Angry Birds Seasons: Christmas 3 Star Walkthrough Level 1-16

Our strategy for Season’s Greedings level 1-16 is to fire the White bird in front of the first Finish flag, bombing the snow piles there. Launch Big Brother through the ice blocks in the top left. He should leave rubble behind him as he reaches the center of the level. Use the next White bird to bomb the far-left pig and ricochet into the remaining structure. If necessary, clear the footing of the last tower with the Yellow bird. The score in the video is 102,100.

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 sure would like to be able to replicate the destruction of the 3rd shot (2nd white bird). My shots don’t seem to take down nearly as much as the video.

Finally was able to string the exact shots together to destroy enough to get 101180. I can now give my clicking finger a much needed rest.

I have four levels from 2010 without three stars. I had to let it go. But if I hit a year without fixing it, well, I guess I have no threat but I’ll be even angrier. : ) I have 99,980 and am close to losing my sanity. Or mayby my santa-ty. Wish me luck so I can finish this by the 16th.

103,500! Woo hoo! Now to 17. I need only 10 points more for 3*.

I’ve been sending my anemic birds into snow and wood for days…I go in search of yet another walkthrough (my birdies don’t have enough power to pull off the walkthrough on this site) but the site was slow in loading so I decided to torture myself with another try while I waited for the page to come up and scored 101230 3 (yes THREE) STARS Oh yeah! :-D

Happy dance at my house! I know most people on the planet have long finished Seasons, but for anyone else still struggling with this level I’ll tell you how I finally did it because I didn’t find this on any of the walkthroughs – it was just serendipity.
1st bird egg bomb onto the top most pig (this took out the entire column)

2nd bird high arch landing on 2nd pig from the left
3rd bird high arch egg bombing pig on the far left
4th bird (yb) takes out the right most column of 4 pigs
5th bird 10,000.cause ask the piglets are dead!

By rdnzlrips82 (@rdnzlrips82)Score: 108,900

My PAT is as follows (You will want to throw your device, but it is worth it)
1st White – Line up the bottom of the belly of White with the spot where the Y of the sling meets the base of the sling. This just clears the front flag. Drop egg as close as possible to the structure.
Big Red – Same line almost same aim point. You want big red to barely clear front flag, or barely take it out. This shot needs to destroy all snow blocks in the middle of the structure. With a lot of L-factor, you should have the two lower, front pigs left and little debris on them. About 70-75k after this.
2nd White – Fire low and drop egg to take out remaining pigs.
4th & 5th birds = 20k.
This should give you 100-108k.

Thanks @rdnzlrips82 for the alternate strategy and E-Star for the video below. Both helped my game to improve on this level and gained 3k in points.
The SG levels of 16 through 24 as I remembered from the first time I played provided quite a challenge for my eye & hand coordination. They are also the ones I am at or below average. Let the fun begin.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5355 points
By wanda (@wanda)Score: 106,170

This is the strategy I used to get 106170 with three birds:
First bird – at about 45 degree angle – into the topmost pig. You want to release egg bomb and have the deflated bird fall down into the center of the structure to take out snow blocks and pig at the bottom; your score should be around 30k-33k after this. If the debris will fall and clear the center and the deflated bird flies to the right, you can pick up a few extra points this way. I got my score with the bird falling straight down.
Second bird – pull down until Big Red is touching the upright portion of slingshot and release him. You want to hit the ice blocks on the left above the three left pigs. You should be able to get all three pigs with this bird. Your score will be around 50k to 60k after this.
Third bird – arch over the flag (if it still there) and drop the egg bomb just before the remaining right side, popping all remaining piggies. My score was 86k after this one.
I did repeat this a few times, and came close to having a score over 107k, but the far left pig was stubborn :).
I played this on my Kindle, so you will have to adjust the angles, depending on your device.
Thank you to birdaddict for the strategy for the first bird. Hope this helps someone.

Happy flinging :).

I wish that I had something brilliant to add, or even a semi-detailed description of how I reached my score. The truth is that this levels drives me nuts, and I was really just throwing things kind of randomly (well, not completely randiomly). Those of you wo know me well, kniw that i am generally more systemstic. Let me try:

First bird I shot at a high angle. My hope was not to just hit the snow, but to do a bit more damage. I was well past the flag and closer to the mid section before I dropped the egg.

Second bird was where I was not as careful. I shot T at a high angle, too. He came down and took out the mid section, including the snow blocks. This left me with one (maybe both) pig(s) on the bottom left, and the last column with pigs.

Third shot, again, high angle and I took out the bottom corner causing the column to fall left and get the last pigs.

Looking and @rdnzlrips82 approach, it looks like we did about the same thing with different approach shots.

3 birds, 106,910. After reading through, I found that my strategy was much the same as Wanda’s, with slightly more specific goals.

1st bird – Aim for the wood/glass corner to the left of the topmost pig. Release egg at last possible moment for maximum impact. Make sure the falling debris clears out all snow blocks in the middle.

2nd bird – Shoot through the block underneath the first flag and into the wood structure, clearing out all three pigs, if lucky. If bottom right remains, you can still manage as long as the debris in the next shot is enough to take him out.

3rd bird – Fling over any remaining debris to the left, and drive into the base of the right tower, toppling it and popping the remaining pigs.

The hardest part about this level was divising a strategy. Once I had that, it didn’t take too long to get my score up.

I hate this level, I hate the white bird, I wish I’d never heard of Angry Birds! My white bird won’t get close enough to drop the egg and smash into stuff. I see it in the videos time and time again but mine just won’t do that :-O. While I’m at it, I hate theme 3 levels 3 and 10 of trick or treat, I can’t 3 star those either. And level 1-11&12, 2-10&13 of moon festival, and 3, 14 and 16 of back to school, I hate them all and wish I’d never bothered to download seasons. These 10 to 3 star and then I can move on to season 3. Ok, rant over, hopefully I’ll be able to get somewhere with these levels now ;-).
