18 | Root First Impressions (Toast Warriors)

If you’ve been within 10 miles of any board game media over the past several months, you have undoubtedly heard of Root, a game of war and direct conflict disguised by the most adorable meeples you’ve ever seen. Seriously – we never thought, in 2018, we could be wow’d by meeples, but these somehow are the best meeples ever. They’re adorable, chunky, and surprisingly expressive, and yet… these are not cats and birds and mice. No! As the Law of Root (rulebook) clearly states, these meeples are WARRIORS! There’s a lot to unpack in Root, and we have only begun to scratch the surface, but in this episode we give first impressions after our first few plays.

Also, we discuss a recent (complete!) playthrough of 1889!
