    K and I got a game in with it last night. She's not a super hardcore gamer, but it was a pretty easy teach, fairly breezy game (but there's definitely enough depth to keep hobbyists interested) and she ended up winning on the tiebreaker. It's definitely a game that belongs in any collection. If nothing else, it really is great to look at and the components are really high quality. It's really hard not to fanboy about everything Stonemeier does.

    Hm. This is the first I’ve heard of Wingspan, but it looks like the rare game Mrs. Ott might be into. I’ll have to check it out further!

    I cannot recommended it enough! I think it's a great mix of being approachable for a casual game yet deep enough for a hardcore gamer. And it has an important feature that I try to look for in board games: a good solo mode.

    You might have trouble finding a copy. It's been selling out pretty quickly wherever it happens to end up in stock. The publisher didn't anticipate the popularity and has ordered additional print runs. The second run is what is trickling into stores now (and where I got a copy on Amazon before they sold out their stock), with another hitting stores I think in late May and then another in July.

    Don't fall for Ebayers trying to cash in on the hype. List price should be about $55.
