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

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

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

The first sign of identity fraud is often when a hard credit search

done with your consent, it could mean someone is trying to take out
credit (i.e. a credit card or loan) in your name.

win two great new Summer Puzzles including the
brand new Volkswagen Camper Van 3D Puzzle®
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

together to build a sturdy and strong model. No

Crazy Cats Vintage Bus
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 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!"
