Wingspan is a competitive bird-collection, engine-building game for 1-5 players. You are bird enthusiasts—researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors—seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your aviary. Each bird extends a chain of powerful combinations in one of your habitats (actions).
Notes from Matt: Currently sitting at number 2 on the Board Game Geek Hotness list, due in 2 months, and from Stonemaier, you know this is a quality game. I think the art is gorgeous, and the addition of a single-player mode gives me a way to learn it on my limited gaming time. As far as components, the bird feeder dice tower is adorable. It’s sitting at an 8.3 on Board Game Geek, and while this is somewhat inflated due to this being early release and playtester ratings, that’s still extremely high. Check the video below to see the game play, and see if it trips your trigger, but whether you buy it or not, you’ll want to know about this before it arrives.
These habitats focus on several key aspects of growth:
- Gain food tokens via custom dice in a birdfeeder dice tower
- Lay eggs using egg miniatures in a variety of colors
- Draw from hundreds of unique bird cards and play them
The winner is the player with the most points accumulated from birds, bonus cards, end-of-round goals, eggs, cached food, and tucked birds.
