In My Own Words:
I have very individualistic views - sometimes controversial - but never shy away from what I truly feel and/or believe in. I do not run with the crowd - but equally I do not believe in running against it for its sake only. If I happen to like a CD, book or film, and praise it as a result, and it happens to receive great national critical acclaim too - then it's genuine; I don't fake it to pl… Read more

I love reading, listening to music and watching DVDs and collecting too many things...

Shogun game by Ravensburger
Shogun game by Ravensburger
`Shogun' is an excellent strategic game for two players. Featuring the use of magnets and random numbers, each player has eight playing pieces which have small windows. The window has a number displayed, which is the number of movements you are allowed to move that turn. This changes as the pieces move because of the unique magnetic mechanism - both inside the each playing piece itself - and the inside playing arena!

Terribly skilful gameplay, as the game is changes all the time, and your job is to protect your `Shogun' (the single piece with the crown) or get your opponent into a situation whereby he has only his `Shogun' piece surviving - and just one other ordinary piece in… Read more

Couldn't wait for this game to arrive after ordering, as soon as I saw the FABULOUS advertisement for it from `PRIVATEER' on YouTube!! It's only my third co-op game - meant for me to play solo only, and so fairly new to this genre.

Well, I would be a liar if I didn't say that on first arrival I was just a little disappointed by the VERY complex rules... I was SO eager to play - but was frustrated that I couldn't due to poorly organised rules and constant games being spoiled half way through by my not being able to follow them correctly... I think there's a problem here with these types of games, in that they do not go stage by stage as they do with more traditional board games,… Read more
Anipalz Cat with touch sensor pad by Gamze
5.0 out of 5 stars THE CAT IS CUTE!, 31 July 2014
`Anipalz' in my opinion were probably the best virtual pets around at the time of release - perhaps if only because, not only the graphics were so good and real-looking, but these took what I call `ordinary' batteries, whereas any other VPs I've ever owned usually took button cells, which though widely available and cheap now, have not always been so... These are made very `chunky' without lots of fiddly buttons and are very easy to hold and operate. Okay, the touch sensors can be a bit temperamental - but this is hardly a serious problem.

I've always had a dog `Anipalz', and so now have a cat, (more recently a hamster!!) but was amused at the discovery and thought of a VP… Read more
