Tunnels & Trolls

My 1986 copy of Tunnels & Trolls, an update of the 1975 pamphlet version with art by Josh Kirby, who later did the covers for the Discworld series. I don’t think I’ve ever actually played this outside of the gamebooks, and it’s a curious system: Monsters are represented by one number, growing weaker as they take damage, and in combat everyone rolls a bunch of D6 and adds them together to produce a single total for each side, with the losing side sharing out damage equal to the difference.

James Holloway talks about it in this episode of Monster Man.
