Description

Premise

You're an avid birdwatcher and volunteer at the magnificent Aves Nature Reserve. Your daily wildlife reports include where different bird species were seen, their number, food choices, and any nests or eggs. Well-written accounts give you the recognition you seek for landing future employment, perhaps someday becoming Aves' Director of Conservation.  

Objective

Using word cards, build sentences for your daily wildlife report. Earn recognition points from word values, matching sentence patterns, and finding what birds need to survive. Win with the most points or, if solo, enough to reach a recognition goal.

Cool Factors

  • Creative and fun! More than 150 words and thousands of sentence combinations to tell your story.
  • Easy and intuitive to play. Words have symbols showing you the next words to play. It's intuitive to build sentences by adding words from left to the right.
  • Depth of Strategy. With thousands of sentence combinations and three ways to earn points, you have several options for winning. Creating sentences that match sentence patterns, finding the essentials birds need, or going big with bodacious sentences that have high-value word types and patterns are all fun ways to earn points.
  • One-player and 2 to 4 player modes for indulging in your new addiction or sharing it with others.
  • Level 2 expansion cards add fun new adventures at Aves Nature Reserve and a fourth way to earn points.
