Angry Birds Knock on Wood is a real-life two-four player Angry Birds-inspired game from Mattel where players get to launch plastic birds at pigs for real. It’s much smarter than it looks and won’t hit the shops till May 2011! Read on to discover why we want it now.
Based on the insanely popular mobile game Angry Birds, this latest take on the addictive title is a charming tabletop game where two players compete for points.
Players build obstacles, complete with replica birds and pigs from the game before catapulting them into a blocky mess. Here’s the clever bit. It’s also a card-based strategy game. Player One pulls a mission card. Player Two then builds the structure shown on the card for Player One to attempt to knock down to score as many points as possible. The first to 1,000 points wins.
In the box you’ll find three Angry birds replica figurines, four pigs, one slingshot launcher, 14 blocks and 56 mission cards. Angry Birds Knock on Wood will cost $14.99 (about £9.70) and won’t be in shops till May 2011 worldwide.
