Wizards, Warriors and YouThese books were first published by Avon in the United States, but a few of them were reissued with new covers by Carousel in the United Kingdom. They take place in the fantasy kingdom of King Henry, where a legendary pair of unnamed heroes, the Wizard and the Warrior, are frequently called upon to complete dangerous missions. The central gimmick of the series is that the reader has the choice in each adventure of taking on the role of either the Wizard or the Warrior. As the Warrior, the reader must select a limited number of weapons from a list in the back of the book before proceeding on a mission; the Wizard is given a full complement of spells but often has to rely more on luck than the Warrior does. The spell and weapon lists changed twice during the course of the series, adding some variety to the adventures. The books rely heavily on randomization, and most challenges are resolved by flipping coins; sometimes, though, other methods are used, like asking the player to pick a random number or check the time of day or day of the week. All of this use of chance means that the books aren't particularly skill-based, but they have a unique flavor and a considerable number of fans.
