Angry Birds Poached Eggs 3 Star Walkthrough Level 3-18

Our strategy for Poached Eggs level 3-18 is to fire the Red bird toward the top of the first tower, dropping the TNT on the main structure. Launch the first Yellow bird through the leg of the last tower, dropping its TNT on the last pig. Use the next Yellow bird to clear some debris on the bridge, then bomb the exposed area with the White bird. The chain reaction of TNT explosions under the bridge will clear the remaining pigs. The score in the video below is 89,980.

@eggomaniac I would want that to, but currently the system rips any html like that out of the equation. So as @playdbird mention, the “right click open in new tab/window” is the way to go for now.

@e-star here is yet another thanks. Yes, these are four years old but still so apropos for those of us making another run. ABO was my first experience tracking scores but I wasn’t competitive like in RIO and Space. In fact I rarely even came to the comments unless i really couldn’t get a 3-star on my own. Now that I’m coming back through, I realize how many awesome videos you have from days gone by.

one tweak though, I was having trouble getting the white bird to act like yours so I came up with an alternate. First two just like your video. Sometimes the first TNT throws a rock over to the second tower and collapses it like your second shot, but I haven’t figured out how to capitalize on it yet. After the second shot the structure should still be standing in the center sections.
Third YB I a lob to the middle breaking the center board and killing the big pig, and exposing the stone platform. White Bird – lob and bomb that stone, something will fall and hit the TNT, and its over. last 4 out of 5 netted > 95K and it is super-repeatable.

I also had some limited success with E-star’s video today, I say limited because my Birds are very lethargic today (maybe they’re having an allergic reaction to pork), who wouldn’t if all you ate was pork, pork and more pork. E-star’s videos are always on the money. Thank you @e-star.

I figure scores well over 100k must be one or two birders. I imagine the best way to do that would be to get first TNT to land somewhere on the bridge, hoping the lower TNTs ore ignited. So, I did my first bird the same as walkthrough. I find it best not to pull red all the way back, a soft launch is less likely to prematurely set off TNT. I haven’t yet set off lower TNT with first shot, but I always proceed with second bird to far TNT, aiming low so TNT lands on bridge, again hoping to set off lower TNT. I haven’t yet accomplished that either, but I did end up with good destruction and finished off with third bird for 102k.

It is just a matter of time….

1st to far right tower to get 15k+. 2nd high, behind left tower (to second pig from the left, the first helmeted one, clearing a pathway for the tnt with the 3rd). 3rd onto the small stone on top of the left tower (without immediately detonating tnt). the 3rd should push the left tower making it fall to the right, and the tnt should detonate low (thanks to the 2nd), setting off the other tnts. this should give scores in the 100-110k range.
that is, the idea is to set off the chain reaction by making one of the tnts fall all the way down. to prepare for that, first the relevant part of the bridge must be cleared. i guess, this level can be done with two in that way, but then you must be lucky to set off the tnt in the other tower by flying debris to get high (110k+) scores or …?

Great strat and the one I used long ago. the way to get the far right tower to fall is to land the red bird on the “roof” of the bridge at the far right end. For the YB you need to employ the dead head chuck method so that the TNT doesn’t get ‘sploded.

WOHOOO! 111k with two birds! I have to admit that it was pretty much pure luck, ’cause I had tried the same method several times but always ended up using 4 birds. So here’s what I did:

The first bird – I aimed it towards the end of the horizontal wood plank just beow the first TNT. The tower fell and when the TNT detonated it destroyed the metal piece under the first pig. I was just aiming the second bird when the structure began to fall to the left and all the lower TNT’s detonated. All that was left was the right-most tower and the last pig next to it.

Second bird – I used it to cut the vertical wood plank next to the last pig and the tower fell, TNT detonated and the pig was dead.

Got 81k with those two birds and then the 30k more from the birds left :D

@yellow-dog-24 – Happy to help (if my previous post actually helps anyone) :) One tip more:

Try to hit pretty much in between the tiny stone block and the horizontal wooden plan below the TNT. If you hit the stone block it will detonate the TNT before the tower falls and that helps nothing. If you manage to find the sweet spot, the first tower will fall and the TNT will hit the first slightly diagonal wooden plank above the second pig. When I got my highscore, the explosion shook the whole structure and the it started falling. I can tell you that it really took some patience, but the it was worth it :)

When I shot the first bird and then everything started to fall, I was pretty much like “WHAT is happening?!” And then it left me with an easy second bird shot with only one piggie alive :D

All I can say is: Good luck and don’t give up!

@bonneypattycat – Don’t take it so hard! I did the same, just keep trying and when you get the first bird to cause enough damage, just shoot the yellow a bit higher and if needed, speed it a little later so that you hit the vertical plank which is holding the tower! You can do it!

First bird at left tower,hitting horizontal wood plank under tnt,sending tnt into bridge below first helmeted pig. The bridge came apart,setting off the 3 tnt’s under bridge. Only the pig on the far right was left.I fired yellow bird just above pig to hit the bottom of the far right tower.The tower collapsed,falling to the left & dropping tnt into pit of debris. 3 birds left for extra 30,000 points.

I wish I knew how to take video on my PC, I am playing via Facebook and this strat is without power ups.

RB- hit the first tower just above center and it somehow made all the arches over the pigs break and made the other tower go off. Then I used YB to go up high and come down in the center. after the center TNT went off everything exploded, all dead!

A modest strategy for breaking into the Top 100 for this level with a two birder: lob Red directly into the small left-side cement piece next to the left tower’s tnt. The goal is to have both the tnt fall and explode below at one of the diagonal wood planks atop the left side of the bridge, AND have the small right-side cement piece to the right of that tnt shoot across the field, knocking over and destroying the right tower and killing the right-most pig. If the cement piece doesn’t shoot across to destroy the right tower, reset. Send YB high arc, then accelerate onto the second helmeted pig from the left. The goal is to unsettle the cement plank below that pig and set off the remaining tnts. Increased my score 3K from 105K to 108K. Best of luck.

Just a shout out for a 3 bird approach using Classics. TNT creates a small opening for the 2nd bird to blow up the lower TNTs and the third bird takes down the other tower. A very lucky 2 bird variation would clearly go past 120k.
