The board game, originally published by Stonemaier Games, is localized for the German-speaking market by Tierra del Fuego games. The digital adaptation of wing flap - in this country the board game by Elizabeth Hargrave was called Expert game of the year excellent - is based closely on the template in terms of the playful concept.

The indie studio Monster Couch offers players the opportunity to try out Flugelschlag as a digital board game for free as part of a demo. Two rounds of the tutorial and two further game rounds are available. That's enough to get a first impression of the adaptation. Little changes in terms of play, but quite a few changes in terms of presentation. In addition to animations, the bird calls in particular are a clear plus of the digital version compared to the “silent” template. Basically, anyone who likes flapping the wings as a board game and is not averse to digital implementation will like the version.

Wing Flap is an engine builder for one to five players. Rare bird species have to be settled in different habitats and, if possible, play out combination chains. At the same time, ornithologists have to find the right balance between types of food, eggs and species.
