Othello

 

We love playing games as a family so we were really excited to play Othello, Othello is a well know classic strategy game where you need to be one step ahead of your opponent. Each player is allocated a colour; white or black, the player who has the majority of their own coloured disks showing on the board at the end of the game.


Othello is a fun game, all you need to do is to capture your opponent by placing your disks on the board,  You must then try to trap your opponents disks by ‘sandwiching’ them with your own coloured disks. Once you have trapped them, you can turn their disks over to your colour. Myself and my son and couldn't wait to battle it out and test our skills, but despite my strategic moves, my son managed to outwit me and win!


Othello is suitable for two players aged 7 and up and comes complete with 64 reversible disks, one playing board and four playing board, (RRP £22.99) from www.johnadams.co.uk

I Do 3D Design Studio


We love getting creative, so we were really excited to try I Do 3D Design Studio, a multicolour 3D design kit. Inside the kit you will get!
4 coloured 3D pens,
1 UV light,
2D & 3D templates.

 

My son was excited to get started and began tracing the 3D pen over his chosen design, half way through he decided to remove the UV light so the pen was easier to manipulate,

  

We had lots of fun tracing over the various designs, we did find that we needed to cure some of the 3D art slightly longer than others, but it was still great fun, although you need steady hands to get a really good result.


My son did manage to make this cool looking bird, unfortunately, our cage collapsed, so we will be attempting to make another one very soon. But for more hints and tips I recommend watching IDO3D on You Tube.


We loved that we could get the 3D pens to draw vertically which was really cool. I Do 3D Design Studio is Suitable for ages 8+ years and above, with a RRP £24.99.

Firezza Pizza


We love pizza, but up until last weekend we had never had a Firezza Pizza, so we were really excited to learn more about the Firezza revolution and get the chance to try the Firezza freshly baked pizza.


We generally order what I would say is a general run of the mill style of pizza, so it was delightful to look at the Firezza menu and select from the varied range of pizza's and sides, the website was easy to use and we loved that we could also customise our pizza by adding and removing toppings online,


We opted for 1/4 Margaretta and decided to request removal of the basil, we also opted for 1/4 Verde Ortalana which consists of Artichoke hearts, fresh field mushroom, roasted mixed vegetables aubergines, courgettes, sweet peppers, fresh basil, tomato and mozzarella, for our side dishes we opted for some Potato Wedges and Lentil Salad, and of course some delicious puddings and Ice cream to finish off our meal,


Our pizza arrived in a cool rectangle decorative box, inside was a rectangle shaped pizza, which consisted of half of each of our pizza choices, our pizza was equivalent to an 18in pizza which was a perfect portion for all four of us. The Firezza pizza had a very rustic fresh taste and each bite was delicious, I was really surprised how much I loved the Verde Ortalana pizza its defiantly a pizza that I will order again, both of our pizza were very morish and had a just-baked taste. Firezza offers a delicious range of pizza and cater for a range of dietary requirements from vegan and vegetarians, it also has a varied menu to suit every taste bud, as it offers a range pizza toppings, sides and salads to accompany its pizza's, Check out Firezza for more information and to find your nearest Firezza.
