The Swift-Start Promo Pack includes first-round walkthrough guides and specific new bird cards to use with them. For those who already own Wingspan, the swift-start guides are still helpful for teaching new players, and the 10 new cards can be shuffled into the bird deck.

In Winter Court, two rival diplomats plot how to advance their agendas during winter when a medieval court is confined by bad weather to a single castle. Should you approach the royals directly, or should you curry favor with other court members first? Their powers could be useful in influencing the royals to your cause.
Hmm...the steward's purse could gain you extra influence, while the lover could sway that love-sick, sighing Prince to your side. The knight could be a valuable ally to gain either the ruler's favor or the interest of that military-minded Princess. Even the scheming charlatan or the fool's sarcastic tongue could be valuable assets.
Where to begin? Who to approach first?
Spend your influence wisely in this card game of manipulating a royal court.
