Up Above Down Under - A Wingspan: Oceania Board Game Expansion Review

All new player boards are included with this expansion. Glancing...

If you have read my review of Wingspan (which you can find here), you know I'm not what you would call a huge fan of the game. However, my wife Jessica ranks it as one of her top 5 games. As a result, I have played a lotof Wingspan. I don't have a problem with that at all. I glide through the game like a Condor riding the jet stream, adjusting ever so slightly for the occasional wind gusts the game blows my way....before descending in complete un-Condor like fashion during the final rounds to lay a metric shit ton of eggs. As such, when I was offered a chance to review the Wingspan: Oceania expansion, I flew at it. I know I am going to be playing Wingspan for the foreseeable future, so why not add something to it to see if it makes it a more rewarding experience?

Excellent overview. I'm still thinking it probably won't be my thing, but it at least sounds like there's a bit more going on and, as you say, it sounds like they dealt with the eggephant in the room.

Yeah I think the review nails it. If you didn't care for the base game, this won't change your mind. But if you did, this expansion makes it better, with minimal rules overhead being added as well as opening up more gameplay , esp at the end where originally everyone just spammed egg laying their last few actions. Plus some of the new bird types are interesting.
