Counting faster with Birds of a Feather

Counting faster with Birds of a Feather

How to get a higher score with ‘Birds of a Feather’.

The concept of the game is quite simple. Count the right birds and fill in how much you have counted. It’s like, 1..2..3..This may work for a while until……Time is up and gone are the birds. How are you supposed to even get a higher score?


Think about a dice.

It might sound a little bit strange at first but think about that you have just thrown a dice. After you see that you have thrown 5 or 6 you just play further with the game that you are playing. However, most of the times you do not really count the dots but you just know that you have thrown 5 or 6. That is because the brain has automated to see the dot-structure as 5 or 6. It is grouping them. We recommend this also with our Brain Game Birds of a Feather. Instead of counting them one by one, it becomes a mathematical calculation because you just add the groups to one another.


For example:

Count the green birds with the large wings. If you have counted correctly, you have seen that there are 12 green birds with large wings. However, you lack time when playing our Brain Game Birds of a Feather. Counting them one by one is not the right strategy. Group these birds like I have done in the picture below.

You see that there are 4 groups of 3 green birds with big wings. The calculation becomes, 4x3=12. This way it becomes way easier than it was before.


Play Birds of a Feather and try this strategy.
