Mattel is launching Angry Birds Knock on Wood, a board game based on the massively popular Angry Birds video game.
So how do you play without exploding animated birds and a touchscreen? The game comes with small plastic versions of the Angry Birds characters–both birds and pigs–as well as a slingshot and blocks for creating the pigs’ fortresses. One player picks one of the 56 “mission cards,” then the other player builds the structure shown on the card, which the first player has several turns to knock down using the birds shown on the card. The first player to score 1,000 points wins.
