Jingle Sling No P/U’s 1st white bird to take out balloons holding sleigh. 2nd white bird to get reindeer, if they already haven’t dropped. Use the last 2 bird(s) if needed. I used all 4. 216k
For 232k: I agree with your first shot but try to take out leftmost pig at the same time – this should actually clear almost all pigs (one-birder is possible!). 2nd/3rd bird low arc to last pig(s) but make sure mathilda ends up in the gift pit
Upped to 237k :)
@sal9 – please raise the bar – I have a 259,960 on this one – thanks!
iPad – havn’t been able to replicate on the PC. JS, no power up to start. Matilda under the sled and she took it down and then bounced into the upper gift pit. Used the rest of the Matildas and then FLWM with the bouncy sling, IIRC.
Done @greilich You should be able to enter your score now.
Is anyone else sick of the level timing out before your bird is done moving?? my last Matilda was dropping into the gift pit and the level timed out… Seems to happen on the computer more than mobile
Yes and it also bugs me when you have popped all the pigs and would like to shoot another bird but it closes the screen before you can. And sometimes it is just after you have selected a power up but do not get to use it…
@greilich and mongo,
One way to prevent a level from timing out on you is to pull the next bird back in its sling and hold it till you’re ready to launch it. Many of us do this frequently. If you decide your score is high enough without using the next bird, then carefully put him back on his perch without launching. Another way to prevent the level from timing out on you is to hit the WM button. The level will not time out on you if you have chosen the WM soon enough, then you can choose a sling or another power-up, if you have any left.
Look for the top players. Ask them directly for tips and strats. Most will respond favorably to you with help. That’s partly what the Nest is all about: sharing strategies. With few exceptions, it is nearly impossible to make videos on mobile platforms such as iOS or Android. Most videos are made on PC or PC using BlueStacks. In the absence of a video, many Nesters post bird-by-bird strat-descriptions, sometimes with a screen shot (picture). Lemme know if you want more tips. You can find a lot of tips and help in the AB Friends forum section here on the Nest.
Happy Flinging & Merry Christmas!
Go and bother Rovio’s support with it, @mongo, @greilich. I have done this about 2 yeas now. Lately their answer has changed from “players want to game end quickly and …” to “we have talked about it to developers”. Maybe if enough of us are bothering them constantly then maybe thay are going to do something about it.
I guarantee they are losing profits with quick timeouts. I, and several others that I know of, just stop playing for the day when we select a powerup and the level times out. I play the game for some FRIENDLY competition, and fun. If the levels arent good, or they mess with the damage index, or time our too quickly, I see no reason to play when it’s no longer fun. I,ve been in the platinum league for (guessing) 6 months or so , but I’m barely hanging on since I no longer force myself to grind out levels I dont like just to raise my score a little.
as for the tip about drawing a bird and then releasing it before slinging to prevent a timeout, I’m at a disadvantage. I’m a very large man, with massive hands. When I draw the bird back with the tip of my forefinger, it’s completely hidden. When I try to carefully release it without flinging, I have a very poor success ratio because I cant see the sling. lol
1st bird (JS) to the left in order to destroy the 2 ice ornamets.
2nd bidr drop egg right after launch in order to take down sledge and deers.
3rd bird drop egg to remainings
4th bird (KS) into the ornament pit
Wingman (BS) to remaining pig (if any) and presents.
It’s almost Xmas! How can I tell…. Well quite simple for people it’s the season of giving for businesses it’s the season of taking… Proof… Where are the daily videos for free power ups???? Is angrybirds so selfish and inconsiderate. It won’t allow us a cple free power ups? Some of us players like myself need those to compete against the players with thousands and thousands of power ups. You know the ones they sling 100 wingman per level to get a top score then act like there good players well us normal players get only a handful to try and hope for a miracle. Yup sure sounds like a typical Xmas to me the rich get richer well the poor hope for miracles thank you angrybirds for letting me know how much you apperciate the time I invest in your game I know I’m asking a lot for a simple video so I might be able to have 1 power up for Xmas
I agree with you 100%l
You can still get the free power up, you have to complete the power up training again
I flat out refuse to pay any money for these types of things only b/c I know that I will end up spending a crazy amount of money. The free power ups was the only way I could compete while using my coins selectively and generally coming in the top 5 in my league each week. I can’t see how taking away the free power ups will make people who are using them spend money. Those people who already spend money on power ups don’t care about a few power ups each day. So really, by doing this how would they generate anymore revenue.
Totally agree. Up until now, those videos have been my main source of PPs, since I only have a couple of friends who also play the game. Without PPs I have no chance against the top players. I do enjoy the competition factor and I would like to keep playing, but I see that the only chance I have now is to add a bunch of friends on Facebook, so we can exchange gifts. For those of us who don’t like to add strangers to our personal page, that also only leaves us the option of creating a secondary page just to keep playing. I think that’s what I’ll do, because there’s no way I’m gonna spend money in the game.
If you’re interested, there’s a holiday sale today for bird coins or power ups up to 60% off. Unsure how long the sale will last. Last time the 60% off sale occurred was the weekend after Thanksgiving. Many of us took advantage and stocked up on hundreds, if not thousands of power ups. I have a hunch the videos will resume soon after the sale ends. FYI :)
I have no idea how to take/post a video… Is there a preferable program for iPhones?
@dassem and Jamie,
Many high-scoring Nesters have hundreds of friends. The more friends you have, then the more bird coins or power ups you can exchange with each other as daily gifts. I collect at least 900 bird coins or power ups from 300 friends every week. It’s simple, but it takes a few weeks or months to build a list of trustworthy “friends.” Have a look at the AB Friends forum section here on the Nest for many more tips and info.
But with that many friends the chances of coming in first to get coins is pretty slim. I guess it’s a trade off. But my opinion is that it shouldn’t be a paid powerup game. There are people who ONLY play where they can pay for an advantage and DON’T play where they can’t use powerups. Hmmm.
Top scores on this level are in excess of 300k. How they’re doing it, I have no clue–yet :) In the meantime, here’s a strat for mobile that consistently scores between 250-270k, and with a little luck, more than 270k…
iPad with PUs:
1) Matilda+JS+KS on slightly downward arc. Drop egg-bomb on first sled. Matilda should ricochet up into sky bringing down everything in sky, then end up in gift-pit on upper right;
2) Matilda: go from left to right. Carefully aim so ornaments of JS may take out pigs and debris AFTER dropping egg-bomb on nearest pigs and debris. Matilda should end up in the gift-pit again;
3) Matilda: repeat Step 2;
4) Matilda: this is an important shot. Aim Matilda just over gifts in the lower gift-pit. Drop egg-bomb at the last second. All gifts should be wiped out in lower gift-pit;
5) FLW to upper gift-pit.
Here’s a screenshot : https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/dseufert/album/picture/17414/
@admins please raise the high score limit for this level. I just scored 320K. Should be at least 325K from what I can see from my friends scores.
@skinley Nice score! How’d you do it? What platform? A video, screenshot, or text-strat description would be helpful to a lot of us Nesters. Thanks! :)
There is a glitch on BS that gives around 60k points extra .. havent been able to replicate it on PC or anything else .. so guess if your not using bluestacks, your outta luck this week ..
I was playing on PC using Bluestacks. I tried to include a screenshot in my last post but it didn’t come through. I’ll try just a link to it in this post. If it doesn’t come through again just look at my album. It’s the only one I have in there. Thanks
Level 6 High Score
@sal9 There is indeed a BlueStacks glitch on this level on the first Matilda that can trigger scores over 80k after the first bird. Here’s a video from a fellow Nester of a super high score with glitch:
Non-glitch scores seem to top out at about 285k, then glitch-scores seem to jump by 6k to 291k+. This gap is according to my list of friends. Yours might be different. –MB :) Merry Christmas!

Scores entered on leaderboards are not supposed to include scores obtained with glitches. “Squawk! The Angry Birds Friends Leaderboard is open to Power-Up scores. Scores obtained with the aid of third party plugins or glitches are NOT ALLOWED. We can tell the difference! Be prepared to post a screenshot or video as proof of your Top Score(s). It’s a tough competition!”
i agree there is a lot of cheaters last few weeks and it s increasing, we all know about the programs who can hack the power ups and other things but it s up to Rovio to determinate the cheaters and banning them from the game not from the league.
I WANT TO SEND A REPORT TO ROVIO COULD YOU HELP ME
It’s an incredibly difficult policy to enforce fairly, though. What exactly constitutes a “glitch”? There was a “glitch” a couple weeks ago on one level where you could get different number of points for destroying the same set of blocks with Matilda, depending on the exact position from which you dropped the egg on them. (See my post on week 186, level 4.) Intended by the game developers? Very unlikely. But in fact, many people took advantage of this without even noticing it. They just played the level a few times until they got a high-enough score they were happy with. Little did they know their Matilda shot gave them 10k more points that particular attempt. Should they be banned for this? Doesn’t seem fair. But then where do you draw the line?
I’d be curious to know how the “glitch” works this time. The Facebook video link does not work for me. Is there something specific or unusual that the player does that grants more points than normal? Dropping an egg on a particular pile of debris from a particular position, perhaps? Does it seem reproducible? And importantly, does it seem like something that could happen by accident, or only by someone maliciously trying to exploit the game?
I wholly agree @scottrogoff … a “glitch” on a particular platform is NOT a cheat. Rovio varies which platforms work better on any particular week, i myself use ABF on FB via PC mainly but have access to Android both real and via Bluestacks, i do not have any access whatsoever to the any Apple platform so weeks that the Apple devices are the top scorers I can do nothing! Ce Las Vie.
Correct! so why are the top of the tables all on 300k+? Screenshots and videos will only prove that those folks reached those scores and given that the majority are well known and trusted AB Nest players would they themselves even know that it was a supposed GLITCH that got the scores?
Unless someone from Rovio came in and said sorry the top score for this lvl can only be be ???’??? who are we to call anyone out?
Top score in my lvl 9 Diamond league is 273’560 so even 275k+ would help me lol
I finally broke 275k (bluestacks) after some experimentation with bouncy sling. It’s hard to give an exact strategy because I was reacting to different bounces each time. But the general idea is:
– Use bouncy sling for all shots including Wingman.
– Don’t waste any shots aiming Matilda to drop into the big right pit. It’s useless because Wingman can take out everything over there in the last shot. Instead, make shots that cause Matilda to bounce around back on the left side of the level and hopefully take out some of the debris each time.
– A good first shot is to aim straight right, and drop the egg directly on the star. Matilda barely grazes yellow balloons 2, 3, 4, and 5 (but doesn’t touch any of the sled or reindeer feet), then she bounces off that tiny piece of back wall directly below the candy cane, and falls back left to bounce around the main part of the level.
– A good second or third shot is to aim at the smaller gift pit (with the curved wall above it), and release so that Matilda bounces off the curved wall and flies allll the way back to take out the 2 blue balloons and drop all that glass.
– For the wingman shot, put on KS and PP and aim just *barely* high enough to get in the big pit without grazing the front wall.
Screenshot for 278820:
Well I never figured out how to trigger those 300k+ scores, but I’ve been having fun with this level nonetheless! Here’s a video of 284070 using the strategy I gave above:
Sorry if I missed this elsewhere because I don’t read all comments on all levels every week. What has happened to all the player videos that used to post above the top of the comments section? I’ve maybe seen 1-2 IN comments but gone are the ubiquitous 5-6 with and without powerup videos. I find I do much better replicating when I’ve got a visual (as opposed to only a five paragraph written description.) After the video I get additional help from written. Did every player coincidently decide NOT to post videos or has there been a rule change? Unfortunate it’s during a week I’m doing very poorly with no explanation I can think of. (Glitch aside.) As for glitches – I’m of the “not-allowed” opinion. ESPECIALLY because they end up getting fixed or are generally next to impossible to replicate. (The counter where one has to knock a ship’s anchor a certain way – YEARS I’ve tried. Or the Santa Glitch that disappeared after update.) Either EVERYONE can make it happen and they remain available FOREVER – or the scores don’t count. Good luck, all, and Happy New Year! My 2016 AB goal is never miss a Tournament week so my rank is genuine. : )
what is blue stacks???
