no info on when they came out on the link though bud - my point being more a case of the Fighting Fantasy books are a genuine standard - and one that set the stage of course for the development of GW.
not too bothered either way - got a bargain, need a break from the forum evidently, lets leave it there. :)
Edit: also late here, long day, could just be me not with it, Dunno. Inabit! :)
Never thought about publishing dates, actually. I just remembered seeing the CYOA books from about age 7 up. You made me curious: Turns out that Fighting Fantasy was first published in 1982, and CYOA started (under a slightly different name) in 1976. (Jeez, they're as old as me.) So, close together but different takes. I suspect I saw CYOA first because the U.S. tends to look at anything gaming-related as more of a niche thing. *shrug*
So, yay for learning more info to add to that pile of useless trivia in my head. *g*
If they ever have a Humble "choose your own adventures" book bundle I'm in.
Oh heck yeah! In the small town I grew up in, there were three school libraries (elementary, middle, and high school) and a town library, and at one point, I'd read every CYOA book at least twice.
