Root Game: Clockwork Expansion 2
The Clockwork Expansion 2 is a standalone expansion that lets you square off against four automated factions. Add one to round out a game with few players, or team up in cooperative play!
Each bot has four difficulty levels and four trait cards, giving them special powers and strategic quirks. Also included is a new Better Bot trait card for each faction from the first Clockwork Expansion.
This is an expansion. It requires the Root board game as well as one or both of The Riverfolk Expansion and The Underworld Expansion.
In this adorable asymmetrical strategy game, players take control of four woodland factions vying for control of a forest. Players share the same basic abilities – moving characters around the board, gathering resources, collecting new cards and buildings, and fighting opponents’ armies. But each faction plays a little differently, and the key to victory is focusing on your chosen faction’s unique abilities and goals.
The Marquise de Cat and his band of tyrants have seized the woods, intent on harvesting wood and developing the land. The upstart Woodland Alliance has risen to challenge them – they covertly instill sympathy in those affected by the Marquis’ rule, and foment uprisings to combat the other players. Meanwhile, the great birds of Eyrie have installed a charismatic leader intent on reclaiming their treetop throne. If they can assemble an avian army and capture the most territory, they may have a shot at driving out the others. All the while, Vagabonds roam the forest, partnering with some, and sabotaging others in order to fulfill a hidden quest. A unique game for 2-4 players, that takes between 60-90 minutes to play.
