ROOT (Leder Games, 2 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, 90-120 minutes; $60)
Root is an impressive game designed by Cole Wehrle whose John Company (featured in the Summer 2018 GA Report) was released by Leder Games in 2018. Readers might recall that Leder Games achieved some recognition for its previous release of Vast: The Crystal Caverns. Vast featured a strong asymmetric design. Root continues this approach to game design. But where Vast had players adventuring through a dungeon, Root takes players to a fantasy fight for dominance in the woodlands.
