Yamileto | 1 comments I read this book around 2003 or before. It is about a child who found a new friend. This kids play role playing games in the new friend's basement.


The new friend's house is burned but it turns out the fire was provocated to get money insurance.

Yamileto, what's the location - country, region, big city/small town?

Are they playing an online or board RPG (role playing game)? What's the theme of the game?

Tris Crescent | 87 comments It’s been a while since I read them, but maybe “The Egypt Game” or “The Gypsy Game” by Zilpha Keatley Snyder? Published in 1967 and 1997, respectively.
