Hi, my name is Jamie and I am an Angry Birds-aholic.In case you have not heard of Angry Birds, it is a game app for your iPod and Smartphone and it is completely addictive. The point of the game is to sling birds (who are angry because the evil green pigs stole their eggs) at structures containing pigs in order to knock all of the pigs down before you run out of birds. I know it sounds weird, but trust me, it is so fun!
My kids also love Angry Birds, but since my iPod Touch shattered three days after I bought it, I no longer let them play it after getting it fixed. A nice alternative is the Angry Birds Game from Think Geek. Think Geek is just about the bet website for finding weird, fun, and unique items that feature pop culture gift items for every area of your life. The Angry Birds Game works very similar to the app version. Players draw a card and build the structure shown. The opponents then launch an Angry Bird
in an attempt to knock it, and the pigs down to win points.The game is for ages 5 and up and for 2-4 players.
Review: My kids were ecstatic when the game arrived in the mail. Okay, I was too. I was amazed at how much the pigs and birds looked exactly like the app version. My son, who is great at putting together LEGOs, found the structures fairly easy to build. I, on the other hand, have some serious deficits in the construction area and struggled a bit with the more complicated designs. The complexity of the structures was dependent upon the points it was worth. The slingshot action was challenging as well, but very fun. My kids did not play a single round without smiling and/or laughing. It proved to be a really fun game and I am thrilled that they are occupied with this and no longer ask to play with my iPod Touch.
Buy it here: The Angry Birds Game can be purchased from Think Geek for $23.99.
