Wingspan’s Next Expansion Announced


Stonemaier Games has announced Wingspan: Asian, the next expansion of its popular Wingspan franchise. The new game will add 90 new birds and 11 bonus cards (giving players variable options for additional victory points), all of which originated in Asia, along with several new game modes. Wingspan: Asia can be played as a stand-alone game for 1 or two players through the new Duet mode, added to the original Wingspan game, or add a 6-7 player expansion via the new Flock mode.

Wingspan is one of the most popular modern board games released in recent years. The game is an engine building card game created to attract birds to your nature reserve. Each type of bird has different abilities and is activated during different parts of the game. The key to Wingspan it’s building longer and longer combos that build up each turn. Players score victory points based on different criteria (and by completing their bonus cards) and the winner is the person with the most victory points after four turns. The game made its way to the general public due to its focus on birds and can now be found at major retailers like Target and Barnes & Noble.

This is the third expansion for Wingspan, following the European Expansion Y Oceania expansion. Both expansions added new bird cards and egg types, but Wingspan: Asia it is the first to be playable as a purely standalone mode.

Wingspan: Asia it will launch in November 2022. Pricing and other details are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
