Wingspan is a competitive, medium-weight, card-driven, engine-building board game from Stonemaier Games.

You are bird enthusiasts—researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors—seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your aviary. Each bird extends a chain of powerful combinations in one of your habitats (actions). These habitats focus on several key aspects of growth:

  • Gain food tokens via custom dice in a birdfeeder dice tower
  • Lay eggs using egg miniatures in a variety of colors
  • Draw from hundreds of unique bird cards and play them

The winner is the player with the most points after 4 rounds.

Probably #Wingspan cause it's one bird I won't be cooking today

This is an interesting question that I'll admit I thought way too long about. The only thing I thought of was a flicking game with #Wingspan, but I guess #Angry Birds: Knock On Wood Game does exist LOL. I thought it would be fun to ask Sarah what she would combine, and pretty much all of her answers were Wingspan with something else to more or less make every game Wingspan themed lol. Summed up by the following:

Hmm, that is a fascinating concept.  Let's see...what if I took..mmm, say #Ecos: First Continent and we combine that with something like...oooh, oooh... #Wingspan!  Weaving them together well is the tough part, especially since the African birds expansions hasn't been released yet...I think the number of ECOS tiles revealed is the number of birds readily avaialable to choose from each round.  If you take the "gain food" action, you can forgo gaining one food to gain a symbol of your choice.  For the "lay eggs"action, you may forgo obtaining an egg to double the symbol net drawn from the tile bag.  For the "draw cards" action, you can forgo one drawn card to draw one additional tile from the tile bag.

That's as far as I got with that one but other fun game combos might be #Terraforming Mars & #Anachrony

#Heaven & Ale & #Troyes

#PARKS & #Wingspan (huge potential!)

#Tapestry & #Scythe

#Century: Spice Road & #Splendor

On the 'games to play with non-gamers' tip I've personally found card games to be the most successful. Even games like #Wingspan or #Everdell might take a bit of coaxing since they're "medium" weight, whereas something like an Oink game can be taught in 1 minute and played in 5, for the most part, and some of them are good enough to string back-to-back for an hour or two.
