4.0 out of 5 stars for big kids too..., 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coppit (Toy)
This game has been a hit with everyone I've introduced it to. It's simple yet great fun, very lighthearted and revenge copping is extremely satisfying! It's also relatively quick, with the average game lasting about 30-40 mins with 6 players.

There are a couple of minor issues with the gameplay, one being that the last-man-standing approach to winning encourages boring, safe play. To make it interesting you generally need at least one or two players who love taking risks and throwing everything they've got around the board (they normally lose!!). Maybe you could try introducing a rule that everyone must have at least 2 pieces in play at any one time.

Despite this drawback, don't let it put you off getting it, it's great fun and doesn't require any thinking power!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent addition to any kitchen, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is well made, easy to use and holds enough for 4 medium portions or 3 big ones. I've been very pleased with my purchase.

Slow cooking is such a simple way to produce lots of really great tasting dishes, I don't understand why more people don't use them! Preparation time is low (there's often pre-frying of stuff to go in, this doesn't take long and always improves the flavour a lot), there's hardly anything to wash up, you can cook a lot at once (very useful for a single person), and it's cheap and safe to leave running.

Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars all Christians should read this book, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a great introduction to how to read the Bible correctly. It explains the basic principles of exegesis and hermeneutics and illustrates their use very effectively.

All Christians should read this book as a minimum before voicing their interpretations of any Bible passage. The book basically conveys the very important message that whilst the Bible is the word of God, you can't just pick it up and read its contents at face value, even in places where the language seems to make perfect sense. You need to understand the context in which it was written (i.e. the author, the intended audience, the geopolitical setting, the surrounding cultural influences), and the highly challenging and often subjective task of translating it into modern English. Only then are you remotely "qualified" to discuss the meaning and application of the passage.

There is no getting around the fact that it takes time to master reading and interpreting the Bible, but whilst this is clearly a big challenge to all Christians, we should be grateful for all the hard work by scholars that have produced tools like this book, which enable the layman to genuinely stand a chance at grasping and hence being enlightened by God's word.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product looks nice and gives good magnification on one side. Very good value for money. Only slight complaint is that the legs don't quite sit flat on the table, so it'll rock if you push it. Still, for £5 that's totally forgivable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but worth it, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nicely made, although very expensive for what is basically 6 pieces of bent stainless steel pipe. However, since my fiancee drinks everything through straws to prevent her teeth being eroded by acid from fruit juice etc. (she's strange) they work well at saving boxes of disposable ones, and they look cool too!

Sound quality is excellent considering their size. The 3.5 mm jack fits virtually any audio device. USB powered makes them very portable - I keep mine in their box and take them with my laptop to use wherever I like, it works a treat and thrashes the sound you'll get out of any laptop. Very pleased with the purchase, would definitely recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars very simple yet great fun, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of those games that's dead simple but really enjoyable for anywhere from 2 to 4 players (having 2 people play as one person also works well), making it a genuinely great game. It will appeal to all age ranges. Being simple it's quick to get going even if it's new to some/all players, which is a nice change to some games that take 20 minutes just to explain the rules (by which time nobody cares any more)! The presentation is very nice too.
