameplay is different for all players.
  • The characters in it are very cute.

What You Might Not Like About the Root Board Game:

  • It is designed to be very mean - but that is the point! 
  • There is a learning curve and if more experienced players are joining in the fun it can be difficult for newer players to win while learning during their first game

 

What is Root?

The nefarious Marquise de Cat has seized the great woodland, intent on harvesting its riches. Under her rule, the many creatures of the forest have banded together. This Alliance will seek to strengthen its resources and subvert the rule of Cats. In this effort, the Alliance may enlist the help of the wandering Vagabonds who are able to move through the more dangerous woodland paths. Though some may sympathize with the Alliance’s hopes and dreams, these wanderers are old enough to remember the great birds of prey who once controlled the woods.

 

Meanwhile, at the edge of the region, the proud, squabbling Eyrie have found a new commander who they hope will lead their faction to resume their ancient birthright. The stage is set for a contest that will decide the fate of the great woodland. It is up to the players to decide which group will ultimately take root.

 

Root represents the next step in our development of asymmetric design. Like Vast: The Crystal Caverns, each player in Root has unique capabilities and a different victory condition. Now, with the aid of gorgeous, multi-use cards, a truly asymmetric design has never been more accessible.

 

The Cats play a game of engine building and logistics while attempting to police the vast wilderness. By collecting Wood they are able to produce workshops, lumber mills, and barracks. They win by building new buildings and crafts.

 

The Eyrie musters their hawks to take back the Woods. They must capture as much territory as possible and build roosts before they collapse back into squabbling.

 

The Alliance hides in the shadows, recruiting forces and hatching conspiracies. They begin slowly and build towards a dramatic late-game presence--but only if they can manage to keep the other players in check.

 

Meanwhile, the Vagabond plays all sides of the conflict for their own gain, while hiding a mysterious quest. Explore the board, fight other factions, and work towards achieving your hidden goal.

 

In Root, players drive the narrative, and the differences between each role create an unparalleled level of interaction and replayability. Leder Games invites you and your family to explore the fantastic world of Root!

Since launch we have expanded to cover puzzles and games for all ages, and we are committed to maintaining a perfect service that centres on you: our customers!

 

Our commitment to new artists

We want the toys and games ecosystem to thrive and the only way we can do that is by ensuring new talent gets a leg up and everyone gets a chance to succeed. We look for the most entertaining toys and games with replayability, thought-provoking play, and unlimited fun for all ages.

 

If we like something and we think it will entertain our customers, we love adding it to our inventory. Which is why our inbox is always open to new and interesting ideas.

Top tip: Try and grab our attention – what is it about your new toy/board game/idea that will capture the imagination of customers?

 

Sustainability

As a business we want to do business the right way. Our customers can always buy from us in the comfort we maintain the highest ethical standards and protect our planet from waste and emissions. We therefore only stock from companies committed to reducing the amount of plastic in their packaging and supply chain and use only sustainable, recyclable packaging for deliveries.

 

Additionally, we believe customers should feel comfortable the shops they buy from treat their staff and their suppliers well. We are committed to paying – at a minimum - a living wage to all employees, moreover, we will not use delivery companies that fail to ensure guaranteed wages and pensions for their employees.

 

As a result of our commitment and following review of all potential suppliers, all of our deliveries for 2020 are to be distributed by Royal Mail.
