Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 17-8

Our strategy for Mine and Dine level 17-8 is to fire the first Red bird into the bottom-left corner of the structure. Launch the next Red bird into the top of the structure, causing it to topple rightward. With luck, all that remains are two small pigs in the middle of the level. Fire a Yellow bird or two into the center to clear the level. The score in the video below is 69,260.

73090 – different technique though. I sent the first bird on a low trajectory that flies VERY close to the structure but is designed to aim to hit the tip of the far top right block as it drops. This collapses a part of the right of the structure, killing two pigs. Then, I fired my second pig at the same place as the first one in the video above (ie left lower). The rest of the structure then collapsed for 53000 points, plus the bonus 20000 for the two leftover birds. Et voila!

After that ridiculously difficult 17-7 level, 17-8 looks to be an apology from ROVIO.. This is a very easy 3 star level that can be scored with 2 or 3 birds..

74,840 Whow I Really dont know how I did this. Unsure if I was on my 2nd or 3rd Bird, took a shot – looked away to watch the News.

Hi All — I am a new fan on the PC version. After Level 16, there is a panel saying “Coming Soon” for Level 17. I have sent a query to Rovio with no response. Does Level 17 exist on the PC version ? How is it installed ? Thanks Rontenfour

I actually one birded this for 82800, to say I was surprised is an understatement. I hit the second vertical support for the arch (the short board) and it shattered, everything just went from there.

Also possible to get in the 80K’s with two birds. Same first shot as fidslady, second bird to edge of lower remaining horizontal board. Then hope for the L-factor to kick in!

@Kartflyer @catsnbirds @fidslady I need help! The one-birder totally eludes me, even the 2-brider for >80K. Where exactly are you hitting. I am assuming “the second vertical support for the arch” refers to the 4th vertical board on the left?? But where on this board — top, bottom, or middle?

1. Red Bird similar to the video but higher. Hit the second from the bottom vertical wood post near the top where the horizontal board rests. It seems to produce better results for the second bird in that the first clears the path.
2. Red Bird in the same area but keep it high in the space to hit the remaining vertical supports to the right. All should fall, eventually.
3. Yellow Bird = bonus
4. Red Bird = bonus
Gained 9k+ in points.
Could not obtain the one-bird mentioned above but there is probably a “sweet spot” on that second post that lets everything fall.

I had more luck aiming the first red bird just above the second vertical board so it clips the horizontal board and then bounced down into the vertical boards. This aim is much more difficult but it does more damage to the left side and sometimes pushes the whole structure to the right as well. Only tried it this way for a little and manage almost 80k using 3 birds so there is a definite score increase possible if things fall correctly.

Alright done with this level 86k 2 birds using the strategy above. In this instance the structure didn’t get pushed to the right but the horizontal board in the middle was exposed. Straight shot to that with the second red bird and nice destruction followed.

Considering you only get 5 points for the FIRST comment you make on a page a day your statement makes no sense. Instead it’s called an “alternate strategy” and I’m letting people know how quickly I was able to improve my score so they will know it is effective.

The problem with levels like this one is that, in my experience, at least, if you don’t get the pigs just right, especially the little ones, they all seem to end up rolling around with a mound of debris on their heads. Makes me think of ’em as a bunch of demented 19th century charm school graduates! :-)

One shot on the horizontal wood bar above the first pig and with a huge amount of luck you can obtain such a high score. (at the ned, only two or three piece of wood are still there)

I see a very different 17-8 than what your screenshot shows. What’s that red thing where the far right pig is supposed to be??your dashboard shows the power up active?? I think your high score raises questions.

By Superfan2 (@mybusiness)Score: 88,710

I agree @pjdambra. 96K is questionable, especially if @cedlanz said he used one bird. I don’t know much about power-ups, I do know that the only bird capable of destroying that much is Mr. shockwave( or maybe a lucky orange bird.) However, destroying every block would probably give 66K, but if shockwave bird was added to the line that would give 5 birds, enough for 106K. I hate to think suspiciously, but maybe cedlanz wasted the firstred just for believability. Not to be a spoilsport, but I think this level is kinda lame. I’m outta here.

I know this very high score can be questionable, but I swear it was obtained as I said (with no power-up). The screenshot I put in my album was made later in order to justify it. It makes me sad if you think that I’ve tried to cheat.

@admins @bonneypattycat This level has become easier. @cedlanz you are maybe due an apology from @pjdambra

Here’s a pic of the 2nd high score. You can see there’s quite a bit more damage to be done. I think over 100k is possible as I have had middle 60’s with the small pig remaining.

@steviep147. Congrats Doc on your score. I came back to this level to see what was up here after reading your comment. Unfortunately after a few hours of tring I still couldn’t increase my score any. I did manage to 1bird it about 5 times and still couldn’t break my own 84k score? ( I’m still playing on my iPhone).
However I don’t believe a apology is coming from me for someone posting a screenshot image of their score in power up mode. If that don’t raise a red flag, I don’t know what will..

I know exactly what you mean. After banging on about it, far too much I suspect, @admins say it’s ok to have the power-ups button “ON” as long as you don’t post a score using one. It can apparently be more fun to see the little parcels etcetera. Can’t see it myself but I am a bit of a stickler or whatever else you would call someone like me!

Well I must say the Doctor got it right.. I looked at his pic and it came to me.. It’s not so much the trajectory, as I hit that same board hundreds of times before. It’s the Zoom OUT view that did the trick. I play on an iPhone and tend to play Zoomed IN most all the time. I think I’ll use this Out setting on more of my difficult levels.

I checked a couple of times to see if I had actually been playing the correct level. Did not seem right that I puppied after just a few flings. Well it was the correct one. Aimed at the upper corner of the lower left horizontal board as others have described. Almost did not happen as the little pig with no helmet survived and then a board shifted and squashed him. Hope I got the screenshot correct.

I decided to fling for a while before calling it a day. After a few minutes of playing, shooting just like @wicket182 wrote, I witnessed some amazing destruction. Little red hit the upper left corner of the lowest horizontal wood piece on the left side. The whole structure moved slightly to the right before falling to the left. After the first couple of pigs popped, the rest of the structure kept falling and destroying itself. When the counter finally stopped, I had 102,240 points. I tried to get a screenshot of the destruction, but it went to the Tally screen before I could get one.

Because this score seems like it might be more than a combo of skill & luck,I will leave it up to the Admins to decide if I get another puppy.
Either way, good luck & happy flinging to all !!

Thanks @meanguy . I can’t say I’m really surprised with your score. There was a fair amount of debris remaining with my 97k. I did not notice anything unusual about the scoring, stuff broke and the score increased as it should. Your score seems legitimate to me. But who am I?

Admin asked me to post my screenshot for 17-8 score of 104, 600. I am not sure how to do that since the screenshot was captured on an android device (Galaxy 10-1) with no ability to download to a PC or laptop. I copied the link but not sure how to paste it here. I should also say that after many years of playing AB and all its games I am finally posting my scores online using my laptop. Flingers will be happy for the most part since the majority of my scores are below average!

I also used the walkthroughs for ABO to get three stars where I did not initially achieve them. No 3 star score in ABO was achieved by an alternate strategy. I assure you it was just dumb luck.
