My boys and I were given a the opportunity to review the Angry Birds Star Wars Millennium Falcon Bounce Game (try saying that three times!) and a cute Stormtrooper Foam Flyer Pig! That guy has really been flying around the livingroom!
First of all, the game is pretty simple to understand. It says ages 8+ I assume because the Angry Bird pong balls can be choking hazards to little guys, but honestly my Tot was not going to be left out of any game that had a ball involved and he had a blast. He had so much fun that he refused to let his big brother (who the game was intended for) have it back.
My teen and I set it up. The instructions are very simple and the stickers were quite capable of adjusting without ripping, in case you can’t get them right the first time. I mention this for those that are OCD like me and really cannot stand having off placed stickers on a game! I also really want to give lots of love to Hasbro for being creative with the box! The box is actually involved in the game as a backdrop and there are stickers to make it look like outer-space. I thought it was such a clever way to include every piece of the game and really give the Millennium Falcon some ambiance.
The game is intended for the table and the object of the game is to bounce the ball on the table and have it hit the Millennium Falcon. If you miss, you don’t get to re-shoot the ball during the turn and if you knock over a pig without it bouncing off the table first, you have to reset it before taking your next shot. There are 5 pieces that sit on the Millennium Falcon as objects to bounce off for extra points and three Angry Bird balls (red, yellow and brown) for your turn. The point system is as follows:
- Knocked Down Pigs: 1,000 Points each
- Ball in Center Target: 3,000 Points each
- Ball in Cockpit: 5,000 Points each
The first person to score 30,000 Points wins!
Or if you happen to have a toddler, you just have to steal the game and run off into the livingroom with it.
Judah has also tried to throw the other new toy we reviewed, The Angry Birds Star Wars Foam Flyer Stormtrooper into the Millennium Falcon. I don’t believe I have to explain that he does not fit.
The Foam Flyers are really soft and squishy, kind of like a stress ball. My boys like to play catch with him or bounce him off the walls. I think it would be really fun if you had multiple Foam Flyers and then you could attack each other like Angry Birds! Think of it as a Live Action game.
Also, each of these items comes with codes for in App Content!
Even though the Angry Birds Star Wars Millennium Falcon Bounce Game is pretty simple as far as games go, what makes it fun is the family. Hasbro has always supported Family Game Nights and getting together with my kids, trying to bounce a little Angry Bird into a Star Wars Millennium Falcon before my toddler steals all the balls and runs off creates one hilarious evening for us! If you take the time to set aside an evening to play with your kids then you’ll see how enjoyable this game can really be!
