Oh, this takes me back. I haven't had it for years, but when I was eleven, this was the first D&D supplement I had. And I used it to death. My adventurers faced the Speeding Ball Game, tried to use Rahn-Ko's Ranger Fooler and wnet to cloud castles. The stuf in here is really silly: there's a top-loader automatic washing machine with these skeletons in it that put the clothes on and jump up and down while being doused with water, and an ATM with a gnome sitting behind it... but that appealed to me. Fans of Paranoia will recognise Jim Holloway's artwork, full of fat gnomes and confused-looking half-orcs. Would I use any of this stuff now? Naah. But it's one of the cheeriest, breeziest, RPG supplements of its era. Not for the player who takes himself seriously, mind. 4 for the nostalgia.
