Good idea but poor execution,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Angry Birds: Birds in Space Game (Toy)The premise of the game is simple. Build a castle, put pigs on it and try to knock down using the included catapult and the angry birds. The game includes handy cards that show various configurations to build along with how many birds you have to try and knock it down. You draw a card, one player builds the other tries to knock it down. After the turn is over players switch roles. Sounds like it should be hours of fun right? Well no. The problem is that whoever designed this game did a horrible job of designing the building blocks. The pieces are horribly balanced and trying to build anything but a simple configuration is an exercise in frustration. The pieces are mostly slim with rectangular bases and as you build towers up, they get harder and harder to balance. Quiet often I found myself rebuilding things because the pieces kept falling down mid-build. Since you don't get points for building the castles, and the whole point of the game is to knock them down, shouldn't they be easier to build so you can get to the fun part fast?
Save your money and avoid yet another poorly executed cash-in on a brand name.
