I have some exciting news. Rootlands has been selected as one of Boston Fig’s Finalists in the Table Top Game Showcase. This will be my first opportunity to share the game with the public and see what people think of it.
The process of applying to the festival’s Tabletop Game showcase has been very helpful in clarifying the game. The application went through two stages: first sending in the rules and then the game itself. Each time I was given some very helpful feedback on the game. In the last stage the game was blind tested (a first for the game) and the judges rated it and supplied comments. Overall the game received positive ratings, but the judges also had some good criticism, which I’ve been working on incorporating into the game.
