LadyDragon was flew in to the event at the
internet café in Toronto which presented the
Hasbro company. It should be mentioned that the
designer of the hit game, Klingon Honor Guard,
Christopher David Clack, who was responsible for
its promotion in Canada was applauded for his
efforts. During the interview, the objective of
Hasbro became clear: the simple promotion of its
products throughout all of Canada, including
Quebec, of course. The details of the interview
Why have you
chosen Canada as a promotion site for the Hasbro
We noted that the
consumers of here itself démarquent of several
other places in the World. There is more people
with a computer and have straight them also to be
informed of the last innovations in the
recreational gaming world.
well-recognized for its ability to bring back the
classics in "Return" games. How do you
explain the success of these adapted games?
In our opinion,
it is clear that people like varied games that
are not always so complicated. Take Jeopardy for
example. The television show is very popular but
it would be somewhat difficult to play as a board
game. The computer offers more interactivity and
allows amateurs to play these corporation games
too. Also, it is possible to play several of
these games via the Internet against a competitor
situated across the world.
The game Klingon
Honor Guard is not well-known in Canada, do you
think it will have great success here?
We are confident
that Klingon Honor Guard is a game which is
marked by the manner of which history itself
unfolds. Klingons do not like to be beaten with
rifles, they prefer hand-to-hand combat. This is
the mind-set that we have used in creating this
game. We think that fans of Star Trek will find a
special interest in acting as a Klingon. Trekkies
are everywhere, including Canada.
Will Hasbro be
more and more evident at future events in Canada
It is essential that Hasbro be present at each
event. If the consumer is not informed of the
latest innovations through such promotions, then
our products will fail. It is important to be in
contact with the people who support us and those
whose needs we support.
Jeopardy is an
excellent game, but the return of Clue is
surprising to say the least. Do you foresee a
sequel to Clue?
question. When a title is popular, it is
interesting to continue the tradition and produce
sequels. On the other hand, Clue was inspired by
a board game which is not the case in the
majority of games. Who knows what one can expect
with all the miracles of technology!
happy to see that the companies in the gaming
industry are beginning to show themselves here in
Canada has become
a strategic point. The sales proved that there is
a substantial request and if there is a strong
demand, it is therefore necessary to supply that
need and to offer the consumers the latest
products in the industry.
We thank you. One
last question before leaving. Will Quebec be
pinpointed for your next promotion?
we can participate in an event, we will be
present, including Quebec, of course.
Furthermore, Quebec is a very computer-literate
city. Thank you for allowing us to come and for
the pleasure of your interview.
