Angry Birds Board Game
Advantages: Hours and hours of fun to be had with this.
I purchased this Angry Birds knock on wood game for my son last year from Ebay at £10 brand new, RRP is £20 for this but it can be found on many online stores cheaper.
Broxi take note of this review for your up coming Angry birds party
My reasoning for buying this for to kill two birds with one stone or rather two pigs with one bird. You see my son had months before his birthday seen an Angry birds cake on you tube and it was a playable cake which he loved. As his birthday drew closer I had hoped he had forgotten about it as I like to make his birthday cakes but nope he had remembered and only wanted this playable cake complete with catapult to shoot the pigs. I was saying to a friend I was worried about spending so long trying to make all the pigs and birds and she told me the previous year she had brought this game and used it to put on a boys birthday cake. So by getting this game it would not only be the topping for the cake but also an extra pressie for my son.
The game itself is aimed at aged 5+ and can be played by 2-4 players but easy enough for one child to play along with. The contents of the game are-
3 Angry Birds, the yellow, black and red one
4 green pigs
1 bonus points star
1 bonus points egg
I bird laucher (fancy catapult)
14 building blocks of various shapes and sizes
40 mission cards and 16 points cards.
If you have no idea what Angry birds are you need to Google as they aren't your average birds with wings. These drop bombs, explode, inflate and do all sorts of crazy things. It's hard to believe this all started out as a animated phone app.
There are 4 different levels to try out with this game and with 40 mission cards it is taking my son a while to get through them. My son more often then not plays this solo and picks a card which has a structure picture on it and you build the structure as the card shows and place the green pigs in their places as shown then you use the bird launcher glorified catapult to launch the birds at the pigs. You score points for the pigs you knock down and for parts of the structure knocked down. Playing with other people you build your structure and the other players score points when they try to destroy it. You gain extra points when knocking off the egg or lucky star symbols too.
The birds are made from solid plastic which rightly needs to be strong as these are being fired about. The green pigs are also plastic, not so solid but light weight but have been taking a beating fine and lasting well.
The glorified catapult as I call the bird launcher is on a green plastic base and you place a bird into the launcher part and it can be pulled back until you have the angle you require and then release it to launch the bird hoping they will make contact with the structure built with the green pigs on it.
The building blocks are also made from a light plastic and are various shapes such as rectangle, square and triangular. They are easy to handle and build with and sometimes I find it just as fun building the selected structure as it is to try to knock them down.
So my verdict of this game is that it's great giving many hours of fun and enjoyment. I must admit that I'm glad it can be easily played with solo as well as with other player players so I don't always get roped in to play it.
As for the birthday cake it was a huge success. I had wrapped up the game after taking out the birds and pigs for the cake, so when my son opened it he looked at me puzzled when saw some was missing and then I took him to see his cake which I'd been up til midnight the previous night finishing. I'd built the structure from kit kats and blue ribbon bars and placed the birds at the front with the launcher and pigs ready to be knocked off the structure. I didn't however allow an extra 20 minutes at his party for all the kids to have a play on it before I could start taking slices out of it lol poor parents were left waiting.
So there we have it, a versatile game that can also be used for cake design.
Summary: A fab game for ages 5-105. hours of fun and is versitile to be played with alopne or 2-4 players.
