The 3 star score must be 150,000 in my eyes.

Anyways, this is a little hard level so good luck everyone! ;)

I just found out that there is a Golden Egg in this level!

Just throw Stella, Red or Matilda backwards at the top of the mountain and you’ll find it! :D

I hope this helps. :)

I got my high score by flipping Stella high arc to land on left side of vertical spruce tree. Stella flips left UNDER kite string and picks up flatbeds. Red through top of gazebo and falls onto little annoying pig. White bird bombs flatbeds at juncture. This gets 155000 consistently and isn’t as hard as @greybrow53 or @Alan Dennis versions. IMHO. Good luck. Merry Xmas to all and to all a good night ?

Hi @hunnybunny & @redbird123. I got the egg unexpectedly on my first shot, and it’s hidden in the cave. I threw Stella to the front pig on the tree and as her bubbles picked up pieces, the engine of the train disconnected, went into the cave and revealed the egg. The caves here are like the “transporter mechanisms” in Abra-ca-Bacon. Whatever goes in one end comes out the other.

The reason I couldn’t see what was going on was because of the Tele-Bird and Shockwave icons.

I totally agree @redbird123 that those awful icons block the view. Happens on a lot of levels and it forces you to play zoomed out, which I don’t like to do. I actually don’t find them useful as I never use power-ups. I was very vocal about this after the “egg snatcher” update, and asked in a comment on Seasons Back to School 1-18 if there was a way to disable/remove them, but there isn’t of course. Really bad design which spoils game play in my opinion.

You’re right @peejaydee27.

You know what I hate the most about them being put near the pause button?

Sometimes I accidentally press the Shockwave or Tele-bird power-ups and its either not needed or I get 3 stars on the level.

If only they were put in the power-up line together with the other ones because they’re technically power-ups right?

The key to this level, for me, was to fling Stella so she just cleared the top of the left structure. When you get that right she will hit the wreath in the second carriage from the right enabling her to pick up lots of debris. After that, it’s all down to how much damage gets done when the TNT explodes.

The way it’s worked for me @fatboyslick if you get Stella right and she hits the wreath she should pick up most of the second carriage and drop it. Around one in three times, one of the two small metal sections above the first carriage will drop triggering the second lot of TNT. The rest is down to luck!

@greybrow53 Happy holiday flinging! I’m coming through this game a little later than others and your strats have been golden until now. I can pin a point accuracy strat, but this one only ever clears the right side for me. Occasionally some of the left side will clear, but nothing that has me saying… now I see it! Is there some other minute detail I’m missing? (other than being several days late to the game?)

Hi @abcrazy. Glad you’re enjoying the strats. This is a weird one. From memory I had one go where most of the right cleared and the left carriages were dislodged so when I used small red at the left structure (I threw at the join between the roof and the uprights) some tipped forward and dislodged the rest of the carriages which fell down the ravine while some went backwards, taking out the present (3000 points!) and also hitting the remainder of the rails underneath.

One bird bonus for 168k+

Hope that helps.

Thanks @greybrow53 I finally got over average with some patience using your gnats pixel shot. Left side was still pig populated, but I noticed the hut debris doing the vibration dance after I hit it with red. I let it sit a few minutes and eventually the stop sign fell along with the wood and several chunks of road. Finished with Matilda. So, not a fantastic score, but for anyone else struggling with this one, a little patience can help.

By SweetP (@sweetp)Score: 161,290

This was the best strategy for me, thank you @greybrow53! I agree with everyone this is one of the toughest levels to 3-star in the entire Ski or Squeal episode!

Although it was easier to launch Stella in a high arc over the kite rather than over the top of the first structure to get to the wreath. It took me several frustrating hours of flinging before I got it right!

I didn’t see how it happened, but something hit the vertical wood piece holding the bell and the whole structure fell off to the left. That cleared the way for Red to skim off the first pig and onto the flatbed, dropping the remaining debris down the gap on the right.

Finally got my 3* and above averge score, and happily moving on and not looking back!

Also, I highlighted your comment as an alternate strategy.

I’m so sad that the tools and hints provided in this level have NOTHING to do with how to score 3*! There’s a cave with a backward connection and an exploding stove at the mouth of the cave with Stella. Yet throwing the stove INTO the cave only gets me the egg. Blowing the caboose is not helpful. There’s a STOP SIGN at the front of the train. But moving that stop sign (and other metal stoppers in the way does not let the whole length of the train fall off the cliff? It even gives me access to the stop sign from below with a Matilda to make it happen. I have a feeling this level fell victim to what writers call the “Sunday Night Ending.” Your story starts out rich and well fleshed out then you realize, at midnight Sunday, that it’s due on Monday so you abandon half your ideas and [email protected] the ending. So I guess I’m going back and just fling a bird halfway down a train at nothing clever. Sigh.

@petra-kalbrain I have had a problem with two different levels now (although not this one) where Stella doesn’t have the power she should. You need to reset the level and maybe restart Seasons. There may be more invasive things to do that might be necessary, but I was successful with the restarts.

Another Strategy for me 164k so far with a fair bit of debris left – Stella straight up and only half speed so she goes through the red flag coming out of the pig above the stop sign pick up all the metal most should go to the left and take out the wooden structure with the lights on – 2nd bird through the kite to hit the tree on the last train – the trains should start to move and all fall and the engine move through the tunnel and blow – 10k bonus more to come this way

Good Luck

Thank you for sharing the strat @alan-dennis, improved score by 9k but I used 3 birds. After my second bird, the trains didn’t move so I sent Matilda and dropped her egg on the pig on the middle train which forced Matilda to bounce back off the cliff and hit the little house. Had only 156k but it took a while to register 3 stars and more debris started to move and it all slid off to give me 167k. Left with 4 pieces of debris. So I’m guessing points come mainly from the stone blocks (that make the train tracks).

I got my score (170870) using the strategy of @greybrow53, that is just over the left structure, so that Stella hits the wreath. Two carriages on the right dropped, and the ones on the left started moving but stopped. Then I hit the left structure with red bird and everything started moving again and dropped partially. You can see in my screenshot that part of the carriage did not fall, so I am a bit surprised I got top score. http://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/annach/album/picture/17423/

I know I don’t have the highest score but I’ve gotten a few good scores a few times now by sending Stella in a high arch and having her land on the left curved branch of the vertical spruce tree, then tap for her bubbles. She’ll push the top half of the tree right to cause the right most train and cars to drop…meanwhile, she’ll grab the wooden train section and some wheels with her to drop everything but the left most pig. Here’s a screenshot of the trajectory and remaining pig/debris:

I then sent Red straight through the gift…if you’re lucky you’ll get the 3K points while the top wood tumbles right to take out the remaining piglet…

I’ve got this to work a few times now…but you can also send Red BACKWARDS through the tunnel and he’ll come shooting out the right cave and land on the pig but you need to get it just right or you”ll lose the 3K gift points and wood debris points ;-)

I don’t think I can be much help, but here’s my tale of woe and luck:
For hours I played GreyBrow’s pixel accurate strat, only leading to the conclusion that my flinging is anything but pixel width precise.
I dabbled with Alan Dennis’ lob into the leftmost tower with equally poor results. No, much worse results.
So I scrolled down the walk through and saw a high lob mentioned. Not reading properly I thought it meant high lob into wreath, not the same strategy as the walk through.
Ten minutes later, “boom” the whole thing just blew apart. I was aiming for the centre of the wreath, but whether it hit there I can’t really say. Mr Bunny had distracted me, probably moaning about how much time I “waste” flinging angry birds at thieving porkers.
However, I know exactly what I did with little red. All that was left was the hut and the present on the leftmost tower. In previous attempts to increase my woeful early scores, I had perfected that shot. Hit the hut about a third of the way up the left wall, making all of the structure and present fall left and into the abyss!
And I agree with Stocktoad, these levels are hard

Ha ha ha ha ha

OK, enough fantasy. I shot Matilda (that’s who you meant, right Mrs. Bunny?) at the wreath. Right two train cars destroyed. Red at the horizontal supports of the left building at reduced power. The wood fell on the metal structure to the right of the stop sign agitating it. After a few seconds it exploded allowing the left train car to fall into the abyss. I started to shoot “Stella” at the remaining middle train car but as I saw I had the top score already, I resisted. So higher scores are definitely out there.
