New to Root

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.
