Our Chief Content Nerd, Drew Dixon, talks with Cole Wherle, designer of Root from Leder Games. We chatted from the show floor of PAX Unplugged 2018 in Philadelphia.
We discuss Cole’s background in weird history games, his inspiration in creating the massively successful asymmetrical strategy game Root, and what drives him to make board games. He discusses his systems-driven approach to game design that is tied to his study of history and his interest in political theory and economics.
