For Ragnahog level 7, we were able to secure three stars and 120790 using the strategy presented in the video below.
First, fire red straight ahead into the flag. He doesn’t do much, but destabilizes the house for your third shot. Next throw Stella up to the middle of the left side of the roof. We use a fairly shallow arc for her. Then Chuck follows on a slightly higher trajectory, activating to kill the Big Pig and start the collapse of the remaining features. When the stove blows, the rest goes! Big Red remains seated for an extra 10K.
Slightly different strategy. First bird to the bottom of the lower stack, underneath the green flag. This causes a collapse, sometimes triggering the stove. Pink to the debris left from the collapse to clear the lower shelf. Yellow to the top, through what I assume is supposed to be a horn but to me resembles an over-ripe banana. Then last bird through gap made by the previous, hopefully clearing the whole caboodle.
What about the kit with that caboodle?
Alternative 3 shot strategy
First shot anywhere to the left, but you don’t want the stove to blow as you’re saving it for the third shot.
Stella through the musk ox horn/over-ripe banana ( @bikkit ) and roll down slightly. You can lave her to self activate. She needs to lift the top of the structure and flip it over to clear the way for Chuck.
Moon shot Chuck and on his way down speed him into the top of the rock so anything left attached falls down, destabilising the stove and blowing whatever’s left all over the place.
@pauliboy I wish I hadn’t noticed that resemblance, I can now never watch any Viking show again without looking out for evidence of their visits to the fruitmongers!
Nice strat @pauliboy – 5 Flings’s to almost avg, I see potential for shot 2 to drop stuff on the stove.
Ahh, I guess I could have read more carefully. I had a hard time getting what is now a true “moonshot”, that is pointing straight up with immediate release, to actually drop on the big rock, so I was using a “High arc with a downward release” as was called a moonshot in the early days. So now 2K above average, until everybody starts reading your excellent strat and bumps up the average 8*).
@pauliboy which rock is Chuck accelerating down through? one of the boulders or the big Crystal in the middle with the Cross Beam?
oh and ty for the alternate , sorry I’m just a bit frustrated here :(:( got 124k but now only getting less than 120k tried every strat written:/
Feeling better Thanks @pauliboy i figured it out , with a little help from birdie friends ?? Love this Nest?
Thanks @pauliboy got this one on a daily quest. Could not get above 119k until I tried your strategy and was lucky enough to get a 2 birder for 135k. Many many thanks
1. Red straight ahead towards the pink pendant/flag.
2. Stella to lift the left side off the roof structure and then most of it collapsed.
Still plenty of debris left so maybe another 10k+ possible
How can I post a screenshot?
Upload the photo into your album then copy and paste it.
Thanks @triggerfish. My first screenshot upload did it work?
@andy-2 Yes I can see it. Excellent score btw!
For now maybe…..but I’ve had top scores before and they don’t last very long!
First bird slightly lower than the video, second bird to hit the horn on the left side of the roof, this lifted the roof and the whole lot came down and triggered the stove.
I don’t get it
Stella lifts part of the roof but not yet had the whole things collapse….nowhere near in fact
Red bird to the stone blocks lower left side. Pink bird to upper mid roof. Yellow bird to the stove. 121k
Why is there none of the great write-ups from @knichy today @admins?
@trishohara my fault. @knichy did deliver the write-ups.
How are people “lifting the roof”????
I hit the horn and Stella lifts a few triangular pieces, maybe a plank by a centimetre….that’s it
Good old Stella.
Sometimes she is a weakling and cant lift a feather.
Other times she’s a Russian power lifter.
Keep trying, she will get the job done sooner or later.
A first shot that seems to work well…..and @fatboyslick…..makes lifting the roof easier because the banana is gone and you can usually get most of the triangular pieces off. Aim at the left ripe banana so that red bumps down the roof. Often this will take the rocks down too.
Further detail……In order to get Stella to lift the roof completely, and flop it over; the key is to get the middle diagonal roof board to slide down a little. My shot to the ripe banana does that most times.
Here is an example of stella doing her russian power lift.
Here’a what I get:
^. ^. ^
Stella needs to lift the mustache pig in order to lift the entire roof
@mumsie42 lovely to see you flinging again. But who can resist The Advent?
Strategy for your excellent top score please….
Hi @hunnybunny – Sheer luck! First bird just under pink ‘flag’ then Stella to just under the banana and everything went! Two birds left – cannot remember last time I had a top score! Wonder how long it will last!
@mumsie42 thanks for the very quick reply. Hope all is well with you xx
Did i get it right, that there are no puppys in the winter challenge? Doesn´t matter.
So here the proof, that the strategy provided by @mumsie42 ist not pure luck:
– Red to the upper part of the upper stone on the roof
– emediately while the roof and supporting wall falls send Stella to the middle of the trangle roof under the left horn. Stella lifts it up imediatly (cause now it´s much lighter) catapulting it to the right side.
– the right lower roof breaks and pushes everything on the right down the slope, also pushing the bells. The roof itself falls down, pushing everything to the left. The stove detonates late and the debris flies everywhere
My tip: launch Stella quickly after the red bird.
Oh, just noticed, that i used the scope, which is not allowed, so i remove my score….but nevertheless, the strategy works fine.
@mumsie42 Thank you for posting your strategy. Was able to complete it a few times but the score was less. Had to destroy the banana or horn to obtain the proper lift of the right side.
I tried every strategy suggested here, but none of them worked for me. Finally, I ended up with something more or less repeatable: first bird to the bottom (under the green flag) as suggested by @bikkit . Stella to the roof, just above the upper little rock (as on walkthrough video). Chuck to the horisontal wooden plank where the mustached pig is sitting. The plank should break for everything to collapse.
It seems to me that to get 120,000+ scores the 2 cement bricks between the pink and green flags have to go over the left hand edge, otherwise they stop the rubble from reaching the edge and sliding down the left hand slope.
Here is my strategy to get rid of those pesky bricks — sling red through the green flag (without hitting the wood pole it is hanging on) — this slows red down so she pushes the left vertical wood pole into the right vertical wood pole and causes the entire left side to slowly fall to the left with the 2 cement bricks falling down the left hand slope, mission accomplished!
Now it is up to Stella to do her thing, good luck and…
Happy Holidays to all!
Thank you @stocktoad for the strategy. Nothing seemed to get me above average on this one and I played it for two days. Then I tried your “first bird to the banana” strategy and kept going with it until eventually I got a good score. It all worked as you said, with the horizontal board slipping enough to get Stella the Russian weightlifter to take the roof up and over. I’m glad to see the back of this one, but I expect the next one will be just as frustrating?
One little miracle with 2 birds.
Stella did a pretty good job ;-)
Here’s a video for a disappointing 124k but it shows how the roof is lifted. I did figure this out myself but then saw that others had done so as well so thanks to @stocktoad and anyone else who has contributed. Top score seems a long way off.
128k/4 This is a little bit different. The 4th bird gave a lot more than 10k by firing it into the debris.
137760 with two birds.
Same strategy as described by @stocktoad and used by many.
The only trick with Stella is that she must lift a small piece of wood that, falling on to the hanging island, will make the left and right fall down.
Triggering her just before or on contact is the way to go.
A lot of action is occurring out of screen, so it’s quite hard to judge the real potential of that level. 140k maybe.
Anyway here is the final result .
And this is highscore screenshot.
All the screenshots are also available in high res here in one set.
Definitely a difficult level to get above average. After 100s of attempts I only managed to do that twice.
i hit the lower stone on roof
stella hit the horn
