  • ✨Wingspan |❣️9/10 | 🎲 12 plays

I’m sure that you’ve all seen more than enough birds on your feed, sorry 😅 I can’t help but post about Wingspan though because it’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed a game so much that I’ve been able to play it 10+ times in just over a month! It has the right amount of depth and theme to be a crowd favourite, and it’s also (usually) short enough that people immediately want to replay it. 
Things I’ve learnt from these plays:

1. It overstays its welcome at 5p—this game took 2.5h with rules, which is way too long for a medium-light game. It’s best at 3p but scales well from 2-4p IMO.

2. There aren’t enough eggs at 4-5p! We had to use food as a replacement in the last round, and I’ve seen on BGG that this is a common problem. Food tokens are also showing a little wear.

3. The egg strategy can be quite overpowered, especially when you combine it with birds that allow even more egg-laying. A very boring strategy and beatable with other strategies, but it’s by far the easiest to execute to win. I think it might’ve been better if players could only lay 1 egg at the start and a max of 3-4 instead of 5.

  • Last night we tried adding a third to Wingspan.  For someone will doesn't play boardgames all the time it was a little trickier than we thought.  The rules aren't always obvious and options for your turn can be a little confusing at first. All and all it was a success (I think, she does want to try and play it again). It might take a little more to learn but it's so pleasant aesthetically that everyone enjoyed it. (I don't think anyone is mad we now know bird facts🦆🦅🐦). .

(Ou devrais-je dire « Le fameux » Wingspan)

Un thème original : aménager la plus belle des volières ! Personnellement, le visuel me donnais déjà très envie. Je n’ai pas été déçu. Un thème original certes, mais très bien représenté, images, matériel ! Rien à dire. Concernant le jeu, rien de « nouveau » dans les mécaniques : à ton tour tu as le choix entre 4 actions, le jeu se joue en 4 manches, le but récolter le plus de points. Cependant, il fonctionne super bien, il est fluide, très simple à expliquer. Un jeu stratégique, la rejouabilité est grande entre les objectifs, les cartes objectifs, les cartes oiseaux. Ce n’est pas « le » meilleur jeu du monde, mais en effet c’est un excellent jeu qui fera dorénavant parti des jeux régulièrement sorties à la maison. Achat = 0 regret. Le seul hic, nous avons tellement apprécié y jouer qu’on a trouvé que la partie c’était terminé très vite, trop vite. Concernant la version solo j’y jouerai ce week-end. Je vous ferai un retour. Enfin, j’ai eu la surprise de découvrir la barre des 1100 followers après la partie, ce qui m’a valu de faire la fête et une p’tite photo ! 1100 mercis 🙏 Bref, un jeu que je recommande !

Theme : build the most beautiful aviaries! Personally, the visual already gave me envy. I was not deceived ! Nothing to say. Regarding the game, nothing "new" in mechanics: in your turn you have the choice between 4 actions, the game is played in 4 rounds, the goal to collect the most points. However, it works great, it is fluid, very simple to explain. A strategic game, the replayability is great between goals, objective cards, bird cards. It's not "the" best game in the world, but it's an excellent game that will now include games regularly released at home. Purchase = 0 regret. The only problem, too fast. Regarding the solo version I will play this weekend. I will give you a return. Finally, 1100 followers after the game, thanks 🙏
Short, a game I recommend ! #wingspan #jeu #jeux #game #games #boardgame #boardgames #photography #jeuxdesociete #matagot #followers #1100

  • Played Wingspan again today but now with four people. Still played as smoothly and quickly as with two. The game is just such a pleasure play. The quality of the components is top notch and ‪thematic link between what a bird does mechanically in the game and in real life‬ creates such a delightful immersive experience. This is my game soulmate 😊 #wingspan #ellalovesboardgames @jameystegmaier @elizharg @bethsobel

  • I finally learned how to play Wingspan last night. I’m not a gamer so this is actually the first board game I ever played and I loved it. 
Isn’t it perfect that my first game is the one I helped to illustrate? I’m glad it happened this way. I can now relate to the excitement of playing and watching the cards with my birds is something truly special and satisfying. I scored 73 in my first game. 😍😍😍

  • Wingspan, le jeu dont tout le monde parle en ce moment ! Le matériel est très joli et le thème agréable et original. Le jeu est très simple à prendre en main il convient parfaitement aux enfants et aux néophytes. En revanche pour les joueurs plus chevronnés il n'apporte pas grand chose et est trop dicté par le hasard pour être plus intéressant. #Wingspan #Jeu #J2S #Jeux #JDS #JeuDeSociete #JeuxDeSociete #Games #Game #Combo #BoardGames #BoardGame

  • 🎶 Rolling with my Birdies 🎶  I don’t know how I feel about this one guys... Was it eggciting or did the egg crack under the pressure of all the hype? Did the gameplay take flight or was the fight for a copy NOT worth it? Let me know what you thought! #wingspan #boardgames #allboardgames

  • Playing an amazing game with @armanore2003 tonight called #wingspan from #stonemaiergames. Had to share because of my BFF @woodcock_stone, and my wife and I both lol'd! I love the text at the bottom... "The woodcock's amazing mating display involves repeated dives from 300 feet." Wife adds, "must have small pecker because his wingspan is only 46cm." She's killin' me!!! 🤣🤣🤣

  • Had a great birdy weekend here in CT with Nick. White-faced Ibis, huge flocks of migrating cormorants, and a large flock of breeding plumage Horned Grebes were highlights for me, since I got skunked on the 2nd state record of California Gull. I partially blame Frank Gallo for not keeping the bird on the ground for another 30 seconds... Instead it flew away literally as we pulled up in the car. 🤦🏼‍♀️

  • #Wingspan has quickly become a favourite in my house. It fills a really great gap in my collection as a strategy game that plays great at two players but can be done in an hour while our daughter is napping. It’s also super easy to teach to new players so having people who haven’t played it before with you isn’t a barrier to entry.
