How to Play

Backyard Birding is designed to be picked up and played quickly and easily. Once you learn the rules, a single game should take about 15 to 20 minutes to play through.


Check out our two videos below featuring game designer and project lead Jeff Morgenroth. In the first one, Jeff walks through the rules and mechanics of the game, offering explanations paired with a few sample hands of gameplay. In the second, Jeff plays through the game with an opponent to demonstrate the game in real time.
