Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 17-11

Our strategy for Mine and Dine level 17-11 is to fire the White bird downward, bombing the TNT and ricocheting into the main structure. With a little luck, the big boulder on the right should topple and pebbles should enter the trough, eventually triggering the big pile of TNT at the bottom. Lob a Yellow bird through the second part of the main structure, and another Yellow bird through the wood in the bottom-left, to clear the level. The score in the video below is 107,570.

I was watching the vid to see if there is a different method then mine for a higher score. Then I tried as shown in the vid, but my method gives me a higher score:
First bird high to drop the egg on the top pig. The bird bounce to the top rock to destroy the crystals there. The bird falls down under and push the stone towards the tnt. The bird falls into the gap and destroys the crystals there. Yellow bird hits the first wooden block of the first structure and takes out that pig. Second yellow bird hits the flat stone to take out the rest of the middle structure and the two pigs. Gave me a score of 122.540.

Did a slight variation on the video – sent the first bird at an angle that took out some of the stalagmites as well as shooting the small stones into the structure. Got the rocks to move and take out the pigs in the tunnel, cause the second explosion. First yellow big cleaned up the rest of the structure and two remaining pigs.

High Score was 135,840 (screenshot)

Got 144,400 with the just first bird. It’s a one in a hundred shot, but if you detonate the white bird in just the right place at the left hand edge of the upper middle roof you can cause the whole building to collapse and also start the chain reaction that explodes all the dynamite and gets all the jewels. After dropping the bomb to take out part of the building the white bird has to hit the jewel on the roof, tip the tower of stones to the left by breaking the wooden support and then fall down the chute to start the boulder rolling. When the tower falls to the left it knocks the rest of the building down. It seems to need pixel perfect timing and positioning but I’ve done it twice now so it can be repeated.

i did the same as this person (one bird) and got 148420.

There’s a ton of confusion about this solution and I think I can clear it up. The part of the building Ian is referring to is the left most part of the wooden roof. However, I found it easier to think of it this way…

Shoot at a low angle, roughly aiming at the horizontal part of the roof (the piece that supports the ice triangles). Drop the egg relatively early (not close to the roof) so that it takes out the cement blocks all the way at the bottom left that support the entire structure. The bird will probably fly just above the 45 degree wooden roof piece on its way to the purple structure.

If the angle of your shot was correct, the WB will shoot up to hit the purple crystal as described. AND, it will take out the vertical wooden piece supporting the tower on the right. That tower will fall left and take out whatever is left of the main structure.

I hope this helps — this level drove me crazy.

Finally was able to do this in one egg. Aim at a low angle, just clearing the purple crystal. Drop bomb on top of lower concrete block and the rest cascades downward. This was a pretty lucky shot and my highest was ~133000 before this.

Thanks to these comments I went back to this level to improve my score, and improve it I did !! Just scored 152,970 using the 0ne bird method described above. After many failed attempts, I came close a few times by destroying most everything but could not get the bolder to break free and roll down the tunnel. After a few of these failures I used that second yellow bird to try and dislodge the bolder. It did, and scored the 152,970 score. Lesson being, if you don’t get it in one, try 2…

Hi there,

First of all, congratulations for developing such an amazing website. It is of great help in my quest to the top ranking although there’s still a long way to go!

Level 17-11 is driving me crazy despite very useful comments above. I’m not sure where precisely to drop the egg to break the whole structure and to cause cascade explosions :-( Can someone clarify what “left hand edge of the upper middle roof” refers to? I know it is a lucky shot winning but want to check first that i’m doing right before trying again and again…

Thanks and have fun!

Cheers,

I was wondering the same, especially since there are two one-bird methods listed. This one has been frustrating me, so I tried the one sending the white bird in low and finally broke past 136,000. Will keep trying. So instead of aiming high and trying to understanding a cryptic statement like left hand edge of upper middle roof, shoot low, just barely over the purple crystal at the bottom and detonate right before hitting the cement block. I have never got everything in one bird, so yo may need to send a yellow bird into the tunnel to clean up. Good luck!

144360 now, same technique. Pull the white bird at an angle just below level/straight, so the bird end up right above the cement block past the crystal. Detonating is a timing issue. I still need two birds to get this score, not sure how the stuff in the tunnel would otherwise start.

I used the same one-birder methods mentioned, and like @pointdexter5, can’t do it with just WB. Always have to use YB to get the pigs in the tunnel. With the L-Factor, the tnt will throw the stones up at an angle so that one of them falls on the tnt below the slingshot and the stones fly up to the cement bricks and boulder on the far right tipping the whole structure to take out one of the stalagtites then dropping down to the crystals below for the extra points.

Hey, guys. I’ve been working on this level for a few days now, and I finally had one of those attempts where everything just went way better than I could have even hoped for. I was using the “one bird” technique where you aim for the edge of the upper roof and touch the screen to make the bird launch into the jewel near the top right of the screen (if you’re zoomed all the way out). I had done it this way many times before, but never with this much success! The bird hit the wall just right causing it to collapse onto the main structure, annihilating it almost completely. Then I just sat there and watched as he rolled down into the tunnel, taking out the final pigs there and causing the TNT explosion.

This video will better illustrate the trajectory. The first screenshot was taken after the first bird, just before the 30,000 bonus points for the final three birds was added to the score. The second and third screenshots show my high score.

I guess I still don’t understand “edge of the upper roof” The roof exists of two parts, a left and right triangle structure. Where are you hitting this exactly? Left side, right side, middle, 75% here, 65 % there. Would be nice to know exactly where to hit it so the bounce were to hit the wood board below the wall.

I get it now based on the trajectory. When you say upper roof, you mean lower roof, or the cement roof. Upper roof in my understanding was the highest roof top, not the lower one. Will try your strategy now.

Hey, Pointdexter5. Actually I was referring to the uppermost wooden “triangle”, the one on the left side of the highest pig. What I aim for is the left side of that “triangle” where the horizontal beam and the 45 degree angle beam come together on the left side. I aim just below that point. The idea is get the bird to pass as close as possible to that 45 degree angle beam after you touch the screen to “launch” him in the direction of the purple jewel above the structure.

It’s a “one-in-a-thousand” thing though. I probably did it a thousand times before I finally had it happen like that. I had beaten the level before with the “one bird”, but my previous scores were only in the 115,000 to 136,000 range. So, even when you do everything perfectly, there is no guarantee that everything will fall perfectly, leading to such a high score.

Actually, it’s funny how it happened. I was watching Jeopardy on TV and playing Angry Birds on my iPod Touch at the same time. I had played this level so many times that I was pretty much just “going through the motions”, like a robot. My mind was drifting back and forth between the game and answering the questions on television when suddenly I looked back down at the screen of my iPod and saw “133,530” on the screen, and I thought to myself, “Wait a minute! I only launched one bird so far. How could I possibly have 133,530 points?” But then I saw that almost every structure had fallen, and all the pigs were gone. That’s when I realized what I had finally done, after about 2 weeks of trying. I managed to regain my senses enough to snap a quick screenshot before the final bonus points were added. I then watched as the final 30,000 was added to my score. I just sat there for a about 30 seconds with my mouth open before I finally picked my jaw up off the floor.

Is the bird after launch (eggdrop) supposed to hit that top crystal and then bounce down to beak the only wooden part of the “stonewall”?

Rank: Boss Hog with 13645 points
By Pointdexter5 (@pointdexter5)Score: 152,570

That is correct, by breaking the wood, the tower tumbles to the left, and when done right knocks most of the structure over. The bird should then drop into the tunnel, get the boulder rolling, and itself destroy the crystal below the tunnel. The big boulder will cause the TNT to explode, and one of the small boulder around it should shoot up into the air backwards, hitting the TNT close to the launch pad. It’s fun when you get it to happen, to see it all come down. Good luck!

Just could not judge the distance from the wood structure properly. I used the cracks in blue background to assist in a consistant release point. My 3 star score was so bad that I gained over 18k with the one bird.

Wow! Great scores! I thought I was doing well at 122,230 with two birds!

By G-Unit

I used a slightly different method. Launch the white bird and drop the egg on the first slanted beam. That won’t take out much but it sets up the two yellow birds. Launch the second yellow bird and aim for the post on the far right. It should knock that over and bank off and roll underneath – hitting the rock and taking out the pigs down below. Aim the last yellow bird for the first wood planks, you’ll get a score of 135,960.

@kimmiecv, a few minutes ago I decided to revisit this level and experiment with something new, here’s what I did.
1) Launch White Bird straight ahead over the jewel and lay your egg on the edge of the concrete platform that supports the entire left side of the structure. (After only 3 tries, it completely destroyed the structure and all pigs on it and in it). Don’t settle for partial destruction, just reset and start again.
2) Launch your Yellow Bird to hit the upper jewel, it’ll bounce off and hit the boulder on the rear tower which will hit the jewel in back and the bird will then fall into the chute, get the boulder rolling and take the last jewel as well, the boulder will finish off the remaining pigs and all the TNT.
Try it for yourself and see better results than any other way, at least for me it worked great and since you play on a different platform than I do, the scores will be higher by default. Good Luck!

I hadn’t tried this level in sometime, but with only 129k I figured I better give it another go. I find the one bird method of going for just left of the top pig most consistent in getting the white bird to go down the tunnel, but not so much in taking out the structure. I got my 154k score going for the small concrete plank, where it does a better job of setting up the structure for collapse.

i had better luck lobbing the white bird then bombing so that it bounces off of the top purple gem. the bird should then ricochet into the trough, eventually breaking the plank and breaking the bottom gem. meanwhile, the boulders set off the stack of tnt, starting a chain reaction to hit the other boulder to take out the rightmost gem and leaving only a couple of pigs for cleanup.
