Description

Wingspan is a competitive, medium-weight, card-driven, engine-building board game from Stonemaier Games.

You are bird enthusiasts—researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors—seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your network of wildlife preserves. Each bird extends a chain of powerful combinations in one of your habitats (actions). 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 after 4 rounds.

If you enjoy Terraforming Mars and Gizmos, we think this game will take flight at your table.

Customer Reviews

Quality game - fun for everyone (and also has solo mode)!

Reviewed by on

What a great game. Good quality components and lots of stuff (thick glossy cards, high gloss player boards, well designed and printed rule books, appendices and automa manual, containers provided for play pieces). I am seriously impressed. The game is easy to learn from the rules (and if not there are plenty of run throughs on line - Watch it played is a good one). My 10 and 12 year old picked up the game quickly and both thoroughly enjoy it - so has added another option for family boardgames. At the same time it has enough depth and complexity in the strategy to entertain the more experienced gamers too. It is with out doubt my favourite 'engine builder' board game ... but also has so much learning opportunity in regard to the details on the bird cards (although worth noting all N American birds) and their habitats. Will be great if future expansion does Southern African birds too!

My only gripe was the box was slightly dented in the delivery process which thankfully has not affected any components or game play at all.

Awesome game and awesome Raru service
