Root Test in Series Convergence Examples | How to Tell If a Series Converges or Diverges? - Video & Lesson Transcript | Study.com

Well, there's a test you can run. The root test is a simple test that tests for absolute convergence of ...

SU&SD review Oath - 2021's Most Exciting Boardgame
I’ve played it 3 times so far, which is not a lot, but after one play of Root and PP2e both me and my group clicked and saw what the games had to offer if we got good at them. Oath has not done this yet.

I have the physical game with all expansions and love it. While no boardgame (in my experience) gets better with a digital remake, I think Root is so complex and has so much to keep track of, that only by playing this one did I realise a lot of ways we have been playing it wrong. Recommended.

More recent titles have all kinda just left with a "that was fun enough" reaction rather than a "Let's play again!" reaction, or even just a "I'd rather play x designer's older games" It's not for lack of trying. Some of the more recent lauded games I've played are **Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion (2020), The West Kingdom Trilogy ('18, '19 '20), Maracaibo (2019), Underwater Cities (2018), Hallertau (2020), Tekhenu (2020) Sleeping Gods (2021), Cryptid (2018), Wingspan (2019), Root (2018), 7th Continent (2017). ** It's not that I don't think these games are good, they are, but they just seem to lack a bit of a wow factor for me, and out of all those games, I'd rather play something on my first list.

Root Review - A Love Story With Ups & Downs
Island spirit, island is a cooperative experience from greater than games the level of the way these spirits break the game and change the game, and while they still operate with the same rules as opposed to route, where you really have different rules for every single spirit. For every single faction in spirit island, if the the spirits feel different enough and game breaking enough that i get a similar feeling of wanting to dive in with not just every spirit but with every combination of spirits. I want to try this spirit with that spirit

Good not great implementation of the board game. Frequency of bugs has decreased recently. Several months ago approximately 1 out of 3 games had to be aborted because of bugs. But the last few games everything has been running smoothly.

Root or Oath? Which should I buy?
Root has the same thing but it’s a simpler game to understand, plays the factions are all different (with a bunch of expansions). That does mean you need to learn each faction individually but it’s a very enjoyable game. If you have an iPad I would recommend getting the iOS version of Root to start. It’s a great way to learn the game and the ai in it is also pretty good.

Root (and the Riverfolk Expansion) - Shut Up & Sit Down Review
Never I played this so much and I never quite quite got a good game out of it. You know yeah, so I mean you want to sleep this year, I'll, keep it yeah, it's just that they could release an expansion later that, like fixes a lot of my problems with it, so maybe I just want to over come on. We we say that maybe they'll fix in expansion, yes, you're right, okay, you know what you can keep it all

Inis or Root?
Every time I've played so far it's just been a negotiated crab bucket, and the last time I played, we called the game a draw and stopped because it was going yet *another* round because people were tied and we had things to do. The expansion "we need a king" rule helps this apparently but we weren't playing with it. Root can still have a bit of crab bucket to it, but someone *will* win eventually.
