You play as keen birdwatchers and work to attract rare birds to live in your wildlife reserve. You roll dice to harvest food for each bird so you can move them from the shared area to the correct habitat in your reserve. Each bird has special abilities that help you to attract other birds and score points in a variety of ways. For example, Bird cards allow you to gain food, lay eggs and "tuck" birds into your habitat.
It gets interesting because of the incredible array of Birds cards, each presenting a real bird in great detail. Understanding the specific aspects of each bird lets you maximise the positive impact that these have on your overall nature reserve.
As you play, your reserve becomes populated with more varied birds, giving you a wider choice of actions to build your collection in a more effective way. Get this right and score big bonuses and inch closer to being the player with the most points at the end of four rounds.
It's a game about building your knowledge and your card collection at the same time. Like understanding the habits and behaviour of real life birds, the cards have their own unique features, actions and powers, so the deeper your knowledge of the birds, the more successful you are likely to be.
When you first play it's useful to do the following:
- Start by using the Swift Start guide contained in the box, as it guides you through a simplified version of the game.
- Familiarise yourself with the types of birds and consider how they may work together in a reserve.
Play Time: This game will take between 45 minutes and 1 and a half hours to complete.
