A new board game, Fly-A-Way, will soon make it easier for you to play a part in bird conservation while having fun at the same time.

A Kickstarter campaign will be launched on Nov 23 at 9pm to fund the creation of the board game. Part of the proceeds will be channeled to support migratory bird conservation in Asia as well.

The game’s objective is to help a maximum of six birds cross the East Asian-Australasian Flyway to complete their autumn migration, facing manmade and environmental hazards along the way such as hunters and major storms respectively.

The game requires two to four players and lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.

“Players between 16 to 18 years old who tested the game enjoyed themselves,” said Tuber, the company which created the game.

“None of these bird species have been represented in existing games,” added Dr Yong Ding Li, BirdLife’s conservation officer who worked with Tuber to develop the game.

Fly-A-Way is a collaboration between Tuber, a design and editorial consultancy based in Singapore, and BirdLife International, a global partnership of conservation organisations.
