Wingspan board game
Wingspan from Stonemeier Games is an incredibly good board game. So good that we declared it the best board game of 2019. Wingspan looks like a deceptively simple game; The end goal of the game is to attract as many birds as possible to your wildlife sanctuary and help them reproduce. There are only four actions you can take: draw a bird card, play a bird card, get food, and lay eggs. Sounds easy enough, right? Let’s just say that behind these four actions lies an incredibly complex engine-building game in which you have to juggle between introducing new birds into the flock and keeping your existing birds in good stock and in a breeding frenzy. Wingspan is infinitely replayable and you’ll find yourself developing and refining new strategies with each subsequent playthrough.
