Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 17-3

Our strategy for Mine and Dine level 17-3 is to fire the Boomerang bird head-on into the vertical blocks of ice in the left structure, causing the tower to fall to the right. If the TNT in the middle does not trigger, lob a White bird to bomb it and ricochet into the bottom-left of the right structure. With the remaining birds, topple the right tower. The score in the video below is 110,330.

Does anyone have any tips for the Eagle on this one? I destroyed what I thought was everything and only got 97%. Frustrating!

With the regular birds I destroy as much of the structure as possible and with the Mighty Eagle I focus on getting rid of the boulders all the way on the left side.

Has that worked? I’ve destroyed everything visible and seen 90%!! This is the last feather I need, and can’t seem to break 98%…

Yes, as per standard protocol…I posted the above comment and got the feather 3 tries later…go figure! It does seem that the rocks on the left are the key…I placed the can right on the first big rock and that cleared it! Thx Victor!

Victor, you ROCK! Many, many thanks. Took a few tries to place the sardines just right, but got there in the end. Thanks again.


I’m shocked there’s not more comments on getting the 110k for 3 stars…pretty difficult using the method on the video.

I may have been lucky with this level using two birds. I shot the first (green boomerang) bird at the horizontal glass piece. That not only destroyed the first structure, but the crystal and first TNT box as well. I aimed the second (white) bird in a much lower arc than shown in the video to drop its egg on the horizontal glass piece in the second structure. That destroyed the rest of the pigs, most of the structure, as well as the last TNT box.

I must agree with @drew3rdof3 on this one, it’s a repeatable method and yields higher scores than the video, if you’re looking for instant 3 stars as well as higher than average scores, this is the way to go.

Nice one @comex666. Same here. I found also that the reverse remi is not required and that it is a help to get circa 60k with the first.

128740 with 2 birds.

As described my @comex666, with the bloated Matilda trick

In my case a good part of the right structure toppled to the right along with Matilda.

Here is the final result for the Daily Challenge.

Actually I found this as a pretty easy 2 bird level.. Using the 1st boomerang bird the same as the video but make sure it destroys both the jewel and the TNT behind the 1st structure.(should net around 54K).. The 2nd bird should go just over the big helmeted pig and drop and slam into the 2nd structure destroying it all.. My best here so far is 120810 using my iPhone…

Nice outline of the strategy, I definitely believe for “multi-bird” levels it’s important to state the intermediate scores to help someone know if they should continue. I targeted 54K as my “restart” threshold and I hit 58K with my first bird and hit a good second to get to 104460 + the 2x10K for the bonus birds

That’s probably the best approach.
I like using the remi shot to topple the first tower. It yields around 54k-58k.
Second bird as @pjdambra described. Aiming for that glass corner, releasing the egg at the very last second.

Releasing the egg at the last second for the second shot worked best for me, it took a lot of tries though. Thanks for the tips.

1. Boomerang bird with sal9’s reverse remi shot towards the horizontal glass plank. At times some debris may fly over and hit the two shovels on the left. The tnt and jewels are a must. Would reset lower than 54k.
2. White bird as pjdambra described above but into the glass “L” with Kartflyer’s tip of release the egg at the last second provided my best score.
3. Red bird = bonus
4. Yellow bird = bonus
Gained 8k in points.

My first shot is to send the Boomerang up in a high, tight arc, so when it drops down the right side of the left structure, I trigger a gentle arc that slams into the two thin, vertical supports, and the thicker block they rest on. I use the White bird as you’ve described. Fairly easy 2- birder.

Was about to get 3 stars, then a phone call came in right before it registered. Now I have to try and get it again and it’s taking forever. SO.ANNOYING.

By luis

the easiest way is with the green bird shooting very vertical to break the two vertical timbers and then with the white bird shooting over the helmet pig destroying the tower … and all collapses and 113,000 and 3 stars

Shouldn’t this be added to the bugs and glitches list? With all of these evidences, it seems confirmed now.

I believe the bugs lust is mainly for problems that affect gameplay in someway. As this problem sorts itself out without any action required, it may not be considered necessary to add it to the list. Only a thought.

Laurence beat me to the punch, basically verbatim.

While this is indeed a glitch, it always corrects itself immediately. So it isn’t much of a glitch at all when you think of it.

Bigger bugs are, for example, a Golden Egg missing from PC (see Bug 31).

It can be 2-bird deal if the first bird’s mayhem can trigger the TNT, then the 2nd bird can bomb at the furthest structure to trigger the full-scale collapse.

I 2 birded this level repeatedly tonight, scores varied at first between 106k and 114k so I kept at it ’til finally I hit 118k. I fired the white bird whether the tnt in the center chasm had blown-up or not, in a normal low arc to bomb the helmeted pig from above and the white bird kept going toppling the entire structure towards the right chasm and detonating the tnt at the bottom. I found that it did more damage this way. I can probably do a higher score, but I’m too tired right now.

By king

1st: same as this walk through, fire the Boomerang bird head-on into the vertical blocks of ice in the left structure, causing the tower to fall to the right.
2nd: shot the white bird at around 30 degree and drop the egg on the big pig with helmet
113590 and got 3 stars

124140 – Best scores above 120000 by hitting two vertical blocks of ice and getting the hard hat of leftmost piggie to fall under the hollow concrete block, sending it to the left for additional destruction, hard but repeatable, then looping white bird low and releasing bomb at the last moment at highest juncture of ice on remaining structure, hopefully sending the rest right.

If you are trying to get an above average score, here is what I’ve found:

1) Your first bird has to take out most of the left tower, but definitely all pigs, the crystals and TNT–preferably with a score around 55,000. (My best luck was aiming the first bird at almost a direct hit to the horizontal blue glass bar.) if this doesn’t happen, just start over.

2) on the bombing white bird, like others have said,try to aim for the corner of the blue glass beams of the second structure and drop the bomb at the last possible second. This is key. I usually waited a micro-second too long and lost the chance to bomb. Very frustrating indeed!

To get above 120,000 overall, my experience is that you have to knock over the two lower “support” pillars on the right tower. It’s not easy….but if you persist you can do it. It’s really all about getting that bomb as close to the corner of the blue glass as you can!

Good luck!

BodhiMama’s description here is spot on, including the point threshold after the first shot. TNT not absolutely necessary though. I found that aiming for the high side of the horizontal glass beam worked better for me, as this pushed more debris into the central pit, and that increased the chances of getting the crystal and TNT. In fact, one can go just above the glass beam on the initial hit, as long as it ultimately got destroyed in the tower collapse.
