We love to play board games, but sometimes, after a while, we get tired. That’s why it’s good to have more than one. That way, there’s always an alternative you can pivot to when things get mundane. So, which games are worth trying? We’re glad you asked! Here are a handful of exciting new board games you can back on Kickstarter, some of which include fun rewards. Let’s check them!

Birds of a Feather: Western North America

Birds of a Feather: Western North America

In this card game inspired by an aviary, you will have the opportunity to observe your birds. Travel to a myriad of habitats across western North America and see a wide array of beautiful birds. You will also need to watch your opponents as they try to increase your birding score. Can you outsmart them to complete sets and get the highest score?

Birds of a Feather supports up to 7 players and games that last about 20 minutes each. Not only that, but the materials in the game are made with sustainability in mind, with a Journey North partnership. It’s worth showing this well-thought-out card game some love.
