A new expansion is coming for Leder Games' Root: A Woodland Game of Might and Right. It's called The Underworld and it'll bring in two new factions to the game (the Crows and the Moles), as well as two unique maps, each with their own special rules. The Kickstarter campaign for the expansion will start in one month's time.
From the announcement:
Introducing Root: The Underworld, a new expansion pack for Root: A Woodland Game of Might and Right. This pack provides two new asymmetric factions to mix and match with current Root content for new player dynamics, as well as two new maps with new map-specific rules.
Root: Underworld is not yet available and will launch on Kickstarter on March 14, 2019.
Two new factions:
The Crows, “The Corvid Conspiracy” – Espionage masters, they will have a smaller presence on the board. They score points by manipulating the other player’s hands.
The Moles, “The Great Underground Duchy” – An ancient kingdom ascending to the surface. The Moles like the Cats, Birds, and Lizards will be about putting large amounts of Warriors on the map, while controlling clearings.
