Angry Birds Star Wars Jenga Death Star Game
#of Players: 1 – 2 Players
Age Range: 8+
Overall Construction: This game comes with 8 bouncy rubber character heads & an X-Wing styled slingshot. The frame and most of the pieces are a hard plastic. On my copy, the top piece that is supposed to help prevent the structure from falling apart doesn’t easily stay in place. There is a cardboard back that attaches to the parts and has the rules on one side and a chart showing which piece goes where in the structure. Each of the different pieces have a number inside them to help with building the structure. There is a solid base that the structure sits in. Lastly, there is a plastic die and a sticker sheet with the faces of the die on them. There is also a code for the App.
Gameplay: Gameplay is fairly simple after you build the structure. Remember to remove the cardboard backing before you play. The Stormtrooper & Darth Vader pigs will be placed in their cubby holes. The first player will role the die. What you role will determine which character you will launch and how many times you will shoot that character. You will be trying to shoot the pigs out of their cubbies and you will also be trying to destroy the Death Star. After the Death Star has been destroyed tally up the points and determine the winner.
Yes/No Recommend: I will say that I had a lot of hesitation about this game. I played the app, but wasn’t willing to spend the money on it. Thankfully a friend picked up this copy for me. He said that the only thing wrong with the copy was that the sticker sheet was missing. I was able to contact Hasbro to get the stickers. Their Support people were great.
I don’t recommend playing this in a place where they might have an issue with noise. Also, when we played it we didn’t pay attention to how many players there were supposed to be, so we were playing with 3 people. We noticed that it got difficult to turn the base and not lose the pieces from the Death Stars. Turning the base would be an issue whether you were playing with the correct number of players or not. I hope you enjoy it.
Where To Get It: This is one item that I will recommend checking at the Big Box retailers first. I will say that if you find it, it may be on clearance. You may also check online retailers as well.
