Description

"What would I do if my favorite fantasy world came to life? It's a question every nerd has asked him or herself, and Dave Barrett answers it in a tremendously fun, well-written story of swords, sorcery, and survival." -- Dan Casey, Senior Editor of Nerdist In Book One of the Fun and Games series, when Allison's best friend, TJ, convinces her to come along for an epic game of LARP (live-action roleplaying), she reluctantly agrees despite her reservations about the geeky pastime. TJ's weekends are filled with powerful wizardry, mystical creatures, and intense battles with his LARP group. Each adventure is full of surprises, but the goal is always the same--to defeat the monsters and find the treasure. Not long after their quest begins, the friends discover that something has gone wrong. The fantasy world they've built has transformed, and the battle they're in the midst of is no longer make-believe. Now they must fight for survival against brigands, kobolds, and other deadly mythical creatures that come to life. Fortunately, the group's once-fictional magical powers have also become real--including Allison's newly acquired gifts as a healer. They'll need everything in their arsenal if they hope to make it home alive.

Review quote

"What would I do if my favorite fantasy world came to life? It's a question every nerd has asked him or herself, and Dave Barrett answers it in a tremendously fun, well-written story of swords, sorcery and survival." -- Dan Casey, Senior Editor of Nerdist and author of 100 Things Star Wars Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die "It's fun and exciting to get lost in a fantasy world while roleplaying. It's All Fun And Games shows that getting lost in one for real might not be as fun, but it's no less exciting!" -- Jon Verrall, co-creator of hit Geek & Sundry web series LARPs "It's All Fun and Games is as much a nostalgia trip for grownup gamers as it is a gateway drug for the next generation. A rollicking good portal fantasy starting with boffer swords instead of d20s." -- Dave Gross, author of Pathfinder Tales: Lord of Runes "It's All fun and Games is one of those rare books that makes you wonder if around every corner magic and adventure await. Kids and adults alike will find themselves swept away into the world Mr. Barrett has created." -- Shannon Mayer, USA Today Best-selling author of the Rylee Adamson series
