Angry Birds IRL

Angry Birds recently turned 6 years old!

It’s hard to believe it’s been around so long!  In case you’ve lived under a rock for the past 6 years and are not familiar with the game, Angry Birds is a fun little game in which you use a giant slingshot to hurl birds in an attempt to squash all the little green pigs.  (This explains why the birds are so angry.  I have no explanation for why the pigs are green.  I call them pigfrogs.)  Frequently, the pigfrogs hide behind rock walls, inside wooden boxes or under glass roofs.  (The cowards!)  You must discover the best bird-flinging angle for each task.  

There are a number of specialty birds in addition to the average red bird.  Yellow “Biggerize” birds biggerize when you tap the screen.  (Yes, of course, that’s the official name.)  White birds drop eggs because they already look like eggs with beaks.  Blue “Instantaneous Offspring” birds split into three tiny clones of the original bird when you tap the screen.  Black “Fall Down, Go Boom” birds… Well, you get the idea.

In honor of this auspicious anniversary,

Fountaindale Public Library District is pleased to present:

Live Action Angry Birds

February 10, 2016     *     3:30 – 5:00 P.M.

Calling all Architects and Anarchists!  

Do you like to build things?  Do you like to destroy things?  

Now you can do both at your library!  (Insert evil laugh here.)

You can practice physics by writing long, complicated  formulae…

or you can fling birds at green pigfrogs and test gravity the fun way!

Bring your friends!  Form a team!  Conquer the Pigfrogs!
