In this game of bird deduction, each player gets a bird. By asking questions and using the key of twenty four birds, the players are attempting to deduce the mystery bird of their opponents. But don’t ask about the appearance of the birds—focus instead on their prominent attributes, which are expressed through icons on each card.
Can their bird swim? Is it endangered? Does it eat fish? If the answer is “yes” to all of these, it must be an Atlantic puffin!
What other birds are in the game? 24 birds from around the world are included in the game: northern cardinal, house sparrow, snowy owl, splendid fairywren, Indian peafowl, wild turkey, mallard duck, ruby-throated hummingbird, common ostrich, bald eagle, Atlantic puffin, common kingfisher, Australian pelican, Canada goose, grey crowned crane, greater flamingo, emperor penguin, common magpie, barn owl, great spotted woodpecker, toco toucan, peregrine falcon, tawny frogmouth, and kakapo.
