<div class="aplus"> <h5><div id="header0"></div></h5> <div class="a-spacing-small" id="text0"><p>For number lovers, the Start 11! ...Board game from Ravensburger is an exciting game of chance and strategy. Lucky number 11 starts the game, and the youngest player gets the first go. From there, players build a network of tiles, sequencing tile placement based on the numbers previous players have set down. The first player to place their last tile wins!</p></div> <div class="two-third-col"> <div class="leftImage" style="width: 300px;"> <div id="image0"><img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41-Fv-PmbDL.jpg" alt="" width="285" height="285"><div class="imageCaption">View larger</div></div> </div> <div class="leftImage" style="width: 300px;"> <div id="image1"><img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/417tbchgpbL.jpg" alt="" width="285" height="151"><div class="imageCaption">View larger</div></div> </div> <h5><div id="header1">A Strategy Game for the Whole Family</div></h5> <div class="a-spacing-small" id="text1"><p>A game of numbers, Start 11! is a great game night board game that can be played at a relaxed pace or in exciting speed rounds as players become familiar with the ins and outs of the board. Suitable for ages eight and up, this is a great game to play with children who are just becoming more advanced with numbers, as well as a stimulating game for adults who like a challenge. Luck of the draw combined with strategy makes this an intellectual game that still leaves some outcomes up to chance.</p></div> <h5><div id="header2">Versatile Play Options</div></h5> <div class="a-spacing-small" id="text2"><p>Thanks to the many possibilities, you can bring this game to a babysitting job to make playtime more educational as easily as you can play it with roommates or older members of the family. Plus, a variation of the game (described on the last page of the rule booklet) has players incorporate special symbol tiles in the bag before players draw tiles. This option gives players a fun new alternative to try once they've mastered the original version, keeping play fresh and challenging. Couples will love that this game can be played with just two players. And kids will love that the youngest player gets to go first.</p></div><div class="break"></div> <h5><div id="header3">Strategy Game for Number Lovers</div></h5> <div class="a-spacing-small" id="text3"><p>This building-block game has players create a grid of numbers and, with the alternative game variation, shapes. Depending on the number of players, players take either 15 or 20 tiles and place up to 3 on the board with each turn. The first player with a lucky number 11 tile starts the game--and the first try goes to the youngest player. Number 11 tiles can always be placed on the board. Other tiles must always be placed next to a tile that is already on display on the part of the game board with the corresponding number and one of four colors, represented by the four colored shape cards placed on either end of each row. Gray cards are wild and can be placed in any of the rows. Game rules allow players to place tiles in a joining area and in bridge fields. This is where strategy comes in, as players must keep a close eye on the game board to seize these opportunities during their turn. The game ends when a player places his or her last tile. The remaining players then subtract points for each tile left in their tile holders according to the number value on the tile, so second, third, and fourth place can be determined.</p></div> <h5><div id="header4">About Ravensburger</div></h5> <div class="a-spacing-small" id="text4"><p>Ravensburger has been connecting generations for generations.

Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.</p><p>United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.</p><h4>What's in the Box?</h4><ul><li>(50) Prepared slides</li><li>Fitted wooden case</li></ul></div> Read More
