Endless Quest Books

This ad really takes me back too my geek roots. Starting in 1982 TSR released a series of Choose Your Own Adventure books called, Endless Quest books. These books were an Ogre’s height better then your average CYOA book in that they had better character development. You just weren’t Mr. Knight or Ms. Wizard. You were Harkden of the Capaloks or some junk like that. Dozens of these books were released in the 1980s and they made for fun geeky back seat fun when your family was stuck in traffic on the way to the Jersey Shore.

If you are a fan, you can either dig through my my musty boxes of books and find a few dogeared copies or head over to ebay and pick up a couple of these gems and free them from their Mylar prisons.

Playing Advanced Dungeons and Dragons in 1985

Today’s Photo of the Day veers away from from computers to concentrate on another of my favorite childhood hobbies, Roleplaying. The pic, taken by Jason Azze, shows Jason and his buddies sitting around a table playing one of the best games ever made, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. I am fascinated by images like this, since it captures moments from my childhood so perfectly. What is different from my experience as a kid, is that we did not have a cool fondue pot in the background and the DM screens where ALWAYS firmly in place when we played.
