This is currently my wife's favorite game. And its at the top of my list as well. The mechanics are very tight. You never feel like you're running away with the game. It's always feels like a challenge to play another bird or achieve the end of round/game goals that are set for you. Which makes it an tense and exciting experience from the beginning to the end. The different types of birds, their powers, and the scoring mechanics mean that there are a multitude of different strategies you can use to win the game. A definite purchase.
great intro engine builder and great solo
This game checks all of the boxes for me. It's gorgeous, has quality components and gameplay to match. Scales well at different player counts, easy to teach yet requires thoughtful decision-making. Total win for me and will never leave my collection.
We love this relaxing 1-5 player game.
