Build, launch and destroy with the Angry Birds: Knock On Wood Board Game. This exciting skill-and-action game, based on the best-selling phone application, features three Angry Birds, green pigs, one slingshot-style launcher, structure pieces and mission cards. Players draw a card and build the structure shown before their opponents launch an Angry Bird in an attempt to knock it, and the pigs down to win points. The game is suitable for 2 or 4 players aged from 5 to adult.
Play your favorite app game in real life with the Angry Birds: Knock on Wood Game! The age-old battle between Angry Birds and the egg-stealing pigs continues, and the birds will have their revenge. Draw cards, build castles, and knock them down in this hands-on version of the touchscreen hit. First one to 100 points wins!
Hands-On Version of the Touchscreen Hit
The Angry Birds: Knock on Wood Game brings all the fun of the touchscreen app to a new, tactile playing field for two to four players. This game follows the same goals as the online version: launch the Angry Birds toward the egg-stealing pigs' wooden castles to destroy them and advance to the next level. With three Angry Birds, four pigs, a variety of "wooden" pieces, and a bird launcher, you can now bring the same action to your living room.
Build, Launch, and Destroy to Win
Play consists of drawing cards from any of four levels, building a structure on the card, and then knocking it down. To play, you draw a card--the higher the card the more points possible to earn. Give it to the next player to build that card's castle. Then, use the bird launcher to shoot it down with the birds indicated on the Mission card.
Go Crazy with Wild Cards
Our testers enjoyed the challenge of playing within the game's rules, including the ways the structures can be built and the birds that can be used during particular launches. They also had fun with the special fourth-level mission cards that allow for freestyle building for more creative play. They enjoyed experimenting with the distances from which they could shoot the birds toward castles. With so many possibilities for hands-on play, this game will keep you and your family and friends occupied for hours!

First, the good stuff:
PROS: The rules are simple, easy to explain to younger children, and you don't have to know how to read to figure things out, so that's also great for little ones.
The birds, pigs, catapult, and the structure pieces all seem pretty sturdy. Plus my five year old likes to just play with the game pieces as action figures. We only got this game because he wanted some plastic Angry Birds to play with and this was the only thing we found that fit the bill.
The game builds coordination and (hopefully) a little patience in the best case scenario. But that leads me to the cons...
CONS: This is more a downfall for folks like me who can't stand tedious projects :) but I get a little frustrated trying to build the structures shown on the level cards sometimes. They are supposed to be grouped according to difficulty, but some of the Level 1( ie: allegedly easier) structures are just as difficult as the Level 2 and 3 ones. There are some I think might be impossible to build at all based on the law of gravity, although my husband disagrees and says with enough balance they're all possible.
I'm kind of a fumble-prone mom and I spent more time knocking down half-built structures with my clumsy hands than with birds at first. If you have a child who doesn't have much tolerance for slow, meticulous projects then he/she might be annoyed trying to build the structures.
As far as the actual shooting the birds part of the game, that takes some getting used to and is actually a lot harder than on the Iphone app. in my opinion. That said, it is doable. My five year old and eight year old are fans of the game and have already played with it a lot. One tip: make sure you keep up with all the pieces because losing even one or two of the logs or blocks will seriously hamper your ability to complete the structures on the cards.
Granted, the catapult isn't as fluid as the app version; at times the birds would veer off-course, but it's still loads of fun. My nephew created his own towers without looking at the cards. He enjoyed putting up the blocks even though it took a bit of time. In my opinion, this game spurred his creativity. He uses the minature angry birds as his own little action figures.
At times, I caught him creating his own little storyline on how the green, evil piggies stole the eggs. His only gripe was that he wished the game came with the white, blue, and green angry birds. I'm slightly disappointed Mattel didn't include all the birds. All in all, this is a fun game. Since receiving it today, he's been playing it for two hours straight. If your child loves the app, then s/he will surely enjoy this game.
My youngest son received this as a gift, since he was so into electronic version.
We've played it as a game a few times. He decided he wanted to combine it with our Kepla/Keva/Citiblocs collection. It's great fun to build with the blocks then shoot it down with the slingshot and angry birds. Since then the Angry Birds Game is that is stored in our Big Tube of blocks. They haven't played the game again as the "game"
For those who don't know Kepla blocks are thin strips of wood that are about 3" long about 1" wide. They are without print providing a blank canvas to build whatever they can imagine. The kids play with them several times a week now, in the beginning they didnt play with them that much. After watching a few videos on YouTube of adults playing with them they took off.
Back to the Game it's self.
The FUN Factor well it is fun as a game. It's knocking stuff down my little meeples love that. Kids can learn a lot about physics in the building of structures and from the demolishing arc of the angry birds.
Replay... as the way it was intended to be played I don't know it's morphed into it's own game/toy our home. Few times has it followed the rules with only the pieces included. So, I am honestly not sure. I think that the replay value would have been limited if it had not morphed.
Personally, I am just glad they use the pieces in such a free form way. I like that every time they play they make up their own rules/story for that session of play. I would strongly recommend buying some type of complimentary block set that can be played along side this.
The Components themselves are a sturdy plastic. The angry birds fly nicely and are a lot of fun for the kids. The sling is holding up so far, which considering it's plastic moving parts I am pleasantly surprised. The cards are run of the mill mid grade cards.
The box is flimsy at best it was designed to be seen not restore. We cut out the graphics and used clear shipping tape to tape them on the Top/Ends/Sides of a Sterilite Clip Box. I like using the shallow version of the Sterilite Clip Boxes for stuff like this.
The art and design on the box was average. The pieces are a well designed, visually fun and really they are what creates the 3D real life version of this electronic game for the kids.
NOTE: I tried adding in some little angry birds that were not game pieces but smaller plastic/rubbery balls they did not come close to comparing to the sturdy weight/durability of the pieces that are included with the game.
Overall. 4.8 (adding in credit for Toy/Game Play)
