Fighting Fantasy

The original run of Fighting Fantasy was 1982 to 1995, and covered 59 books. They were published by Dell in the US and by Puffin everywhere else.

In 2001 Wizard Books bought the intellectual property and began republishing old FF titles with new covers, and also publishing new FF books.

Sorcery! was a four-part series by Steve Jackson. The books form a sequence, a series which your hero plays from one to the next on a four-part epic quest. (kind of like Way of the Tiger)

1 The Shamutanti Hills
2 Kharé: Cityport of Traps
3 The Seven Serpents
4 The Crown of Kings


Clash of the Princes

Clash of the Princes was a pair of gamebooks, providing two different versions of the same adventure for two players. The two of you play a brother, one a wizard and one a warrior, in a semi-cooperative adventure for two.

Clash of the Princes, The Warrior’s Way
Clash of the Princes, The Wizard’s Way


Video Games

Many of the gamebooks have been adapted to digital form as gamebooks. But they have also inspired a few “real” video games inspired by the gamebooks, but offering a wholly new experience.

Prove that those impossible fights are really impossible.  🙂 — I wrote this program to answer an age-old question: if two players had 12/24/12, and one had a Potion of Luck and the other a Portion of Stamina, who is more likely to win? Short answer: Stamina. Read the results here.
