Fantasy Favourites Read-a-thon: Choose Your Adventure Game (Percy Jackson)

Posted July 18, 2016 by Inge in Features, Join the Dance // Events, Tags & Challenges / 6 Comments

Hello! Welcome to the very last day of our Fantasy Favourites Read-a-thon, which also happens to be my 24th birthday! *throws confetti over myself* I’m actually not here today, because I’m spending the day at the Harry Potter Exhibition in Brussels with my mom and the lovely Jolien @ The Fictional Reader. While you’re here, though, I have designed something really fun. At least, I thought it was a fun idea, and I hope you think so too, because I’ve put a lot of time and effort into this.

It’s a Choose Your Adventure game, in which you choose your own path in the Battle of Manhattan and try not to die. It’s based on the Harry Potter version which I found on Buzzfeed, but since I couldn’t figure out how to make a proper quiz and the Buzzfeed people never replied to my cries of help (thanks for nothing, you walnuts), I’ve tried to recreate it on the blog itself. Believe me, the coding of this was HELL. I got confused many times.

Anyway, since this game takes place during The Last Olympian, it obviously has SPOILERS FOR THE SERIES, so tread carefully. (Note: it only has spoilers for the first 5 books, so the original Percy Jackson series. You don’t need to have read all 45 of Rick Riordan’s books.) Also, for shits and giggles, I have meandered a little from the original story. (Translation: I had zero respect for the original story and basically did whatever the hell I wanted.) For dramatic and fun purposes, there is MORE CAKE! MORE LOVE! MORE DEATH!

Good luck.



Things are tense at Camp Half-Blood. While everyone is happy that the Princess Andromeda has sunk, it is quite a shock to find Charlie Beckendorf dead. Everyone has gathered in the dining hall, eating cake. You’re sitting at your table with all your siblings, but the cake goes down difficultly. All this talk of impending war and doom has made you queasy. Still, it is cake, and it might be the last time you have it.

Then Annabeth enters the dining hall, a grim look on her face, and you know it in the pit of your stomach: it is time.

Time to fight. Time to defend. Time to war.

You are Erin Goldfin, seventeen-year-old daughter of Athena. You are good at strategising, but even you know that a fight against Kronos, Lord of Time, is almost impossible to win.

Start here > 

So! How did you fare? Let me know what you thought in the comments!

  1. OF COURSE THE WAY TO SURVIVE WAS TO KISS LUKE. I literally died during every single one of the first three steps, but then I remembered who made the quiz.
