The Wine Diet
The Wine Diet
by Professor Roger Corder PhD MRPharmS
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Like I needed another excuse to drink red wine, 18 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wine Diet (Paperback)
So I like tannic wines and it turns out they're likely to be good for me!

Lots of good info in this book, although I imagine the kind of person who buys this is probably eating properly anyway.

One slight dissonance though - the wines reviewed are certainly not those drunk by the long-lived folk of Crete, Sardinia and Southwest France. They're getting the benefit from their local vintage rather than from fairly expensive bottled estate wines.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok seat - you get what you pay for, 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a seat for a short visit to the UK so I bought this. It's an ok seat, easy to set up and so on, but the infant's seating position is very upright so when they go to sleep their head is slumped forward which looks uncomfortable and leads to major snoring.

Also, the belt fastener is readily accessible to little fingers and easy for a child to open - we had to make several stops to reattach a recalcitrant infant who wanted out of the seat.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great new gateway game, and very replayable, 8 Dec 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
A great new family game from the designer of Dominion, a massively popular deckbuilding card game with numerous expansions.
Kingdom Builder is very simple to understand, plays fast, and has numerous different game boards so the setup changes each time. The winning conditions are in part selected from cards drawn randomly, so again replayability is extremely high.

Worth having.

4.0 out of 5 stars An essential expansion..?, 8 Dec 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This expansion is thought to add a lot to the base game of Carcassonne without changing the play.

Worth having.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, quick, easy to learn, 8 Dec 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Carcassonne (Kitchen & Home)
Carcassonne is known as a gateway game, i.e. it's quick, easy to learn, but also has some depth to it requiring skill and practice to master.
It works well as a family game from 2 to 5 players, ages 8 and up, although between adults the play will be more sneaky and strategic.

Worth having.
