Sixtyplusurfers Competition

Win Carcassonne

Carcassonne from Esdevium Games

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 to enjoy.

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.

Carcassonne from Esdevium Games

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 cloisters.

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 from Esdevium Games

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 booklet.

Tried and Tested by Jenny Itzcovitz

Carcassonne from Esdevium Games

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.

Treat Fungal Nail Infections with Abicin Resin

Treat 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 nail infection.

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 needs tablets.

Improve Your Credit Score with the ClearScore Chat Bot

ClearScore, the UK’s no. 1 credit checking service, is aiming to help millions of people improve their credit score with the launch of ‘Coaching’, an easy to use free of charge service.

Coaching is the first chatbot-based programme in the world to help you improve your credit worthiness and ability to get the best financial deals available.
Depending on whether you have a thin credit file, have faced financial challenges in the past or just want to fine tune your finances, ClearScore will automatically recommend the right Coaching programme for you – accessible through the free ClearScore account.

ClearScore  is a service which allows consumers to access their credit report and scores for free as often as they need or want.

Three reasons to check your Credit Score:

1. If you’ve ever been rejected for credit, checking your report can help you find out why.

2. Put yourself in the best position to get lower interest rates.

3. You can spot identity fraud quickly.

Checking your credit report will mean you’ll be able to see any new activity on your account – including any activity you may not recognise. So, in the unlikely event you’re a victim of identity fraud, you’ll be able to notice the signs quickly (and if you check your report regularly, you’ll be able to spot this even quicker).

The first sign of identity fraud is often when a hard credit search (aka credit check) is carried out on your account. If this isn’t done with your consent, it could mean someone is trying to take out credit (i.e. a credit card or loan) in your name.

Your credit report will list your history of hard and soft searches so you can easily keep an eye on the searches that might be fraudulent.

  Oeco Garden Offices

Oeco Garden Offices

Oeco have been supplying garden buildings for over a decade now, and one of their unique selling points is the price you see is the price you pay. This includes the cost of delivery & installation, which few other garden offices companies offer.

Oeco Garden Offices  are available in 10 styles: 5 classics & 5 contemporary. The contemporary styled garden offices have Anthracite trimmings along the rooflines and certain outer edges.

When Oeco first started installing and supplying in 2006, only a select range of structures was available including garden rooms, offices and lodges with an apex roof. Over the years they have expanded to Garden Pods, which start at a smaller size of 2.5m x 2.5m.

There is a large gap in the market for strong and heavy duty garden sheds. Recently Oeco have applied their expertise & knowledge to create a range of designed style garden sheds.

While these sheds aren’t in your typical price range for a garden shed, they most certainly aren’t going to blow over in a gust of wind or start to rot after a few years.

It might be a crafty idea and could show other readers how to make a warm blanket, gloves, scarf or hat to keep lovely and warm.

Or it could be an idea for your pets, keeping them warm and cosy in a pet bed, with a blanket, soft toys and bedding. Or perhaps you've made your dog, cat, or garden wildlife a cosy pet coat or throw when they have been cold or injured. We'd love to hear your knitting or creative ideas.

It could be a fashion idea such as layering, clothing tips, places where you can buy warm clothes, ideas about leg warmers, boots and trousers that are comfortable and stylish. Have you knitted or made anything for a friend or family member?

It might be ways of helping other people in need such as neighbours, the homeless, elderly people, soup kitchens, care homes. Have you volunteered to help other people? Or can you advise on how Sixtyplusurfers readers can help others in need?
