With the rising sun, the songbirds begin to sing. In this magical forest, the loudest songbirds claim the ripest berries and prime nesting spots.
As a forest spirit, you help your favorite songbird color prosper in secret. Each turn, you’ll place one songbird with a specific volume into the forest. The volume of each songbird will add to those of the same color in rows and columns. The songbird color with the loudest volume wins the berry token in the respective column or row. If there is a tie, the songbird color with the next loudest volume wins.
When the whole forest is filled with songbirds move on to end-game scoring.
At the end of the game, you reveal the last remaining songbird card in your hand. This is your favored songbird and you score the points that the songbird color collected in berry tokens and add in the volume of your favored songbird. The player with the most points wins the game! The game involves some bidding and bluffing but there is nothing inappropriate for younger players, yet there’s enough strategic choice to challenge adult players as well.
