From the back cover:
" Here ye, hear ye, adventurers one and all! Will you attempt The Game, a competition like none before? Are you fast enough to dodge razor-sharp blades? Are you quick enough to evade the fangs of giant serpents? Are you brave enough to venture through a gauntlet of doom that will challenge every fiber of your being, strain every portion of you beyond any point it has gone before; tire you, then force you to press on even further? Only the strong, the quick, and the courageous have any hope of facing The Game.
Can you collect the reward: your weight in gold! Are you reckless enough to enter The Game, and smart enough to achieve victory? Are you a winner... or a coward!
Let those who dare enter the contest offered by the Gamesmen of Kasar."
