The Second Rainbow Book of Adventures is a collection of twenty-four BASIC adventure games. The book contains an introduction and the program listing for each game. A companion item, The Second Rainbow Adventures Tape, includes executable copies of all the games in the book, plus an additional three games whose listings were too lengthy to be included in the book.

The book and accompanying tape were first announced with a full-page, color ad in the October 1985 issue of The Rainbow. (They both appeared in the list of items that could be ordered in the Rainbow Bookshelf ad of the September 1985 issue, but were not featured in this ad or issue in any other way.)
