|User Summary:||The reissue has the original passages in invisible ink filled in.|
In addition to Endless Quest, Dungeons & Dragons also created a number of modules which could be played solo, so would qualify as gamebooks. In addition to offering choices, turning to sections, this one used a magic pen to reveal secret sections.
As a kid I was obsessed with minotaurs, which were my favourite monsters, so this module was the first one I ever bought. I was really disappointed to discover that the "minotaurs" are actually stone golems carved to look like minotaurs that ask you riddles. If you can't answer, you must fight them.
I do remember one good part of the maze. You find a note that says "Nothing lives this way." Then when you proceed you meet a zombie. Gotcha.
The story is for character levels 1-10, which must be the biggest range of levels I've ever seen. My first level thief didn't last long. I never finished it and eventually lost the magic pen, so never will be able to.
Update: I found an online copy with the missing sections filled in, so I could at least get a look at some sections I missed. Doesn't really change my opinion much, but I noticed that the monsters encountered all continue the Greek Mythology theme: harpy, chimera, medusa, cyclops, which is kinda cool.
