Eyrie Meeple

My love of Root (a game of woodland might and right) continues to grow and now I’m working my way through all the factions to create a collection of giant meeples! The Eyrie gets to take center stage this time! Same process, different pictures. This meeple is made entirely of wood and holds to the 8-inch standard that I’ve apparently set for myself. I’m not going to lie, the Eyrie meeple was one of the easier meeples to make as it didn’t have too many sharp turns or narrow spaces. Continue Reading →

Root – A Deck Comparison

I recently got a request to do a comparison between the two decks from Root: A game of Woodland Might and Right by Leder Games. The Standard Deck comes with the base game while the Exiles and Partisan deck is available as an expansion for the game. Since each deck is balanced in their own way, there are some big similarities between the decks but there was also some surprising differences. And there were somethings that I learned even though I'm pretty sure I inherently knew them, but I never did the math before. So, without further ado, let’s drive in! Continue Reading →

With a new drafting systems for tournaments coming out in the latest expansion, I thought now would be a good time to look at the overall statistics for the tournaments played thus far.

Root: Marquise de Cat Meeple

So, if it's not apparent by now, I really enjoy the Game Root from Leder Games. So, I decided I wanted to make a large meeple. And if you go big, why not go really big? So I ended up making a 8 inch tall meeple out of solid wood. I will admit, I am very luck to have a cricut Maker so I had it print out the cat meeple pattern that I wanted to use. I printed onto a sticker sheet so this way I could stick the outline where I needed it. Continue Reading →

Root: A Game of Woodland Might and Right

The Cats now rule the forest and there is nothing you can do. Or is there? Will the overthrown Eyrie Dynasty reclaim control of the forest or will the Woodland Alliance rally the people and take control? Root is a war game with asymmetric factions vying for control of the forest. Currently, there are eight unique factions: the Marquise de Cats, the Eyrie Dynasty, the Woodland Alliance, the Vagabond, the Riverfolk Company, the Lizard Cult, the Underground Duchy, and the Corvid Conspiracy. Each faction has its own special mechanics and focus. Continue Reading →
