 PARKER BROTHERS WRAPS UP THE HOLIDAYS WITH GIFTS FOR $25 OR LESS;


CLASSIC GAMES FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN PROVIDE HOURS OF HOLIDAY CHEER
 BEVERLY, Mass., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- If finding that special gift for someone special is putting a damper on your holiday spirit and added pressure on your purse strings, Parker Brothers offers a solution to this year's dilemma. Games for the entire family including the limited edition 10th ANNIVERSARY TRIVIAL PURSUIT(R); THE MAGIC WISH(tm) game features the popular Troll characters; the lively games OUTTA CONTROL(tm) and SPLIT SECOND(tm) and TRIVIAL PURSUIT FAMILY EDITION will create special excitement for the family. And while priced at $25 or under, these games make the gift of giving both affordable and fun.
 According to Alfred C. Carosi, Parker Brothers' senior vice president, marketing and marketing services, "Even with purse strings being tightened for so many this Christmas, Parker Brothers has a line of games that are traditional favorites and fun for the entire family while priced for $25 or less -- perfect gifts to wrap up this holiday."
 TRIVIAL PURSUIT took the nation by storm less than 10 years ago and to celebrate the past decade of fun, Parker Brothers has created a commemorative 10th Anniversary Edition based on the original Genus Edition. This limited, stream-lined edition of the TRIVIAL PURSUIT game will delight trivia buffs, young and old, experts and novices -- confirming the continued universal appeal of the game.
 And now fans of the TRIVIAL PURSUIT board games have a new way to enjoy trivial competition -- with their entire family. Parker Brothers has recently introduced the TRIVIAL PURSUIT FAMILY EDITION, complete with two separate sets of cards, one for adults and one for kids, so that everyone can play together and at their own level.
 "America's interest in trivia continues to grow," said Carosi. "This new edition extends the fun to a new generation. Separate card sets appropriate for all age groups means more families can spend time together enjoying one of America's most popular games."
 Parker Brothers portable travel editions of BOGGLE(R) and MONOPOLY JR.(R) offers a solution to this year's stocking stuffer dilemma. These games can brighten Christmas morning with gifts that bring some of the world's most popular board games down to size. This portable format allows the games to be played anywhere, while retaining the exciting gameplay of the original board games.
 In addition, those fun-loving Disney characters are going on the road as Parker Brothers introduces the POP-ALONG(tm) GAMES -- also priced under $10. POP-ALONG GAMES are a line of portable, self- contained games featuring car-shaped carrying cases that open up to become the playing board for four different games. Each POP-ALONG GAME stars a different Disney character and theme; Mickey Pizza (shapes and colors), Donald Mailman (letters) and Goofy Taxi (numbers). The games' unique compact carrying case is specially designed for small children's hands to allow them to take the games wherever they go.
 So, no matter who's on your list this year, a game from Parker Brothers can add some holiday cheer and hours of family fun to last all year long.
