Staff Review: Wingspan

Board Game: Wingspan

Review by Josh

A great gateway into more complex board games, Wingspan is phenomenal in both style and gameplay. Every card features a unique bird with a beautiful illustration and fun bird fact; you then use these bird cards to build your ‘engine’ and as the game progresses your turns take on more and more importance and complexity. While it’s not a game you can pick up and play in minutes, the reward for learning the ins and outs are beyond worth your time. It’s also one of the few board games that boasts a fully fleshed out 1-player mode for when you can’t get a group together. (I’ll admit, I’ve played this more than the group mode.) Also, there’s a great range of expansions available that add even more to the game. Complexity 3.5-5
