Gamebooks & Goonies is an RPG rule system for gamebooks, CYOA and similar. It's mainly designed for single-player computer games, but still described in terms of real dice and the like. It's also a very small game of only 1000 words.

The rules belong in the 2d6 family, meaning all rolls use just a pair of six-sided dice, with modifiers. From the contents:

  1. Game structure
  2. Success and failure
  3. Abilities
  4. Character creation
  5. Combat
  6. Magic
  7. Rest and healing
  8. Character advancement
