Soar Into Battle!
Tail Feathers takes place in the story-rich Mice and Mystics world, where valiant mice and their friends brave adventure and battle villainous rats in story-driven scenarios. Tail Feathers situates an innovative head-to-head flight-battle game in the Mice and Mystics universe.
Check out some of the coolest gameplay twists in Tail Feathers below; read the rules linked to on the right for a full description.
Tilting Flight System
At the beginning of each round, players set their birds' tilts, indicating their intended flight direction for the turn. When your bird is activated, it has a chance to adjust its tilt (according to its pilot's skill), and then glides on variable paths in the direction it is leaning. Different birds come with different stats and abilities, and interchangeable pilots with their own unique characteristics and action cards offer immense variability.
Send Ground Troops on Missions
Included ground troop miniatures, as well as the well-loved Mice and Mystics miniatures, aren't left behind, fighting alongside the birds and pilots! Ground troops run across tree branches, float across the battlefield on leaves, and make their way through the air being transported by friendly birds. Send your ground troops on dangerous missions each round, rescuing birds and pilots, attacking target birds, besieging the enemy tree and intercepting other mission teams! But be careful, because a swoop attack on your mission could spell disaster!
Classic Mice and Mystics Flavor
Tail Feathers comes with ten(!) custom Mice and Mystics dice, identical to and interchangable with Mice and Mystics and its expansion. Also returning is the opportunity to collect cheese and spend it for special action cards. And the Mice and Mystics story is back too--four highly replayable and customizable scenarios are built-in which can also be played as a campaign with unit progression.
Big Heavy Buckets of Theme
