Games discussed this month include:

ARCHITECTS OF THE WEST KINGDOM
In Architects of the West Kingdom, set at the end of the Carolingian Empire, players earn points by constructing various buildings and advancing work on the Archbishop's cathedral. To accomplish this, players may need to make some ethically-questionable decisions. Performing a few underhanded deals may be okay, but push it too far and cataclysmic retribution will be incurred.

TERRAFORMING MARS
In Terraforming Mars, players run colossal corporations competing to transforming the Martian landscape into a new world capable of providing humanity with a new planet on which to shovel snow until their hands freeze and cramp into little frostbitten fists.

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. 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!

WINGSPAN
Taking flight from spot thirteen to land at number one this month is Wingspan by Stonemaier Games. Wingspan is a competitive, medium-weight, card-driven, engine-building board game in which players are bird watchers, ornithologists, researchers and collectors - all seeking to discover and attract the best birds to their network of wildlife preserves. Demonstrating that even in the world of tabletop games, even environmental conservation is rife with competition. The game includes 170 unique cards featuring fabulous feathered illustrations, custom dice and a tailor-made Game Trayz insert, 75 egg miniatures, a birdfeeder dice tower, and other components designed with an avian touch. Wingspan will be soaring into retailers on March 8th. In the meantime, if you wet your beak, you can try out a digital version of the game that’s available right now on the Tabletopia online platform

Never got to play Dune, but have heard great stuff about it. Super interested as I just never could really get excited for the Rex version. Looking forward to seeing how it looks when it is released. GF9 has an amazing track record so here's hoping for just another great title added to the repertoire.
