Quick, what has adorable forest creatures locked into an epic struggle for control of the woods? No, it’s not Watership Down, it’s Root! The latest from Leder Games, Root pits 2-4 players (or 1-6, with the expansion) against each other in a race for 30 victory points. The trick here is that each faction has a wildly different approach. Playing the Eyrie Dynasties? Better balance your bloated bureacracy lest you fall into turmoil. What about the Woodland Alliance? You’ll have to be sneay and opportunistic to make the most of your few warriors. It’s a truly interesting game with some impressive balancing of the playable factions. Listen to the latest episode for our full review!

We haven’t actually been playing much lately, so we start things off with an in-depth discussion of some of our latest experiences in Gloomhaven. There are a few spoilers, but for the most part, we talk mechanics and difficulty curves.
