Card-based strategy titles have been coming to the Switch in a pretty steady stream but I don’t think there have been any quite like Wingspan. With an ornithological focus, everything you do in this title revolves around birds, just be sure to be ready to do quite a bit of reading and experimentation to truly get up to speed. Turns are spent gathering various types of feed, laying eggs, or playing the bird cards in your hand, with your focus often being on working out how best to chain your various bonuses to maximize every turn. Since you’ll be playing against a CPU competitor taking a look at what may be going on with them won’t be a bad thought, and opportunities may arise with predatory birds in your deck to capitalize even on actions they take. Careful and thoughtful planning and a bit of luck can go a long way to help you succeed in this game, and that can be rewarding when everything comes together, but whether or not the experience will be something for everyone is a fair question.
