The classic Fighting Fantasy choose-your-own-adventure stories helped form the gaming experience of many and they have seen a resurgence in recent years, with the books returning to print from Scholastic.

Legendary games designer Ian Livingstone has a chat with us about the future of the series, including new books on the horizon, and offers up a rather cool prize.

Comment to win a copy of Deathtrap Dungeon signed by Ian Livingstone.

I never read the books when they came out, being in the US. We had Choose Your Own Adventure books and the Lonewolf series. I backed the Tin Man Games Kickstarter for the Warlock book video game, and picked up several of the older engine games. I am having a blast with them, reading them with my wife. We just finished the Snow Witch book for the first time, and tried House of Hell, but quickly died of fright in that one.

I still have about 20 of these books from my younger days (and then some you old git), i remember one book give me head aches………….The Warlock of Fire Top Mountain, i think it took me 20 plus attempts over a period of seven months. Most took me on average six tries, and one (cant remember which) only took me one try from start to finish. The weird thing was i got through it with having only one fight, and that was against the bad guy at the end (if i remember ill post which one it was).

Having a signed copy of one of Mr Livingstone`s books, would be like meeting and shaking the hand of Carl Urban………..out of this world.

Loved FF since they first came out. Tin Man Games have really done them proud, too.

Not just a gateway to RPGs but also a supplement for long dry seasons when real life gets in the way of getting a group together
