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.
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.
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.Read more ›
Since I Christmas was just a few weeks away (and I knew this would make a great stocking-stuffer) I told my son we'd have to hold off on getting it. We have started the family tradition of celebrating St. Nick's around December 6th, and so this was the gift we had included in my son's stocking. He was THRILLED to get it! In this day and age of expensive video games, I thought it was pretty cool to be able to find something for less than $10 that would create such excitement.
Of course the true test would be whether or not the game was actually any fun to play. At first glance, I was expecting this to be just like UNO, only with an Angry Bird Theme. But after reading the rules and playing a few times I was quite pleased that this isn't a clone of UNO and it does a good job of putting the Angry Bird elements into a card game.
The object of this card game is to discard all of your structure cards and be the first person to knock down the King Pig with a flick of the die!
The Set-up is Simple:
The first thing to do is to place the King Pig into the provided stand. You don't need him right away so you can just set him to the side for now.Read more ›
The good news:
It reinforces the basics of game play for those still learning those skills (taking turns, picking cards and discarding them, rolling dice, understanding wild cards) and the good news is that the game is simple enough so that the little one can play without having to reveal his cards to get help. He's happy to play for awhile and likes to make up his own rules (which range from stacking the deck, to special powers for birds of certain colors, to changing the meanings of the Power Up cards - such as +1 really means you give 2 cards to the other player).
Oh yeah - and it doesn't involve screen time, which in this day and age, is not a bad thing.
The bad news:
Not much thinking required from anyone over the age of, say, 5 or 6. And at the end of the "strategic" card game, there is a lame final stage where you physically knock over a cardboard pig by flicking ("not throwing") one of the dice at him. This last step feels like an afterthought (as if getting rid of your cards wasn't enough), but is somewhat of a real-world analogy to knocking over the virtual pig by slinging a virtual bird at it. So I can't stand this step (too many nights spent retrieving wildly-flung dice from under tables, couches, beds, and newspapers), but again, the little one loves it.
