Mattel to release Angry Birds board game this May

When developer Rovio decided to expand the platforms its ultra-popular Angry Birds game was available for, we expected all the usual suspects such as PC, consoles and Facebook. What we didnít expect was a physical board game being created. Thatís exactly whatís happening, with board game pros Mattel handling creation and release.
The board game will be called Angry Birds Knock on Wood and will have support for between two and four players. As youíd expect, the pieces included in the set comprise of birds, pigs, a slingshot, and lots of structural pieces to make obstacles.

Gameplay consists of a strategy card game coupled with actually using the slingshot to fire your angry birds. As Electricpig describes:
Player One pulls a mission card. Player Two then builds the structure shown on the card for Player One to attempt to knock down to score as many points as possible. The first to 1,000 points wins.
If youíre eager to play Knock on Wood youíve got a few months to wait yet as itís not out until May (worldwide). It also costs a bit more than the iPhone app does at $14.99. Unfortunately, thereís no online access for multiplayer, youíre going to actually have to interact with people in the real-world for this game.
