What It Is
What It Is
The Angry Birds Card Game is based on the popular app of the same name, though the play is quite different. In the card game, your challenge is to get rid of all your cards for a chance to take out the king pig by flicking one of the dice at him to get him to fall over. Each player starts with six cards that are placed on the table in a column. This is your "structure." On your turn, roll the dice, and if the bird pictured on one of the dies matches the bottom card of your structure, you can remove it. If you can't remove a card, you draw an action card that you can play on your turns and that will either help you or harm your opponent. Once you have gotten rid of all the cards in your structure, you can try to knock over the king pig. If you do, you win. If not, well, it's back to the cards. Winning takes a combination of strategy, luck, and physical dexterity. The Angry Birds Card Game is for two to five players. The game includes two dice, pig pieces, and game cards.
