Dungeon Master For Dummies
Dungeon Master For Dummies
by James Wyatt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars For D&D players who want to switch to DM, 9 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is not bad at all but is nonetheless targeting players who are familiar with playing D&D 4th Edtn. Ideal if you happen to be a player transitioning to the role of DM.


Hero Realms Deckbuilding Game

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy Themed Deck Building Game, 9 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This one's from the same guys who designed and published the ultra popular deck building game "Star Realms". It shares a common game mechanic but with subtle twists in order to accommodate a fantasy setting. The card art is impeccable and the quality very decent linen finish. If you intend to really give this game a tough workout you may want to consider buying good quality transparent sleeves, something like Dragon Shields. Also particularly liked the scoring cards that came with this game as I find them by far more practical to use than those which come with Star Realms.


Fuli Medium Soft Toy, The Lion Guard
Fuli Medium Soft Toy, The Lion Guard
Offered by Lackenstrand Toys
Price: £22.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Soft Toy - Disney branded toy, 9 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my eldest son who had just turned 6 and is a great fan of The Lion Guard and in particular of "Fuli" the female cheetah and one of the main protagonists in the Disney animated series. What I can say is that he was really happy to receive this toy and from my end I at least could appreciate that in this instance an effort was made to retain a decent resemblance to the character in the animation.

4.0 out of 5 stars One for the Fans, 9 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What you see is what you get in this instance. It's a lovely stylised rendition of the Dr Strange logo/sigil that features throughout the movie (also in the comic book narrative) release in late 2016. This is something a fan will love and appreciate. Associated service including delivery was what you would expect, timely and hassle free. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well finished product, well fit for purpose., 4 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My first impression when I opened the packaging is that it's a well made and well finished Wheelchair Poncho. Futhermore I was pleased to notice that seams come with double protection in the form of sealing tape from the underside to ensure that no moisture gets through. It's also big enough to ensure adequate cover while still being relatively easy to deploy and use. It has solved an issue we have had to face when we bought our son's new wheelchair, allowing us to transport him from our vehicle to the intended destination in rainy weather.

Adc Blackfire Entertainment 12140 - Card Games Cthulhu Realms
Price: £15.94

3.0 out of 5 stars German Edition of Chtulhu Realms, 7 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this by mistake as I really wanted the English edition. However I must stress that the game relies heavily on icons to describe actions so even though you get cards written in German such as for example "Der König in Gelb", you can still figure out what the card does by observing the icons features on the card itself. Basically you don't really need to bother with what language the card is written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Deck Building Game, 7 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In recent times I have been actively looking around for card games that use a deck-building game mechanic. My first purchase was Ascension followed by Star Realms. Cthulhu Realms is very similar to Star Realms in that it uses much the same game setup, it varies only in the way cards can be removed from play or sometimes reintroduced using special cards. Obviously the game also introduces the Chtulhu myths put together by H. P. Lovecraft into all actions available to a player. Your aim is in fact to rob your opponents of their "Sanity", just to make my point. However while Lovecraft's work is at the heart of this game, the card themselves are drawn in a very pronounced cartoon-like rendition. This makes Cthulhu Realms at one time light-hearted without however detracting from the strategy elements that make it a challenging as well as rewarding game to play.


Magic Aether Revolt Planeswalker Deck English - 1 Deck - randomly selected
Magic Aether Revolt Planeswalker Deck English - 1 Deck - randomly selected
Offered by docsmagic
Price: £14.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Great intro to MTG - Aether Revolt, 7 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought a number of pre-constructed MTG decks over the years as I find that they offer a good taster of what a particular series can offer. The "Tezzeret" deck I obtained focuses squarely on artefact creatures with the deck geared towards boosting their effects. You also get a "Tezzeret - Master of Metal" planes-walker card which I think makes this deck that much more interesting. Great if you want an "Aether Revolt" deck to try out without investing too much in building your own from a tonne of booster packs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairly priced Vertical mouse, comfortable right-handed grip, glide strips at the bottom could be of better quality., 7 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fairly priced vertical mouse which does what it says on the box. On the plus side it has a valid ergonomic design catering for a comfortable right-handed mouse grip. I also like the fact that it does not necessitate battery replacements since it has an internal Lithium Ion battery which can be charged through a USB cable. Setup is also simple, just plug in the included WiFi antenna into an available USB port on your laptop or desktop computer and turn the mouse on by flipping the switch at the bottom. However I have one reserve with regards to this device, the glide strips at the bottom which should facilitate movement over the work surface/mouse-mat feel cheap and do not live up to expectations. One could compensate by using a light-coloured vinyl mouse mat (as opposed to neoprene) to help the mouse along but such mats are not something you would have normally laying around. Still at this price point, you could do worse than buy this vertical mouse.


Star Realms Crisis Events Board Game

4.0 out of 5 stars "Events" adds wild-card type events to standardd Star Realms, 23 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The "Events" expansion deck brings in the idea of Wild Cards into the Star Realms game play. When they are drawn into play, their effect is immediately resolved and they are discarded thereafter. An interesting addition to Star Realms.
