This game is the opposite. Getting this for the backyard birder would probably incite some frustration. My parents and grandparents enjoy birding, however they will have no idea where to find a Fulvous Whistling-Duck, much less what it is.
The rules are simple. Answer a question, move forward. Get to the end = win. There are "obstacles" to the simple play called "Life List" cards, which are much like Chance or Community Chest. You can do bad things and be forced to move back (such as disrupting a nest) or great things like winning a free trip to a birding hotspot!
The game tests knowledge of many subjects: Birding Hotspots/Geography/Anatomical Identification/Field Marks/Calls/Nesting and Clutch Identification/Foraging Habits and Food Sources/Habitats, etc.
Each card features 3 questions per side, one beginner, intermediate, and expert question. The questions cover the entire North America, and any species or location is up for grabs. Here are some examples:
Beg: A female Redhead can be identified by its head of what color: black, brown, red, or white? A: Brown
Int: How does a Canvasback hunt: dabbles at the surface of the water, dives under the water, or forages on land?Read more ›
The game is similar to Monopoly except you most certainly need some knowledge about birds.It is totally different from Monopoly in that unless the player knows a lot of things about birds and has been a serious Birder for a number of years ;it would be pointless in thinking they would enjoy it.Monopoly can be played by anyone from 5 to 105,and requires no knowledge at all.This game is all facts and trivia that takes many years of learning and study.and I even mean trying to answer the Beginner Level Questions,let alone the Expert Level Questions.
Just for example ,here is a Beginner question;
The male King Eider can be identified by its protruding frontal shield of what color:black,blue,green,or orange? Ans:orange.Now tell me,if one doesn't even know what Eiders are,what chance do they have of answering that?
Here's another typical Beginner Question;
Name three species of Jays.Ans:Blue,Brown,Gray,Gray-breasted,Pinyon,Scrub and Steller,s. Most people might get Blue Jay and The Toronto Blue Jay baseball player doesn't count.And how about this for a Beginner? What type of Woodpeckers are known for drilling evenly spaced rows in trees:Flickers,Three-toed,or Sapsuckers? Ans: Sapsuckers.Don't be surprised if someone says, What about Woody Woodpecker,and quits the game.Then there are the Intermediate and expert Questions,such as The "Peterson" field guide has described this southern Ducks call as a loud squealing "ka-whee-oo"? Ans:Fulvous Whistling-Duck.
So,Why did I rate this game 5*?Read more ›

Bought this for my 12 year old nephew who is an avid birder and he loves it. There are beginner and experienced questions though so the whole family can play. Fun and educational.Published 19 months ago by Shawnee
I gave this game to my son-in-law and I doubt he will ever play it, tough questions, I guess if one played it often you would learn about the birdsPublished on May 10, 2013 by Kindle Customer
