Yes folks, this is real as you’ll be able to play some Angry Birds in the form of little plastic pieces. That’s right, you’ll be launching actual figures of angry looking birds at the green pigs. Some time in May of this year, we’ll be seeing the release of Angry Birds: Knock on Wood.
The $14.99 game will come with 3 bird figures, 4 pigs, a slingshot launcher, 14 blocks, and 56 mission cards. It is a two player game where one player will draw a mission card and have the other player build whatever is shown on that card. The person who drew the mission card then must take the structure down for points. The first player to reach 1000 points wins.
While I have enjoyed some Angry Birds (and suck at it), this board game version seems legit and probably will sell. What do y’all think? You think they are milking the hell out of the franchise and this is crossing the line or does this seem like a good transition from video games to board games? Either way, it seems that Angry Birds will be doing what it can to get more people addictive to it in 2011.
