Play the digital adaptation of the beloved tabletop board game. Root is a game of adventure and war where 2 to 4 players battle for control of a vast wilderness.

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.

Faithful Adaptation of a Great Game

I loved the board game version of this and the digital version is a purfect recreation of the core game using the updated and revised rules and boards as published in the root update kit.

No lags, no crashes as of yet and it seems to work perfectly after playing at least a few games with each of the core 4 factions.

Which is also the problem.. as other reviewers have said, river and mountain folk expansions are NOT here... yet, and they turn this great game into a truly amazing one; my favourite factions being the Underground Duchy and the Riverfolk Company.

Personally I can’t wait to see these in a future update and I really hope they make it into this digital edition along with the winter, lake and mountain boards, and the updated card deck, which adds more variety and depth to the game.

The good side is this initial offering is a great start! and you can finally beef up the number of players to have decent four player games with AI that isn’t a mindless automotom; like the clockwork cats...

See you in the woodlands my friends...

The best digital board game there is! Root is now one of my all time favourite games, I hadn’t even played it before buying the digital edition! This is a masterful recreation of the game. The tutorials make the game a joy to learn and the challenges are a great way to build on that understanding. The digital edition makes this game so much more approachable and easy to pick up and play. Playing the AI is surprisingly enjoyable. And it has the option for pass and play! It also supports online cross play! I own this on multiple platforms and the DLC and progress is shared across them. I love the Riverfolk expansion and can’t wait for more to be added. The art, animation, and soundtrack are all fantastic! I have probably played near 100 hours offline and not experienced any issues so the bug fixes are working. Although I haven’t played online yet so can’t speak about that. Thank you Direwolf Digital and Leder Games ❤️

Great digital version

Lovingly crafted digital version of Root.
Decent tutorials but definitely will help if you have played the board game beforehand.
Big miss not including expansion factions, hoping if the game does well we might get a digital expansion as missing a major amount of variety as is.
AI is really tough and smart so can get lots of practice in without having to going online. Recommended
