Gamebook Friday: 'TWAS the Book Launch and 'TWAS the Roleplaying Game

A week tomorrow, on Saturday 30th November, ACE Gamebooks will be attending Dragonmeet 2019, under the brand's own name for the first time.

I will be there, of course, but so will Tony Hough, my sometime collaborator and the very talented artist behind the illustrations in 'TWAS - The Krampus Night Before Christmas, which is launching at the event.

So come along to Dragonmeet, at the Novotel Hotel in Hammersmith, and get your books signed by both of us. The trade hall will be open from 10:00am.

Talking of 'TWAS, the roleplaying game inspired by the gamebook is coming back to Kickstarter. The campaign will launch on Black Friday, 29th November, and run until the Longest Night, 21st December.

'TWAS - The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas is a rules-lite RPG, designed to be picked up and played with minimal preparation. It is inspired by the legends and literature of Christmas, as well as the ACE Gamebook 'TWAS - The Krampus Night Before Christmas.

The RPG is available in three formats, PDF, softback and hardback.

If you back before Krampusnacht, the 5th December, you will benefit from Early Bird discounts, which will be active for some of the rewards.

You can also pledge to receive print copies of ACE Gamebook that inspired the RPG, if you haven't got it already.

But if you back within the first 24 hours, you will receive a bonus adventure encounter along with a bonus fully playable character, for no extra charge!

So put the date in your diary now, and I'll see you again on Black Friday!
