RaklarLS: can't wait for the australia and new zeland expansion, so we can finally play kakapos
GeneralMemery: I'm a corvid man.
Juliamon: Chickens aren't terribly bright, as they are
chaostreader: ^
Loonatic93: Domesticated Turkeys are incredibly dumb!
iiieye: when do we find out who is the imposter bird?
soupgiraffe: turkeys are very dumb
emonotony: @iiieye The birdtrayer?
grimsmoke_: ???
asthanius: Chickens are not street smart. They're also not book smart.
chaostreader: Welp. I meant to ^ at corvids are smart.
DeM0nFiRe: turkeys are weird to me because I feel like they should only be in like wooded areas, but also I sometimes see them in downtown of a major city and idk how they even get there
PharaohBender27: @asthanius But are they coop smart? Kappa
DigitalSeahorse: !players
korvys: My favourites are Crows and Ravens, a choice that may have been predictable, based on my name.
Seagulyus: oh Juliamon you're here. can I link the "setup and how to play" article for wingspan?
Juliamon: Yes, please!
ogier300: I like magpies
asthanius: @PharaohBender27 They don't even know what a co-op game is lrrBEEJ
Loonatic93: @DeM0nFiRe Because of the Park Biome. Much like with Goose and Deer.
iiieye: I'm hungry for fried chicken now
RaklarLS: you just click on them and they float a bit more
gnome_friend: Birds are excellent creatures
sasschad: We have no issues using it mouse only
PharaohBender27: @DeM0nFiRe I remember being in grad school in Boston and seeing turkeys even along rather heavy-traffic streets
Alex_Frostfire: Cowbird sus.
DeM0nFiRe: PharaohBender27 Yeah Boston is what I was talking about haha. I occasionally see them at like South Station
Haroldholmes25: Is it not highlighting?
DeM0nFiRe: Which is like about a mile or so from a park but it doesn't seem like a particularly turkey friendly park
RaklarLS: maybe accidentally picked the 5 resources?
Seagulyus: "From the 5 bird cards that you were dealt at the beginning of your turn, keep as many as you want, discarding at least one food token for each bird you decide to keep. Then look at your two objective cards, keeping one and discarding the others
emonotony: korvys I nowadays live in a region with very few birds, just the occasional magpie and sparrow. And turns out I miss jackdaws the most, by a lot.
Radyin: Thank you @Seagulyus I thought I was the only one who didn't know how to play. The players seem to be assuming that everyone is already an expert at it.
Seagulyus: each bird has a habitat and food icon on them, a points type, nest type, and egg limit
PharaohBender27: @DeM0nFiRe My grad school was in the Backbay Fens area. I remember going on walks into Brookline and seeing like a family of turkeys in a little park
emonotony: korvys Now that I think about it I think the jackdaws liked me because I always fed the cats, and the cats were pretty poor about finishing the meal.
Ignatiuspants: all I know about this game is that they're choosing birds now
Seagulyus: habitate is where you can place them, food is when you need to spend to play them (so where and cost)
DeM0nFiRe: I don't think I've been to that area yet
Seth_Erickson: !players

Ritaspirithntr: And Ian.
A_Dub888: !findquote puffin
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
LariatWest: Roseate Spoonbill best birb
Ignatiuspants: ooh ... good birbs
asthanius: "Why is it called a Spoonbill?" *points at the bill*
Seth_Erickson: I recognized those voices just not sure if there was someone else who had said anything
Ritaspirithntr: Are penguins in here?
RaklarLS: not yet
RaklarLS: there's american and european birds so far
PharaohBender27: @DeM0nFiRe If you keep waling southwest past Fenway Park, you get to the area I was at, and Brookline is north of that across the T tracks
gnome_friend: @Ritaspirithntr these are just North American birds I think
Loonatic93: @DeM0nFiRe Something to keep in mind. Wild Turkeys can semi-fly. They have an above average intelligence (for birds). And there aren't any predators to worry about. Dogs and cats are just too small to take on a turkey, and anything bigger are driven off. Well, except for the coyote-wolf hybrids.
Ritaspirithntr: surely this game would be better with penguins!!
eatkins95: This feels like crossing the chillpoint.
Ignatiuspants: are there penguins in the game?
gnome_friend: @Ignatiuspants once they add southern hemisphere, hopefully
Ignatiuspants: ooh...!
DeM0nFiRe: I just noticed the turn timer appears to be 24 hours. Gonna be a long stream LUL
RandomTrivia: Snow (r)Egrets...
ContingentCat: I wonder how many tits are in this game
Seagulyus: oh okay the cubes above Ian's food tokens are his action cubes. the tokens below it are eggs/food tokens.
gnome_friend: @ContingentCat I believe two chickadees and two titmice are in the NA version
gnome_friend: @ContingentCat oh, and plus the bushtit
PharaohBender27 sees what @ContingentCat did there
DeM0nFiRe: Loonatic93 Ah interesting. I've never seen turkeys fly, just seen them usually as a family walking around slowly
Ignatiuspants: nice!
thrythlind: back, what did I miss?
Seagulyus: action cubes on your turn can be spend to play a bird on your turn, gain food tokens, gain eggs, or gain bird cards from the deck
ContingentCat: @gnome_friend ah good it's always good when they come in twos
Seagulyus: spent*
gnome_friend: I was hoping to see a Baird's sparrow this summer, but didn't have quite enough time in the area
RaklarLS: go right after
Loonatic93: @DeM0nFiRe It's short range flight. They can get up to low trees and such.
emonotony: @PharaohBender27 I got stuck between the usual joke, and the $player_count_here joke
nerhydas72: this music is great
sasschad: <message deleted>PLAY WITH A MOUSE ITS SO MUCH EASIER
Despoiler98: The spoonbill is a flamingo with squished beak :D
thrythlind: that seems similar to most animals, actually

Juliamon: Chat, let's not backseat OR use all-caps.
hpsauce103: The Birds!
RaklarLS: the bird facts are also written at the bottom of the cards, in the physical version
ContingentCat: @PharaohBender27 that's a good one
Haroldholmes25: That's just an overview so you can look at all zones at once

Radyin: @DeM0nFiRe I had a mother turkey and two juveniles walk through my yard earlier this year. They chicks flew into a tree and the mother looked quite annoyed at them.
xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx: @PharaohBender27 don't forget the blue footed booby!
Seagulyus: oh okay the reason the "lay one egg" isn't active is because you need to spend one action cube to get an egg...and then it places a counter on his bird which gets him an ADDITIONAL egg

SmithKurosaki: BIRB
Dragonality: Ok, who was that playing the Flicker deck?
PharaohBender27: @emonotony Yeah, never mess with a crow - they did an experiment where someone wore a mask and harrassed crows, and anyone wearing that mask afterwards was attacked by crows, even ones who *weren't present at the initial altercation*
gnome_friend: @RandomTrivia GBW, I think, forests, plains, and wetlands
RaklarLS: bant cube, look at the left side of the screen @RandomTrivia
LariatWest: In the future, activating the row with your bird is now better
PharaohBender27: @xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx I'm actually unfamiliar with that one
Seagulyus: PharaohBender27 crows have some damn long memories
Seagulyus: PharaohBender27 its exactly what it sounds like :P
DeM0nFiRe: Radyin I think I might still have a 3D video of turkeys that walked through my backyard that I took with my 3DS. No idea where that sd card is though haha
SmithKurosaki: @gnome_friend Are there GW or WUG birbs?
Izandai: Oh shit this game is great!
Twilight_Spark: Birds are a government conspirac.y
gnome_friend: @SmithKurosaki there are definitely WUG birds, like Derevi, the original BIRD WIZARD
PharaohBender27: @Seagulyus I like to half-joke that crows are the humans of birds - they're smart, they're social, and if you give an inch they'll take a mile
RandomTrivia: I remember that part of The Matrix, where the Oracle talks about programs that runs birds...
SmithKurosaki: nice
Izandai: How are they playing this?
Haroldholmes25: Steam game
Loonatic93: Well, corvids are pretty good. But parrots are starting to move further and further north. They could easily overtake the corvids niche if they ever forced to compete.
coachNelly: @Izandai its on steam!
Izandai: ty

gualdhar: is a platypus a bird?
ContingentCat: @Seagulyus yeah I heard people doing experiments on crows would wear disguises because before after being released the crows would harass the students on campus
PharaohBender27: @Seagulyus Just looked it up, and not going to lie, I did not expect the feet to be quite that shade of blue
gnome_friend: @gualdhar no, it's a monotreme
Loonatic93: Nope... Mammal.
Juliamon: !unsubscribe bird trivia
ApodoNuevo: You can right-click to see the trivia!
Armyguy0: Yes but Ian eggs is a hard coded bird thing, but not all birds fly @LoadingReadyRun
Loonatic93: How do you know, Ian?
Seagulyus: ContingentCat always be nice to crows
RaklarLS: they were fondly preyed upon
Izandai: @Armyguy0 Exactly.
Seagulyus: PharaohBender27 yeah they are derpy looking birds in general
Loonatic93: Eaten a lot of dodos in your time have you?
Izandai: But of course, there are non-bird creatures that lay eggs. The real Identifying Bird Thing is having feathers.
SmithKurosaki: @Armyguy0 Like the Stephen's Island Wren :)
Juliamon: I like most corvidae, but blue jays are on my shit list for being real dicks to the other birds here
gnome_friend: @Izandai and even that wasn't identifying 70 million years ago
e_bloc: as god as my witness, I believed turkies could fly
gnome_friend: @e_bloc wild turkeys can
62MGcobra: "falling with style"
Izandai: @gnome_friend Very true.
lord_wertornion: Wouldn't any bird taste great after months at sea?
Armyguy0: turkies CAN fly
BasilHunter: wild turkeys can fly, not domesticated
soupgiraffe: I was convinced for the longest time flamingos couldn't fly
ContingentCat: Peacocks can fly it's just hard
gualdhar: turkeys will fly far enough to fuck the closest human being up
RandomTrivia: Peacocks are just lazy
Seagulyus: e_bloc short distances they can
Lightningbro: Fun fact; Dodo's WEREN'T delicious. They were actually really bland and boring, HOWEVER Dodo's in Tortoise stew were delicious (Both of them contributed to each other's extinction/endanger)
Loonatic93: @Juliamon Jays are part of the corvid family?
lawful_neutral_wizard: I've definitely seen a turkey fly over trees before.
Armyguy0: but only the wild ones
PharaohBender27: @Juliamon Don't share quite the same emnity, but that scans and I respect that opinion
chaostreader: Can someone quote Ian saying “Dodos are delicious” matter of factly.
gnome_friend: Hollow bones
Juliamon: Loonatic93 I just learned it the other day!
Izandai: @gnome_friend Although... Maybe it was. Maybe it's just that back then the birds were more similar to the other dinosaurs.
emonotony: The jackdaws were always a delight because they kept the yard fairly clean of annoying things.
e_bloc: maybe I'm old but I thought someone would recognize the WKRP quote :/
gnome_friend: @Izandai A whole lot of non-bird theropods also had feathers
Loonatic93: @Juliamon And now I just learned that today! Thanks!
Izandai: @gnome_friend Oh, nevermind then.

PharaohBender27: @Seagulyus Oh so it's not just geese that regularly mess up jet engines? TIL
Seagulyus: PharaohBender27 nope turkeys used to be the problem. geese are now
gnome_friend: Turkeys and geese were almost extinct in the early 1900's but have recovered spectacularly
Loonatic93: I don't get the whole angry geese meme. Swans are far more aggressive and are capable of far more damage.
Armyguy0: Turkeys good, geese ehhh
Armyguy0: and BUS Swans
Juliamon: Loonatic93 Geese are far more common
Loonatic93: You grab a goose, and they aren't doing much of anything.
gnome_friend: I LOVE watching woodcocks dance!
UnbanTwyn: Really looking forward to the new ep of Heat Death coming up on Monday. Got caught up this week, Cam is crushing it
PharaohBender27: @Loonatic93 But they're *pretty*, so people overlook what jerks they are
DeM0nFiRe: gnome_friend It is surprising to me to hear Turkeys got better considering we have a holiday dedicated to eating them
Loonatic93: That's fair.
chaostreader: Is there some indication whose board we are looking at that I’m missing?
Izandai: @DeM0nFiRe Well we can't eat them if they don't exist.
monosceros: but then you get real dark and you get to look at them whippoorwills

NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: @UnbanTwyn you know that the dice friends coming up is a rewatch of eps 3&4, right?
ApodoNuevo: The kerning on the Flicker cards are a bit dangerous
Armyguy0: farmed Turkeys and wild Turkeys are not really close anymore
DarkMorford: I've considered getting a budgie or something as a pet, but I also want to get a cat at some point and I don't think they're compatible.
Sarah_Serinde: UnbanTwyn Monday is a rerun of eps 3 and 4, the Monday after that is a new episode
Armyguy0: wild Turkeys will Bus you up
Juliamon: We had a pair of swans on our pond for several years, but one of them's been missing for the last few years. They generally leave everyone well enough alone... the migrating flocks of Canada geese, on the other hand, tromp up the hill into the island proper and shit all over the road.

Fanklok: @coachNelly Did it even need the scarf?
PharaohBender27: @RandomTrivia Oh God that reminds me of how in my middle school (which was the roughest part of my life for different reasons), the principal would do an address over the PA system each morning, and he kept bringing up how geese fly in a V with a leader, and *you* could be that leader. He did this everyday to such an extent it was essentially treated as a joke amongst the students.
thrythlind: the seagull railgun
CaptainSpam: Crunch your teeth! Oh, wait, wrong reference...
coachNelly: ehn it was close with th e puffin sans scarf
Seagulyus: PharaohBender27 which is funny because it isn't actually one goose's responsibility. it is a shared task that cycles
emonotony: You will have a critical mass of birds eventually. And then you want to keep a few million miles of distance.
RandomTrivia: @PharaohBender27 Pffft. What Seagulyus said too
RandomTrivia: That's a really weird ritual
Izandai: @PharaohBender27 That definitely sounds like the sort of thing a principle might do. He probably came up with that analogy one day, and he thought it was super clever and inspirational, and just no one ever told him it's kind of goofy and that if he says it every day it'll become VERY goofy.
Fanklok: Now I want to see an angry zen master video but it's this game instead
Izandai: @Seagulyus PrideLaugh Beautiful.
Seagulyus: see, the front goose is the only one actually doing work. the vortices it leaves behind actually makes it so the geese behind it just coast along without doing work
TheWriterAleph: !findquote bird

Armyguy0: angry burb master?
PharaohBender27: @Seagulyus @RandomTrivia Yeah, years later I realized that a huge flaw in that analogy is that there can only be one leader - there also need to be followers.
gnome_friend: There's no such thing as an "evolutionary ladder"
gnome_friend: It works more like a weird bush
Izandai: @PharaohBender27 That's another problem, yeah.
ContingentCat: oh like how minecraft has everything come from eggs
Seagulyus: PharaohBender27 it still works if you look at it as each goose takes turns as the leader; thats not true though
PharaohBender27: @Izandai Yeah, I think he only stopped because his son was a student and at some point said, "Dad, this is *embarrassing*"
Seagulyus: literally one goose is doing all the work and the rest coast along doing nothing

ApodoNuevo: I make that same mistake a lot. I wish they emphasizes the brown/white/pink backgrounds a little more on those abilities so you're more sure of what's up.
ContingentCat: lrrHORN Hummingbird!
Seagulyus: HahaGoose
Izandai: Yet another problem is that the "leader" in a migrating flock isn't actually doing much leading I don't think? All the birds know which direction they're going, the formation is just to reduce the total effort the flock expends.
PharaohBender27 sneaks away for dinner
thing_1_of_2_c: You've drawn birds? I raise. I taught a bird to play video games.
thrythlind: Matt, I had some discoveries like that with the digital version of Sentinels, although admittedly, a lot of those discoveries was "Wait, this card does WHAT? crap that's strong!"
gnome_friend: Ian, I'm guessing you have a different species
Fanklok: Hummingbirds are cracked out wacko's that fight each other and if they stop eating for longer than 15 seconds they die
gnome_friend: Ruby-throats are currently in Mexico and Central America
Seagulyus: Izandai something something natural compasses allow them to follow the currents
gualdhar: oh man, I saw two hummingbirds fighting over the feeder in my backyard every day
shadowmaster132: Hummingbirds don't sleep, they hibernate so they don't starve to death overnight
emonotony: Izandai I think "you could be the only one working hard for no good reason" is extremely relevant to school, but maybe not the message they want to send.
Izandai: @Seagulyus Re "one does all the work": Just like school projects.
ContingentCat: really? My mom get a bunch of humming birds on her the lilac and butterfly bushes and they're pretty chill
Izandai: @emonotony PrideLaugh Exactly
LizardDucks: My parents have four hummingbird feeders around their house just so they can see them dogfighting.
gnome_friend: @shadowmaster132 it's really amazing that some are able to migrate across bodies of water without starving
lirazel64: Hummingbird feuds are aMAZing
ContingentCat: but maybe west coast hummingbirds are different
Seagulyus: Izandai exactly
Fanklok: @shadowmaster132 They enter a state called torpor not quite hibernation, more like sleep mode for your electronics
DeM0nFiRe: One time I was walking to class and I walked down a street I had walked down a ton, usually no one else on tha street. Once there was just like hundreds and hundreds of whatg I think were crows in every tree and then eventually all flew away at once
RaklarLS: autumn starts and we start waking up with crows chilling in our balcony every morning. It'd be cool if it didn't look so menacing
gnome_friend: @ContingentCat Yeah I think because there are more western species there's more competition
Izandai: @Seagulyus I think it's mostly tiny magnets in the brain and eyes that let them calculate the angle of the sun's rays.
sasschad: My other half lives for the funny noises the birds make
Earthenone: "draw bird cards then brown powers in this habitat will activate" is that a threat?
MennoKnight42: i heard a hummingbird for the first time and it freaked me out, it sounded like a very large, angry bee right behind my head
Loonatic93: I'm warning you all fellow American northerners. The parrots are expanding their range north. They are going to take over everything. They're as smart as corvids and have much better tool use abilities.

Seagulyus: Izandai yeah it was something like that. iron fillings in their blood or something
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: you don't want to sleep on food.
Kreiseler: well crowd have 4 pinions on their wings. ravens have 3. you could really say its all a matter of A PINION
Izandai: @Seagulyus Something like that, yeah.
TheWriterAleph: how good is Gilded Goose in this meta
Kreiseler: #gotem
Seagulyus: Kreiseler ughhhhhh I hate it, thank you
Izandai: @Kreiseler A classic bit.
emonotony: Kreiseler Wow the lazy joke on chat being unruly was better for once. That's new.
Loonatic93: @TheWriterAleph Naw.... It's all about the Storm Crow. "For Value."
MennoKnight42: i was wondering about that
MennoKnight42: you could have done both!
lirazel64: I can only draw m-birds.
Dog_of_Myth: Storm Crow is too strong for this meta
gnome_friend: I guess Fish Crow is kind of like Storm Crow
Seagulyus: Loonatic93 why not the Storm of storm crows? a Storm Crow for each spell cast this turn!
gnome_friend: !card crow storm
LRRbot: Crow Storm [2U] | Sorcery | Create a 1/2 blue Bird creature token with flying named Storm Crow. / Storm (When you cast this spell, copy it for each spell cast before it this turn.)

ApodoNuevo: Ratstro..naut... no, never mind
RaklarLS: also don't forget two any resource count as one of another, if you need
DeM0nFiRe: That makes me curious what the highest altitude birds normally fly at is
emonotony: A place to eat freeze-dried mice does sound like a vomit comet.
gnome_friend: @DeM0nFiRe Some crane and goose species migrate over the Himalayas
Twilight_Spark: 2020, "Surely they've put birds in a vomit comet", what a concept.
Armyguy0: You just need to go slower
Dog_of_Myth: @gnome_friend Beat me to it
Dr_fragenstien: I'm an intense G
ContingentCat: Franklin's Gull was bothering me wondering which Franklin they were named after and it was the one I was thinking of, the explorer John Franklin who kept trying to find the Northwest Passage, apparently they found the first specimen of the bird on one of his expeditions
LordZarano: The video of birds in 0g is pretty interesting
DeM0nFiRe: Google says teh highest altitude bird is Ruppell's Vulture at 11,300 meters
DeM0nFiRe: Which is super far below space, interesting
Seagulyus: (for my US friends that is 7 miles)
Izandai: It might flop about amusingly.

Loonatic93: How??????
e_bloc: :D
Dog_of_Myth: *high-fives @e_bloc *
Kreiseler: those birds are rookie numbers, gotta get those birds up
gnome_friend: Hummingbirds will sometimes arrive early and feed on sap and insects from Sapsucker holes instead of nectar
gualdhar: I wish hummingbirds would eat the damn spotted lanternflies...
LariatWest: You have 1 fewer turn next round
RaklarLS: everything carries over, but in particular, the mistakes.
ApodoNuevo: The only thing that changes between rounds is the three cards in the "pond" get discarded and three new ones come out.
LariatWest: The game has fewer, but longer, turns as the rounds go on
e_bloc: that is a deeply personal question Matt
gnome_friend: !findquote egg

LRRbot: Quote #6674: "It's all about fork-lifting for Snake Juice now" —Ian [2020-01-04]
thrythlind: eggs are great
ContingentCat: ah yes the Mayan god, that'll solve things
RaklarLS: crows are the egg converters
Izandai: Oh I would love a mythological expansion to this game so much.
thrythlind: there's an LG variant of yuan-ti in Eberron that are feathered snake people
gnome_friend: Quetzalcoatl/Kukulcan
Dog_of_Myth: Serpent bird gods sure.
TehAmelie: so what fresh madness is this game? God plays dice with birbs?
Lightningbro: Well, tips of your tongue, Quetzalcoatl have forked tongues.
Izandai: Quetzalcoatl, the sphinx, the griffon, the gryphon... Quite a few options.
TehAmelie: and possibly badgers?
Izandai: Although I guess it's questionable that all those lay eggs.
e_bloc: all I want out of life is for Quetzalcoatl to be an onomonpedic bird
thrythlind: Kukulcan is Maya, I think (maybe Olmec)...and isn't actually connected to Quetzalcoatl
gnome_friend: ^
gnome_friend: @thrythlind well, they're based on the same feathered serpent god idea
ContingentCat: huh
Earthenone: full nest with egg sounds delicious
LariatWest: Birds that have a bowl nest with an egg on it
thrythlind: not really, they have similar iconography....but apparently they developed from different roots
RaklarLS: birds with bowl nests, with egg in it
until_may: nom
Izandai: Fun fact: Quetzalcoatl falls into that frustrating space of being so incredibly popular and well-known in his time that we know almost nothing about him now.
ContingentCat: what other kinds of nests are there, aren't they all bowls
Izandai: Because people rarely wrote anything down about him because anything they would write is something that everyone would just know anyway.
gnome_friend: I thought they both came from a previous Toltec god
RaklarLS: bowl nests, with an egg bedding, rice, and mushrooms.
asthanius: Do not father the cherry
JoelJohnsonCranidos: wifiS wifiS wifiS wifiS
JoelJohnsonCranidos: Hi Ian!
Izandai: And he's so incredibly OLD as a deity in that region of the world that any kind of origin point for his myths has been completely lost to the ages.
gnome_friend: That got introduced to the Itza Maya and also passed on to the Mexica
thrythlind: An acquaintance of mine from the Scion 2e is a German PhD student specializing in Central American/South American cultures and he knew a LOT about the Aztec and such...it's just there's not much actual info that gets to the public
TehAmelie: hummingbirds regularly pick fights with animals 17000 times their size
SilentOptimist: one singular tone sustained for 12 seconds
MAPBoardgames: One note. One tweet. Twelve seconds.
gnome_friend: And then Kukulcan also spread into the K'iche Maya as Q'uqumatz
thrythlind: I think the Toltecs were so ancient that even the Aztecs didn't know much about them

ContingentCat: same
Yolysses: angry fairies
asthanius: @thrythlind They're not as old as the Olmecs, are they?
gnome_friend: I wish we could see a top-down view of everyone's boards
gnome_friend: It's hard to follow this visual format
Seagulyus: gnome_friend this is the only board
Earthenone: its the birds wheat now
LariatWest: You don't. It's just points
azureHaights: Nu-thatch? I'm more of a plan of industrial thatch myself
Izandai: That's the bird's wheat.
thrythlind: not sure, I'm aware that there's a couple of cultures that were already lost when the Aztecs were in early development...not sure whether that's Toltecs or Olmecs
Seagulyus: the problem is "do we show the specifics" or "make it so you can see everything at once on scree"
Haroldholmes25: He can switch to other players boards, which can be confusing if you don't catch the switch
thrythlind: I thought it was Toltec
cdutson: bird is technically food
sasschad: If you cache it, it’s only end game points. Some say you may cache and you have the option to decide to keep it to spend.
azureHaights: *fan
Seagulyus: Haroldholmes25 wait each player DOES have their own board?
Armyguy0: That owl looks done
gnome_friend: @Seagulyus in the board game there are separate boards for each player
Seagulyus: thats confusing then
LariatWest: Unfortunately no. The type of food cached is for theme/flavor. Mechanically it's just a point per thing on the bird
TehAmelie: i'm sure i'm the last one to notice but i do love the art style of the game
Seagulyus: gnome_friend yeah sorry that is confusing sorry
Clypheous: Wingspan is a computer game too?
Armyguy0: That owl is looking like "You pull me and you don't even play me?"
asthanius: @thrythlind They both definitely predate the Aztecs, I just remember the Olmecs being super old distinctly from my history classes for some reason
Izandai: @Clypheous Apparently it's on Steam!
Juliamon: Clypheous Just came out recently
Haroldholmes25: @Seagulyus Yeah so if you see the background style change, that's a different person
Seagulyus: ooh okay thank you
Seagulyus: btw chat don't forget that Sega released a few free mini games on steam
ContingentCat: gross
Dreamlettuce: Saves time
Clypheous: @Izandai @Juliamon That's cool, this is an awesome game.
Izandai: It's so good!
thrythlind: @LoadingReadyRun Curious, while you were teaching in Japan did you ever do a sports day and win a sweet potato?
ContingentCat: no, it sounds gross
Izandai: I've only been able to play one game but it's so good.
chaostreader: You can tell which board Ian is viewing at the top. There is an eye symbol that appears below the board he is viewing.
gnome_friend: @asthanius I think the Olmec were slightly older and farther north than most Maya groups, and the Toltec were contemporaneous with a lot of Maya groups and earlier in the same area as the Mexica/Aztec Triple allianceAlliance in aro
Earthenone: you search for a card with the same CMC as the card you pitch
LariatWest: Ian - placing the second bird in a habitat costs an egg
Clypheous: So who all are we crossing the streams with today?
Seagulyus: I think you trgigered your barn owl ian
gnome_friend: @Clypheous Wheeler, Matt, Nelson, and Ian
sasschad: You have to pay an egg or eggs to play any bird beside the first one per habitat
asthanius: @gnome_friend That's bringing back some school memories. Makes sense, thanks!
biosomniac: Oh boy, I'm doing a PhD on australian birds and Wingspan is one of my favourite games. Nice to see it getting played!

SilentOptimist: wait!? 46 cm!??
ContingentCat: wow
TehAmelie: lrrWOW
Seagulyus: oh geez it gives 9 points?!
asthanius: Ah, it takes the Dune approach
gnome_friend: There's one dance to trick worms and one dance to attract mates
asthanius: It dances without rhythm to call worms
Izandai: Many points but no effect. A standard class of card for a game like this.
LordZarano: The technical term for someone that only eats rodents and plants is "Roditorian"
kalira77: Tremors

Simonark: I am hope?
gnome_friend: @NarwhalsInATrenchcoat exactly now imagine them covering an animal's body
ContingentCat: @asthanius just a miserable pile of secrets
gnome_friend: @Simonark you are hoopoe
PharaohBender27: OK now I feel like this whole exchange is actually a reference that is whooshing way over my head
gnome_friend: !card hoopoe
LRRbot: River Hoopoe [GU] | Creature — Bird [1/3] | Flying / {3}{G}{U}: You gain 2 life and draw a card.
asthanius: @ContingentCat Ohhhhh I know miserable and secrets. That makes sense.
Dandinstorm12: hey chat
chaostreader: @simonark Is that a Sandman reference?
Dog_of_Myth: *high fives @ContingentCat *
gnome_friend: !advice
LRRbot: Give your George Stick a little wiggle.
Izandai: I looked away for three minutes and chat has apparently gone completely off the deep end.
Simonark: Yes?
asthanius: @PharaohBender27 No reference, just lifelong students expanding their horizons with such concepts as "birds" and "feathers" and "Man"
NotCainNorAbel: Were we ever in the shallows?
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: @Izandai As opposed to how it is when watched closely?
gnome_friend: We were in a cave
Dandinstorm12: Plato's Cave?
Izandai: @MyClosePersonalFriendJohn Fair enough.
PharaohBender27: @Izandai Yeah @NarwhalsInATrenchcoat asked what I thought was a one-off joke question, actually tried to play along, and now I feel like there's some meme at the center of all this that I just don't know
TehAmelie: mmm Sandman. the "hope" line gets so delicious after Overture
gnome_friend: @PharaohBender27 Not that I'm aware, it just seems like a fun format of joke question
Izandai: @PharaohBender27 I wouldn't be so sure. I think some people just committed to the joke way harder than you were expecting.
asthanius: @PharaohBender27 tbf, that's how you get a meme
Dandinstorm12: So not Plato's Cave then
Izandai: Certainly harder than I would've expected.
Dandinstorm12: k
PharaohBender27: @gnome_friend OK HahaSweat Thought I was out of the loop there

StreetRach: How are you playing this?
e_bloc: unreal
Armyguy0: Are we looking at a 3 owl Ian?
Kreiseler: boo this man
Simonark: Theyre all married terns?
Aylig: completely unnecessary
Dandinstorm12: @asthanius well, all proper nouns are, by definition, made up
TehAmelie: panic voice: words are made up by people
gnome_friend: THey have to
gnome_friend: If you're trying to catch a bird so far below you you have to be able to see well
A_Dub888: !findquote bard

CururuGuasu: The Tri-owl-mverate
LariatWest: NOW you played your Owl
PharaohBender27: Yeah, the Spotted Owl debate was a HUGE issue in Oregon in the 1990s
Juliamon: gnome_friend The problem with descriptive names is shared descriptions. Like the red-bellied woodpecker, which has a red head but is not the red-headed woodpecker, that's a different one
TehAmelie: Lyre birds love logging. or at least it loves mimicking the sound of chainsaws
TehAmelie: well, any sound
chaostreader: Ian. You need another bird that can only be in Forest.
space_turbulence: This makes me so happy
gnome_friend: @Juliamon Yeah, the red-bellied woodpecker was poorly named, but there are so many features on each bird
TehAmelie: i believe the word for a flock of owls hanging out with one hummingbird is a "buffet" of owls
lirazel64: And then there's white-headed sparrows and white-throated sparrows...
gnome_friend: Or you can do it by geography
e_bloc: when I was, a young boy

Dandinstorm12: I'm getting the shell of this joke, but I'm not yoked to the direction it's heading
SquareDotCube: would it bear fruit ever Easter?

LariatWest: Forest eggs?
RandomTrivia: I'm kinda sad no-one has played an extra tern spell yet
LathosTiran: "I've CHOSEN the large cup"

TehAmelie: the flying fish is a liar

TheNerdWonder: I'm surprised Wheeler hasn't started concocting a bird-themed horse joke yet
DarkMorford: I'm not sure I got that pun. The delivery was a little scrambled.
CompSciJedi: Some fish have upgraded their ladders to SALMON CANNONS
StreetRach: I'm a big fan of the dickcissel.
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: @gnome_friend Thank you, I did not know that word. I will now be using that.

Juliamon: pigeons are great
PharaohBender27: What happens if someone doesn't have a "favorite" bird, though? (Sorry, this touches on a pet peeve of mine)
Izandai: I quite like Peregrine Falcons, in no small part because of My Side Of The Mountain and its sequels.
TehAmelie: and hammerheads and sawfish? surprisingly uncooperative for carpentry

Izandai: They really are.
asthanius: A pixar-mom pigeon
ContingentCat: Pidgeons are so good. There's a rooftop across one of my windows and I love watching them up there.
Izandai: I like a book series where nothing really bad happens to anyone.
gnome_friend: Jean Craighead George wrote so many great books
RandomTrivia: Pigeons are amazing, because they're so damn stupid and somehow they thrive everywhere
Izandai: Also those books are so old?????
DeM0nFiRe: Sometimes pigeons will ride the subway where I am

lirazel64: Yup.

Tiber727: I have to say though, compared to the board game, I have no idea what's going on with the UI for this game.
TehAmelie: tfw you try to make birds and they just want to sit on your lamp and try to hatch the lightbulb
PharaohBender27: @Izandai Right, I think that's from that Live episode where lrrBEN , lrrIAN , and lrrKATHLEEN were trying to see who could attract the most ducks with whatever food they chose. And lrrBEN chose Cool Ranch Doritos
Izandai: @PharaohBender27 PrideLaugh Spectacular.
MaxLSilver: I never have any idea what's going on in this game, but the music makes me not care.

gnome_friend: Oh, the blue-winged warbler?
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: Two "members" down... was that intentional?
KyubiStormMage: Dick ebert was normal ebert
