One Of The Best Digital Board Games For Switch Is Getting A Physical Video Game Release

The Wingspan Special Edition releases on July 31, but preorders are now open.


Wingspan first launched in 2019 as a traditional board game before releasing on the Switch eShop in 2020. Both versions were so well-received that the title is finally getting a physical Switch release on July 31. Preorders for the $40 Wingspan: Special Edition are available now at Amazon and Best Buy.

If you're unfamiliar with Wingspan, the goal of the strategic card game is to discover and attract birds to your wildlife preserves. Depending on how you build your preserves and what birds flock to your property, you can set off chain reactions that lure other winged creatures to you, earning additional points. The big draw is its stunning artwork, which faithfully recreates the image of each real-life bird and makes the game a joy to play on the big screen.

Aside from the upcoming physical release of Wingspan on Switch, you'll find the original Wingspan board game available at a discount. The physical expansions are also on sale, giving you plenty of ways to experience the unique board game for cheap.

Not sold on Wingspan? Here are a few other board game deals to peruse, including both games for Switch and traditional ones for your tabletop.
