My experience, insights, problems that I have encountered when I have played my own angry birds board game.

My experience when I have played my own angry birds board game.

The angry birds board game has the official name of angry birds knock on wood board game. This board game was created because of cooperation between Mattel a big toy maker and Rovio which everyone knows is the video game company that has created Angry birds among other video games.

Out of the box, the angry birds board game is different from other board games I have played before. First, there is no cardboard box board in the game and there are some objects included in the game that I can't believe belongs to the board game genre.

As I figure it out, the angry birds board game is really not a board game even if it is categorized as a board game. It is more of an interactive toy like simon game because you will interacting with the toy will deduce the outcome of who will be the winner unlike real board games that you only bankrupt your opponent or defeat them.

The angry birds board game's instructions are simple that even small kids can understand them. The cards are perfectly explained and the rules for the game is simple that you only need to glance at the instructions and you already know how to play the game but what is hard with the game is how you can build the structures illustrated on the pictures.

The structures illustrated on the cards are the pig's structure that is the same as the pig's structure on the video game but in real life. While game developers might not have a problem balancing blocks in terms of finding the exact middle so it will not topple by itself. In real life, you don't have that luxury. When I have first played with my angry bird board game, I have to recreate the structure a couple of times because of clumsiness and the balancing act I have stated before. While it might not be the flaw of the game or the blocks, it is a fault on developers thinking that what is easy on the digital world will be as easy in real life.

The birds and pigs are cheaply done. They are made of plastic that seems to be casted because they are not perfectly smooth in some places. The birds is better but the pigs are worse. Making the pigs stand up will be a drag.

Slingshot that was given with the angry birds board game is too strong in some cases or you would need to have a long table to play with. First time I have played with the slingshot and I overshoot my structure. The second time I tried the slingshot with less power and it destroyed the structure without any trouble. This would make this angry birds board game a too easy of a game.

My experience with my new board game is a not that good but the idea and the thought given to the making of this game is okay with the angry birds board game.
