Do you guys have any idea how many adventures me & Indiana Jones went on?! These books were fantastic! Yes they were written for kids/teens, but I WAS a kid/teen in those days. To be able to go on an adventure with my favorite hero was great! I still pick up those books and go out on a fun trip with Dr. Jones and to rekindel my youth!

Boy, does this take me back. I didn't even remember having one of these until I saw the cover for the Gold Of Genghis Khan one. Good thread.

Not too long ago... two of my friends and myself went to the top of one of said friends' roof. There we sat for like 2 hours taking turns reading a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book, actually acting out the voices and such.

How sad considering I was 22 at the time.

On a roof?

I have to admit, I don't have much of a life outside of uni either.

I have the first one somewhere. I thought it was cool cuz it had to do with Indy. I was really young when I got it so I didn't have much say in what my parents bought me or not. Good times looking back.

Exactly! But with the books we got smarter and our imaginations had to fill in the blanks!

I still have a copy of RL Stine's Indiana Jones and the Giants of the Silver Tower. Its a fun Indy story. I bought it at Disneyland about 7-10 years ago.

I have the first 5 books in the Find Your Fate Indy books. I plan on getting the rest. I remember being a kid and enjoying them.

As a kid, I remember being dismayed that you never read these books from the perspective of Indiana Jones. You were always playing as some "sidekick" that traveled with Indy on one of his legendary adventures.

I suppose that was still fun, but I wanted to be Indy!

I think the only ones I had were "Treasure of Sheba" and "Eye of the Fates."

Which book was it where you run into Belloq's brother?

I had one and I think it was called Indiana Jones And The Cup Of the Vampire or something along those lines. Very enjoyable. (And slightly unacceptable when your choice leads to Indy's doom. )

I liked the unsuccessful ending in "Lost Treasure of Sheba" where a mob is after you and there's no escaping it.

As you cower behind Indy, he rolls up his sleeves and says something like, "Get ready kid."

I was optimistic.

I just discovered "Giants" and "Horror Island" in an old box in my room. Alongside them was the original releases of the novelisations. If only I could more than a pound each on ebay...

"While your friends go to camp and travel with their families, you embark on an exciting journey with your cousin Indiana Jones, the great archaeologist, to the distant Coral Sea."

Is this cousin of Jones you play in all the books or just Curse of Horror Island?

A few times it's a cousin, sometimes it's an intern at the museum, at least once it's just a bystander who gets pulled into the adventure.

I think I have them all.

1-9, then 16 and 17. Numbers 10-15 were James Bond, I think. I loved these books when I was a teen. I wish they were still published with the original covers. My copies are pretty worn out, since I got them as they were published. I think a couple were reprinted to cash in on R.L. Stine's name after the Goosebumps series became popular.

I read one of R.L. Stine's Find Your Fate books...it was pretty bad. It was not like Indy at all. skulls falling from mountains, and apes eating people and keeping them hostage . I think that's what the Ape Island one is about... all I remember is that they were not like Indy.

I've got #4 Eye of the Fates. It's the only one I have. They are hard to find. I'd like to get the whole series eventually.

From the Young Indy "Choose Your Own Adventure" series I got #1 and #2. These books are also hard to find.

I have one of the Young Indy "Choose Your Fate" books (the one that takes place in Mexico; I can't remember the title at the moment) but I haven't been able to get ahold of any of the others.

It's South of the Border, which is #2, one of the books I have.
