I've played this solo twice so far.

I had high hopes for this because I love Heinrich's CoC Guide to Character Creation.

You wander around until you die/ go insane. Which, to be fair, is how most gamebooks are. But here it feels even more due to chance than in any other gamebooks I've played.

Even that wouldn't be so bad though if not for the fact that you need to create a brand new fully fleshed-out character each time through.

I've spent more time rolling up new characters to use for Guide to Carcossa than I have actually PLAYING Guide to Carcosa.

When I first heard about this before it came out, I was CERTAIN I was going to love it. I LOVE the Alone Against the... series. I thought this was going to blow them all away. Instead it just makes me appreciate them all the more.

I will say though that I'm not done with this product yet. I am intending to play it more- when I get the motivation to roll up another character. Maybe I'll yet still find the fun.
