Our strategy for Angry Birds Seasons The Pig Days Level 2-8 is to fling the red bird through the fire pit towards the king pig. Then send the blue birds towards the left golden disc. Finally, clear the remaining pigs with the yellow bird. The score in the video below is 119,990.
Note: This level celebrates the first untethered manned flight of a hot air balloon, in Paris, France on 21 November 1783.

- Bonus! Our The Pig Days level 2-8 Mighty Eagle walkthrough is live as well!
122200 with this method:
Red Bird to the left-middle of the Hot Air Balloon. Strips a little bit of glass from the left side (And the red balloon may be popped).
The Blues to the same spot, clearing most of the level (With luck, it went through all 3 exploding coins on the balloon, and to the fireworks. This barely cleared the level and barely popped King Pig).
Yellow Bird to any other standing pig (Mine was a pig from the red balloon’s rope.)
Higher scores CAN be achieved.
Also, This isn’t an alternate strategy because I believe a LOT of luck was involved. You can try it, though.
I used the same approach, trying to clear the way for yellow to reach top right pigs. But they slowly dropped without the need for a third bird.30k bonus and 131k.
1. Red Bird into the left gold disc and destroys it along with most of the items on the left side and the hanging pigs under the 3 discs.
2. Arc the Blue Birds into same area destroying the remaining two gold discs and activated the rockets. The rockets hit the floating red structure and gold ring and the falling debris destroyed the King Pig and some of the structure.
3. Three bonus birds for 30,000
same method as you mentioned here @wrw01. Didn’t do as well. So far 119k. Again thanks!!
2 birds left, 122k
2 birds left, 122k
My 130,070 played out just as @wrw01 described but obviously with a lot more destruction. First bird into left most coin,detonating it so it releases those pink dangly thingies (what are they!) killing pigs below. Send blues high into what remains of the balloon to get the last 2 coins which fires up the rockets. The top right pig and ring was actually destroyed during the exploding coin damage. The lovely carnage below was all down to some well placed….read “lucky” rocket explosions which pretty much wiped the floor clean.
Is anybody else having a problem writing in their box? This is the 2nd day it’s happened. I can’t see what I’ve just written as it disappears off the side of the screen…..weird. I’m just going to have to hit send and hope there’s no mistakes.
@jlz-666, to me those pink dangling things look like upside down cotton candy
On about 3rd try without peeking, managed a barely 3* of 117k with 2 birds, disappointing actually when I now see these scores
Of course @justpast40 …….Why wouldn’t there be upside down cotton candy hanging from the clouds;) I can’t zoom in enough on my phone but for all the world they look like pink rats!
Looks like you got out of the teens so well done! I would hate to rain on anyone’s high scoring strat parade but I’m pretty sure this is in the hands of Lady Luck and where those rockets end up. I’ve tried and tried again and just can’t get near my 130k score.
@jlz-666, I can see how they’d look like upside down pink rats now that I’ve looked again at the “body” shape & why either would be hanging from a cloud is something we may never know ; -), however, I definitely understand what you’re saying/seeing. I played on an itty bitty HTC Droid Incredible before my Motorola Razr Maxx & now play mostly on iPad. Now that HTC DINC was 1 small screen. How I ever managed to find the correct aiming points for a Top 100, let alone a Top 50 or Top 10 score is truly amazing!
Same 2 bird method, bettered score to 127k!! Luck needed in first shot, to have rockets, take out upper left shelf with pigs, and damage to right side of lass balloon!! Fun level!!
Looks like a one-birder is possible here. If you send the red bird under the red balloon, it crashes into the concrete which sets off the rockets, potentially clearing the level.
(Please excuse the double post. It was on a different note.)
I didn’t manage a one-birder (would probably require some insane luck), but I did utilize the under-the-balloon method with the blues sent straight into the gold discs for a two-birder netting 124k for now.
127960 w/2, similar to @wrw01, but knocked down the little platform with flying glass. Not sure if I got 3k ring in the upper cloud, but based on the 130k+ scores, I’m guessing not. It looks like the top scores will be for those who get best rocket destruction.
Mixture of @wrw01 @jlz-666 & lucky rocket explosions – actually left only one piece of debris behind from what I could see on my iphone screen. Red took out the first yellow coin/disc so blues got better penetration through what was left
Same method i think for this level.
Nos waiting for Thanksgiving! I’m excited :)
I got 134340 with two birds with a strategy similar to the walkthrough’s first two shot.
I sent the first bird slightly lower than the video (almost horizontal) so that it cuts through the rope about 1/3 the way down from the pigs that are attached to the red balloon. But the key difference is Red needs to go on through to hit the cement blocks to knock them over in both directions. For me, this caused more damage overall because the left cement blocks will fall left dropping the King Pig and damaging the ham structure, while the back vertical stack falls right. This may or may not unleash the rockets. On my high score of 134340 it did not cause the rockets to fire, rather cut the left cable holding them causing it land on a tilt.
Second birds to the left coin and split just before contact. You need to get all the coins and hope one or two of the blues land on the rocket structure setting them off. I got extremely lucky and the rockets flew up just right to drop the top right pigs and golden 3K ring ;-)
Here’s my screenshot:
I did manage a two birdie the other way as everyone else but the cement structure doesn’t like to fall that way very often…unless you get lucky and the rockets knock them over.
If you can’t get the “Lucky Rocket” shot…you can still get a decent score with four birds. On my previous high score of 126K/127K, I used my same first two shots but also used the YB to get the top right remaining pigs and ring. I then threw Stella in to pick up the cement blocks to crush remaining debris/rockets. I always ended up with a higher score using Stella, even when I had finished the level in three birds.
Finally got around to collect my videos and get the rest Pigs days so far on YouTube. That’s the beauty of the Nest, we all fly all over the place and I am sure there are or will be Nesters flying by these older Pigs Days levels like I am.
Much like the video on top but I got lucky with the fireworks (ugh they are so unpredictable and one needs to pray to the AB gods for them to go the right way), so only needed 2 birds. Red thru the rope holding the 4 pigs and balloons and the blues towards the gold coins inside the blue balloons and split at the last second. I got a score of 128660 this way.
Here is my my video.
@e-star, watched your top video and K-Blam!!! Left the center gold shield, too.
Thanks for the video again @e-star and all who posted tips and strats, I’m taking it all in and praying to the AngrybirdsGoddess for some luck :D ?
ONE birder. Wish I could say there was any skill involved, but alas just sheer dumb luck, red through the rope knocking the stones into the fireworks pit, igniting fireworks which took out coins and floating pigs. Top score for now but missed the gold ring so score can be beaten.
Got the lucky 1-birder. Cut the rope, toppled the stones and the fireworks took out the rest. Not a skill shot, just a lot of flinging…
@admins Weeee-oooo-weeee-oooo! Foul play in aisle 2-8 and 2-12 by @jimthepurple! Possibly 2-11 too, hard to say.
@jimthepurple could you please upload a picture showing your highscreen, for the games 2-8, 2-11 and 2-12 of this episode?
@angrychicken did you flag these scores?
@bernersenn I did not, but have done so now. Sorry to say it but in my experience flagging scores never leads to them being removed, while mentioning the admins directly does.
@angrychicken scores removing is done quickly. I think we have to ask for the score proof first. If that doesn’t come …
since I am doing also other things, could you sent me a reminder, let’s say tomorrow night?
@bernersenn Will do.
Help me out. Where do I upload screen shots?
@jimthepurple, as the rules say, you must provide a screenshot of the three-star tally screen to earn the trophy or underdog during the daily challenge.
Even if you could replay the level and end up with a lower score, your highscore will still appear.
See my example here: https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/sweetp/album/picture/19698/
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

@sweetp Where does it say that you MUST provide a tally screenshot to earn a trophy? To my knowledge this has always been a courtesy on the player’s part, like with written strategies/tips.
Okay, I think I figured it out. You should be able to find three pictures in my profile’s album.
@jimthepurple I think the screenshots are valid. I do want to ask the opinion from the other @admins – I’m not 100% sure.
