Basic Fun Board Game Checklist

Basic Fun hit the scene in 1991 with a miniature working keyring version of the Super Soaker. The combination of miniature + working + keyring proved to be highly popular, and over the next 25 years or so they made over 1,000 different keychains. In later years they branched out into other novelty items but, for the purposes of this post, I'm just going to concentrate on their miniature board games (plus a few other minis I need to own). These are highly detailed replicas of their full size counterparts and are perfect for 1/6 scale scenes. One day I will catch them all!

Green - I own it.
Red - Not yet...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
