Win Ticket to Ride Germany

Win Ticket to Ride Germany from Esdevium Games

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed with Esdevium Games to offer two lucky readers the chance to win Ticket to Ride Germany, a fabulous new strategic family game, which takes you on a magical train ride around Germany and all its neighbouring borders.

Ticket to Ride Germany is a stand-alone game in the Ticket to Ride series. Set on a nostalgic Steam Train in the 1900s, players travel around Germany, completing their travels to the borders of Paris, Denmark, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria.

Ticket to Red Germany is set on a nostalgic Steam Train in the 1900s

Over the course of the game, players collect cards in order to then claim routes on the game board between two cities. There are also passengers, positioned in cities before the start of the game.

Ideally the players create a network of routes that connect the cities showing on their secret ticket cards, trying to also collect as many passengers as possible.

Ticket to Ride Germany game board

Players score points, for claiming routes and for completing tickets, with incomplete tickets counting against a player's score and for having most passengers in a given colour. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.

The game includes a high quality game board, attractive coloured plastic trains, train cards, destination cards, scoring markers, wooden passengers in six colours (Meeples), a cloth bag and a comprehensive rule book.

Ticket to Ride playing cards

Ticket to Ride Germany is suitable for 2-5 players, for ages 8 and over. Playing Time is approximately 45 minutes. Price is £38.99.

Treat Fungal Nail Infections with Abicin Resin

Abicin Resin Lacquer

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 Chatbot

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.

'Best Poem' Competition


Win Two New Puzzles from Ravensburger

Win a Volkswagen Camper Van 3D Puzzle® from Ravensburger

Send in the 'Best Poem' of the Month to the Sixtyplusurfers Chat and Socialise page and win Two Fabulous Ravensburger Puzzles including the new Volkswagen Camper Van 3D Puzzle and Crazy Cats Vintage Bus.

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with Ravensburger to offer one lucky reader the chance to win two great new Summer Puzzles including the brand new Volkswagen Camper Van 3D Puzzle® and Crazy Cats Vintage Bus.

Volkswagen Camper Van 3D Puzzle®

The Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (Surfer Edition) now comes as a 3D puzzle! With 162 plastic pieces and accessories, you can piece together your very own VW Camper and display it in any room or inside your camper van!

As an official Volkswagen licensed product, this highly-detailed model is perfect for collectors and puzzle enthusiasts. Including 162 high quality plastic pieces, the puzzle measures 30cm x 14cm x 15cm high when complete.

Suitable for ages 10 years and up, this 3D puzzle uses unique plastic pieces, which slot together to build a sturdy and strong model. No glue is needed. Each puzzle piece is printed with a number on the reverse side, so you can either assemble the puzzle by eye, or just by following the numbers.

Crazy Cats Vintage Bus

Win a Crazy Cats Vintage Bus puzzle from Ravenburger

The crazy cats crowd aboard this vintage Coach, ready to set off on an exciting adventure in this delightful 500 piece puzzle. However, any trip will have to be in their imagination as the Coach isn’t roadworthy and we don't think the driver is suitably qualified or insured!

Never fear, plenty of fun and interesting challenges await you, thanks to over 30 sets of eager eyes with pointed ears, plenty of fur and whiskers. There are also lots of cute little mice and other delicious vintage details that Linda Jane Smith has created to make the puzzle really special.

Linda Jane Smith comments on this new puzzle. "This old Coach has seen better days, but it has charm and character. Day trips out on a Coach were part of my childhood, and as my dad was an engineer for 'the Midland red bus Co.' it was part of family life. I love to paint aged, weathered materials such as wood and metal, so an old bus in a reclamation yard is perfect for me. The cats are pushing to get on and I particularly like the ginger at the back, looking slightly worried!"

All the puzzles are available to buy from Amazon.
