 CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- A popular Microsoft (NASDAQ-NMS: MSFT) and Verbatim Corporation promotion called "Microsoft(R) Games Sampler" continues with a free disk containing four new fully operational games, one from each of Microsoft's four different Entertainment Packs. Mail-in rebates for two free floppy disks or a $2 rebate on your next data cartridge purchase add even greater value to this exciting offer.
 The promotion is available in specially-marked packages of Verbatim brand floppy disks and quarter-inch data cartridges. The promotion runs from November through Jan. 31, 1994.
 "You not only get high quality Verbatim disks -- the best-selling floppies in the world -- you get four more free games from the Microsoft Entertainment Pack series as well," says Daune Morris, Verbatim promotions manager.
 "People who tried TaiPei, FreeCell, SkiFree or Dr. Black Jack in the first phase of the promotion are already asking for the new games. Customers were pleasantly surprised in the first phase of the promotion and they can't believe we are doing it again. This time buyers will receive Klotski(R), JezzBall, Cruel, and Rodent's Revenge."
 The games will be packed in Verbatim DataLife 5.25" high density IBM formatted floppy disks, unformatted and IBM formatted 3.5" high density floppy disks and 3.5" unformatted double density disks.
