Tail Feathers is such such such a smart and beautiful miniature game! All the tiny details fit completely in the rich theme of the game and a part of us is holding back -not- to paint the impressive miniatures. Why won’t we paint them? Time and discipline! We’ll end up painting two or three miniatures and the rest will look boring in comparison. Luckily for us, the miniatures even look cool without a layer of paint. 😉
Just like in the comic I was rather surprised that the game is not more popular. We do think it is rather complex, not that it is very difficult, but there is a lot to consider for players while playing. Then again, I think the game becomes much easier and quicker when you play it more often. So I guess that’s just what we need to do! It’s way too much fun to fly around with those big birds and measuring the range with a stick that looks like a magic wand. Wingardium Leviosa!
Oh yeah, we’ve beaten the first scenario of Robinson Crusoe, hah, take that.. game! We managed it after three tries. It was a matter of finding the right strategy and having a little bit of luck. We’re curious about our next adventure. We’ve reduced the setup time of the game quite a lot with our self made insert. I’ll make sure to show pictures and show you our other insert-project in next week’s post.
