When I was younger I had a pair of paperback books that you used to compete against each other. They were kind of like choose-your-own-adventure books but you actually had a specific character, the two books were unique, you actually affected the other player and there was some sort of stat keeping (health, strength, maybe magic). I believe that one of the books was a White Knight and the other was a Black Knight.

Come on Geek-sters, anyone know what I'm talking about?

Could it be Lost Worlds?



If so, then also see http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/Lost_Worlds_series

I think Combat Heroes is what you're after.

Hunting the other character through a maze, you saw the other character from your book (like Lost Worlds) but with more puzzle / character stat stuff.

Yep, it sounds like Combat Heroes as the above posted posted.

If not that my next guess would be the 1 on 1 gamebooks.

1 on 1 Adventure Gamebooks: Castle Arcania

Combat Heroes is the one, thanks! Ahh, the memories... I never knew there were more than just the Black Baron and White Warlord.
