Victorian Parlour Games
Victorian Parlour Games

Edition: Hardcover

1.0 out of 5 stars Palour Games - Not what was expected, 21 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When this book was purchased I had assumed it be a wealth of games that the family could sit down and play rather than getting out monopoly or the play station. Unfortunately I was wrong. It may well be a historical document of how the Victorians spent leisure time, but I do not think we will actually play any of the games. My advice if you are games player, and looking for something other than charades, is not to waste your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Palour Games - save your money, 17 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure what I was expecting. I think I it was a book of parlour games that could be played with the family. Unfortunately not so. Yes, the may have fashionable in Victorian times, but I do not think I found anything worth playing.
My advice would be to save your money.
The book is laid out in a Victorian fashion and hard to read

3.0 out of 5 stars Diet and Diabetes, 3 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More of a booklet than a book.
For the newbie who wants some ideas about what you can do yourself it is a good buy,
but if you are aware of the diet and diabetes, it is not worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars Plastic Playing Cards, 26 Oct 2009
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cards are high quality and almost indestructible.
They come as two packs in one plastic case.
I liked them so much I ordered a second set (of two packs)
Unfortunately on the second order the plastic case was cracked on arrival due to poor wrapping.
For me this was not a problem but could be for others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hadrians Wall, 4 Sep 2009

Of the 5 guides books that were taken on the walk this was by far the best.
It has good information on everything and maps that really do give directions.
An Excellent Book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Count, Carcassonne - Expansion, 29 May 2009
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an expansion for the game of Carcassonne. It adds to the game with a Castle and the Count thus allowing more strategy into the game.
Once you have played the basic game invest in the expansions such as River 2, Inns and Cathedrals, traders and Builders and the King and Scout. All add to game, personally The Count is my least favorite expansion but it is a must for games players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I have found, 26 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wishing to study probability I searched around for a book. This was in fact the third I tried. What I required was a book that covers the mathematics for a range of applications, this fits the bill nicely.
My only critism is the size of the print, the information is packed onto the pages.
In my opinion the best book and good value for for money
