The Root base game is a stand-alone experience that plays 2-4 players. With it, you’ll be able to learn the fundamental concepts around Root and play different factions that hit all varieties of asymmetric complexity: low, moderate, and high. We highly recommend starting with the Root base game first, and expanding on your game after your first play.

Refer to the chart below to find out how you can expand on your experience and discover different ways to enjoy Root!

Hireling Packs

The hireling system is a gameplay option that can be used at any player count and faction mix. Hirelings are perfect for folks wanting the experience of Root as a two-player contest or who want to inject their multiplayer games with even more combos and color from the game’s wider world.

Expand

The hirelings lend their services to the faction in the lead, attracted to promises of fame and glory, but grow dissatisfied as the conflict drags on and eventually change allegiance to a new patron

Discover

Discover unique strategies and make the woodland wilder by adding hirelings. Best with fewer players, great with more!
