Krosmaster Arena: Dark Heroes Expansion Pack
Krosmaster Arena: Dark Heroes Expansion Pack
Offered by AMA INC
Price: $45.84
5 used & new from $34.99

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!, April 25, 2015
This is the six-pack with the most eye-candy!
These characters are bright, intricate and interesting making for a “Wow!” the first time people see it.
Djaul the demon, Dark Vald a lop, scarier Kriss Krass and Katar, Black Crow an Osamodas and the vampire Vampyro are the Dark Heroes.
In addition to the six characters, you will get tokens for Katar’s Offspring, Ghouls and Crobaks, three different MOBs that they can summon during a game.
Each character has their own set of strengths and quirks designed to present a challenge to both sides of the board.

The Dark Vald character, from this set, fits onto the Dark Vald – Karnated mount making a different character with new powers and spells.
The Dark Vald – Karnated character is not included in the set and available only as a promo or on the secondary market.

This set has the potential to be the “must have” set for both players and collectors.


Krosmaster Arena: Kerubim's Bazaar
Krosmaster Arena: Kerubim's Bazaar
Offered by AGY Trading
Price: $25.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best four-packs, April 25, 2015
Grampy and Kerub Crepin are strong characters.
Both are level four with high HP and solid AP.
Grampy’s spells are very useful and his Powers can upset an opponent’s plan.
Kerub Crepin has one good range spell. His “Second Chance” power can save almost every bad roll he makes.
Joris and Lou lack a range spell but their power somewhat compensates.
Lou’s “sit… stay” power is interesting and can be useful.
The characters are very well done, colorful with personality.
Overall, this set is a real addition to your collection both in battle and on display.


Wiss MPX5 MaxCut Multi-Purpose Cutters
Wiss MPX5 MaxCut Multi-Purpose Cutters

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent multi-purpose cutter, April 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Wiss is a respected name among sewers known for excellent sicessors.
The company has applied their expertise producing an outstanding multi-purpose cutter.
This is a solid cutter, sturdy; fitting comfortably in your hand giving you confidence that it will do the job.
The add-ons are well placed for easy access and use. Additionally, they are intelligent add-ons that add value not useless glitz.
The wire cutter and bending holes are a natural extension of many cutting jobs.
The twine cutter will keep me from taking my knife out of my pocket for that one quick cut.
The locking mechanism releases with a touch of your thumb and engages when the handle closes.
You need not worry about the blades springing open when you put the cutter down.
A 3” blade with a 1.5X assist in cutting action coupled with a comfortable handle makes quick work of smaller jobs, while speeding up larger ones.
Overall, this is the best cutter I have had and recommend it without reservation.


The Complete Gillian Flynn: Gone Girl, Dark Places, Sharp Objects
The Complete Gillian Flynn: Gone Girl, Dark Places, Sharp Objects
by Gillian Flynn
Edition: Paperback
Price: $30.44
84 used & new from $14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The best buy for all her books, April 19, 2015
Sharp Objects, Dark Places and Gone Girl should appeal to any mystery reader.
Each book is different each tightly crafted with an excellent story, realistic situations and well developed characters.

After seeing Gone Girl, I quickly settled on this set as the best buy since I expect to read all three books.
Buying the set makes the books from one to three dollars less than buying them individually.
The box keeps the books together and makes storage easier.
The books are the larger “trade paperback” format with better paper and larger print.
They designed this edition of the books to coordinate their look and identifying them as a set.
This makes a great gift for you or for someone else.


Krosmaster Arena Frigost Board Game
Krosmaster Arena Frigost Board Game

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes Arena a better game, April 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
You should not be considering this unless you, or the person you are buying it for, play a lot of Krosmaster Arena.
This is an expansion to that excellent game but it is not a stand-alone game.
Buying this and some figure packs, will not give you the necessary items to play Arena.
If you do not own Krosmaster Arena, buying this is going to waste your money.

The content of this expansion has generated mixed reviews.
Yes, there is only one new character. However, Count Harebourg is an impressive character.
He is one of the more detailed characters with interesting powers and is fun to play.
The double-sided map has some interesting features that make you think and do add considerations to the game.
Some new powers, most dealing with cold weather, can have some interesting ramifications and uses.
The AX and Hand zone of control add to the multiple square attacks we already have.
The MOBs are unique and several are very good. A couple are cold weather copies from Arena but most are new.

The biggest change is the introduction of Ruby Demonic Reward Tokens.
The expansion contains new rewards for the existing levels too.
Ruby rewards are expensive, 18 Kama, but they are high-power items.
The second game-changer is Trophy rewards that can only be used if/when you are losing.

Overall, I am very happy with this expansion as it makes a great game even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, April 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
“Sturdy” is the first impression I had of this stroller.
This is a stroller that you can put a child into knowing they will be comfortable and safe.
This is all metal, solid plastic and webbing held together with rivets and double stitching.
With all of this, it is not unusually heavy or hard to maneuver.
The mesh seat will be cooler in summer and the padded fabric insert will help block the cold winter winds.
I found collapsing the stroller a little complex but am adjusting and it is getting easier.
The ability to stand collapsed is great!
Collapse the stroller, lock it closed and stand it up. It is not going to start rolling away as it opens or fall over into the dirt.
Slip an arm through the shoulder strap and you are ready to walk away.
Do not forget the diaper bag, bottles, toys and kid that no longer fit in the stroller ;-)

Calvin Klein ETERNITY Eau de Parfum, 1 fl. oz.
Price: $45.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, April 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am never entirely comfortable ordering a new scent unless I can smell it first.
With a wife, daughter and granddaughter, I was confident one of them would like it.
This is a very nice flora scent with an under tone of berries that my wife liked at once.
This is not a heavy overpowering scent that refuses to dissipate.
This lite scent suggests that suggests itself but seems to stay just on the edge of your senses.

5.0 out of 5 stars My wife is very happy, April 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Brother is one of the most trusted brand names for sewing machines, having a reputation for both quality and long-life.
A serger is that last item that every serious sewer would like to have but somehow seldom gets.
My wife loves this serger and says it is easier to use and better designed for sewing than any one she has looked at in the past.

Opening the book, the first thing you see is an instructional DVD that is easy to follow and my wife found to be very useful.
The Amazon page lists all the “bells & whistles” included in the box.
I may not know what they are but my wife kept saying, “Good, they gave me that” as she unpacked.
While well built and very sturdy, I do not find it a “heavy” item; it weighs less than her Brother sewing machine.
This nice looking machine matches my wife’s Brother sewing machine.


Sharp Objects
Sharp Objects
by Gillian Flynn
Edition: Paperback
Price: $7.84
373 used & new from $0.46

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good book, April 14, 2015
This review is from: Sharp Objects (Paperback)
This is not a nice comfortable read.
The characters are not likable and/or badly damaged people.
The crime is the murder and mutilation of two young girls the most unpleasant of crimes.
Some will find the book “slow going” and drop it about page 50.
Sticking with it, spins a story of physical and mental abuse, downright meanness and deep seated emotions that captured me.
This very well written book has dialog and situations as unpleasant as they are that are realistic.
Make sure you have time set aside to read the last 20-40 pages, once you start reading them, you will not want to stop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice tablecloth, April 12, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a good quality tablecloth appealing to the eye and the hand.
The cloth has a nice feel that says quality materials.
The white light brown is a nice contrasts going with almost everything.
A decorative stitching between the two colors is a nice touch.
My wife is happy with it and it washes well.
