Sixtyplusurfers Competition

Win Colt Express

Win Colt Express from Esdevium Games

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed with Esdevium Games to offer two lucky readers the chance to win Colt Express, an action packed board game set on a steam train in the Old West.

On the 11th of July, 1899 at 10am, the Union Pacific Express has left Folsom, New Mexico, with 47 passengers on board. After a few minutes, gunfire and hurrying footsteps on the roof can be heard. Heavily armed bandits have come to rob honest citizens of their wallets and jewels.

Will they succeed in stealing the suitcase holding the Nice Valley Coal Company's weekly pay, despite it having been placed under the supervision of Marshal Samuel Ford? Will these bandits hinder one another more than the Marshal since only the richest one of them can come out on top?

In Colt Express, you play a bandit robbing a train at the same time as other bandits, and your goal is to become the richest outlaw of the Old West. The game takes place in a 3D train in which the bandits can move from one car to another, run on the roof, punch the other bandits, shoot them, rob the passengers, or draw the Marshal out of position. The train has as many cars as the number of players, and each car is seeded with gems, bags of loot or suitcases at the start of play.

In Colt Express, you play a bandit robbing a train at the same time as other bandits

Each player starts a round with six cards in hand, with each card showing one of these actions. At the start of a round, a round card is revealed, showing how many cards will be played; whether they'll be played face up or face down, or individually or in pairs; and what action will occur at the end of the round (for example all bandits on top of the train move to the engine).

You can pick up loot, gems or suitcases only by playing a "steal" card when you're in a train car that holds one of these items - but since everyone is planning to get these goods, you'll need to move, punch and shoot to get others out of your way. You can punch someone only in the same car as you, and when you do, the other bandit drops one of the goods he's collected and is knocked into an adjacent car.

In Colt Express every player's character has a special power

Each player's character has a special power, such as starting the round with an extra card, playing your first card face down, or pocketing a bag of loot when you punch someone instead of letting it hit the ground. You can shoot someone in an adjacent car or (if you're running on top of the train) anyone in sight, and when you do, you give that player one of your six bullet cards; that card gets shuffled in the opponent's deck, possibly giving her a dead card in hand on a future turn and forcing her to draw instead of playing something.

If the Marshal ends up in the same car as you, likely due to other bandits luring him through the train, he'll be happy to give you a bullet, too. At the end of the game, whoever fired the most bullets receives a USD 1,000 braggart bonus, and whoever bagged the richest haul wins!

Colt Express is available to buy now from

Suitable for 2 - 6 players, aged 10 years and up. RRP is £27.99.

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


Check 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.
