Description

Wingspan is a relaxing, award-winning strategy card game about birds for 1 to 5 players. Each bird you play extends a chain of powerful combinations in one of your three habitats. Your goal is to discover and attract the best birds to your network of wildlife preserves.

You are bird enthusiasts—researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors—seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your network of wildlife preserves. Each bird extends a chain of powerful combinations in one of your habitats. Each habitat focuses on a key aspect of the growth of your preserves.

In Wingspan up to 5 players compete to build up their nature preserves in a limited number of turns. Each beautiful bird that you add to your preserve makes you better at laying eggs, drawing cards, or gathering food. Many of the 170 unique birds have powers that echo real life: your hawks will hunt, your pelicans will fish, and your geese will form a flock.

A mobile port made for people that love the original

I have the base card game with all the expansions and absolutely love it. Ironically, I actually played the iOS version before owning my own copies (but not before playing the original game) and I absolutely love both. I’m looking forward to the new expansions as they release.

This is a near perfect version of the game that I absolutely love picking up and playing a few rounds between short breaks at work or before bed to calm down some.

My only complaint with the game here is that it tracks what birds you’ve collected and used in the game which I absolutely love. But when you’ve played as much of the game as I have, it’s hard to remember what you’ve played before and what you haven’t. I wish there was a visual display on cards you haven’t played before like a little ribbon in the upper right corner or something denoting when a card is ‘new to you’. It’s a little thing but actually collecting the cards and filling out my bird list is the main reason why I’d rather just play this version if I’m home by myself instead of busting out my tabletop versions or a version on Tabletop Simulator .

Good game!

I love this game and was psyched to hear that an iOS version was coming out. I bought it to play on my iPad but apparently I need iOS 13 to run this on my iPad and my iPad runs iOS 12.5. I downloaded it to my iPhone and have a few suggestions and criticisms. The font for the game I know is staying true to the game, but it is very faint and hard to read on an iPhone. I would suggest increase font size slightly or print it in bold. Black text would be best instead of the brown text. You can’t zoom in in this app, so the games that I played I kept having to take it screenshot, go look at the screenshot where I could zoom in on the image to find out what I needed then go back to the game. It was quite frustrating. I ended up finding the game available for the Switch and bought it. Since I can’t play this on my iPad which was my original intention, I probably won’t play the iOS version again. It was too frustrating trying to read it on my iPhone and having to take screenshots. Overall though, good implementation of the game.

hi.

Thanks for the information. I would like to let you know that this problem has now been resolved. We enlarged the font.

Good but Buggy

I love the Wingspan board game and overall this is a good app adaptation of it. However, there are certain birds/combinations that seem to be buggy and cause crashes. Most notably, I just bought the new Oceania expansion, and two games in a row I’ve been unable to complete because the game repeatedly crashes. This seems to be the case when you activate a round-end power in round 4, and then have a yellow game-end power. The game completes your round-end power, tallies the round end bonus scores, but then crashes when it’s time to play the game-end powers. I keep reopening the game and it keeps happening again. I have had similar problems with some of the European expansion cards but those seemed more random. For the price of the expansion I would expect them to work properly. It’s incredibly frustrating to play an entire game and then not be able to find out the final score in the end.

I understand bugs happen and can be worked out, but I’m also disappointed I can’t find any actual app support. The app support link in the App Store takes you to the website for the wingspan app, but there’s no link to report bugs. For the price of this game the developers should have a contact option for users to report these bugs, especially when releasing new expansions.
