Roots of Mali
is on Kickstarter




Kickstarter-Link: http://bit.ly/rom_kickstarter

Enter a fascinating fantasy world created by SunCoreGames, where mystical tribes are torn apart by internal strife. Fierce power struggles and cunning strategies lead to epic confrontations deciding over total supremacy in the Warring Lands.

Roots of Mali – The Game
Roots of Mali is a remarkable challenge for strategists. A portable, tournament-ready combat and positioning game that is easy to learn and has great replayability. Players compete against each other with characters represented by dice – zero luck involved!

One World – Many Tribes
Roots of Mali is a standalone game and 100% compatible with its predecessor Light of Dragons. Tribes from both games can be combined for new challenges and even greater replayability. Each tribe consists of 6 di erent creatures with unique abilities and distinct power levels. Tribes from both editions can easily be distinguished by the color of their representative dice.

The Confrontation – How to Play
By vanquishing an opposing creature you gain Victory Points equal to the creature‘s power level. The rst player to collect 10 Victory Points wins. This is achieved by tactically moving creatures and exercising their special powers to outwit your opponent, eliminating his character dice from the board, the Warring Lands.

Just out of curiosity, did anyone else wonder if this was a game about the African slave trade? I saw the title... Mali, a country in West Africa. Roots, a well know story about an African man captured and forced into slavery. Fortunately, this game seems to have nothing to do with the aforementioned, but I do wonder if the authors gave any thought to the potential associations of their name.

I haven't had that association. Roots literally refers to the roots of a tree, the tree that is depicted on the box and that is the strongest creature int he game, the Mali. Nothing but positivity here ;-) The team is aware of the existence of the country Mali and the book.
