Planet Apocalypse, Plus Everdell and Root are Back!

Everdell

Everdell

Within the charming valley of Everdell, beneath the boughs of towering trees, among meandering streams and mossy hollows, a civilization of forest critters is thriving and expanding. From Everfrost to Bellsong, many a year have come and gone, but the time has come for new territories to be settled and new cities established. You will be the leader of a group of critters intent on just such a task. There are buildings to construct, lively characters to meet, events to host—you have a busy year ahead of yourself. Will the sun shine brightest on your city before the winter moon rises?

Everdell is a game of dynamic tableau building and worker placement.

On their turn a player can take one of three actions:

a) Place a Worker: Each player has a collection of Worker pieces. These are placed on the board locations, events, and on Destination cards. Workers perform various actions to further the development of a player’s tableau: gathering resources, drawing cards, and taking other special actions.

b) Play a Card: Each player is building and populating a city; a tableau of up to 15 Construction and Critter cards. There are five types of cards: Travelers, Production, Destination, Governance, and Prosperity. Cards generate resources (twigs, resin, pebbles, and berries), grant abilities, and ultimately score points. The interactions of the cards reveal numerous strategies and a near infinite variety of working cities.

c) Prepare for the next Season: Workers are returned to the players supply and new workers are added. The game is played from Winter through to the onset of the following winter, at which point the player with the city with the most points wins.

Everdell: Pearlbrook

Everdell: Pearlbrook Expansion

Explore a new underwater society in Pearlbrook, the first expansion for Everdell!

Pearlbrook introduces a new side board, the river board, where you’ll send your frog ambassador to gather a new resource: pearls. You’ll also encounter new aquatic critters and constructions! Collect enough pearls and you can construct fabulous wonders and adornments, to make your city the pride of Everdell!

 

Root

Root

Root is a game of adventure and war in which 2 to 4 (1 to 6 with the ‘Riverfolk’ expansion) players battle for control of a vast wilderness.

The nefarious Marquise de Cat has seized the great woodland, intent on harvesting its riches. Under her rule, the many creatures of the forest have banded together. This Alliance will seek to strengthen its resources and subvert the rule of Cats. In this effort, the Alliance may enlist the help of the wandering Vagabonds who are able to move through the more dangerous woodland paths. Though some may sympathize with the Alliance’s hopes and dreams, these wanderers are old enough to remember the great birds of prey who once controlled the woods.

Meanwhile, at the edge of the region, the proud, squabbling Eyrie have found a new commander who they hope will lead their faction to resume their ancient birthright. The stage is set for a contest that will decide the fate of the great woodland. It is up to the players to decide which group will ultimately take root.

Root represents the next step in our development of asymmetric design. Like Vast: The Crystal Caverns, each player in Root has unique capabilities and a different victory condition. Now, with the aid of gorgeous, multi-use cards, a truly asymmetric design has never been more accessible.

The Cats play a game of engine building and logistics while attempting to police the vast wilderness. By collecting Wood they are able to produce workshops, lumber mills, and barracks. They win by building new buildings and crafts.

The Eyrie musters their hawks to take back the Woods. They must capture as much territory as possible and build roosts before they collapse back into squabbling.

The Alliance hides in the shadows, recruiting forces and hatching conspiracies. They begin slowly and build towards a dramatic late-game presence–but only if they can manage to keep the other players in check.

Meanwhile, the Vagabond plays all sides of the conflict for their own gain, while hiding a mysterious quest. Explore the board, fight other factions, and work towards achieving your hidden goal.

In Root, players drive the narrative, and the differences between each role create an unparalleled level of interaction and replayability. Leder Games invites you and your family to explore the fantastic world of Root!

Planet Apocalypse

Planet Apocalypse Core Game

Planet Apocalypse is an exciting cooperative game for 1-5 players. You are post-apocalypse heroes confronting the hordes of hell! Every game is different as you battle demons from the circles of hell, and in the end, strive to take down their demon lord!

The game has multiple mechanics that change the game every time you play. Every hero has a tech tree that evolves over the course of the battle. Demons change powers based on their legion. Each terrifying demon lord changes the battle field, forcing players to work together to defeat the ever encroaching beast.

Eventually the heroes must fight their greatest adversary, the demon lord itself. Each entrance into the lord’s space starts a special battle “Hell-time” sequence. During this, the heroes will have to pool resources and to inflict as much damage as possible before retreating to regroup and reengage, eventually resulting in an epic climatic battle against the leader of the infernal forces.

Feel the pressure of the invasion as the demons steadily approach the last bastion of humanity. Randomly generate demonic hordes as you close the distance between yourself and their lord by exploring the fog of war. Each time the lord advances more powerful demonic units spawn, countered only by increasing each hero’s tech tree.
