This review is from: Angry Birds Card Game (Toy)
My 6 year old son got this as an early Christmas present.

HOW IT WORKS:
The game as two sets of cards, the power cards and the structure cards. Each person draws 6 structure cards and chooses how to line them up in a stack and each person starts with two power cards. On your turn you roll the dice, you need to roll the bird on the structure card at the bottom of your stack to remove it (knock it out). The structure cards are either a bird or a pig. If its a bird you have to roll the color of the bird on one of the dice. If its a pig you have to roll two of the same color bird. The dice have 5 different colored birds and a wild side with all the birds on them. If you fail to knock out a structure you get to take a power card. The power cards let you either give the opponent one of your pig cards, make the opponent take a new structure card or force a re-roll (either for you or your opponent). When a person knocks out all their structure cards they then get a chance to try to knock down the cardboard standup pig by flicking the dice at it. The first person to knock the pig down wins.

PROS:
Once you get through the slight complexities of the rules, the game is a fairly simple one. There isn't a lot of strategy, so my 6 year old was able to play with no problem. It's mostly lucky, with some strategy around when you play the power cards.

CONS:
There isn't much here that is going to occupy an older child or adult. Also, knocking down the pig is fairly simple for someone older and more coordinated but much harder for a younger child, so this somewhat unbalances the game in the favor of the older children if you have very varied ages. One solution is to let the younger child put the pig closer.

OVERALL:
Not the most innovative or captivating game I've played, but I was pleased to find it wasn't just angry birds slapped on an existing game. It is different and my son really seemed to like it. My son took extra special glee in forcing me to re-roll when I had rolled to knock out my last structure card. I would say this game is best for ages 5-10.
