5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, 26 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ticket to Ride (App)
Absolutely brilliant game and well adapted for the Kindle Fire HD. Great to play against AIs, pass+play among friends or play online. Pass + play is the slowest as each player sees a quick summary of what the previous players have done so I would advice playing online on different devices if possible. Note: friend with iPad had issues when attempting to place routes so we resorted to pass+play instead.
I have invested in a couple of the expansions (Europe and Asia) and have been playing for 6 months so far and still trying to out-do my high scores (note: 1 solo high score board for all maps purchased so it's trickier to reach with the Asia map).
Also the rulebook is well written (I hadn't played with the Asia board before and was rusty regarding the Tunnels in Europe).

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheeples!, 26 Oct 2014
This review is from: Ivor The Engine Board Game (Toy)
Absolutely brilliant game which is really easy to learn the rules and with enough variety for a different game every time. It works really well with 4-5 players (haven't tried 3 yet).
The sheeple wooden tokens (also victory points) are adorable and a game in themselves stacking them into towers whilst waiting your turn!
With the mixture of event cards (not all in play) and random quests as well as random number of sheeples initially per area this game is very replayable. Although events which move you to a particular location if you don't pay a sheeple can be quite frustrating!
It's also made me find episodes to watch to find out more about the characters (and make the authentic push-te-kuff noises when moving my train along the tracks...)

Really stylish (and well fitting) with the black lace upper portion superbly complementing the steampunk dragon design. Perfect with jeans or a dark skirt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cuteness overload, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely brilliant game (and currently free for Kindle!) Cute graphics and music, no in-app purchasing and increasingly tricky puzzles. The main aim of each puzzle is to recover pieces of your birthday cake by using special powers per character to overcome obstacles / trigger switches / defeat evil monsters. Warning: this is best suited to a tablet screen.
Each puzzle can be repeated to reach perfection (3 goals including all cake pieces obtained) which so far for me have involved completing within a particular time, getting all of the treasure, rescuing people and avoiding use of particular powers. You can instead progress to the next puzzle just by reaching all the pieces of cake. Some other characters request particular items found during your journey that may be tricky to find - and also tricky to remember who to talk to after having found the item!
After the intro part it's always possible to return to the map screen and head to previous areas or unlocked places.

Beatles Rockband is much more forgiving and fun than SingStar; brilliant well-rounded songs - often with harmonies. Multiple instruments can be played online with friends or in the same room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable & Comfortable, 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace a flip-cover which was unsuitable when taking photographs (and was cracked); this has been durable for months and a comfort to hold. Very easy to put into place and the side-keys remain responsive (just need slightly more force when taking photographs.) The pattern is easy on the eye. It does shield some of the light from the base of the phone at the back but that section remains visible on the front. Overall a great purchase; I would recommend this cover.

Arrived speedily; unfortunately my Seagate external hard drive issue wasn't due to the old power cable so I was unable to use it!

SONY XPERIA SP ULTRA THIN PU LEATHER FLIP CASE WITH 2 SCREEN PROTECTORS BY CELLAPOD CASES PURPLE

2.0 out of 5 stars Corner issues, 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived very speedily and the clear screen protectors were easy to apply. The purple case looked great but the lower corners managed to get worn and chipped from just a fortnight of mostly being in my handbag. Also the vertical flip as a whole whilst looking good isn't actually that convenient if you intend to use the camera function - you then have to hold the flap part of it so that it doesn't flop over the camera lens! I ended up buying a rubber case (no flap) instead which has been durable if not as pretty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caution: highly addictive :), 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Temple Run 2 (App)
This game combines brilliant graphics with simple mechanics, easily the best free kindle hd fire app around. It involves swiping (4 directions) and tilting whilst running away from the temple and the beast chasing you; collecting coins, gems and power-ups until you are unfortunate.
There are various abilities to improve (using the coins) and increasingly difficult objectives to attain (3 active at any time.) A really nice feature is that any unlocked abilities apply to all unlocked characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong size, 1 Aug 2011
The wrong size (Xperia X10, not Xperia X10 Mini) was sent; I was not allowed to exchange for the correct product, only a refund (which was given promptly.)
