Fighting Fantasy Competition of the CenturyEdit
- Main article: F.F. Bookmarks Competition
The bookmarks in fact detailed two competitions to test "all your skill and ingenuity."
The Adventurer's CompetitionEdit
Each bookmark contained a new chapter in the adventures of Jerik Kalazar, a famed adventurer and treasure seeker. In each story there was a puzzle which had a one syllable word answer. If you could solve the puzzle you could send in your answer by postcard and potentially win:
- A complete signed set of FF books
- £10 of Puffin Books
There were also Runners up prizes consisting of 100 Fighting Fantasy Posters.
The closing date of this competition was 31st March 1987.
Part 2 - "The Grand Quest"Edit
This was what was referred to as the Fighting Fantasy Competition of the Century. If you collected all 5 bookmarks and solved every puzzle you would have had 5 words altogether. Taking the letters of all of them, you had to jumble them together in order to find the location of Varag Hawkflight's treasure. This would have entitled you to enter the "Fighting Fantasy Competition of the Century". By sending your answer, together with the cut-off section on the corner of all 5 bookmarks, you could win an incredible prize consisting of:
- A monster day out with Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone including a visit to Games Workshop Factory in Nottingham and lunch with the Puffin Fighting Fantasy editors
There were also runners-up prizes consisting of 200 Fighting Fantasy posters.
The entry to this part of the Competition was only valid with the cut-off sections from all 5 bookmarks and the closing date was also 31 March 1987. The entries had to be sent to "F.F. Bookmarks Competition", Puffin Books, 27 Wrights Lane, London W8 5TZ.
