This is the first Fighting Fantasy adventure I’ve tried - inspired, as I’m sure many others will be, by the choice of author. Rather than a novel, this is a choose-your-own adventure style game, which I’ve not tried since I was a child.
It’s clear that the format has evolved somewhat, as this has taken elements of role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons, and involves combat and skill tests to find out how well I do on my adventure.
Sad to say, on my first attempt I failed totally to complete the mission - but I’m not put off and will try again soon!
A really enjoyable diversion for a few hours, and one that I’ll certainly try out on younger family members in the future.
