Where Can You Get Linkee?

linkeeLinkee is a board game for all of the family that was launched in 2012 and has taken the country by storm ever since.

Having been rejected by the dragons in Dragons’ Den, the founders went on to prove Peter Jones and the rest of the dragons wrong by making a success of a new board game.

So if you have heard of it, or played it at a friend’s house and are wondering where can you get Linkee? Then look no further!

The fact is that  board game sales have been increasing in the last few years as people are embracing the non-screen culture. Many new board games have come on to the market as well as the old favourites still being sold in ever larger numbers such as Monopoly.

Linkee has become one of the most popular and best selling board games in the UK and is sold online as well as in good toy shops.

There are two versions of the game, a general family version and a version specifically designed for children from 8 years old and upwards. The game only takes a couple of minutes to learn and is fun because everyone can play at the same time and players don’t need to wait their turn.

Check out the links below if you want to buy one of the versions of Linkee that are available:

You can also get booster packs with extra questions for the game although there are 1400 questions in the original pack so that should keep you going for a while.

If you are looking for some of the old style board games then you can often pick up new versions on Amazon or else you can frequently find the original versions for sale on eBay for quite good prices.

If you have the time then take a wander around car boot sales and you will more than likely find some old board games for sale there, just check that they have all the pieces before buying!

What Are the Chances of Winning the Lottery?

What are the chances of winning the lottery with 59 balls?

In October 2015 the national lottery in the UK increased the number of balls in the draw from 49 to 59, thus making it much harder to actually win the jackpot.

Previously, choosing 6 numbers from 49 would give you a 1 in 14 million chance of winning the lottery but now with the extra 10 numbers to pick your 6 numbers from, the chances have massively decreased to 1 in 45 million.

This increase in the number of balls and decrease in the chance of winning have been proven with the fact that the jackpot has continued to be an elusive prize that has not been won since the changes were made, contributing to a massive jackpot of £50 million + which could go on for a couple of weeks.

Tonight’s draw (6th January 2016) will be the 14th rollover jackpot – continuous rollovers since the new rules were introduced. This could trigger more people to buy tickets just because of the size of the jackpot which could then mean that more of the number combinations are covered.

The national lottery website says the following about the limit on the size of any rollover jackpot:

The jackpot can only stand at £50 million for two draws. If no one wins in the second draw, the full amount rolls down and is shared between the players in the next winning prize tier.

So it might be worth waiting to see if anyone wins the jackpot this time and if they don’t then there might be a great chance of winning more money with lower odds in the draw where the jackpot will be filtered down if no-one wins. This would be next Saturday 9th January 2016.

If no-one wins the jackpot on Saturday then the chances of winning with 5 numbers and the bonus ball are around 1 in 7.5 million which is almost twice the odds as winning the jackpot before the numbers were expanded to 59!

So if you want to know what are the chances of winning the lottery with 59 balls then I would say much better if you wait until the jackpot has to filter down!
