FOUR BRAVE HEROES FACE AN ARMY OF SKELETONS; 'DRAGON STRIKE' AIRS THANKSGIVING WEEK

 LAKE GENEVA, Wis., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Talk about uninvited Thanksgiving guests...
 "Dragon Strike(TM)" opens with a merry medieval banquet scene! Filled with beautiful maidens, court jesters, a portly king, and free- flowing mead, the feast is interrupted by an army of sword-wielding thugs. The ensuing fight takes four brave heroes (a warrior, wizard, elf, and thief) on a treacherous journey to capture Teraptus, an evil sorcerer and cause of the chaos.
 The "Dragon Strike" special airs on 60 television stations across the country Thanksgiving week. The 30-minute program also coincides with the release of the new Dragon Strike adventure game that is now on sale in game and toy stores nationwide.
 "Kids want multi-media entertainment!" said Flint Dille, director of the show. And that's exactly what the Dragon Strike video and game deliver. A free copy of the video is inside every game.
 The video has it all -- monster slaying heroes, magic-wielding sorcerers, and an army of skeletons. It's non-stop action, special effects, and slapstick antics straight from the Three Stooges.
 The game has 16 adventures for hours of fun. Players work together to escape traps and defeat creatures from the film. If they succeed, they'll find treasures and return as heroes.
 The Dragon Strike game is a multi-media experience for anyone who loves action, adventure, and brain-teasing challenges. GAMES Magazine calls it "Superb" and picks Dragon Strike as one of the top games of the year!
 The video and game are the brainstorm of TSR, Inc., of Lake Geneva. Multi-media products are not new to TSR. They are manufacturers of Buck Rogers(R) and Dungeons & Dragons(R) games -- which had television tie- ins.
 The Dragon Strike game is more exciting than board or video games, explains TSR marketing vice president Rick Behling. Players take the starring roles of the heroes in the video and try to overcome incredible monsters and obstacles.
 "Unlike video games, Dragon Strike never plays the same way twice!" he adds. There are 16 different game adventures for endless twists and turns. "Players must also work together as a team to win the game."
 The Dragon Strike game is packed with four colorful game boards, plastic figures, playing cards, adventure books, dice...and the exciting 30-minute "Dragon Strike" video! It can be found in game, hobby, toy, and book stores everywhere. The suggested retail price is $34.95.
 The company also released a series of four Dragon Strike novels, and a Dragon Strike comic from Marvel Entertainment Group. Just in time for the holidays, these items can be found in comic and book stores across the country, too.
