Join your fellow Wayfarers for a virtual game night! We’ll be playing the online version of Wingspan, a nature-based strategy game where we play as bird enthusiasts seeking to discover and attract the best birds to our network of wildlife preserves.
All attendees will have the chance to win a physical copy of the Wingspan board game. Prizes for game winners abound, too—we’ve got Kirtland’s warbler coffee mugs and Bird Collective patches and stickers to give away!
This is the perfect opportunity to meet more nature-loving board game enthusiasts. Even if you haven’t played Wingspan before, we’ll have experienced players ready to help you learn as you go.
DETAILS and REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS
- You’ll need to pre-register for this event, so we know how many people to expect. The game allows for up to five players, so we’ll have multiple games going in different breakout rooms on Zoom.
- If you don’t already have Wingspan Online, you’ll have to purchase it ahead of time. It is currently $19.99. You can buy it on Steam at this link: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1054490/Wingspan/
- Even if you’ve played the physical game before, we recommend playing through a tutorial round of the online game (Menu > Play > Tutorial) or watching an online guide before the event. Here’s a link to one of many online guides: https://youtu.be/mMWLUenJ8wA
- Be sure to download the game in advance of our event and have the menu up and ready when you log into our Zoom meeting.
- Feel free to login to the Zoom early if you're around; we'll be online and socializing starting around 6:45pm. Once everyone arrives, we’ll do introductions, split off into groups to play, and reconvene at the end of the evening to do a giveaway of the physical copy of the board game and dish out prizes to game winners!
