Gardeners Guesses – interactive DVD Garden Quiz

Everyone gathers round the TV with a score sheet and pen at the ready. Start the DVD and the first thing you see is a blank screen. then Little by little a hidden image appears on the screen. As the round progresses more of the hidden image becomes visible and by the end of the round the picture is completely revealed.

Everyone plays at once. The aim of the game is to guess what the hidden image is as quickly as you can and ideally faster than the other players. The earlier you guess, the more points you score.

All kinds of trick photography, unusual camera angles, odd lighting and special effects spice things up a bit. So the simple task of identifying everyday objects is suddenly a whole lot trickier and more fun than you ever thought possible.

This game is amazingly simple to operate, no special equipment needed other than a normal DVD player. Each player needs a pen and paper. With eight rounds per game and twenty games on the disk Gardeners Guesses offers hours of quality fun.

This is instant and intriguing fun for gardeners and non gardeners alike . Challenging yet simple to play,full rules included on the disc, aimed at ages ages 9 and up.

Vintage set of HENSELITE Home Carpet Biased Bowls

William D. Hensell started the Henselite Company in 1918. In a time when all bowls were made of wood.However with forward thinking and an agreement with the Dunlop Rubber Company he developed and produced the world’s first rubber bowls.

Once the contract with Dunlop ended, William and his son Raymond turned their attention to developing bowls made from a new kind of material that would not expand and contract with temperature changes. After much experimentation they decided upon a plastic called Phenolformaldehyde and in 1931 the first solid plastic bowl was produced, changing the face of bowls forever.

These original bowls were called Henselites and were made with separate coloured discs inserted into the bowls to allow bowlers to differentiate their bowls from others and In 2008, Henselite became the first manufacturer to produce 7 million bowls.

This vintage boxed set of Henselite carpet biased bowls consists of eight fully 2.5″ carpet bowls, with identifying coloured discs, jack and rules of play. All you need extra is a smooth carpet on which to play and you will have hours of endless enjoyment at home.
