5.0 out of 5 stars A classic book in a lovely hardback format!, 2 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: 25th Anniversary Edition (Fighting Fantasy) (Hardcover)
First published in 1982, THE WARLOCK OF FIRETOP MOUNTAIN started the whole gamebook craze. The first Fighting Fantasy Gamebook, it uses a simple rules system utilising three attributes (Skill, Stamina and Luck) which are determined by dice rolls at the beginning of the book. The adventure is to fight your way through Firetop Mountain at the request of villagers from nearby Anvil, to slay the Warlock tyrant who is holding them in fear.

The game system is quick to use and exciting, and the story (basically a dungeon crawl) is well written. There are plenty of dice rolling combat situations to partake in too, and at a reasonable length of 400 paragraphs (which would become the standard for the Fighting Fantasy Gamebook series) this was a worthy initial gamebook for the series.
Two dice, a pencil and an eraser as all that is needed to play with this excellent book.

This hardback 25th Anniversary Edition has been signed by the authors, and has a wealth of Fighting Fantasy information in the back, including a paragraph by paragraph walkthrough and a map to Firetop Mountain. With the original cover back in place, this excellent collector's book should not be missed!
