Mattel has taken the popular online game Angry Birds and turned it into an offline skill-and-action game. The Angry Birds Knock On Wood Game is a tabletop game that plays pretty much like the popular smartphone app. The pigs have stolen the birds' eggs, and the object is to destroy the structures where the pigs are hiding. But with Knock On Wood, one player draws a mission card and builds the structure shown. The mission card also lists what birds to use to shoot down the structure. Using the guidelines on the mission card, another player loads the required Angry Birds onto the launcher and catapults them to knock down structures and pigs and earn points. The first person to 1,000 points wins.
