As the title may suggest, I'm something of a gamebook fan, and since accounts of attempts at gamebooks seem quite popular at the moment (see Fighting Dantasy, Gamebook Geek, Turn to 400, May Your Stamina Never Fail and Fight Your Fantasy, for example), I've decided to join in with the fun.
If 'join in' is the right way to put it, as I've been posting playthroughs of Fighting Fantasy adventures at the unofficial forum since 2009. But I'm up to date with that series now. Except for the mini-adventure in the most recent Fighting Fantazine, and since I wrote that one, writing a walkthrough of it would be something of a giveaway.
Still, having spent a significant amount of time over the past few years recounting my gamebook-playing experiences, I felt like doing some more. So I'll be replaying the lot.
That's not all, though, because I own well over 200 gamebooks, some of which I haven't yet actually got around to playing. Consequently, I shall be alternating between FF and the likes of Tunnels & Trolls, Lone Wolf, Proteus, Grail Quest and at least a dozen other series.
Most of the time I will be playing strictly by the rules, even in the knowledge that that may make for extremely short entries on some titles.
That's the introductory waffle over and done with. Some time soon I shall start on the interesting stuff, commencing with a T&T solo that will remain nameless for the moment, as its title may well attract the wrong kind of attention from search engines.
