Root is a game of adventure and war where you battle for control of a vast wilderness.

Root represents the next step in asymmetric game 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.  They win by building new buildings and crafts.
The Eyrie musters their hawks to take back the Woods. They must capture  territory 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 presence.
The Vagabond plays all sides of the conflict for their own gain, while hiding a mysterious quest.

In Root, you drive the narrative, and the differences between each role create an unparalleled level of interaction and replayability.
