Leder Games Presents… Root: A Game of Woodland Might and Right

PAX Unplugged is mere weeks away and there will be a lot of games there. One of which appeared in my inbox today and has me intrigued.

“Tournament” Movie Screening

Board games haven’t really been represented in movies, at least usually not in a positive light. Well here comes an independent movie for the better. “Tournament” is about a group of unlikely friends who gather for an epic trading card game only to have a beautiful outsider turn everything upside down. This comedy is coming to a DC theater for one night, October 12th at 7:30 PM
