Fun for Friday: Choose Your Own Adventure

By Balloon to the Sahara cover
If you grew up in the 1980s, like I did, you’re probably familiar with the Choose Your Own Adventure series of books. Atlas Obscura has a fantastic article talking about the different decision trees that were used in the different books, including the very complex tree forĀ By Balloon to the Sahara.

I tried to write my own Choose Your Own Adventure-style short story once, but mine only had a single decision point, with two possible endings. And, in the end, it didn’t actually work well. But now, armed with these decision trees, I feel like I might be able to get somewhere with this sort of idea!
