* Creator/SteveJacksonGames licensed their popular ''TabletopGame/CarWars'' tactical combat game as a series of six books published by Creator/{{TSR}} (several being expanded adaptations of adventures previously published in their house organ ''Autoduel Quarterly''), with some random die rolling to simulate combat.
* ''Choose-omatic Books'' are a relatively new series spoofing both the CYOA-concept, as well as the genre covered by their book (ZombieApocalypse and {{Superhero}}, so far). Also, like the early CYOA books that told you how many endings each book had, these ones do too. And tell you how the vast majority [[TheManyDeathsOfYou are some kind of comical death scene]].
* ''Choose Your Own Horrible History'' is a new brand of cyoa novels. ''Killing Hitler with Praise and Fire'' is a choose your own adventure type game about killing or eliminating Hitler to make the world a better place. There are a myriad of options available, though the choice is up to you. Some of the options include infantcide, homicide, altering his preferences in partners, biological warfare, art school, raptor nazis and of course the most cruel, getting him hitched with lots of kids thereby putting to sleep his dreams like he did so many others.

* ''TabletopGame/CarWars'' has a discontinued line of gamebooks that mixed a Choose Your Own Adventure format with actual game mechanics, so the player could roll through combat with enemies. The book even suggested that groups could play together and take control of various characters.
