Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 17-7

Mine and Dine level 17-7 is one of the most difficult levels in the entire Angry Birds app to earn 3 stars. The best strategy is to lob the Boomerang bird over the structure and spin it back through the wooden block on the right side. Ideally, the Boomerang bird should go far enough so as to break the hollow wooden square within. In any event, the whole right side should be cleared with significant damage. Fire a Yellow bird horizontally, through both pieces of wood on the left side. To earn 3 stars, it is important to break the jewel in the trough. Be careful of the encased pig that falls leftward, since he doesn’t always pop. The score in the video below is 125,200.

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.

There once was a pig in a square
That made people pull out their hair
The first shot was great
And yellow flew straight
But the swine in the square was still there…
sigh…..

He’s the piggie who just won’t die
No matter how hard we try
He didn’t care if we even cry
He’s in a box, won’t take our knocks
He’s the piggie who just won’t die!!!

This level deserves all the animosity directed at it! For anyone who is still looking for tips and doesn’t want to read through 100+ comments, here’s what worked for me

For the first shot, aim the boomerang bird to just clear the top helmeted pig. After it passes the right side of the structure, reverse when it is about at the same level as the top right horizontal wooden plank. This helps the bird travel nearly horizontally into the narrow vertical wooden support on the right side and can yield scores of around 60k.

For the second shot, aim basically horizontally or a hair above, and accelerate right before hitting the lower left left narrow vertical wooden support.

Or, just fling and pray. ;)

@halliesginsb ty for the time saving of going back 4 pages……ive made the 2 shots perfectly a gazillion times…and still can’t make average!! Please please tell me there is a hidden message in your post..some secret tip something:( please..this is about as close to whining I’ll get before the full force …ooops it slipped out i swear by accident….;) ty for you’re tips:)

@kathy if the whine factor has not helped, here are a couple of suggestions. The boomerang bird needs to barely clear the top helmeted pig, and you need to get at least 50k points on that shot, better if it’s 55-60k.

On the second shot, it helps if the bird stays on the platform after breaking the second board. Debris will still fall to the right to get the crystal, but a lot will also roll off the bird and to the left, including that obnoxious pig in the hollow box.

Last, if it’s just not working for you, get some sleep! You know how to do it and the method will coalesce in your brain while you sleep. GL!

@kathy and you are so close! Sometimes I feel like the game somehow senses when you really, really want a higher score, and it won’t give you one just to be spiteful! Like an obstinate child. Oh wait, is the game being childish or am I? ;)

Maybe we should play like we don’t really care what the score is and it will get bored and accidentally let a good score slip through. Or you could just ignore for a couple more months and then try again. Maybe it just needs a timeout.

Hi @kathy, I just read through your comments as well. AB DOES behave like an obstinate child! A few days ago, on the Hamoween challenge level, I was stuck just below 95. The day AFTER the challenge, I went back got over 100 for a top 3! Another day, 10 points below a puppy. 10. The game would NOT give me ten lousy points. So, if that’s how it’s playing me lately, I’m whining now. An hour into challenge. Give it up AB. I want a top 50!

If anyone cares, the semi-collapse of this level still works. 3-5 seconds after reset, the top right plank and a few blocks will fall over, giving about 8,500 points. It occurs in clusters, i.e. twice in 10 attempts, then none for the next 100.

I counted about 70, waiting before a fling, then got distracted by Big Bang Theory and just sent boomerang and watched the top falling as the bird sailed over.

@maiasatara Sheldon strikes again. :) That’s how it happened to me every time. Things are moving right at the beginning, but it doesn’t actually fall until around the time boomerang bird flies by.

1st Bird damage is so variable, I don’t know if waiting for the collapse has any benefit :/

@Kelani — I wondering if the really great scores come from fortuitous timing of the first bird with the collapse?

@HallieGinSB — How on earth did you get 60K out of the first shot.
Don’t know if this helps, but there is a suggestion on the last page that you don’t want to accelerate the second shot.

Not above average yet, but at least improved slightly. @HallieGinSB‘s first shot is great. Would only add that you want to leave as little room as possible above the top helmeted pig, Activate just a hair above the top of the upper right-most pig. Of, course, I haven’t gotten 60K for this. I’ve been trying the tip from @Laurence not to activate the second bird. More consistently leaves bird on left platform, which help get rid of the pesky pit in the wood box.

I must be quite sleep deprived from working this Tax Season, because until just now, I hadn’t put 2+2 together to realize my 124860 was below average … absolutely no idea what I was thinking last night.

Nothing too spectacular, but I’d been following @hallieginsb year old post, but this time I managed to improve to 127530. The 1st shot was so close to the helmeted pig that he got a haircut as the Boomerang bird flew by. I thought I activated in the right spot, but about 1/3-1/2 of the left most part of the right side still remained.

YB at a slight downward diagonal, boosting immediately, to pierce the narrow & thick vertical wood. As the left side fell left & smallest piggie rolled off & died, the remaining part of the right side destabilized & falling wood & concrete put me above average : -)
