Yes you read that right: Mattel has given a sneak peek at a boardgame version of the popular mobile device download, Angry Birds.

In case you’ve been living under a rock the past year, Angry Birds has become one of the most iconic puzzle video arcade-type games, and is pretty much a staple for owners and users of Apple iPhones and other mobile devices.

Tell us what you think!
