This expansion to Wingspan features the regal, beautiful, and varied birds of Europe. There are 81 new birds in this expansion, like the Snowy Owl (hi Hedwig!) and the European Honey Buzzard. These birds feature a variety of new abilities, including a number of birds with round end abilities, abilities that increase interaction between players, and birds that benefit from excess cards/food. It also comes with a new color of eggs, purple!
This expansion is more of a small step than a giant leap, as the European expansion focuses primarily on expanding gameplay and strategy through the use of new and different bird cards. The Oceania expansion, in contrast, adds new food sources and player mats to the mix. You can play the European birds either as a standalone set of cards or mixed in with cards from Wingspan and Wingspan Oceania Expansion. It's up to you!
You do need the core game Wingspan to play.
