Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 17-14

Our strategy for Mine and Dine level 17-14 is to fire the first Yellow bird into the top-left TNT. One of the stones will fall onto the TNT at the far-right and clear the bottom-right of the level. Arc a White bird up and bomb the left side of the top structure. If anything remains in the top structure, use a similar trajectory with Big Brother. Otherwise, fire into the TNT in the bottom-left to finish the level. The score in the video below is 94,230.

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.

Alternate method. 102k+

Bird 1. Same as video.
Bird 2. Same as video, or alternatively my preference is to drop bomb between first and second structures on top. Either way it’s very hard to get all the upper pigs with this shot… But it is possible… Although it didn’t affect my score much. So just use bird 4 to mop up the remaining pigs. Meanwhile, …
Bird 3. Big Red… Aim for lower TNT. A good shot will barrel through and destroy all or most of the lower wood, stones, and pigs.
Bird 4. Little Red… Aim high to take out remaining pigs on the upper level.
Bird 5. 10k bonus.

Another alternate: 108k+

Bird 1. Over the two boxes of explosives at the bottom. (Take out two pigs and timber underneath)
Bird 2. Drop bomb at first structure on top.
Bird 3. (Big Red) Over the top to take the two remianing pigs on top. (Remaining pig underneath closest to the caterpault also dies.)
Bird 4. 10k bonus!
Bird 5. 10k bonus!

105,720 by different method. Yellow bird horizontal through slot above stacked dynamite. Turbo boost takes out ground level jewels and dynamite between them. Slot is mostly cleared except for pig at left with helmet light. White bird low upward angle to just clear jewel on outcrop. Drop bomb between jewel and building, bomb gets jewel, rebound knocks down building and topples everything to right. Only pig remaining is pig under rock. Big red bird blows dynamite and pig and gets extra points by sliding through slot and hitting other debris. 20k bonus for two small red birds unused.

Doesn’t work every time, needs perfect positioning and a bit of luck, but can be repeated.

109k using this method. The big trick is getting the 2nd, white bird to take out all four pigs up top; I’ve only managed to do it the one time.

By jzdanger

I got 115k but with a different method. first bird goes straight up and aim for the crack in the wooden structure just to the right of the pig on top of the blocks. hit it well and it all collapses into the hole and the small pig all the way to the right gets popped up into the air and goes the way of all bad pigs. second shot is the same as the video…the big guy takes out the bottom…a small guy hits the tnt up high and pretty much total destruction with one bird left

1. Yellow bird same as jzdanger. Key is to slow down the launch speed by pulling the bird down and towards the sling so it goes up a little. Then it will travel in a straighter line. Activate upon release.
2. White bird same as the video but clears everything on top except the far right pig.
3. Big Brother takes out everything underneath both floating rocks and moves to the far right tnt.
4. Red bird arcs to the far right pig next to the stones.
5. Red bird = bonus

Use first bird to destroy the two TNTs on the bottom,bomb the egg in the middle of the first tower and the pig wearing a hat with light pointing to you,use big brother to destroy second tower and pig,everything must fall down to detonate the 3 TNTs at the bottom,if it does not fall down,use 4th bird to detonate the TNT in front.The stones will fall to the TNTs and will explode.Now that pig at the back bottom will be dead.

Just set the high score on this one, used 3 birds. I found this video online which I used for my strategy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIl0zP2Np00&sns=em

You just have to make sure the small green pig on the top right is killed either on the first or second bird. On the catapult, there are markings which looks like an oval. The bottom of the bird needs to line up with the top of the oval, and the birds needs to be accelerated right away. You want to wipe out as much as possible of this middle section of wood. Then lob the bomb bird up a bit to go right above the purple crystal, drop the bomb to push over this top structure to the right, pushing over the remaining bird on top. The tunnel on the bottom should be fairly clear by now. Aim big red at the top TNT to have it barrel through the tunnel and hope for some wood to hit the TNT at the back. Two birds leftover for bonus. Not sure if taking out the remaining TNT on top would have caused more than 10k damage, but I would guess not.

I can post screen prints if anybody is interested.

Here’s another strat that’s worked for me and will probably yield higher scores to other platforms.
1) Launch Yellow Bird at the left lower TNT.
2) Launch White Bird at a medium arc so it faces the upper structure, then lay your egg.
3) Launch Big Brother at a wide high arc to take out everything above and continue down to the far right TNT.
2 bonus birds= 20000 points.

A correction to above strat, it’s not Big Brother that continues to the far right TNT, but rather, one of the wooden triangles that Big Brother knocks over. Sorry.

I have been using a 4 bird strategy which is a variation of the 3 bird strategy of @Pointdexter5.
The first bird must enter on the left of the top since it is the best way to kill the pig on the right. Removing the hat of the bird just on the left of the entry point is a good indication of a right shot.
Like this: http://angrybir.de/196590m

The second bird (w/b) is used to destroy as much as possible of the left structure. For better destruction of the structure (and higher score) it must not just graze the border but be a little higher.
Like this: http://angrybir.de/15nwR1f

At this point the central structure must be almost completely destroyed (it is not the case in the pics).
The third bird is then use to push most of the rock back in the tunnel with or without killing all the remaining birds.

At this point the 4th bird is used to detonate the TNT box on the left which will (most of the time) send a rock to the group of TNT boxes on the right to finish the birds and destroy as many as the pushed rocks as possible.

Here is the pic of the highscore: http://angrybir.de/15nx1px

I did try with 3 birds, but found it easier to achieve higher scores with 4.

Hope it helps a little.

Congratulations on top score @asher!

Thank you so much for sharing, it is good to know that first shot is still possible. Last time I visited this level I tried for an hour before asking @pointdexter5 to see if he could still get it. He gave it a few tries without success. I will have to give this level another try myself now.

Thanks and no problem.

The right positions are crucial to get really high scores.
I think the PC with a full hd screen and a precise mouse is at an advantage here since it’s easier to pinpoint location repeatedly than on a tablet.

Nice score @kathy, 115 is tough to do using all birds! I like the challenge of this level too. For a high score you need not just one, not just two, MAYBE 3, but possibly four perfect shots. As pointed out above, it is really important that as much wood, and the lower crystal are gone before flinging BB. BB needs to clear ALL the remaining rubble of rocks and bricks to get above 115k, but any wood or the crystal can make it almost impossible to do. I succeeded in doing that, but I had lousy destruction of the upper left structure, easily leaving 10k in wood. Another day…

Fifty minutes of trying that first shot on my iPad and I can’t come close to getting that tight angle. I have ABO on my PC, but never use. Maybe I will go give it a try there. I don’t like the idea of mixing my scores from different platforms, but if that is what it takes…

As you can you see on this picture, 130k is even possible if you destroy almost all the pieces and don’t focus on the crystal:

I can often get the top, right piggy with the white bird carcass by clipping the left wood structure when dropping the egg.

Thanks for the screenshot @bonneypattycat, it’s tough to get the bird all the way down to the bottom but it is possible. I still haven’t managed to get the top right pig with the ricochet from the white bird but have come very close. In the end I needed all 5 birds for 112k but I’m sure I can do better.
So my understanding from the above is that the moonshot with the 1st bird only works on PC? I didn’t read all the comments on the walkthrough before replaying this level (you’d think I’d know better by now) & spent about an hour on ipad without coming close before coming back here & reading the rest of the page. I’ll have to keep trying to do this in 4 birds using that 1st shot.

@karen68, I only know for certain the shot is not possible on iOS or Android. It is quite easily done on PC, often drilling down to the bottom. It took me quite a while to get to 117k on my iPad. It really takes four perfect shots to get much higher. My weak shot on the 117k score was poor damage to the upper structure which I usually manage to get quite well. Very challenging but fun level. GL!

I know what you mean @bonneypattycat. I had some scores in Google+ when AB was released that that are higher compared to my scores registered at ABN, but I am only going to register my ipad scores here.

And for @asher, congrats on breaking the score. I guess it seemed the first shot was no longer possible on iOS versions of ABO, but maybe the PC version allows it. Have you been a member before? I saw you registered recently and immediately had scores in the top 10 in all episodes where you entered scores, which surprised me. Not that this is not possible, just very difficult at this point, especially for Poached Eggs. When a new user shows up and immediately is ranked high, it gets noticed. Don’t take that personal, it just happens. If you are new to this site, please remember that Power-Up scores are not allowed here. Any clean scores are welcome.

Hi @pointdexter5! If I manage to improve my score on the PC (yes, the shot is possible!), I won’t feel too guilty entering that score. Without that first shot, a decent score simply is not possible. And, I know at least a few of the top scorers here use more than one platform, different versions (HD and non-HD) and even older releases. So yeah, I will absolutely enter a higher score if I can get it on the PC.

I had a score of 115k on the PC, but deleted it. I will post scores only from iOS (allowing for the possibility of one day getting an iPhone ;)

On my 110k score, using the alternate shot I posted, there was barely a trace of wood anywhere, and all crystals smashed. Somehow gotta get more stones and brick to break to get to anywhere near 127k…. or even 115k again.

No I have never been a member before but I have been playing AB for quite some time and just started to try to get high scores a year ago.
(using the TMO spreadsheet and theater333 as references).

Playing a few hours each day listening (not watching) the news certainly helps to improve the strategies.

I decided to sign in last week after discovering the site (it was mentioned in a comment on theater333) and finding out that my scores were not too bad.

I understand perfectly the scrutiny I was submitted at first. Not a problem at all and healthy at that.

And don’t worry I will not use PU. I don’t have them on my probably a little outdated PC version right now and when I will upgrade I will abide by the rules ;-)
