mikerants's Thoughts: After watching the 1931 classic film Dracula at a local cinema, Indiana Jones and his trusted sidekick (YOU!) find themselves on a quest across Europe to track down the cup of Djemsheed, a mythical artefact which legend has it grants immortality to whoever possesses it. Now, you and Indy are in a race against time to stop the evil occultists 'The Friends of Dracula' from locating the cup and covering all of Europe in the dreaded curse of the vampire!

I originally played this one back in the 80s. It was living on a shelf at the back of my primary class in school, and I recently found a copy of it on eBay. The Find Your Fate series works just like Choose Your Own Adventure. There is no character sheet, nor any need for dice; you simply choose from the available options given at the end of each page to decide which direction the main characters will take.

I found this one to be quite a lot of fun. It was great playing as Indiana's sidekick, although the emphasis of whether you are playing as the sidekick or as Indiana himself becomes blurred as the book progresses. It was well written and has some great little hand drawn pictures to accompany the story.

The only problem with The Cup of the Vampire is that you can actually complete the story in a very short space of time if you make the right decisions. However, if you take the more adventurous choices in the book, you'll have a great time!

You'll find my play through of this book on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nujIbWswZZk if you want to play through it with me :)

I'll give this one a 7 out of 10.
