Gamebook Friday: Fighting Fantasy in Four

Over on the Unofficial Fighting Fantasy Forum you will find a thread in which fans of the FF phenomenon attempt to sum up various titles from the series in four words. If you know anything about the FF gamebooks, it's a fun read, but the ones I'm posting here are all to do with my books.

Knights of Doom: Jon Green likes Excalibur

Howl of the Werewolf: No more encounter boxes

Howl of the Werewolf: summon demon, become monster

Night Of The Necromancer: you only live thrice

Why not try coming up with your own four word summation of books in the series and then post them here, or on the forum? Perhaps you could be the first to come up with something for Spellbreaker, Curse of the Mummy, Bloodbones or Stormslayer.

Fun! Thought I'd have a go...

Spellbreaker - Pandora's Box got real
Bloodbones - Pirate Voodoo? BRING it.
Stormslayer - A likely chance of rain...
Curse of the Mummy - Snakes? I HATE snakes.

I die horribly, repeatedly.

Love it - especially your suggestions, Magda.

I'd wondered about these myself.

Spellbreaker - My first ever book
Knights of Doom - My second ever book
Curse of the Mummy - My third ever book
Bloodbones - My thirteenth ever book

Anyway, you get the idea...

I can sum up several books easily in four words:

DAMN YOU, IAN LIVINGSTONE!
