Wingspan If you havent heard of it already is an awesome board game that has been taking the tabletop community by storm.

What is Wingspan

Wingspan is a board game that has become even more popular over the last few months since winning the 2019 Kennerspiel des Jahres award.

Wingspan for those that are yet to play it. is a competitive, medium-weight, card-driven, engine-building board game from publisher Stonemaier Games and designer Elizabeth Hardgrave.

In Wingspan, players take the role of bird enthusiasts, researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors that are seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your network of wildlife preserves.

Players win the game by collecting the most victory points at the end of the game by collecting eggs, playing bird cards and completing bird card actions.

The Birds

One of the most notable thing about Wingspan is the 170 uniquely illustrated and designed bird cards that are included in the game but for some superfans, this is not enough.

Something I have been noticing on the wingspan facebook group run by Stonemaier Game is the fans creating some amazing looking custom cards for the game some of these are comical and good for a laugh while others have you hitting up your local printing service to try to work out how you can print a copy to add to your game.
