We also were treated with a new version of there classic like Monopoly, Trivia Pursuit II and Scrabble II making better then ever.

Like you can see Hasbro Interactive works hard in being a leader in the industry by developing, publishing and distributing high quality games. Last year they bough Microprose and this year Wizard of the Coast. I had the chance at lunch to discuss that with Joan Ramsay the marketing and sales director of Canada. I was discussing that GT Interactive was bought by Infogrames and that Hasbro was interested in buying it also at one point. I ask her if they were planning to buy more companies ? If something comes up and it make sense in their plan they might buy more. she Joan. As of now they are the third biggest publisher so I think they are here to stay as leader in the industry for high quality games. Already Their new divisions Wizard of the Coast has bough the license to develop the RPG games of Lucas Arts the Star Wars series. So they are entering the new millennium with a strong line up.

LadyDragon.Com would like to thank Joan Ramsay, Stephanie Baxter, Terry McArcren and Shanon Rainey for flying us to Toronto so we could cover their Conference.
