The dreaded pirate-lord Cinnabar, scourge of the twelve seas, plagued the seafarers of the Old World in a bloody reign of terror until a brave adventurer put an end to his evil. But now he is back from the dead, seeking revenge, with the dark powers of voodoo at his command.


Considered by some Fighting Fantasy fans to be the 'lost' book in the series, Bloodbones was originally to have been published in 1998. Wizard Books finally published Bloodbones in 2006 after a poll for fan requests for which books in the series to reprint. The Tin Man Games edition of Bloodbones features maps for the Port of Crabs and Bone Island, full-colour illustrations (as well as their black and white versions) and the bookmarking system of previous Tin Man titles.


  • Make the gamebook as easy or hard as you like and even turn on a special cheat mode to read it old-school!
  • Choose between full colour images, or toggle between the black-and-white originals from the print edition!
  • Use unique weapons like the Throwing Knives and Gas-Globes for added strategy in fights.
  • Race against the clock to complete your quest!
  • Plot your journey along the map as you travel to new locations.
