Angry Birds Seasons: Christmas 3 Star Walkthrough Level 1-7

The best strategy for Season’s Greedings level 1-7 is to lob a Black bird through the snow ceiling and onto the first hatted pig. The explosion should cause significant destruction, but a one-bird clear is actually not ideal. Launch the next Black bird flat, toward the back of the structure, and blow the last pig to kingdom-come. The score in the video is 75,270.

Note: The video below shows the Santa Hat glitch. This glitch has since been fixed and thus is no longer possible. The trigger was the Santa Hat atop the bottom-right pig. To see which levels have the glitch, we have tagged them.

I’m within 1k of average and never had the glitch. I also haven’t played these levels in a long time, so it should be attainable.

I’ve been returning to some of these “old” levels over the last few weeks, and, to be honest, I’ve avoided the SG levels because of the absence of the hat glitch.

Some of these levels are very tough to achieve the average score because the top scores are so inflated. This is one of those levels!

WTB @christophermorrison5 on your score. I’m glad to know that it can be done (in fairness, I am now within 74 points of the current average).

you know,this level design reminds me of a AT-AT walker from Star Wars.

Score 75250 – 1 bird, lucky shot. High arc trajectory down into second “tower” where left most pig with Santa hat is. I love AB as much as anyone here but I have to say that I think Rovio made a big mistake with this level. Personally I haven’t looked at getting on the leader boards, but for those who have Rovio created more problems than they fixed when they “fixed” the glitch. And what’s the l point? Why take away something so fun? Guess I’m just disappointed I didn’t get to this level pre-glitch. Pity party at my house ;-)

Agreed. The average isn’t a true depiction due to the unfair nature of the glitch and the number of players who didn’t get to take advantage of said glitch.

ive just entered all my scores on angry birds seasons and have noticed this “santa hat glitch”. is there anyway to get the glitch back on ? Im 44th on the leaderboard and im pretty miffed that because i have not done seasons greedings with this glitch, im now gonna be thousands behind forever. ive been playing seasons for years and im 2989 in the world and wondered why i could not go up the leaderboard, cos im in the top 1000 at least for all the other levels. What a joke, the whole leaderboards on both game centre and angrybirdsnest do not give a true picture then!?

Really??? Try getting 120k+ without the glitch, once you’ve tried to get what’s impossible without the glitch (and failed miserably) then say you can’t tell which ones were gotten with or without the glitch and do it with a straight face. Because seriously those of us who are able to get scores in the top 100 like 90% of the time in the levels without the glitch can tell you which ones are bogus. So much for a fair playing field. :(

@E-star Thank you for your video.

It provided the hope and motivation that an above average score can be obtained for those of us who did not or do not have the Santa Hat glitch. It can be accomplished with two birds. Found that manual activation of the Bomb Bird produced the best score.

Obtained a one-bird solution many times with the first bird in the video but yielded 76k+ for the score.

You are welcome Pops, I made sure I endured the same agony everyone else had, so I played the levels first without the glitch. The only one I wasn’t able to beat was 1-24 I think. After 4 days, I just gave up.

Glad you made it above average! Great job!

Thank you for this vid @e-star it’s nice to know we can at least make avgs. Eventually with the glitch now gone to give us a fair playing field.
However I am disappointed that the glitch scores still stand, those of us who do not have the glitch but want to compete for top scores have been completely hamstrung and will never be able to HONESTLY compete for top scores and that is truely a shame. It feels a bit like fighting unattainable PU scores in ABO the only difference is they are allowed in this seasons game where PUs are not. Very disappointing indeed.

Wdll @Kimmiecv you were right! The unfairness of these averages driven up by Santa hat glitch is just wrong. Anyone looking at leaderboard can tell which scores are achieved with or without glitch and they should be differentiated ..thank god for @E-Star who is such an honest woman to post a strat for those of us who can never have the advantage, but also to say she has played both ways..She deserves a special Honor for that fact. And I do agree that the boards are not ‘true’ mathematicallly speaking and there’s no reason under the sun why they can’t be fixed,’to delete ‘ glitch’ scores and make an even playing field for ALL members..

Well, top 50 is impossible but this was one of the glitch levels I was still below average on, so at least I’ve managed to fix that. Just like the walkthrough, & I found it better if the right half is still upright as in the video & not collapsed, it allows the 2nd shot to get through to the base of the horizontal stones beside the bottom right hatted pig. I manually detonated it as soon as it made contact.
The stone blocks in this level are very unforgiving – maybe it’s the arrangement they’re in, but they seem very hard to destroy, even with the bomb bird.

@karen68, you’re absolutely correct in all that you’ve just stated, especially the part about the unforgiving cement blocks, I’d never seen Bomb Bird stopped cold by cement blocks before, and this is one of those ultra-rare levels where a 1-Birder hurts more than it helps, I’ve gotten 3 so far tonight and the highest was just over 69k. On the other hand I got a decent 2-Birder that allowed me to raise my old score by 7k+. Happy Hunting!

@swelld, one of the drawbacks of playing on a PC is that with a mouse it’s very hard to react fast enough to beat the clock, although I have tried it and usually the score gain isn’t all that great because for some strange reason the Bomb Bird weakens after a 1-Birder.

It’s also possible to achieve three stars in this level with one bird. I found this while trying the above solution… Aiming to hit the first red hatted pig with the first bird caused a chain reaction that gave a score of 70210.

I see most of the comments are about the glitch, so here is an alternate strat, albeit less repeatable then the walkthrough, but got me 4k over the glitchy average without the benefit of the glitch.
First bird to about where the glitchmongors found was good to activate the hat. Through the longer snow block on top and coming to rest on the horizontal stone at the far right of the structure. Every once in a while it goes through but I haven’t exploited that. Yet.
A good boat pushes the G’s left and kills all but one or two pigs, an excellent blast leaves a clear path to the lower stone slab in the second tower where the Santa hat pig was at the start.
Second bird to the far right of that slab, hitting the vertical block and coming to rest and BLAM.
I’ve bit above avg (excellent on a glitch level) several times, broken 80k a few time, broken 82 twice.
If we get a decent flinger like @hunnybunny, @kathy, or @bernersenn on it the may be able to eke out higher scores.
I know that long ago @amslimfordy announced that glitch scores would remain valid, but what if
@sweetp made a challenge week of playing the glitch levels glitch less, set a reasonable puppy threshold, and let us come up with a new high score, then clear the scores higher. I know that most who benefited from the glitch are legit, like @e-star, but I also know that most would agree to it and accept the challenge to go back to these levels. And maybe there could be a separate copy of the glitch leaderboards that people could look at, but that wouldn’t affect averages or episode total. Because it really isn’t fair that a glitch that wS available for a month 6 years ago biases the board so much.
There’s my $.02
