Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 16-12

The best strategy for Mine and Dine level 16-12 is to loft the White bird to bomb the gap just left of the treasure chest. This is a very difficult shot, but it is possible, so keep trying! Lob the next Yellow bird into the wooden foot of the main structure to cause it to topple leftward and trigger the TNT. Use the Red birds as necessary to clear any remaining pigs. The score in the video below is 103,720.

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.

I’ve been able to do your method @m_pete, but I cannot get more than 100k. I think it’s because I’m on an Android platform which doesn’t get as many points as on an iPad/iPhone. Good strat, though. Thank you!

Nice score @spurs01 ;-) Where are you having the Bloated Bird hit on the structure? Mine never does enough damage or knocks everything over! I am assuming this was a one birdie?

Avatar of spurs01Rank: Master Slinger with 6385 points
By spurs01 (@spurs01)Score: 124,530

Thanks. It was a 1-birdie, yes. I aimed right at the hollow square below the golden “trophy.” I did it earlier for 118K plus missing TNT and then this detonating TNT. There’s room for more points, though, as a small bit of the middle part of the structure was still standing. Unfortunately, I am done for now. The last day of my vacation is being spent cleaning house. :-( Hope this helps you a bit!

Yes it does, Thank you @spurs01 ;-) I was trying to hit the second one down as that’s how I thought M_Pete’s strat says they got it but it wasn’t working out too well for me…so now I will try for that top one right under the trophy.
Enjoy your last vacation day…even if it is spent house cleaning, lol ;-)

Well I see nobody has spotted the FUN method so I will share with you all. 1st bird as in video … have scored 34K to 38K with this one. Now the fun bit…

2nd bird – A short distance into metal body of axe on left hand side. Just don’t hit the wood. The axe will flip over in a clockwise direction, set off the TNT which propels the axe and handle with great force into the main structure and also takes out the 2 pigs and amethyst nearby. Sometimes it smashes the long left hand wooden upright and it all comes down, sometimes the yellow bird carries on through and smashes that same upright.
Does not always work (sometimes wooden handle smashes or main structure is not hit in the right place) but does work a lot… have
just had 116K three times in 10 minutes by this method.

You probably will not better M_Pete’s 119K one birder this way but it is a pretty cool method all the same :-)

By andrea

I did it roughly this way, too, only I used the yellow bird for cleanup of the right hand side and a red bird to flip over the axe. I agree it may not be higher scoring (I only got 109K), but it is definitely fun to watch!

I was using the method as shown in the video.
BUT when I shot the hen over to the gorge I could see it was falling short, so I dropped the egg just to the right of the big miner pig in the helmet (middle). The left wall fell left, everything went, the gold chalice fell right. the cement block beside the pig right fell right and very slowly the wall fell each pig rolled over, and pooof… and with one white bird! It seemed to unfold in slow motion. I have tried it again….and no luck.
Oh, the score was 117,230. Not fantastic, but very satisfying. Just love this game!! Things just don`t happen like you planned and this time it was even better.

Excellent, Habanero! I got 119,480 on my second try with the axe method. Thank you, thank you!

By hamguin

Yes, Habanero, I love the “bump the crane thing from behind” method. In fact, I got 112000 by using the white bird to knock the crane into the gorge by bumping it on the concrete base from behind. Much of the structure collapsed when the crane whipped around, and yellow bird cleaned up the straggler.

Alternate strategy worked great Habanero. After the first bird sometimes the right side of the left structure falls when the thick solid wood blocks move to the right. Only gained 1.5k but will take it and move on.

Depending on the place where a yellow bird falls into, you can expect score up.
I made a hit the long left hand wooden upright and, in the case of me, got 117K. (the crystal of the right-side end was left…)

I’m getting 93,600 with white bird dipping low in far left opening and yellow on the right – 2 stars. Method above only gets me 80,000. Wth?

Wow – just got top score albeit by only 300pts – yippee. White bird just like the video. The right side fell and got the crystal and the left side slowly toppled taking out the crystal,tnt and caused alot of destruction. i’ve made that shot loads of times but never with this result – I was only trying to ME the level lol. Would be happy to send proof if someone could explain to a technically challenge 40 something how to capture a screenshot (I use a 2nd gen ipod touch).

I’m going back and trying to improve some pre-ABN scores and wound up with a combo plate on the two main alternate strats above for a pretty good score and fun too.
Hit the hollow wood block below the gold chalice and the whole right side fell slowly as it’s supposed to, but got a bad bounce and that far left piggie survived somehow. So I put YB on the stone triangle and got to have the fun of blowing up the tnt too!
I really hate leaving unexploded tnt anyway!

I am not having any luck improving my score today, but I thought I would call attention to the strat of @just-joan which is kind of lost in the replies to @habanero . If you hit the crack just to the right of the middle helmet pig with the egg, you get pretty good results. My scores haven’t been good, but I had several one birders with the method.

By surfcow (@surfcow)Score: 119,410

@stocktoad, I had decent results smacking that crack per @just-joan … but one time the White Bird just cleared the gold chalice and I dropped the egg square on the helmet of the pig just to left of the target. Split the structure, just as before, but with better damage and a single pig remained on right side that Yellow Bird picked off – along with the chest and the crystal for bonus points. 118,000+ Aloha.

@surfcow ……I don’t know for sure, but even with the renowned bovine panoramic vision, you might be a little off on the shot placement. Just barely to the left of the helmet pig works pretty well. That may be where you dropped the egg.

@stocktoad, after further review the dudes in black and white have reversed the call on the field. Congratulations, you won the challenge and will not be charged a Power Up. The zebras changed their minds after checking out this high-tech, boviniacular image showing the exact point of release in a split-screen image MAD16-12.jpg released just moments ago to AngryBirdsNest by unknown conspirators. Indeed, if X marks the spot then the target is just left of dead center on the helmeted pig. Aloha.

Mr. @surfcow, after having read the above exchange of words between yourself and frogman I decided to repay this level a visit to see if your Registered, Trademarked and Copyrighted (X) was truly meritorious of such celebration.

I must hand it to you, it really works and it did so within the first 3 minutes of playing. Yesterday was a very trying day for me since I must have laid over a thousand eggs down the chasm, and all to no avail.

Today I’m spending it sitting on a cold water filled inner tube, lest my backside starts swelling from so many eggs laid. Thank you very much for sharing your method and Ciao.

LOL kind of ancient history, this level. Glad the idea was a benefit to you. I am playing on two Ipods, two ipads, and the PC, I had to look to see what I was playing on back then, It was my old ipod.
