* * *

In this Choose Your Own Adventure, you take up the role of who else but Willy Beamish.
Image That's him there... now, Will's one of those rambunctious archetypes of early 90s, being the middle child in a typical upper middle class American family, who (where we start) is obsessed with science fiction, console games and hanging out with the gang in their tree house. His existence is not entirely idyllic, though - apart from the fact that he risks being thrown into military school, there's also the adventure that takes place over the first few days of summer vacation, in the town of Frumpton.

Willy's ambition is to claim victory at the national NinTari competition. This goal is quickly placed in dire jeopardy though, and to cap it all his father unexpectedly loses his job, the babysitter is a vampire, a street gang terrorizes the town, and a plumbers' revolt is on the horizon! The threats that Willy faces grow more serious, even lethal, in nature.

Of course, I don't doubt you at home will be able to see the story through to the true ending. Advice will be dispensed to you at various points, so you haven't to worry about that. The fate of the story rests in YOUR hands. Only those who vote for each choice can decide where it will go and how it can change the course of history.

Now then... if you have any queries, now's the time to speak.

I almost liked this game but uncontrollably giggled at his pet frog's name.

DAY 1: The last day of term at Carbuncle Elementary...

Image

Earlier, the school principal Mr. Frick addressed his students at the farewell assembly. Seemed like any old assembly at the time - he went on and on about things like "peering forward into an expectant future" and all that boring stuff....

Image

But then something happened that really wasn't meant to... as Mr. Frick droned on, he saw a green blur flash towards him, bowling him over!

Image

And when he got to his feet, everyone present knew his secret...

Image

Well the principal lost more than his hair. That green blur was your pet frog - but as you were nearly bored to sleep you didn't notice he'd sprang out of your backpack until it was too late. It couldn't be denied that he was coming from your position..

Well, the last after-school detention of the year comes along, and it's only you, two other kids, and old Miss Glass.

Your mind is on other things, though.

Image

The New York NinTari Championship! You've been practising every chance you got, I don't doubt! And come the big day - you can picture it now - literal millions crowding into the arena, to watch the incredible face-off between you and one other opponent.

Image

Your opponent twists his joystick some. As do you.

Your opponent goes. You go.

Opponent plays some. You play some ----

Image

Old Miss Glass' voice cuts through your train of thought like her name. Now what do you say..?!
  • - "Don't know, Miss Glass."
    - "I must've got something in my ear - what did you say?"
    - "We can all go home now?!"
"Caveat emptor, Plum: let the buyer beware."
"No, Boddy... YOU beware."

"We can all go home now...?" is what you suggest hopefully.
Miss Glass gives you one of her looks. "I said it's a beautiful sunny day. Your friends are out there, having fun... the birds are singing... and your report cards are in the mail..."

Report cards? Ah, nuts! That C- in Music Appreciation! Well that certainly wasn't your fault.. but how are you gunna explain it to Dad? He'll blow every capillary in his body!

"...won't your parents be surprised when they read your report cards!..."

They certainly will be. And they'll most probably not give you the dough you need to get to the NinTari Championships this summer.

"...just too bad you had to stay here after school, Willy - but then what you did in assembly was disgraceful, just disgraceful. And in front of all the students...!"
One of the other prisoners speaks up: "Hey Miss Glass? I'm supposed to be in juvie court today; may I be excused?"
"You didn't raise your hand," Glass says simply.
"Nice try Carmine!" chortles the other kid.
"No talking in the back, Chubby!"

Image

An involuntary croak comes from your seat and all eyes turn in your direction.

"Do you have anything you wish to share with us, Willy...?"
  • - "That'll have been my frog, Horny."
    - "Must've been something I ate..."
    - "No, Miss Glass."

"No Miss Glass."

"Better," says she. "Now people: I want you to write a composition - it is to be titled 'How I will spend my summer vacation.'"

And with that, she turns away to write on the chalkboard.

Image

You don't think you can take this. You've got to get out of here...!

Well, inside your desk there are a handful of items - and a few are cemented permanently to the bottom owing to the fact that the summer heat melted that mixture of peanut butter, jelly-beans and mayonnaise in your sandwich, and it seeped through the bread and got the ruler and the bottle of Slam Dunk Cola. What's left then is a ringed block of wood, and white and burnt-sienna Crayola crayons. (Actually the Burnt Sienna's quite a collectors item now..!)

Image
  • - Take the wood block
    - Take the white crayon
    - Take the burnt-sienna crayon
    - Write on the wood block with the white crayon
    - Write on the wood block with the burnt-sienna crayon
    - Close the desk

Of course! You knew that piece of wood would come in handy one day. So you pick up the crayon and write, in block capitals.... H..A..L..L...P..A..S..S.

Image

There. Resembles the real deal, I think! That done, you add it to your inventory.

Well, why not. Since Burnt Sienna was deleted from Crayola's colour list, I suppose everyone's wanting one!

After that, you can't really get anything else, and so you close the desk. Miss Glass is still writing when you look up.

You peer out the window. Ah, it's a nice day... too bad you're trapped here with a musty, decomposing teacher... and two other guys....

yeah you can't really find much else.

"Now start writin'. And I don't want to hear a peep out of anyone!" With that, Miss Glass takes her seat at the desk.
