Queen Games 030022 "FR/DE/En Push-A-Monster" Game
Queen Games 030022 "FR/DE/En Push-A-Monster" Game
Price: £28.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality game for young'uns, 18 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to play with my 3 year old daughter. She loves it and often asks for it.
The idea of the game is simple, you roll a dice and then have to push the specified colour of monster onto a little table, without knocking any others off. If you knock any off, you get a token for that colour of monster all of which are slightly different sizes. at the end of the game compare how long your line of tokens is and the shortest line wins.
Good for teaching colours and developing dexterity, as well as just being fun. Nice bright colours. Good fun artwork and high quality card and wooden pieces. Setup can take a while with sorting out the cards and pieces, but my daughter really likes doing all this herself, so it actually adds to the game for her. But if not, you could always get some baggies to pack it away.
You can adapt the rules slightly to say that 3 year olds are allowed overhangs, whereas Daddies have to get all of the monster on the table with no overhang. However, be aware doing this will make Daddies lose often. I recently lost even when she had her dominant hand in a plaster cast!

Abacus Spiele 8133 "Hanabi Pocket" Cardgame

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality version of a fun quick game., 18 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice version of the game. Very portable and compact. Good quality metal container just a bit bigger than a normal pack of cards. Instructions are in German, but easy to find a translation for your desired language online (try boardgamegeek.com). Other versions have cardboard tokens with printing on, but the plastic tokens here are more robust, don't absorb split liquids and certainly serve the purpose.
The game is a simple cooperative card game where you try and lay your cards correctly. The snag being that you hold your hand of cards facing outwards and never look at them. You have to work from clues the other players give you and some logical thinking. Good for families, or as a filler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ocean's eleven with magic and dwarfs., 15 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hilarious. If you don't know who Acquisitions Incorporated are then they are basically a bunch of guys who play Dungeons & Dragons live at rpg conventions, but this series is set up like it's just their home game. As such it's much more relaxed and you get to see their thought processes as they play. Very entertaining with an interesting, problem solving adventure containing a dwarven bank heist. Even if you've never played an rpg before this is a great introduction to the game. More please.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the price I think this is a great value case, 29 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price I think this is a great value case. Looks smart and is robust enough to protect my phone. Catch is secure, but easy to open. Holds two cards and a few notes/receipts, so doubles up as a small wallet for when you want to travel light.
I think it will last me a while, certainly long enough to justify it's price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Niffy little scales at a good price., 6 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this for counting large quantities (few 100's, to several 1,000's) of LEGO pieces (weight range 0.2g to couple of grams). I've found it accurate enough for this job.
I've used two other scales similar to this in the past, but I prefer this one because it has a wider top and it remembers the last use of the piece counting function, i.e.you can set it up to count a certain part - switch it off and then use it later for the same part without having to reset. The auto off is adjustable. Both features are useful when getting a sample ready for the counting function and then churning through all the counts of that part type, because sometimes you just get distracted.
Comes with two plastic trays which can also be used to pack and protect the scales in (scales fit in the large one and then small one goes over the measuring top to stop it getting squished, that's a nice design feature. Display lights up and easy to read. All good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargin tight clamp., 24 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They have been holding a straight edge for me while I circular saw my way through 33 sheets of OSB. You can get a good tight grip and they haven't shifted a mm. For £5 well worth it. I'm going to buy a few more in different sizes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, I wanted something that would give me ..., 10 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book, I wanted something that would give me information for making a model of a Manchester cotton mill and this exactly what I was looking for. It details the layout and the machinery in the mills, lots of diagrams and photos and the text fills in the details so you get a good understanding of how it all comes together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality for the price., 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm quite impressed with this. I just needed a cheap UV torch to check something, but it's actually quite a nice one. Metal case, with wrist strap and a good rubber button. Plenty bright enough and shows stains, dust and other dirt up well. It even came with batteries loaded, just remove the insulating disc and you're away.
