What It Is
The new Angry Birds Star Wars app comes to life with a line of toys and games from Hasbro. Players gear up to bombard Imperial hogs in the frozen terrain of Hoth with the Jenga Hoth Battle Game. The object of this game, much like in the app game, is to launch birds and knock down pigs to score the most points. Players take turns being the builder and the launcher. If you're the builder, roll the build die and create the structure shown. If you're the launcher, roll the launch die to determine how many tries you get to knock down the pigs. The launcher scores 1,000 points for each pig knocked completely off the structure. He also scores 1,000 points for any bird(s) left unlaunched (or any tries not taken) after knocking off the pigs. The launcher and the builder switch places and play again. This ends the first round. The player with the highest score after three rounds wins the game.
The game comes with a Luke Skywalker bird, two Snowtrooper pigs, a snowspeeder launcher, 12 translucent Jenga blocks, two dice, and a label sheet for the dice. The game is for 1–2 players.
Is It Fun?
The Jenga Hoth Battle Game really has nothing to do with classic Jenga. But it does mimic the gameplay of the Angry Birds Star Wars app and interprets it in a way that works as a real world skill-and-action game. Kids will like the build-it-knock-it-down competition, although it's also a lot of fun to build and launch solo.
