This series of gamebooks was actually published as a monthly magazine; however, apart from the unusual format and the inclusion of advertisements, it resembles any other line of British fantasy gamebooks. The rules, which make use of six-sided dice (sets of which were included attached to some issues), are very much in the Fighting Fantasy vein, though their exact details vary from issue to issue. They generally include a few main attributes, the need to manage inventory items, and spells or other abilities. A miniature reprint of the first issue was attached to the front cover of the ninth issue, while the fifteenth issue included a reprint of the sixth issue along with a bonus adventure called "In Search of Christmas." Regular publication stopped at issue nineteen, but a twentieth volume was released as a "special" containing an original story plus a reprint of issue eight.
