As Role Playing Game supplements go¸ this one has all the elements of a must-have. Along with the Q-Manual and Basic game¸ this add-on shows once again the high quality of gaming materials Avalon Hill has become known for. Being the last supplement published for the highly underrated role playing game featuring the worlds greatest spy¸ Thrilling Locations is one of the jewels of the collection. (As a side note¸ Avalon Hill was purchased by Hasbro Interactive in 1998 and it has become unclear what will happen to the James Bond 007 roleplaying franchise as the company is restructured to fit Hasbros business model.)
If you play the James Bond roleplaying game¸ and particularly if you are a game master¸ this is an invaluable resource. One can find in-depth information about the ritzy locations and high-priced vehicles James Bond would encounter in one of his most extravagant missions in Her Majestys Secret Service. From casinos to restaurants¸ yachts to jets¸ this book gives in-depth descriptions and game stats on the most expensive of Bond locations and vehicles. One can also find the bios and stats of the people who can afford to live such an outrageous lifestyle¸ or those work for them. This softcover book features color photos and the information is surprisingly accurate¸ as the book was written with the cooperation of the actual establishments and manufacturers it features.
Thrilling Locations also contains the rules and game mechanics for a host of games of chance that players may encounter in the game¸ including roulette¸ blackjack¸ and of course¸ baccarat.
