Bird Collecting 'Engine-building' Game
Posted by William Niebling on January 2, 2019 @ 9:26 pm CT
In Wingspan, the players are bird enthusiasts seeking to attract a variety of birds to their aviary. As they do so, the players gain abilities based on the birds that they have collected, and combining these abilities into an “engine” is critical to the game’s strategy. In order to attract birds to their aviary, players must first collect food that is attractive to that type of bird and encourage the birds already in their aviary to lay eggs. After four rounds of play, the player with the most points wins the game, but random goal tokens can change the way victory points are awarded from game to game.
Intended for 1 to 5 players, ages 10 and up, Wingspan takes about an hour to play. MSRP is $55.00.
Stonemaier released its crossover game Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig in October (see “The Building Bonanza of Mad King Ludwig Continues”).
