As another year draws to a close on your Earthly Plane, it is traditionally a time for reflection. So what have been the highlights of your Fighting Fantasy year?
Was it Fighting Fantasy Fest 3, or The Forester of Doom Beer-o? Perhaps it was seeing the Fighting Fantasy Legends range released at long last by Atlantis Miniatures, or seeing Fighting Fantasy on BBC Click. Was it attending a performance of House of Hell LIVE, or meeting Steve Jackson or Ian Livingstone at an event? Perhaps it was seeing more Advanced Fighting Fantasy supplements released by Arion Games, or the publication of Ian Livingstone's new gamebook, Assassins of Allansia. Or was it the Deathtrap Dungeon Trilogy becoming available on Nintendo Switch? Perhaps some of the aforementioned Fighting Fantasy delights are awaiting you underneath your Christmas tree.
But if you think 2019 was a bumper year for FF releases, there's plenty to look forward to in 2020 too! The delivery of Atlantis Miniatures' Fighting Fantasy Legends Kickstarter. Board games from companies like PSC Games. Branching Narrative's own take on Deathtrap Dungeon. More releases for Advanced Fighting Fantasy and, who knows, maybe more gamebooks...
Deathtrap Dungeon is the gift that keeps on giving, and after the success of House of Hell LIVE at Fighting Fantasy Fest 3, The Storymaster's Tales are bringing Deathtrap Dungeon LIVE to the UK Games Expo in the summer.
All that there remains for me to do is to wish you a Merry Christmas and here's to a fantastic Fighting Fantasy New Year!
