I'm trying to dig up info on a game I played years ago, here's what I think I know:

  • The name was most likely Challenge.
  • Made use of premade character cards in some way.
  • Mark Rein·Hagen may have been the designer, prior to White Wolf.
  • Published several months before Vampire: The Masquerade.
  • Came in a box, same size as the old D&D basic rules box (the red box).
  • Cover art was probably by Joshua Gabriel Timbrook.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a game that is not an RPG. – SevenSidedDie Oct 30 '14 at 16:48
