Angry Birds Seasons Year of the Dragon Level 1-12 Walkthrough

One strategy for Year of the Dragon level 1-12 is to arc the Yellow bird into the far-right TNT. The explosion should clear at least the last pig and cause significant damage to the other two circles on that side. Launch the White bird towards the junction of the first and second circles, bombing as late as possible. This should clear the entire left side. Arc the Boomerang bird over the level and spin it back into the remaining pigs. The score in the video below is 101,830.

I tried something slightly different after being stuck at 99,000: yellow bird flat trajectory to far right pig with enough to ignite rocket and set off TNT, then white bird low to first pig launching close enough for bounce up to top pig. Debris should fall over the cliff and set off rockets and middle TNT, eliminating the remainder of the right structure with its pigs. Two birds left for that all important 20000 bonus. Aloha.

1 bird, straight into first structure, debris fell to the right and hit tnt which collapsed structure on the right.

Alternative method that has the potential for 1 birder, as arseel mentioned above;

1st bird: Into the join between the bottom two “circles”. Yellow bird should fall down into the gap and take out bottom pig. Debris should collapse in as well. Occasionally some will fall to the right as well, with the potential to take out the tnt and the fireworks could finish of the other pigs. If this doesn’t happen, you need:
2nd bird: fire over where the first structure was, and drop the bomb between the bottom two “circles”. This should destroy the bottom tnt, and debris can destroy the other tnt as well.

I used two birds for 111k :)

Thanks @e-star for Video #2.

I just got pretty lucky with a 2-birder during this Challenge for 120580 flinging on iPad …. an 11k improvement from Android phone’s 109k. The 1st shot was low, just as your video but a little debris rolled right over the “ledge” onto the 2 firecrackers on the left of right structure setting off TNT & slightly destabilizing the right side. I hate WB, but this time with 2nd shot Matilda cooperated & I smiled to myself as the score crept over 100k.

First bird straight through bottom left pig.Everything collapses into hole..score NEEDS to be at 50000 or just over.
Wite bird full pull back to drop just on top of flat spot..detonate within pixels so carcass shoots right,hits debris and catapaults end over end into tnt and fireworks on right side. The entire right side is now gone with only tinder remains left in both strike zones. This was a progressive method that evolved over several hours. After coming here I see @e-star has a video showing it. the last 2 birds give you the beauty 20000.

@sal9 I had it a couple of times, but without the right fireworks, so only got around 105k. It is possible, but requires A LOT of luck :)

@kathy these levels seem to be easier to pass, but to get high scores is pure luck on about half of them, which is a bit annoying! :)

I was able to get 51K in the first birds.
Because it was not affected the left side in the second birds, I felt it if the first bird was important.
Thank you!

Thanks @laurence for the posting of your strategy. Worked great. With the debris destruction there is some luck involved in getting the higher points. With the second bird dropped the egg on the flat spot of the bottom circle produced a more consistent roll up of the shell to the upper tnt box.

The point of the first shot is to hit the TNT at the far right. The exact timing of the Yellow bird isn’t really critical to see.

Clearing the pigs out but not getting enough collateral damage to get a really great score. Trying to beat the minimum of 105,954 but can’t get close to my previous high of 99,260.

Finally got the lucky shot I needed to beat the average. Put the first bird in the crease between the first 2 circles and everything collapsed from there. Played that shot a hundred times without anything close to that happening. Glad it did.

111,480 1st bird as per Laurence, but 2nd bird was used to knock debris onto same TNT that Laurence said to egg bomb.

That’s one hell of a score, @moonsabre. I know it’s an old level, and I absolutely believe your score, but I imagine that getting 9k over the next-best score took something extremely rare happening. Is there a good story here, or was it simply a case of the fireworks flying into the perfect spots to cause total annihilation?

Rank: Slinger with 1045 points
By moonsabre (@moonsabre)Score: 132,030

@AustinRHL, sadly it was just a case of the fireworks flying into the right spots, it was just a Nev bomb to the back (aim close to the sling and immediate tap). It was a rare case that at both the top and bottom areas that the debris wasn’t being held up.

@moonsabre, thanks for the explanation. This level can be a little frustrating when getting the debris to fall all the way to the ground is mostly a matter of chance, so I imagine you were pretty dumbfounded when you saw it all falling perfectly! I guess being a consistent top scorer is sometimes pure skill but also sometimes a combination of skill and good fortune. :)

By moonsabre (@moonsabre)Score: 132,030

@AustinRHL, I always say it’s 5% skill, 95% luck. Even the same constant shots always yield completely different results. This is especially true of one birder levels as the blocks have to fall completely right. Dumbfounded is putting it lightly when it worked so well =)

@hunnybunny The ‘Nev bomb’ is what we refer to as the ‘moonshot’ or shooting the moonb, lining up yb close to the sling and activating right away. I thought it was named after Moonsabre ,
and I thought ‘Nev’ reffered to Nevada ..
I think the shot got renamed after Nev left and Moonsabre was left to explain different strats using that shot.
@ernor63 please correct me if I’ve got it wrong?

Yes @kathy the Nev-bomb is what we NOW call a true “moonshot”, but I. The early pre-knichy days I’ve seen just lobbing chuck high and accelerating on the way down also called a moonshot. It was confusing at first but I think I finally learneded it. I learneded it real good!
I can see where, if ten thousand monkeys had ten thousand phones and ten thousand years, the rocks and rockets could go the right way, or in this case 100 million flingers and 5 years. I just want to be one of those lucky monkeys 8*(

Every time I try this level, it keeps going indefinite time (I don’t use the skip). It’s so irritating to do… (Yes, I’m using the newest build on iOS for this (as of 8/12/2021))

Also, here’s my tips:

1st Bird: Use Chuck to hit the farthest rockets and TNTs. This’ll destroy most of the right part of the level.
2nd Bird, Use Matilda, and drop the egg bomb near the front structure in front of the slingshot.
3rd Bird: Use Hal to hit the stone block remaining on the left side, knock it over and then it should kill the remaining pigs.

The second Chuck is not needed to win this. Only use it if you have at least 1-2 remaining.

Also, if anyone knows how to fix this IRRITATING indefinite glitch, please tell me.
