SXSW Details, Livestream Tomorrow, and some Shipping News

Posted by Cole Wehrle (Collaborator)

 Good morning everyone! 

As Patrick mentioned yesterday, this weekend he and I will be at SXSW showing off Root: The Underworld Expansion.

If you happened to be in Austin for the show, you can find us in the Tabletop Experience at the Austin Convention Center in Exhibit Hall 2 both today and tomorrow. We don't have a booth, but will instead just be running demos near the Discovery Stage, between aisles 1700 and 1900.

Then, on Sunday, we'll be giving a talk about the creation of Root on the Discovery Stage at 1pm. Sometimes these talks are recorded and made available afterwards. If this happens, we'll be sure to give you all a link.

For those of you not at the show, tomorrow the folks in Saint Paul will be doing a livestream of a game featuring the Great Underground Duchy and the Exiles and Partisans deck. They be posting a link to that stream when it goes live tomorrow.  Hopefully we'll see you then!

Finally, we wanted to let everyone know that we are currently in talks to expand our shipping network, hopefully to include countries like Russia and Brazil. As soon as we have a solution on that front we will be sure to update everyone. If you'd like to see another country added to the shipping cost list, please send us an email at

      Get the faction bags from board game geek as an add-on!

      Absolutely Jorge!! This is another thing that could be funded here and have you bounce from map to map with different factions in different standings as you carried forward. The factions leading into the next map is all dependent on who won the last round/which "major" faction was in the best position at the end.

      You know what is next for root expansion-wise right? A LEGACY CAMPAIGN! with a story that is deserving of all the beautiful art and backstory of all the factions! I cannot even start to imagine all the potential that this could have in a game like this.

      @David In the previous update...

      "A few people have noted the lack of stretch goals. We have decided to forgo them this campaign and offer the free things up front. This keeps the design manageable and allows us to deliver a quality product to you. That being said as the whim strikes us we reserve the right to add stretch goals."

      Any thoughts on stretch goals? Or will this KS not have them?

      Yes! I hope you can find a solution for Brazil. We miss so may great Kickstarters because of our horrible customs agency.

      Thanks for looking after your brazilian supporters. That means a lot.
