If love Choose Your Own Adventure books and comics, then this is right up your alley! Knights Club: The Bands of Bravery is originally a French creation that has been brought to the United States by Quirk Books. It is an interactive tale that focuses on letting you decide how your character progresses through the adventure provided. Your choices dictate the success or demise of these characters, much like a tabletop roleplaying game, but without all the dice or other humans involved.
It is a fun and fateful tale that allows you to bone up on your memory skills all while trying to make it to the end alive and well. Trust me, I slew a few of my characters by missing a clue or just making the wrong choice. I probably spent two hours the first time trying to get to the end. It is certainly not as simple as one might think. And much like tradition roleplaying games, it can get frustrating when you realize you failed to accomplish the mission because of your own terrible choices. Darn those swamps!
In truth, this is probably geared for the middle school group, but as a middle-aged guy, I still found much fun and humor within these covers. But do not cheat yourself out of a rainy day activity. Grab this one for those boring in-between times when you need a pick me up. I mean, sure, you may kill off your player character a few times, but at least you will not be bored!
Enjoy! I most certainly did! And make sure you pick up those weapons, okay?
This middle-grade graphic novel series makes YOU the valiant hero of a fantasy quest—pick your panel, find items, gain abilities, solve puzzles, and play through new storylines again and again!
The year is 1012 in the kingdom of the good king Louis the Little. Three brothers dream of joining the fearless Knights of the Royal Order—and one of these brothers is you! On your adventure you will journey through snowy mountains, mysterious lakes, and haunted forests in search of the coveted bracelets of bravery. You must solve riddles, discover hidden passages, and gather magical objects. Success depends on the choices you make, because the hero is none other than you!
