Fire Bird is the second board in Sonic Shuffle. It is a location within Maginaryworld born from the dreams of those who enjoy flying and freedom, and the dream world of Tails. Void has imprisoned the high-flying Fire Phoenix in a mechanical shell, and the heroes must collect Precioustones to set the phoenix free.
Players travel on the back of the Fire Phoenix, who is encased in an airship-like shell. They must be careful where they go as they traverse the board, as chunks of the ship can explode and break off at any time; any players standing on these chunks when they explode will lose a lot of Rings. Landing on a forklift space will summon a forklift to transport a player to another space on the board. When there is only one Precioustone left to collect, the lights dim and many of the spaces on the board will transform into Battle spaces, making the board far more treacherous as players will be fighting a lot of monsters.
At some point during the game, the ship's engine will leak, and all players have eight turns to reach the quest space to patch it up. Whoever gets there first will win an Emblem at the end of the board.
