Publisher's summary

Eight internet friends have an "IRL" meeting in a mountain cabin. But instead of the long weekend get-together they planned, they're suddenly caught up in the end of the world as they knew it!

They just met for the first time in real life last night, and today's group wake-up call is strange messages floating in the air telling them that something called a "System Start" has just happened. Now magic works and technology doesn't. Cell phones won't work, cars won't start, and it's 10 miles to the nearest town. Some of them have families to worry about. Some of them don't even believe this is real. And all of them have secrets they'll have to overcome if they're going to work together and make it back to town alive.

On the way, they'll meet other survivors, also confused, scared, and questioning what's happening. Ten miles doesn't seem that far, but by the end of it, they'll have faced some of the worst that the System can throw at them.

And then things really get interesting.

The small Tennessee town they're trying to reach is isolated, cut off, and surrounded by a new and terrifying world. Outside the town, ordinary creatures are becoming things out of nightmare. And inside the town, legends are coming to life....

Mind Games is a new GameLit/LitRPG novel in the tradition of Tao Wong's "System Apocalypse". If you enjoy books by William Arand, Scottie Futch, and other contemporary LitRPG writers, you'll love Mind Games!

An interesting Book

I enjoyed this book as it took a slightly different way of powering up the MC where it's not just fighting op but gives extra thought to conversations and shows the amount of research pit in to the place where it's all happening which is peigen forge tn. Can't wait to see how this series develops.

Excellent book

A great Lit RPG with really funny comedy. The book features a great story my only complaint was there isn’t more to read yet.

Over all a good book.

As the Title say's it is over all a good book, i enjoy more Litrpg in different worlds or are world sense the threat is more "real" for are characters.
I enjoyed most of the characters in this book with only two maybe a bit more on the annoying side for me, The main characters class and his girlfriends (redhead) class/ability are both very interesting though i found my self wanting to know more about some of the rest of the characters.
Beyond that my only other complaint is the Character sheet, seemed needlessly crunchy, i normally have no issue with light/heavy litrpg mechanics in stories though i favor light ones my self.
My complaint about them feeling needlessly crunchy is we are given the break down of how the abilities work like in a video game/D&D (something i do both of), but the math is never really brought into question so it felt like just a waste and we could have cut it back some for more character interaction or fight scenes.

None the less i am extremely eager to get my hands on the next book in the series! and hope Marc Whipple continues more fantastic pieces of work.

Excellent System Apocalypse LitRPG

I received a free review copy.

I enjoyed this book. The main character and some people he met online meet at a cabin as they practice hypnotism. When he wakes up, he finds The System has taken over the world. Basically, the world has become an RPG with levels, monsters, and loot. He and his friends work to figure out the system, get to town, and help people they find along the way.

This book has many similarities to Tao Wong's System Apocalypse series. However, many people will likely find the main character less annoying (he functions better in a group and doesn't have anger issues), he has mind mage powers, and his new girlfriend can change into a catgirl.

I liked both the book and the narration, which was well done. I look forward to the next book in the series.

High quality LitRPG with adults

I really enjoyed this story. Unlike many other similar stories this one had adults who were rational and intelligent in were a pleasure to spend time with.
