About this game

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.

Update - buggy issues with multiplayer are resolved. Great implementation of an amazing game. Single player and GUI is good, but you can never finish a multiplayer game since it crashes halfway through. Very frustrating. If you don't care about multiplayer, it's a good game. Otherwise, avoid.

Edit2: It seems like the game is actually getting buggier over time... Edit: Okay, this game is great, but needs some basic updates to meet the basic standards of boardgame arena. 1) when the game ends, it cuts straight to the win screen so you can't see the winning play or even the board. 2) the game needs a fast-forward button. Love this game. I've bought it here and on Steam. Can't recommend enough.

Fun game but the app could use some major improvements. The biggest problem is the app insists on re-animating the round every time you launch it. Combine with the fact that the app seems to lose connection anytime I switch screens, I'm often stuck watching the round several times before I am able to complete my turn. Animating the turn should be optional, and imo default off. Another issue I have is the game end being podiums with no way to see what happened/ the game map for the final round
