I was introduced to Xanth through the "Companions of Xanth" game... the version I got came with a free Xanth book. Not my most favourite game ever, but there were too many awesome/terrible puns for me not to like it. I love how the world operates on the figurative rather than literal versions of phrases (e.g. physically kicking "the bucket" ends in a game over because the character died). I'd definitely play another Xanth adventure game.
