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

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
