Farsight Blogger and Precis Intermedia have got together and are offering one lucky person the chance to win a copy of the pocketbook edition of ‘ANCIENT ODYSSEYS’, the introductory roleplaying game!

The ENnie Award-winning Ancient Odysseys: Treasure Awaits! is designed as an introductory fantasy roleplaying game that lets you start playing in less than 10 minutes. Playable either as a solitaire or multiplayer game, Treasure Awaits! requires only a single six-sided die for quick and easy resolution to conflicts. Experience perilous traps, vicious monsters, toxic poisons, powerful magics, mysterious potions, and valuable treasures. Even if you're a veteran gamer, this new take on an old style of gaming will relieve your retro-fantasy cravings.

Begin with the basics of play, proceed to explore and loot a ready-made dungeon, and then learn how to create your own exciting adventures. Everything you need is included, but does not limit the possibilities. For those who like to tinker and add house-rules, the consistency of the mechanics makes that a breeze.

Gather your friends and lead them on a daring quest for glory, whether they're sitting in front of you or via web-chat. And if they can't come out to play, the game also supports a solitaire experience using pre-made dungeons or on-the-fly random tables. Unleash your imagination and enter the dungeon. 

To win a copy of this fantastic game simply answer the following question:
