three lucky readers the chance to win
Dobble, the perfect travel game in a tin for all ages.
Dobble is a speedy observation game where players race
to match the identical symbol between cards. Reliant on
a sharp eye and quick reflexes, Dobble creates
excitement for children and adults alike while keeping
every player involved in the action.
ages 6+ for 2-8 players, Dobble is simple to learn,
quick to play but a challenge to master. Dobble's
exciting game play and pocket sized tin make it ideal
for parties, bringing to a friend's house and taking on
There are five fun different ways you can play Dobble.
Game 1: The Towering
Deal one card, face down to each player. Place the rest
of the deck in the centre of the table as a face-up draw
pile. Players simultaneously turn over their cards. The
first player to find and call out the item their card
has in common with the centre card claims that card.
This card is then placed on top of their face-up card
and play immediately continues as a new centre card is
revealed. When the draw pile has been exhausted, the
player who has claimed the most cards wins.
Game 2: The Well
Remove one card from the deck and set it aside face
down. Deal out the deck so that each player has an equal
number of cards in a face down draw pile. Now place the
original card set aside (or one of the extras) face up
in the centre of the table. Players turn over the first
card on their draw piles simultaneously. The first
player to find and name the item on the centre card that
matches their top card places their card on the centre
card and turns over the next card in their draw pile.
The player who exhausts their draw pile first wins.
Game 3: Hot Potato
Each player holds out their hand and is dealt one card
face down. Using the other hand players simultaneously
reveal the hidden card. The first player to find a match
between their card and any other player’s card, calls
out the match and places the card in the other player’s
hand. That player then searches for a match between the
new card in their hand and any card remaining in another
player's hand, while other players remaining in the game
are simultaneously searching for matches as well.
Whenever a player finds a match, they place all of the
cards in their hand on top of the cards in the hand of
the player with whom they have identified the match. The
round ends when all of the cards are in the last
player’s hand. They are then set in front of that player
and a new round is dealt out face down.
Players play a fixed number of rounds (minimum 5, agreed
upon in advance) and then the player with the most cards
Game 4: Catch Them All!
One card is placed face up in the centre of the table
and each player is dealt one card face down. Players
simultaneously reveal their cards and then search for
the match between the centre card and any other revealed
card. Whoever finds a match claims the revealed card,
placing it face down in front of themselves, but leaves
the centre card in place and, along with the other
players, continues searching for matches between it and
the remaining cards that were revealed.
When all those cards have been claimed, place the centre
card at the bottom of the draw pile and deal out another
hand. When the draw pile has been exhausted, count the
stack of claimed cards in front of each player. The
player with the most cards wins.
Game 5: The Poisoned
Deal each player one card, face down. Place the rest of
the deck in the centre of the table as a face-up draw
pile. Players simultaneously reveal their dealt cards
and then look for matches between the centre card and
the card in front of any other player. The first to find
and name a match places the centre card on top of the
other player’s matching card. Play continues with the
newly revealed centre card.
The game ends when the draw pile has been exhausted. The
player with the fewest cards wins.
Dobble retails at £7.99 and is available to buy from

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

improve their credit score with the launch of ‘Coaching’, an easy to

Checking your credit report will mean you’ll be able to see any new

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.
