A refreshingly different solo adventure. Between jobs, you get sidetracked and end up at a circus. Encounters ensue.

The story itself is good, and the encounters offer a pretty good variety of choice, especially for something scripted. Much of the combat is pretty difficult; you're up against some seriously high moster ratings, especially if you've created a new Level 1 character for the adventure (which is what the book advises). The key, I discovered early on, is to use magic whenever available. That helps...a lot. Otherwise, cheat (I admit, eventually I had to nerf some of the monsters to a more reasonable rating, but such is the beauty of tabletop gaming).

It's a fun adventure, very unique, and its use of magic is very effective. It also includes a DM guide if you want to do the adventure as a multiplayer game. Play this! It's WELL worth it.

Tired of deep, damp dungeons? Take in a show - at the circus sideshow, for a refreshing change. Remember what they told you about Evil Clowns?

All seriousness aside, Holmes once again twists the conventions of solo adventures and presents one with humor, surprise, playability, and - most important - fun to play! For only a buck?? That's way too cheap for this solo! The presentation is such that you probably won't even notice that it uses a convention from FBI's Solo #2.

It's so good and so different, that it ought to be packaged with every Tunnels & Trolls box.
