This is a very fine and comprehensive treatment of a basic type of trap, both providing a complete listing for simple pits and presenting many well-thought-out variants.

The game stats have a solid and reliable feel to them.

This bit of art doesn't do justice to the production quality of the interior which is well laid out, carefully edited and has, get this, coloured bookmarks.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
