12 Days of Gamebooks

What is fast becoming a yearly tradition for us at Tin Man Games, we present The Twelve Days of Gamebooks, a fun way for us to reveal to all of you that read our blog, exactly what we have planned for 2014 and beyond. If youíre unfamiliar with how it works, we open a door of our calendar every other day, starting on Dec 1st. It will reveal a picture and we then let you guess what you think it will be Ė sometimes itís easy, other times even the gamebook experts might be flummoxed! Around 24 hours later we write a blog post about the gamebook (or sometimes entire gamebook series) that is revealed.



We've already been running it for 10 days and have opened 5 doors so far revealing:

1) Fighting Fantasy: Island of the Lizard King
2) The Second Garden
3) To Be or Not To Be: That is the Adventure
4) Golden Dragon Fantasy Gamebooks series
5) Fighting Fantasy: Starship Traveller

By the way we know that advent calendars have double the amount of doors and that the 12 Days of Christmas run after the event, but hey, this is the 12 Days of Gamebooks! We make the rules.

To stick with the rules you should have been rolling 2 d6 to choose the door that's opened.
