Angry Birds has long been a favorite of most kids and even adults, and they have come out with a new game that will certainly become a treasured game in most houses. Angry Birds Go! Jenga Pirate Pig Attack takes the Angry Birds craze and mixes it with a well-known and loved game, Jenga, to create an adventuresome game that kids are sure to love.
In this game, the pirate ship is set up in a very Jenga-like way and those ornery pigs are defending their fortress. The two players each have their own car (either the red birds or king pig) along with slingshot launcher that they launch at the ship and try to knock down the pieces and pigs. You earn points based on what you knock down and the highest points wins! This is a fast-paced game and is over pretty quickly so they can play again and again.
Setting up the pirate ship is difficult, I won’t lie there, because it has to be very carefully set up and falls apart fairly easy because it’s supposed to at game time. My 12 year old can do it (if he musters all his patience), but my 6 year old cannot. This game is recommended for children ages 8 and up, so bear in mind that, if you buy it for young children, you will be doing most of the set up yourself. My kids really love launching the cars and knocking the ship down; they really couldn’t care less about points. They enjoy playing the game and it’s quickly become a favorite of theirs.
Angry Birds Go! Jenga Pirate Pig Attack Game can be purchased at the Hasbro Toy Shop and at many major retailers nationwide for approximately $29.99. Right in time for the Holidays, this game is currently promotionally priced at $12.99 on Amazon.
Also look for ANGRY BIRDS GO! from Rovio Entertainment, a recently released mobile game app for Android, iOS, and Windows devices.
