It adds a new dimension to the Fighting Fantasy experience with the inclusion of interactive cardboard components. Decide your next action by opening envelopes or lifting flaps to uncover jewels, gold and other treasures needed to complete the adventure and defeat the villainous Zanbar Bone.

What is this new Limited Edition?

The original ‘City of Thieves’ gamebook was published in 1983 as a standard paperback with black & white interior illustrations. This new limited never-to-be-repeated edition from The Games Collector is presented in a larger, hardback format for the first time, and is full-colour, featuring entirely new illustrations. Also, for the first time in a Fighting Fantasy book, it includes physical envelopes and flaps to open, revealing the items, maps and letters you need to discover as you explore Port Blacksand. This offering comes with the full endorsement of Ian Livingstone.




Bound and printed to the highest quality by a long-established and highly reputable UK firm, each Games Collector Edition book is hand-crafted. The pages are hand-stitched together rather than glued, allowing the opened book to lie flat without needing to be held. The additional items are individually fixed to the inside pages.



The prototype for this edition was created and illustrated by the Brazilian artist and designer Daielyn Cris Bertelli. Using her design for this limited edition, City of Thieves has never looked so good, and is available in two languages – English and Portuguese.”
