2.) It does not say that points are earned for birds on hand. I have a question. We strongly recommend an amendment to the rules and may just decide to do this ourselves as house rules because its so much more difficult AND strategic, Regarding bonus cards. Thanks for the prompt response. The card specifically says it has to have the rat symbol but I’m wondering about birds like the one crow (American Crow, I think) that just has the color wheel symbol because it eats everything, rats included. If I play the European roller sideways in the plains habitat and later want to play the common buzzard in the plaims, do I cover half of the bird to fill a plains slot or do place the buzzard sideways to cover the roller and take up both slots? So you’ll be comparing your three habitats and scoring the one habitat (or multiple if tied) that has the fewest birds. The initial printing had some card errors, which were fixed in (I think) the 2nd printing. They must have some nectar to score any points. There are some beautiful species there! For example if I move from the forest to the water, do I get a bird card? Iralie: Wingspan is indeed published in Chinese by a company called Surfin’ Meeple. 1207. Is it.. Joe answered this exactly as I was going to. Or am I required to cache it? One per round or more? When Player A uses the “Gain Food” option and is taking a fish. Related, can you convert to foods that you don’t need for the bird you’re currently playing, but for another bird you plan to play later? I have a similar question. Unless you’re playing with the Automa Hoard variant, the Automa could gain nothing from your card, so you don’t have the option of laying the 3 eggs. This expansion includes new player mats and a new food type, allowing players to explore different strategies in this new environment. It’s a bit love but was totally worth it. Includes new bonus cards and more end-of-round goals, as well as a new color of eggs. We put all of the food tokens into one. Or not, because player 1 hasn’t gone yet? Player 1 activates their pink power and rerolls all cubes, but none of them are wheat so they fail to gain food. 30 Automa games and I’ve encountered something new. Other questions using the New Player Guide to illustrate the questions: Thanks for the reply. Feel free to follow the rules strictly, or just save yourself a step. For each round, find the round-end goal on the Automa scoring card for that round. Although, this can bleed over based on the migration patterns of the birds. If I have one bird in each habitat with two eggs on each, is that two sets or does each set have to be achieved by being on different birds? If the bird cannot hold any more eggs, can you still tuck a card without laying an egg? Generally, to answer your questions, there are 4 main actions. Daniel: Have you checked with Maldito? I have scythe and wingspan, should I buy charterstone or tapestry next, knowing that I do plan to buy both which order should I buy them? Yes, that is a successful predator action. This is how the expansion was designed and tested. You don’t double the eggs. Scott: As far as I can tell, we included that color out of the possibility of including a bird with that color word in the future, but so far there isn’t a bird in Wingspan with that color in their name. Has there been any discussion of using a different shape or a color to help with distinguishing the expansions? My group and I have been really enjoying Wingspan. Hi, I have a question about playing with the Automa. If there’s a three-way tie, then all three of the places they tied for would be split (for instance, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, then other players would get 4th and beyond). The most usual conditions are: 1) Rolling some dice and seeing whether a particular prey item (mouse, fish, etc.) I’m intrigued to know what the scores were like in play-testing. The Wingspan Oceania expansion is more than a box of beautiful birds. This time, at the end of Player 2’s turn, there is a seed. But feel free to post in the Wingspan FB group to see if others disagree! Hi Thomas! :). Officially, only the words listed on the Photographer bonus card count (and any words added in expansion rulebooks). Thanks. i know that nectar is discarded upon round end, but does that technically happen before i resolve end of round powers? (2) No, they’re considered blank, nothing other than 1 VP. Not yet, but a partner is working on it. Swift Start bangs out half a round in 20 minutes, and you can then explain goals and strategy on top of that base understanding of the game mechanics. I’ll answer you questions below: Please help with the viticulturalist too. That bonus card is specifically looking for the fish icon.

It is TOTALLY worth it. 1. You’re welcome to post here, but I just wanted to let you know that your great questions will help more people if they’re posted in one of those other locations. It means for example if someone else activates the hunter power that says “Look at a bird from the deck. I think the Photographer card explicitly lists “snowy”, though. Can I take one and reroll all the dice (all the same rule) or do I have to take the two and the reroll? It says to reset the birdfeeder and if there is wheat for the other player to gain it. The Mockingbird allows you to repeat a bird’s power (in the same habitat). Hi Tig! Repeater You could try to contact them to see if they would send it to you. I think the new Oceania Automa rules may be sidetracking me as I’m not “checking” if I am giving a token away. : card-for-food, food-for-egg, egg-for card)? Best, Round changes, player 2 now goes first I assume that most nectar in a habitat still gives 5p and the other player gets 2p. Even though in real life, the mockingbird does not talk another bird into singing their song twice, but instead sings their song also, as if they are that other bird. That’s correct. No, that bonus card (and others like it) specify that it’s looking for cards with a specific food icon, so wild doesn’t apply. :). :). I don’t have those specific birds in front of me, but based on the information you provided, yes, it counts. Nope, you can just shuffle them all together! Is doesn’t make sense to me because then those cards are worth nothing for the round 4 goal. I have read it with an open mind. If it remains a small circle with two letters on the inside, then I’m not sure the font will vary enough to readily recognize which set the card is from. The board, from eggs you’ve played? On a later turn I play another bird (Ruby-Crowned Kinglet) in the second forest space spending a seed and an egg to do so. We have a rules question about the European Expansion: Some birds, like the White Wigtail, have a round end power that says “If you used all four types of actions this round, play another bird.” Our question is this: if you are using that power to play another “round end”-powered bird, do you then instantly get to use your new bird’s round-end power? Player 3 has an opportunity to take food, because of the pink power bird, so Player 3 resets the bird feeder. Hi and thanks for replying my previous question. What does resetting the bird feeder mean. You activate ALL pink powers of bird cards on your player mat when the Automa shows the “Activate Pink Powers” symbol. How is this regarding the “Sets of eggs in habitat” If you only have Cetti and another bird in the water habitat, does Cetti count double so that you can get 3 sets if you have 3 birds in each of the other two habitats. And the pink “once between turns” powers can be activated once between your turns. Check out the “rules questions” above on this page. But apparently that was not a legal move. I’m sorry if my English sentences are incorrect. This second expansion to Wingspan focuses on birds in Australia and New Zealand. Not officially, but some people houserule that. Question about one of the Once Between Turns card: If the card states “When another player’s (predator) succeeds, gain …” what does succeed mean? As printed in the rules, you only count VP on birds you’ve *played*. Tonight we had a four player game and we finished 15 eggs short. 3. Turn 3: Regarding paying the egg cost at the top of the column, does this cost need to be paid only for the Gain Food row or also in the Grassland and Wetland rows as well if a card is played in those rows? I’m loving it! Despite there being no seed icon, strictly speaking, would these birds also count for birds that eat seed? Totally addicted during quarantine. I really love the details and artwork. Anyway, the rules are available for download here (link from top of this page): https://m.box.com/shared_item/https%3A%2F%2Fapp.box.com%2Fs%2Fxtwzcdxld63v57tkfbxwoacfwhfqpyu0 Both “beak” and “head” count for Anatomist (they’re on the list). Indeed, you can do that. Can Player 3 then take that seed? You can only spend cached food if a card specifically refers to cached food. Unofficially, your group can decide to include any word you’d like! 1. These birds can migrate as long as there is no other card to their right. When you play a bird over the Grey Heron, the new bird will also go sideways, completely covering up the Grey Heron, which becomes a tucked bird. I planned ahead to what I would want to do next turn, and moved them all to that row so I could get a lot of whatever that row offered next turn. Love this game so much. Neither “snow” nor “bunting” are colors, so no. The number beside the image of the current goal is a base number that tells you the MINIMUM count of that item that Automa will ‘have’ at the end of the round. Thanks David! That’s how we’ve playing, but the question came up in a recent game. I feel that an egg could be placed by my Yellow-Billed Cuckoo on one of my STAR nest birds. If you have the European Magpie and let’s say the Eurasian Nuthatch. Can players freely look through the discard piles for bonus cards and bird cards? Check out page 11 of the European Expansion to see how Teal Powers are handled when comparing to the Automa. (I might want to do this, for example, if I have a Black Redstart on my mat [“Choose a habitat with no [egg]. Rulebook verbiage mentions success as tucking a card or cacheing food – but not pulling from feeder. regarding end of round (blue) powers and nectar; if i have a round end that is to play another bird if conditions are met, may I use nectar to pay it’s food cost? I feel like this is a very stupid question (took three games for us to get most of the rules, we think): is it true that in a game you deal only ONCE on the first round? Thanks, Jamey. If Player A takes a mouse now, will Player B get a mouse as well? It’s within the letter of the law, but not the spirit we felt. 7. It makes for a very fun game. So it’s “optional.”. Hi Deborah! But I can also try to answer things here. When asked for birds with a colour in their name. Yes, I think we’ll supply the 2 cards with small, gameplay-impacting typos to the Geek Store. There is a particular reason! Do you draw the card with the Snow Bunting before or after the bird tray is refilled. Here’s what the European Expansion rulebook says about pink powers and teal powers: “Round end powers [teal] do NOT activate ‘once between turns’ (pink) powers.” Essentially, pink powers are activated on other players turns. Turn 2: I’m not sure I understand the question, but hopefuly I’ve already answered it or the video has helped. you know, it’s nice to get replacements for the 2 cards with errors in the numbers, but the art mistake is just as important. A full-AI version of Wingspan is available from Monster Couch. So, to me, Eleonora’s Falcon’s power seems like a predation power: Or is only one habitat able to be counted for fewest birds? The ruby throated hummingbird for example, when played in the middle gave my sister extra nectar each time. Will there be a way to buy sets of eggs? For each action cube on their (X habitat), lay 1 egg on this bird”. Hi and thanks for a great game! It’s just where these birds typically live. Or do you just count the total number of eggs in each habitat and count the total number of sets regardless of where they are placed vertically? “Take two dice from the bird feeder and discard a card to reset the bird feeder” In this case the player would “pretend” that the NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD was a second CHIHUAHUAN RAVEN for this turn, to determine which egg to discard. I didn’t realize it specifically said they can be used every time. Hi there! Hi Brittany! Cetti’s Warbler, and other birds with the same power, only count double for end-round goals that count birds. Well, good to know. If, during I activate Loggerhead Shrike’s power, someone gains food from the birdfeeder by activating another bird’s power, can I get a mouse from the supply? Not to disagree with the rest of the comment, which is sensible and appreciated. When using the Snipe power I (All players draw a card from the deck) does the deck also include the face up cards on the tray? Player A takes the “gain food” action – triggering the Kingfisher’s power. Player 2 gains food, leaving only one berry in the tray. That’s what I did. Thanks Lilla! Nectar is a food, and if it has the “pinwheel all food symbol” that always includes nectar, as mentioned in the Oceania rules. Thanks. Yes, “Once between turns” is just shorthand for “it resets after each of your turns.”. We are confused about the End of Round goal: Sets of eggs in all there habitats… Does this mean that if I have one card in each habitat, with two eggs on each card, that I have two points? My wife says one thing, I say another. When determining the value of birds in a row for end of round goals, is a sideway’s bird counted as one or two birds? 2. Each foreign language publisher handled the name-related bonus cards differently. If another player then triggers the power, it doesn’t activate. You can! The fonts used are listed in this card frames file: Here it says you may avoid paying any costs by playing over another bird, but it doesn’t allow you to avoid the grassland habitat limitation. The Appendix says: “Discard the egg to the supply.” As it is, 1 egg for 2 foods already tips the game heavily towards the Raven owner. Your e-mail address is only used to send you our newsletter and information about the activities of Boardgame Stories, such as Giveaways, Games on Kickstarter and Latest Videos. When playing a bird, can you play a bird directly from the 3 exposed cards after paying the food cost, or ONLY from your existing hand after paying the food cost? Are neoprene mats available for the OE? Sorry, but you’re choosing only between those 2 cards. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/v7n7opg1rh7xgb0/AACaACgxKIsFVSE9lPOtbaaTa?dl=0, That file is linked in this pretty fun article about people using these card frames for special occasions. can i find the rules in swedish somewhere? Hi Chelsea! This ability is referring specifically to the core benefit of the “gain food” action, not “when activated” bird abilities. Turn 1: This is demonstrating the “Play a Bird” action, not the “Gain Food” action. Have fun, David. Yes, your pink power can activate once after your last turn. Hey guys, love the game. You do not have to hold a card in your hand to discard. So I don’t lay my 2 eggs (maybe my birds are full) but also other players can’t either. While my answer remains the same (play with the card as printed), you are correct that those cards need the corresponding icons for future printings. At the end of the round, when it’s time to compare how you did at the goal, Automa will have the base number shown on the card plus 1 for each cube placed there. I went through the tutorial and noticed that the bottom of the cards never showed. Generally the reason you would do it is to set up your next turn (as it makes the core action more powerful on its new row). Do you always have to move the birds with the move to another habitat power or can you choose to leave it in that habitat. The Automa will not collect food tokens. Predator: I’ve played with that card, and while I think it’s great, it just seems a bit too good. I draw 2 cards from the deck and move to Clark’s grebe who let’s lets me draw 1 bird, if I do discard 1 at the end of the turn. Is all of this correct? Yes, the normal cost for a bird placed in the third column includes 1 egg, so you must pay 1 egg (and the food cost on the Hooded Warbler). Since “snowy” is on the Photographer, I would say that “snow” counts. Impossible to play i don t speak english ihave the rule in french in the box i want you ‘re video with somebody playing, https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=wingspan+playthrough, Hi, I have a question on the rules/play. How does this apply when the other player has a teal power to discard up to 5 grains to tuck that many cards from the deck? Player has a bird that can “move to another habitat”. It does activate immediately and you can activate all round-end powers remaining in whatever order you wish. No, because as soon as you take the second die, you must reroll them–the hunting power won’t activate until later. If you do tuck…” Does it have to all the same food or could I discard 2 seeds and 3 fish to tuck 5 cards? :). That’s not how the Automa was designed and balanced, but it’s technically possible. The Loggerhead Shrike’s power only activates when another player specifically takes the “gain food” action. It doesn’t state this in the rule book nor in the instructional videos. Unlike in Snowy owl, where I think it means it is white colored as in an “owl covered by snow”. When can the face up bird cards be drawn, only when playing the “draw a bird card” action? Yes, you can request a replacement book here: https://stonemaiergames.com/about/replacement-parts/. With the green end-of-round goals, how does it work with a 3 players tie? Thanks for your feedback! I absolutely love the game. Can’t find this in the rules, hope you can help: are pink, white and blue powers optional? Here’s the long example of how it came up: At the start of the game we turned a round 4 end-of-round goal that was “birds in grasslands.” One player played the Eurasian Green Woodpecker (round end power: counts double toward round goal) in round 1 expecting to collect the bonus at the end of round 4. When it says activate all pink powers, do you have to activate ALL of them or chose which ones you want? Migrator There are no typos or mistakes, if that’s your question. It’s a minor nitpick, but why were 4 plastic trays included when there’s 5 kinds of food to separate? We originally thought the bonus (1 point per bird) was for the number of birds that had at least 4 egg symbols on them (e.g., the BURROWING OWL).
