Tail Feathers

Plaid Hat Games is proud to present Tail Feathers, the exciting new miniatures skirmish game by our very own 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!

Featuring the beautiful hand-sculpted miniatures by Chad Hoverter Mice and Mystics fans have come to love, Tail Feathers raises the stakes with 13 dutiful ground troops, 5 headstrong birds that tilt for launching and turning, plus 5 daring pilots. Players will recreate the famous battles for aerial supremacy that shaped the Mice and Mystics world.

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.

  • Story driven campaign! Tail Feathers includes a scenario book with story rich scenarios all designed to be played either as both stand-alone experiences or linked together as a campaign.
  • Unique and challenging flight system! Tail Feathers includes 5 beautiful bird miniatures that are mounted on a special flight stand that allows the birds to 'tilt'. This tilting is a mechanism used to determine your flight direction, but the skill of effectively maneuvering your birds is up to you!
  • Everything you need! No empty box here. Tail Feathers comes with enough content for two players to field fully-realized, battle-ready forces, as well as cards that allow you to utilize your Mice and Mystics: Sorrow and Remembrance figures as Tail Feathers ground troops right away.

So since there is no Tail Feathers forum at this point and time, I'd like to ask a question on the amount of players that can play this game. It says 2 players (expandable) But what is needed to expand to more players? Do I need multiple copies to have more birds? or does adding the mice and mystics set add more players? I understand that this is a standalone game/battle system, that can be played on it's own, but are the scenarios cooperative or competitive in nature?

Looking forward to this, and would like to preorder because of the lost chapter, but... Will european preorders be shipped through Europe? Customs and taxes or not?

Can someone please tell me how large of a play surface is required? It is not clear from the posted rules, as I am assuming setup is covered in the scenario book. Need to understand the play space needed - thanks!

NK: You could play with more than 2 with the base game plus M&M, but the birds would still be kind of tight (1 or 2 per player). 2 Base Sets would open up your optons.

Jt: Shipped from Germany. No customs to EU if you choose Special Shipping.

osg: The recommended size in the scenario book ranges from 32"x32" to 34"x34". Of course this could vary based on your space.

NinjaKnight: The scenarios included are competitive with two sides opposing each other, so that would lend itself best to team games (if more than 2 players). However, you can play free-for-all battles with more players if you like, depending on how many figures you have available.
As Joe mentions, if you have the Mice and Mystics: Sorrow and Remembrance figures (Tail Feathers has all the material needed to use those figures in TF battles), then playing TEAM multi-player games is very viable with just one base set.

Reading the rulebook has me very excited. Though I'm going to have to read it many more times I think to fully wrap my head around it -- there are a lot of little rules scattered all over the place.

Any chance we're going to see a scenario posted? I think that would go a long way to alleviating some of my slowness is grasping all the rules and make it easier to picture what is going on.

So the box comes with stats for the minis in Sorrow and Remembrance, but given I see no indication of it supporting Heart of Glorm and Downwood Tales out of the box (except for the bonus Lost Chapter for preorder, but that is for M&M not TF) am I right in assuming these two M&M expansions aren't going to improve my TF game for now? (I expect cards will be made for these eventually.)

Grungebob commented:

We do plan to eventually add cards for all figures from all M&M releases.

KAM commented:

XDarkAngelX: They might not improve TF at release, but they will certainly improve your Mice and Mystics.
And you're correct--the Lost Chapter is for Mice and Mystics.

I cannot seem to find any "Special Shipping" during checkout, as "joepinion" responded was usable for us European customers, instead I get a USPS for ~$60.

This probably isn't an acceptable theme song for this game considering kids love the M+M universe, but...

Just preordered, woehoe. Now the long wait 'till it arrives.

Ps: I ordered from Belgium and was able to select special shipping, to bad it still cost me and not being able to use my playtest coupon for that.
