Even on an iPhone, Angry Birds sounds like a stupid idea. Flicking birds at wooden structures to kill pigs? Seriously? But then you play it and you cannot stop. Angry Birds as a board game sounds like an even worse idea... but it's coming, but will it be as addictive as the iPhone game?
Angry Birds: Knock On Wood is due from Mattel in May. It will cost $14.99, but doesn't require an expensive phone or tablet to play. Here's a brief description of how to play:
Player One pulls a mission card. Player Two then builds the structure shown on the card for Player One to attempt to knock down to score as many points as possible. The first to 1,000 points wins.
Sounds interesting, but slightly messy. Do you really want to clean up all those tiny pieces that will inevitably find there way to the floor.
