Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 17-7

Mine and Dine level 17-7 is one of the most difficult levels in the entire Angry Birds app to earn 3 stars. The best strategy is to lob the Boomerang bird over the structure and spin it back through the wooden block on the right side. Ideally, the Boomerang bird should go far enough so as to break the hollow wooden square within. In any event, the whole right side should be cleared with significant damage. Fire a Yellow bird horizontally, through both pieces of wood on the left side. To earn 3 stars, it is important to break the jewel in the trough. Be careful of the encased pig that falls leftward, since he doesn’t always pop. The score in the video below is 125,200.

Ha! It took me forever to get 97k. Thought I had three stars. Alas, I had 1. Finally made it to 113k, shocked to see it was only 2 stars.

123k is insane. Challenging level.

BTW: once, the right side fell on it’s own, but I can’t get that repeat.

Yes, the right side just fell for me too — even with that, I failed the level, though. :-)

Indeed – that second shot is so hard, and most of the time when you get it, it doesn’t give you the points you need. Took me at least 200 goes before I finally got 3 stars.

Toughest level of the whole episode. Rather easy to get 119,000 points. After ‘thousands’ attempts I finally managed to get 124,830 points and three stars and the last golden egg.
Rovio: keep up the good work. We need more of these levels.

I haven’t even done this level yet and I already feel how long this will take. The method shown in the walkthrough requires two projectiles that not only just hit the right part on the outside, but also on the inside. :O

By Nate

Yeah, this level is way too hard. The few times I hit exactly where I need to, I still don’t get enough points for 3 stars. Can’t seem to pass 120k. I don’t like these levels where everything has to fall ‘just right’.

By Ian

This level is nuts. Before coming here I tried for ages to achieve the two bird destruction shown in the video. I was convinced that was the three star secret. I eventually got both shots to land correctly, brought the whole structure down, got all the pigs, got the jewel, got 20,000 bonus for two birds unused: score 114,500 points, and…only one star? WTF?

Keep at it. The threshold is very high, which I like. I can get 3 stars about 25% of the time now.

You jest here I think.. Even if you can complete this level with 2 birds 25% of the time, 90% of the time, it doesn’t result in enough points for the 123K 3 star score…

By BigBird

He probably doesn’t “jest here.” Slim’s a very good player. It seems like, based on comment here and others I’ve seen, you are pretty skeptical of a lot of people.

By Jay

127,660 using method shown in video. I’m quite glad I don’t know how many attempts it took because I would be horrified at how much time I spent just playing this level.

Yeah, definitely one of the toughest to 3-star I’ve seen in awhile. I’ve hit everything perfectly as in the video many times. Most of the time the stupid little pig in the wood square survives the second shot. Even when he doesn’t, I’m topped out at 122,500–meh! Okay, off to conquer this thing once and for all…


I have 115K+ and still only one star. Is it possible my update isn’t working correctly?

Rank: Sling God with 32120 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)Score: 126,470

Your update is fine. If you check the gold bar under the video walkthrough, it lists the minimum 3-star score (123k here).


Thank you sir, I’ll keep at it.

By rme7d8

Just nuts. I don’t mind requiring accurate shots – but this just relies too much on luck. No one can claim skill got them a 3 star score on this one. Two identical shots get different results.

Rank: Sling God with 32120 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)Score: 126,470

I don’t think that’s true. The first shot’s result can be seen pretty clearly. The only “luck” I see is if the left piggy within the wooden block falls off the butte.

By rme7d8

The first shot produces pretty consistent results – the second one is random (luck) – like you said – there is no rhyme/reason why/when block breaks.


I finally got 3 stars after a couple days of trying, but there have been several other levels I’ve spent more time on reaching that goal. I thank this site for the help it provides. Now all I have to do is get that dang smash maniac award!

I was concerned about my update a few posts above because the very first post on this board mentioned getting 2 stars with only 113K and it took me 118K to get 2. I have strange question: are the top several people on the leaderboard, who have seemingly impossible scores, the creators of the game or what?

Rank: Sling God with 32120 points

On our Leaderboards? I don’t think we have any Rovio employees on here. The top score for this level (137k) is under review. Otherwise, 132k is certainly possible with some luck.

By Jim Markham

I think this level is impossible. I got a little over 121,000 and I think that was a miracle. I’ve been trying for days and feel like I will never get 123K. It’s just way too hard.

It is not impossible. BirdLeader, FujiToast and I have each received 3-stars on this level (along with many others, if you check the leaderboard)

Ok. I finally got 123K. I really thought it might take weeks and that I would go crazy in the meantime. I truely feel like a geek now.

129,770, 2 birds same as the video with barely any debris left. 131-132k is possible with a little bit more damage. The top score of 137k just seems out of range (unless there is 1-birder). Please remove this score or at least request proof of score from the owner. Thanks, just trying to make the leaderboards a more legit place. :)

I like these kinds of levels. Once you figure the angles, it’s very doable. I don’t like when you get 3 stars basically just for clearing the level. That’s no fun.

I believe you need above 50,000 with the first bird. I might have
received ~56,000 once, but it was just over 53,000 for the above
score. The second bird should be boosted somewhere after halfway
through its flight. It ended up under the pig in the square and
helped roll it to the left off the ledge.

By Jim Markham

It took me a couple days and many many trys like most people to get 123K but I have to share with you my friends story. It might make you a little sick. He got 125K in about 10 trys or less. He had the right idea without seeing the walkthrough. He got 122K in about 7 trys and then 125K in one or two more trys. Gee I guess it’s not that hard after all.

Wow, after twenty eight tries, finally go it, this is even before I checked the video. Definitely a tough one. Trick is to make sure the first bird hits the far right vertical wood piece dead center to get a minimum score of 55k. I got over 56k. Second bird not only needs to be angled perfectly, need to tap the screen immediately after launch to get enough power to hit the two left most lower pieces of wood. The extra power also translate to more of the concrete members tumbling. Two birds remaining.

Yep this statement/strat is truly confirmed. My best try on the first shot was 58K+, but I couldn’t combine it with a perfect second shot means pigs, debris (and cristal) cleaning. Very hard to go even over average…

Was just going to post that this is soooo tough, but then just got 127,600. Thank God! Now if I could just get #15!

This is by far the toughest one to achieve! I’ve spent days, and many hours on this baby! If I get the first shot, I screw up the second shot! Geez!! Everyone is right. You have to have 2 perfect shots on this one to get the 3 stars. This is so frustrating.

This was my last board to get 3 stars. The hardest. I spent days, making one shot, screwing the other one up. I got 125k, but will go back much later to get more points!! Whew!

By Dave

My network blocks streaming media, so let me see if I have the gist of it, the first green bird needs to break on the right side wooden wall, bringing down the whole right side, and the second yellow needs to smash through the first two lower wooden blocks for the left side? I’ve done this about 200 times and only got 122530! so close…yet so far. I can’t be consistent with the green bird!

Hahahahah, first try after posting this and i finally got 123420!!

I’ve not resorted to a walkthrough in a while but this level has been kicking my butt. I thought there must be some magic bullet I’ve been overlooking. But no… I’m supposed to do exactly what I’ve been doing, successfully, to get my current high score of 122810!! Yes, I’m 190 points away from three stars. Gah. Will keep plugging away I guess.

Jenna, I guess I’m just not ANGRY enough, yet. That’s something that I’ve found to be a secret to my success in these games. At first, I’m just timid, and trying to get ‘er done. But I’ve found that once I’m just ANGRY and go for as much destruction as I can, that’s when the points REALLY show up! ;)

By anonymous

OMG, I can get the two shot, but I can’t get that little pig in the box on the left side to break. The box just drops straight down and sits there, taunting me. Is there anything else I can do? I can’t get a high enough score using a third bird.

Argh, this level makes me want to slash my wrists. I seem to be even worse at this than everyone else who’s complaining. After about a few days and probably more than 1000 tries, stuck at 110,290, I finally scored 120,060… losing only because the damned amethyst didn’t break. Been at it for another hour, and still haven’t even beat 110,000 again.

Stick with it…, very ‘fine’ adjustments needed to get it on the exact spot…, then no guaranty it’ll fall the way you need, but at least you’ll have the angle right. Keep pluggin’,
