A fabulous strategy game for Christmas
Sixtyplusurfers has teamed with Esdevium Games to offer
three lucky readers the chance to win
Carcassonne, a fabulous strategy game for all the family
The game is centred around the southern French city of
Carcassonne which was founded on an important trade
route between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
Because of its strategic location, the city was often
conquered and has known many rulers. As a result of this
varied history, the city is famous for its unique
mixture of Roman and Medieval fortifications.
The game begins as players develop the area around
Carcassonne by skilfully placing their land tiles. As
the game progresses, the area becomes larger as the
players expand and add roads, fields, cities and
The players may also deploy their followers as thieves,
farmers, knights and monks to control and score points
for the roads, farms, cities and cloisters. As the
players have only a few followers, the wise player will
plan his moves carefully and deploy followers when and
where he can earn the most points.
Carcassonne is a simple, clever tile laying game, that
brings new challenges with every turn. Expansions and
themed sets are also available once you have mastered
the basic game.
The game includes 72 land tiles, 40 wooden followers in
five colours, a scoring track and a comprehensive rule
Tried and Tested by
Carcassonne is a very much loved and well played game in
our games cupboard. It takes a little time to get the
hang of the game and learn the rules, but once you have
mastered it, you will thoroughly enjoy it.
The idea is to develop and build up your land with
roads, cities, fields and cloisters. But you will also
need to use your skill with your thieves, knights,
farmers and monks to take control of the game.
The game ends when all of the tiles have been placed,
and then the cities are each scored one by one. The
player with the most points is the winner.
Carcassonne can be played by two people or all the
family and takes a combination of strategy, forward
thinking and planning to win. It's a great game for all
generations as everyone can join in and no player is
eliminated along the way. Every time you play the game,
the strategy and cities built are different. It tends to
last about 60 minutes and is the perfect game for all
Christmas and all the family to enjoy.
Carcassonne is suitable for 2 - 5 players and is
recommended for ages 10 and over. RRP is £24.95.

Fungal Nail Infections with Abicin Resin
Have you had a good look at your toenails
recently? It’s not a very glamorous subject, but you may have
noticed a bit of discolouring of the nails or that they have
become cloudy. As we get older, we also become more susceptible
to nail problems. Other health conditions can also give rise to
changes in the nail appearance.
New Abicin lacquer is a natural based product
which utilises the antifungal properties of Norwegian Spruce
Resin. It has been developed by Finnish Scientists who
recognised the traditional use of Spruce Resin in Finnish folk
remedies. Having analysed the composition of the resin, they
identified the reasons why it acts on both bacteria and fungi –
including the ones responsible for nail infections.
These occur as a result of infection of the keratin layer under
the nail by a fungus called a dermatophyte. These infections can
be difficult to treat and may affect up to 10% of the population
in the UK at any one time. Their incidence increases with age.
If you are aged over 60, there is a one in five chance you will
have a nail infection and if you have diabetes, this increases
to a one in three chance. Half of those aged over 70 will have a
For the first time, a naturally sourced antifungal lacquer has
been shown to be effective in clearing fungal nail infections,
cleanly and simply with a twice a week usage. Treat your toes to
a naturally based remedy. Time to give Abicin a try before it
