Best "Board" Game I've Played!,
This review is from: Angry Birds Space: Planet Block Game (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My wife remarked that it is a sign of times that cell phone apps are now made into board games. And indeed it is. Wary of low budget movie adaptations of video games, I was extremely skeptical of this product as just some quick way to cash in on the angry birds craze.
But once in a while, a mindless video game movie can be lots of fun (see Resident Evil) and apparently so can phone app board games! This game is a true gem! The premise is simple, you get a slingshot launcher, two angry birds, and several pieces of pigs and platforms. You draw cards, and construct platforms with the pigs perched on them as indicated on the cards and try to shoot them down by launching the angry birds. You get more points for shooting down more complex platforms.
To say that I had as much fun as my 4 year old child is an understatement. The genius is that each player can choose their level of complexity so the whole family can play.
My only minor quibble is that the manufacturer only supplied enough point cards to keep track of bonus points. I know you are supposed to keep the build cards to keep track of the points, but there is something satisfying about holding a stack of point cards. Would it kill the manufacturer to print a few more point cards? Jeez ...
