Wingspan, this year’s hottest new board game features birds!

Wingspan is in the shop now! This hard to find game is finally back in stock!

 

Wingspan is a competitive, medium-weight, card-driven, engine-building board game from designer Elizabeth Hargrave and Stonemaier Games. It is the winner of the prestigious 2019 Kennerspiel des Jahres award.

Players are bird enthusiasts; researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors who seek 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 bird feeder dice tower
  • Lay eggs using egg miniatures in a variety of colors
  • Draw from hundreds of unique bird cards and play them
  • 1-5 players
  • 40-70 minute playing time
  • Ages 10+
