you're looking for a great board game packed
with suspense, adventure and thrills for all the
family, then check out Survive Escape From
Atlantis from Stronghold Games.
It’s early in the 20th century - a time of
exploration and adventure. The mysterious island
of Atlantis has been discovered in the middle of
the ocean, and there are rumours of great riches
to be found there!
After reaching Atlantis, the explorers are ready
to return home with treasure and artefacts. But
Atlantis begins to sink! In a panic, the
adventurers try to avoid a terrible fate.
luckiest will find a boat to return home while
the less fortunate will have to try to swim for
But nobody will be safe from the Sea Monsters,
Whales, and Sharks that live in the ocean around
Who will reach dry land with their riches? Who
Tried and Tested by Jenny Itzcovitz
was a quiet Sunday, so I rounded up my intrepid
game testers, Daniel and Paul to put Survive
Escape From Atlantis through its paces.
We were very impressed with the high quality and
colourful game board and attractive playing
pieces which had eyecatching blue Whales, black
Sharks, purple Sea Monsters, brown Boats and
cute brightly coloured playing Explorers.
The rules were easy to follow, essentially the
idea of the game is to rescue your explorers
from Atlantis which is rapidly sinking before it
is consumed by a whirlpool.
As play progresses, you load up your boats with
explorers and attempt to bring them safely to
land. But it's not as easy as it seems as you
have to protect them from the sharks, whales and sea
monsters, as well as the other players who might
have a few 'fishy' moves up their sleeves.
Faced paced, challenging and lots of fun, there
is plenty of scope for skill and tactics. If you
want to be particularly nasty to your opponent
you can attempt a 'suicide' attempt on one of
their boats, with a mutineer passenger
to throw the other explorers to the sharks!
But beware - they may be holding a safety card
that protects them from shark attacks or other
sea creatures. Things
are not always as they seem.
In addition to this, the explorers are all
numbered, so you might be attempting to save
some which are not as valuable as you think! The
skill is to remember the values of your players
at the start of the game and where you have
Suffice to say, my young opponents were much better
sailors than me. In fact, Daniel trounced us
twice, most notably in our second game when we discovered he was holding a
to protect him from shark attacks!
Fun, furious, skilful, and challenging, we had a
lot of laughs and a great afternoon playing it.
Twice! I would highly recommend it if you enjoy
playing intelligent board games.

for ages 8 and over, for 2-4 Players. RRP

you enjoy hot drinks but don't always want them
piping hot, then the iKettle is the perfect
gadget for you. Using the iKettle's built in
wi-fi, you can start boiling your kettle from
anywhere in the house. With the iKettle app, you
will save up to two days a year pre-boiling your
kettle! Not only can it boil the water for you,
but it will also notify you when it’s ready to
pour, needs refilling and when it’s empty.
A selection of different temperatures allows you
to make your hot drink the way it should be as
not all beverages need piping hot water. There's
a Wake Up mode to make sure the water is ready
for you every day. The app allows you to set a
wake up alarm for your iKettle which will
trigger the kettle to start boiling on request.
“Good morning! Would you like me to pop the
kettle on? Yes or no”. Once the water is boiled,
the clever kettle will ask if you are ready or
if it should keep the water warm. The warm
feature will keep the water heated for up to
half an hour, making sure that your morning
coffee is ready whenever you are.
Other features include the Welcome Home mode so
your hot water is ready when you return home
from work. The iKettle application will know
when you arrive home and will have pre-boiled
water ready and waiting. If you know that you
like a brew after the soaps have finished, you
can set a trigger to remind the kettle to boil
before the ad breaks so you don’t miss a second
of telly. And Game Mode will end the tiresome
arguments of who is the best tea maker in the
house with the iKettle leader board.
Multiple devices can be connected to the iKettle
so you can set up your own tea rota. With every
coffee or tea that is brought to you, you can
rate it to see who is the best and worst and
share the data on social networking sites. All
this clever technology comes in a stylish
element-less design – made from pure grade
stainless steel with a soft touch handle and
built in lime scale filter. Price is £99.95

hands so you can set them up however you like.

bodies as well as an antenna. The Robot Clock
has an alarm too, so you can be woken up every
day by your new found robot pal. Price is
