This week we're proud to present our review of Root, which is surely the board game industry's new beau. A grand, inventive game of cat and mouse, as well fox and bird, and - should you buy the Riverfolk expansion - beaver and lizard.
As Quinns says in the review, everybody involved in this production needs to take a bow. But should you buy it? Click play and find out...
Are you a sharp enough architect to assemble three streets, speckle them with swimming pools, dab them with parkland and negotiate with real estate agents and contractors? You're probably not, no. But you'll have a great time trying.
But wait! There's more! Paul's also spent some time with the Dark Mountain and Valhalla expansions. He's been high, and he's been low. And we'll tell you what else- he's had a very good time.

Anybody? No? What if we were to tell you that Arkwright turns the manufacturing of bread, forks and lamps into a bruising war. What if we were to say that this game puts the very machinery of the industrial revolution in your hands, and allows you to grind your friends in its very cogs.
Would you want to play then?
But what will Matt and Quinns make of it? For one thing, this wouldn't be the first time that Lord of the Rings was accused of being too long.
Click play, and let their opinions seep into your very bones.
