I like Root. It was my favorite game last year. And I am excited about the upcoming expansion as I also threw more money at it to get the fancy mat boards. But this new news about Root going digital is just very exciting.
3D elements on the board with cel-art animation style for the cute creatures is just what I need. Dire Wolf Digital is making it and they say it is coming soon, later this year. Will it be good? Well Dire Wolf Digital has made Raiders of the North Sea digital game as well as Pokemon Online. I can’t imagine being handed those and this license and not making a quality product would be a thing.
Here’s hoping it comes to the Nintendo Switch like Raiders has and Eight Minute Empire is about to do!
Another year, another awards thingy. Might as well keep the traditional alive cause everyone does love lists! It definitely has been an interesting year for gaming this year. Once again I am only looking at games I have played in 2018. Some of these games might’ve not come out last year but I will try to stick to the latest games if I can help it!
Now to the games! Continue reading NTBG Awards of 2018

Let’s get to the soil of this!

PAX Unplugged is completed and what a time it was! While I was there I caught up with a couple game companies to talk about their games. I was able to record interviews with Baba Geek Games, Osprey Games, Leder Games, and Rule & Make.

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. It is reminiscent of VAST (it even has the same artist) but you play as cute furry creatures. Four animal factions that play differently; whether you want to build up your empire, try to steal other territory, be sneaky with late game surprises, or a combination of the three. Root: A Game of Woodland Might and Right seems like a narrowed down scope of what VAST was and that could be for the better.
It is up on Kickstarter and will be at Leder Games’ booth (1248) at PAX Unplugged. This is definitely a game I will be checking out at the convention. Hit the jump for the press release and link to Kickstarter…
