Here's another Knizia that never saw the light of day. There were some pics and the characters at least had names and special powers, and I was really excited that my son would like it. But sadly, it has been officially cancelled Really too bad, because a kid's version of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen sounded like a lot of fun

I'm still looking for the perfect "adventure" game. I like the idea of games that tell stories, but so many of them end up missing the point (Tales of the Arabain Knights) or are just plain boring to me, depite the great theme (Arkham Horror). I recently played "Fortune and Glory" which wasnt too bad, but we played the basic game and cut it short. If I hadnt been on the cusp of running away with the whole thing I might not have enjoyed it as much.

Anyone out there have the perfect "adventure" game for me?

Novel and very interesting theme, and Reiner Knizia. Unfortunately, the company shut down before release. The game later became Municipium. I can't imagine how the mechanics would fit the theme, though.

Apparently this Knizia title disappeared when the company publishing it went belly up. It was essentially a character driven pulp adventure game.


"In the early 20th century THE ADVENTURE LEAGUE is formed by Lord Rex Hunter. This society of treasure hunters, adventure seekers, and artifact collectors gathers men from around the world to share their tales of glory. Each runs a global network, questing for fame, wealth, and the prestige of their home country. Together they pursue a cult that would use the powerful relics for evil, but each adventurer wants the victory to be his alone.

Players follow clues and try to collect all the pieces of an ancient artifacts by strategically deploying their forces and gaining majorities in forgotten territories like El Dorado, Atlantis, and Shangri-La. Leading each team are world famous heroes:

LORD REX HUNTER - Reginald Hunter was heir to a Lordship in Great Britain. His parents were chemists who were doing research in Africa when the family was lost to Ivory poachers. Years later, Rex turned up in the UK with the adventurous spirit and intelligence of his parents and the savage power of his jungle upbringing. He started THE ADVENTURE LEAGUE.

DRAGON PRINCE - A true member of Eastern aristocracy, the Jade Dragon, as some call him, was never content to sit on his riches. He uses it to help those in need and for his globe-spanning adventures to recover lost artifacts of great wealth and power. Best friend of Lord Rex Hunter, but also his fiercest competitor, the Dragon Prince was the first to join his LEAGUE.

DOC ROCKET - "Doc Rocket" is Dr. Werner Von Bronz, one of the greatest scientists of 1920's Germany. He is a physicist, adventurer, and archeologist who scours the globe looking for ancient technologies to incorporate into his gadgets. He is a former WWI fighter pilot of great courage and nobility, loyal to both his own Germany and the LEAGUE.

THE WRAITH - All that is know about his previous life is that he was a police officer in a large American city on a crusade against organized crime. He now fights crime on a global scale with relentless energy and sharp focus. Some say he cannot die. His devoted followers supply him with the scientific and financial resources he needs to carry on his campaign for justice, within and outside of the LEAGUE."

The league of extraordinary gentlemen (2003)

Ingredients :
-1 great comic book
-1 toilet roll (best if "used")
-tipex or white-out
-scissors
-a heap of $$$

Recipe :
- tipex/whiteout all the balloons of the comic book
- cut-out carefully all the comic's panels (take care of not removing the tipex in the process)
- throw away half of the previously cutted panels
- replace the missing half by toilet paper leaves
- stack the cutted panels + toilet paper leaves, then flush
- align randomly, now you should have a nice turdy sequence
- add the heap of $$$
- serve tepid, garnished with famous casting

PS : the SF/Fantasy status of this movie can be argued, but it really deserved to be in this list IMO.
EDIT : vocabulary...

I loved reading the "Choose your Own Adventure Books". Making the decisions yourself really immersed you in the stories and helped you see the consequences of decisions.

I think they could be a good bed time read for younger kids as you let them decide what happens next.

How about this one. Not only has the game not come out, but the company has stopped doing games. Odd to think the a RK game with a hot theme has not been picked up be somebody.
