Tail Feathers from Plaid Hat Games is the exciting new miniature skirmish game by Jerry Hawthorne set in the beloved world of Mice and Mystics. Soar across the table, send your troops on dangerous missions, lock beaks with opposing birds, and defend your nest!
Villainous rats have allied with vicious hunting birds to pillage the humble mouse settlement across Meanderfield. But look! Brave mice, mounted on starlings and blue jays, swoop in to wage war against this evil alliance! The Downwood Militia soars into action against the Vermin Raiders!
Outwit and outfly your opponent in stand-alone scenarios, or play a full campaign and see your units gain skill from one battle to the next.
Shiny Games says about Tail Feathers
Tail Feathers is a wonderfully enjoyable miniature skirmish game like no other! It combines the aerial combat of X-Wing with the tactical use of ground troops to defend your home tree while attacking your opponent’s nest. It comes with all the miniatures, cards and card scenery required to play fully. This also includes Tail Feathers cards for the miniatures from the Mice & Mystics game, so if you own Mice & Mystics you already have extra troops for Tail Feathers.
The game also contains a campaign system that allows your pilots to improve their skill level as time goes on. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s suitable for ages 9 and up – so if you’re looking for a game that also appeals to the young ’uns in your life, give Tail Feathers a try. The base game box gives you plenty of components for a two player game, but with an additional set four player free-for-all or team games become possible.
