  1. this game is so ugly and boring. Sorry, i dont understand the hype 🤷‍♂️

  2. I understand the criticisms but I think viewed as a more lightweight/familyweight game I can forgive things like the lack of effect variety in return for fewer questionable rules interactions. I love Wingspan for its chilled and simple vibe. Player count is best at 3, I think, the comment about it slowing down at 4-5 is very on the money but it depends on how lazy your Sunday is as to whether that’s a good or bad thing!

  3. I really wanted to like this game, and at first I did. But I did not manage to play it my target five times, because I got bored after three games and could not get myself to play twice more.

    Yes, there is a lot that can theoretically happen and there are a lot of different theoretical interactions.

    But in reality, not much of that actually happens or pans out, and you can't even accomplish that much in a single game.

    In comparison, I played Bruges so many times. That's also a game where you can't plan ahead that far, and where the luck of the draw heavily influences your chances of winning.

    But every card really does something different, and you can come across cool new combos every time you play.

  4. Did you feel that the game's expansions addressed any of your concerns?

  5. if anyone is watching years later, the expansions solve the lack of variety very well

  6. Anyone else look up “combinatorial” to check if it was a real word?

  7. One thing I love about this game is the components. The booklets have a lovely texture, the cards look amazing, the eggs are cute, and the birdhouse dice tower is just icing on the top and fun to use.

    It even has a little drawing on the box to help organise the box for storage. Lovely pollish on that front.

  8. Looks like one of those games with few players interactions which I don't really enjoy. Thank you for this great review.

  9. Excellent competent and fair review. I subscribed immediately

  10. Game reviewers crossover!! Game reviewer multiverse?

  11. Does Wingspan’s box really come with that little birdhouse for your dice?? I would buy any game for that prop alone!

  12. I'm marathoning through the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast and heard you were mentioned, so I paused it and had to watch this ASAP.

  13. Most overrated overhyped game ever I will give you credit for not falling for the hype Theme is dry and not not connected …my groups were interested due to awesome graphics but too complex for newbies and too meh for gamers

  14. Have you guys tried Innovation? It's got over 100 unique cards and is about as wild and interactive an engine builder as you could ever play. Maybe too wild until you play it double digits but would recommend.

  15. Quinns sounds like The Skeksis from The Dark Crystal. HMMMMMMMM!

  16. People say this game is so gorgeous, but from what I've seen in videos & pics, everything but the box cover looks plain & boring. What am I missing? Are the card drawings really that much better in person?
