Kennerspiel Winner Wingspan Taking Flight in Digital Form

It’s just day after day after day after day of great news coming out this month.

Today’s monthly email from Jamey Stegmaier at Stonemaier Games contained another great announcement, hot on the heals of the Viticulture one.

In what almost seemed like an aside, Jamey revealed that MonsterCouch studios is going to be developing Wingspan for digital platform(s) with a release date sometime in 2020.

It’s even available to add to your Wishlist on Steam!

Wingspan was designed by Elizabeth Hargrave with art by Ana Maria Martinez Jaramillo, Natalia Rojas and Beth Sobel. It won this year’s Kennerspiel award so you know it has to be good!

I’ve played it, and it is definitely good.

Briefly, Wingspan is a tableau-building card game about birds, where you are trying to make the best bird habitats around. I love how the action system works.

If you want to find out a bit more about how it plays, go to the “New to me” post for January and it has a complete description as well as my thoughts.

The idea that I will be able to play this on my iPad or on Steam next year makes me very happy. Note, though, that Steam is the only platform that’s been announced. No word yet on mobile.

Here’s a screenshot from the MonsterCouch page, but check out their page for more. It looks pretty good already!

I’ll keep an eye on this one.

What do you think? Are you salivating as much as I am?
