Angry Birds Seasons Year of the Dragon Level 1-8 Walkthrough

You should be able to 3 star Year of the Dragon level 1-8 with two birds, but you don’t have to. Aim Big Brother at the top left triangle stone. The goal is hit it hard, taking out the left pig while shooting the debris (or Big Bro) over so it takes out the pig hiding in stone on the top right. Now fling a White bird down at the bottom left TNT and drop the egg bomb at the wood directly in front of it. The falling debris should be enough to blow it up and leave the remaining pigs tasting like bacon. The score in the video below is 106,210.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

One bird solution is possible with Big Red slicing through top left pig station, at a trajectory a bit higher than horizontal. Would have had approximately 125,000 but left one pig in the pokey. Aloha.

That one always seems to make Big Red come to a premature stop on me. Par for the course, with my kind of luck. Did well enough with video method.

TruckDriver, You might try aiming higher. In order to get the pig and send debris over to the right tower, Big Red shouldn’t actually hit near that pig on the left. I’ve found that the upper triangle – when hit just right – will pull the whole left tower down after tthe bird slices through. Sorry if my initial description wasn’t very clear, especially the “bit higher than horizontal” – the actual angle is probably near 30 degrees. Aloha.

A year later, I can’t get within 5000 of my previous score. Is 2013 the Year of the Pig? Aloha.
P.S. Notice that a few of the wood planks are red? It’s almost as if the level designer is teasing us with, “to make it easier, the answer to this level’s puzzle can be found by looking at the red planks. They aren’t easy to move or destroy so…. good luck! Bwahahahahaha!”

@surfcow, Hello old friend and Welcome to my club, I’ve also been trying since last night to raise my 5 month old score and the closest I’ve come to it is 116k which is at best ludicrous.

Sometimes I think that the game’s logic is retarded, it already knows my best score, so why does it keep giving me crappy ones? It has to be Rovio’s revenge for all the “not so nice” things I’ve written about them.

Vaya con D├Čos mi amigo.

Thanks @surfcow, I got my one-birder! But, sadly not enough debris damage and a low score of 108K :’( Couldn’t get the TNT, which would’ve gotten the rest of the structure on the left. So, I’ll have to keep working at it. Whinnnnnneeee!!

Aiming tip: Launch Terence head-on into the top tip of the triangle. The triangle will fly over to the right tower, clipping the wood plank at the bottom, and it should all topple over down the middle. Then do lots of squeezing your device and grinding your teeth as you watch the mayhem of destruction eliminate the rest of the pigs. Hopefully you’ll get enough debris damage to achieve at least 118K~120K. GL my fellow flingers!

The approach is good but I found that I needed a small arch to ignite the fireworks embedded in the top left structure to take down the top right structure as well. I wasn’t able to get everything in 1 shot, but 2 gave me a decent score.

Whatever I do, I can’t seem to single bird it. If I clip the stone, I take out the right pig but need to use the white bird. If I aim more at the red plank, it just seems to die and doesn’t do anything for the right pig.

Thanks so much! I barely 3 starred this, so I thought I’d look at the walkthroughs. Your method improved my score 10k+. I noticed that if big red hits the horizontal wood piece (that sits on the firecracker), it will bounce just enough to topple that structure and send the stone triangle to the right to destroy the top structure. The debris fell and I only had one pig left. Now to try to do it with one bird.

I used a different methode and got 112920

1th bird at the piggie in the swingset. This makes almost the whole structure collaps. I got lucky that the Pig on the top right fell down, so i could finish the last piggie off with the white bird.

Same as surfcow.
The idea is (and this is a lot easier said than done) to aim for the bottom of the triangular stone. It should lob up and take out the second floating tower. BB should then fall down to the left between the first floating block and the main structure, eventually taking out the TNT.
Took about a thousand flings with lots of near misses.
Well done to mfiman and natureswrath for their 128. I don’t think there’s much more in this.

Yes, it should take literally hundreds of slings to ace this level with just one bird and to get a score above 120,000.. I’m probably near 800 tries so far, and the highest one-birder I’ve managed is just 93,000. However, I’m nearing the 118,000 mark using two birds. So for those who just want a decent score without devoting a whole day or three to this one level, you can score above average with a well-placed second bird that takes out the TNT and the golden fish (worth 3000 pts) – and some luck with debris falling and breaking, as usual. Glad so many have scored well on this one. Keep slinging. Aloha.

After a lot of close calls & a few low-scoring 1-birders, everything finally fell just right. It happened as foley describes, with the stone triangle shooting across to take down the upper right & Terence dropping down to get the TNT. Thank-you @surfcow, your non-hallucination strategy was spot-on.
Has anyone had the upper right structure fall on its own? I’ve seen it start to slide down & did have the top stone triangle & the decorated block fall down into the middle on their own, but that only happened once.

@karen68 @werewolf69 Yes — Werewolf actually saw it fall; see his comments in self- destruction forum. Did you get any point when the blocks fell?
Don’t think it falls very often.
@all — Please report anything you see in forum. Thanks

@mvnla2 I had already flung the 1st bird & he landed just after they fell so I can’t really say about points. Don’t think it would have been much or too advantageous. The whole thing falling would have been much better.

You can bring this to attention by nicer means, yaknow. Looking at their leaderboard, it is clearly an honest player, meaning this was likely a typo: 125 instead of 155.
