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.
Wingspan 2nd edition (and all future printings) has a new component in the box, a swift-start pack (4 guides and 10 new bird cards) to help guide new players through their first game of Wingspan.

A relaxing strategy card game !
This is such a lovely game to play either on your own or with a few friends. Although at first it might take a little while to get used to the gameplay, once you figure it out, it goes really smoothly and you can then begin to be more strategic with your card and egg placements.<br /> <br /> The player boards and cards are very well made and I love the feel and look of the eggs. The cards have a nice texture to them which is lovely to feel in your hands and with good care they would probably last a life time. Putting the little birdhouse dice tower together was fun and it just looks gorgeous as well.<br /> <br /> The illustrations are also gorgeous. Realistic but still with an added touch of magic to them ! It is such a visually-pleasing game and you also get to learn little facts about the birds.<br /> <br /> Lastly, the discount code for the game on Steam is such a nice touch too ! The online version of the game has a few added plus like hearing the calls of the birds and the nice little animations of the cards.
Great and replayable
Wingspan at first is quite a complex game as there are a number of mechanics involved in game play. But after 1 or 2 games you will be comfortable with them all. The thing that is great about this game is that every game is very different. You can't rely on playing the game exactly the same everytime. The variation of cards and engine building means that you need to adapt and build your own success. Figuring out a strategy or making hard decisions is what makes this game fun.
Lovely, relaxing, beautiful to look at game. Lots of informative, pretty cards to play. Really good quality cards, boards and even the instructions are of the same high quality. While still competitive it has a different quality and pace to it than other board games. Definitely recommend.
Great game with wide appeal
I saw this become available recently on boardgamer.ie and ordered it as quick as I could as I know its quite hard to find. I was delighted to find it arrived in a few days and my friends and I have been loving it ever since. Its a light to medium weight game that would appeal both to families and board gamers who are looking for a game that can be played in an hour or less. And the design is gorgeous! Would highly recommend if it becomes available again.
