Angry Birds flies off the screen and onto the tabletop
They’re fowls with a grudge and I don’t think they’ll be happy until they’ve taken over the toy world completely. It’s really something amazing. Angry Birds, the runaway iPhone app that’s coming to every single gaming platform ever conceived is now coming to tabletops with a board game edition. That’s right, the Birds have a grudge to bear and they want the family involved big time.
Developed by Mattel and Rovio, the board game adaptation has both sides of this vicious war including the green porky pigs and the Red, Blue and White birds complete with scowls. Players will get “mission cards” which will show how to build the structures to be assaulted. The other team uses the plastic model pieces to construct their porcine bunkers of death and then using the slingshots, players then fling the Angry birds in true fashion.
I just hope they include sound effects. That’s half the fun!
The game will launch in May for a paltry $15. There goes my Saturday nights!
