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.

    I’ve never seen an ad for endless quest books. I only encountered them in a big batch at some garage sale back in the day. What magazine/comic/whatever is that out of?

    btw, The pic above is linked to a 404 page. I assume it’s supposed to link to a larger version of the pic (or perhaps it’s not supposed to be linked at all *shrug*).
