Such an amazing strategy game. The craftsmanship is beautiful. We have introduced several of our friends to the game and they all love it too, but I love that you can also play with two people.

Beautiful artwork with interesting descriptions for each bird. My partner and I went through the quick start guide the instructions recommended. The rules were easy to learn along the way. This is our current favorite board game! If you enjoy decking building games with resource management then you will enjoy this game.

This game is bad. Initial set up takes 45 minutes. Learning to play takes almost as long. Written directions are difficult to understand. Watched recommended videos. A lot of time into learning and it turns out this game is just not all that enjoyable. We have Catan, Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Dominion, etc. Pick any of those over this game. It's beautiful but not worth it.

I LOVE the birdhouse dice tower and the wooden dice. The colorful wooden eggs are also a great touch. My 8 and 10yo really enjoy playing this.

Very fun and chill game to play. I enjoyed it a lot more with two players compared to four, and it was a lot faster too. I have not tried the single player (automa) but it looks very interesting and I like that I have the option to play solo if my hubby is not in the mood. The art is beautiful and it is a very well designed game, lots of different strategies you could take to win. It’s not a very competitive game, as apposed to other games we have. This game showed up on a lot of “top board game” lists of 2022 and I’ll say I get why, I would definitely recommend to a novice or experienced gamer.

A gem of a game`

5 out of 5 stars
Henry D - 8 months ago, Verified purchaser
The first time I pulled this game out at a game shop and tried to read through the instructions, the barrier to entry felt too high and I gave up and put it away. The second time I tried it a year later, a friend who was versed in the game showed me how to play and gosh I am sad I missed out on a year of playing this. What an absolutely amazing game with well-defined play mechanics and endless strategic angles. It's a very good social game too where you aren't at each other's throats. Winner is truly not revealed or known until the very end. This is one of the best games of the past 5 years in my opinion.

My husband is a board game lover and I'm not, but we both enjoy playing Wingspan. There is a good balance between luck and strategy and although there are a lot of game parts, it's pretty easy to learn. The pieces are nice and the bird artwork is beautiful!

Game arrived opened and was clearly already played. Some pieces were missing and others were damaged. Game looks beautiful but this review is on Target. Usually they provide excellent customer service, but now I have to take this “new” game back to the store to receive my refund.

At first the game seemed like too many pieces and too complicated. We watched a video on how to play and we were off and running. My husband and I play a couple of times a week and our adult children love it too! It is expensive, but worth it if you love games.

Beautiful game and so much fun! Takes a bit of time to learn and your first few rounds will take some time, but then it is easily picked up and moves along quickly. This has become our go-to game and never disappoints! Amazing gift for a bird nerd, but the gorgeous cards and adorable pieces appeal to all. Love it!

BrandyC - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
This is a beautifully themed engine building game with a high replay factor. With so many unique card abilities you need to stay on your toes and change your game strategies based on the cards available. It is a relatively quick (usually under 1 hour) and relaxed gaming experience. I will say the rule book was a bit difficult at first but after a few turns of actual game play things became much more clear. I'd recommend finding a 'How to play' video in addition to rule reading.
