Mattel to release Angry Birds board game this May

first_imgWhen developer Rovio decided to expand the platforms its ultra-popular Angry Birds game was available for, we expected all the usual suspects such as PC, consoles and Facebook. What we didn’t expect was a physical board game being created. That’s exactly what’s happening, with board game pros Mattel handling creation and release.The board game will be called Angry Birds Knock on Wood and will have support for between two and four players. As you’d expect, the pieces included in the set comprise of birds, pigs, a slingshot, and lots of structural pieces to make obstacles.AdChoices广告Gameplay consists of a strategy card game coupled with actually using the slingshot to fire your angry birds. As Electricpig describes: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. If you’re eager to play Knock on Wood you’ve got a few months to wait yet as it’s not out until May (worldwide). It also costs a bit more than the iPhone app does at $14.99. Unfortunately, there’s no online access for multiplayer, you’re going to actually have to interact with people in the real-world for this game.Read more at Electricpiglast_img
