General Help

How do I contact you?

Please use the contact form or directly mail We are happy to help and Caryl is way better at it than I am.

I emailed you (3 days/4 hours/several minutes ago), I’m going to contact you another way.

There are only 1.5 of us working customer service at Leder Games. One of those people is Patrick Leder who is also working on delivering the products. By contacting me another way you are slowing down the proper path to responding and creating an exception we have to deal with. Please don’t do that and be patient.


When is the Kickstarter fulfilling?

Assuming nothing goes wrong around these times:

US – Should be fulfilled. Please contact support if you haven’t received yours.

Canada – Third week of August.

Asia – Mailed the second week of August.

Australia/New Zealand – Should be fulfilled. Please contact support if you haven’t received yours.

ED/Rest of World – They are arriving on August 6th. They will start then.

How do I get the Kickstarter Exclusives?

Everything from the Kickstarter is included in the Root expansion, Root: The Riverfolk, except the double sided board. The double sided board is in the core set. Not many Root: The Riverfolk were made, but we will be ordering a reprint soon. When we reprint the expansion we will probably cut the number of card holders down to 1. This won’t impact game play and they were very expensive to make.

I missed the Kickstarter and the pre-order. What should I do?

Root will be heading into distribution in September. We only have US and Canada available right now as we aren’t certain of how many units we will have left at our other depots. When fulfillment is done in those regions we will add pre-orders for those regions.

I missed the Kickstarter? Is there a late pledge?

You can go to here on backerkit and pledge as if you were a backer. You will not miss a thing there is nothing exclusive in the Kickstarter. This is your last chance to get the expansion for free.

What is the difference between the first printing? What’s the second printing like?

We only printed one version of the game. The second (and third printing) have some rule clarifications and the first printing had a cool black sleeve for Kickstarter backers.  The content is the same otherwise. We are not currently shipping first editions. If you find a game in a store it is very likely second or third printing. First printing of the games went to backers and were sold directly at Gen Con.

You have a second (or third) printing if there are reviewer endorsements on the back or if your treasure meeples are not yellow. Some of the rules were simplified and more examples will put into the rules.
