MAVERICK'S LOST WORLDS GAMEBOOKS

The Lost Worlds gaming system is an innovative
design by Alfred Leonardi.  The system uses
two books to simulate hand-to-hand combat
in a fantasy setting.  The Lost Worlds system
was a follow-up to the classic Ace of Aces
air combat gamebook series.

Although a great deal of planning and care
went into the creation of the Lost Worlds
system, it is extremely easy to play.
Combat is depicted by various illustrations
in the book showing you what your opponent
is doing (or whether or not you are able to
score a hit.)  Player's secretly select a
maneuver and then by cross-referencing their
maneuvers with charts in the books they
arrive at a "programmed" result.

The Lost Worlds system can function as a
quick, stand-alone game system or as a
method of combat resolution for a boardgame
or role-playing game.  Adventure Sets were  
released that featured a set of scenarios
to be played out on plastic three-dimensional
maps using miniatures and Lost Worlds books.
Although the original books were released in 
the 80's, a new series of books and classic 
reprints are currently being produced.

Most of these products are listed with
their original stock numbers.
