Published in 1993 by TSR, Inc., who also published Dungeons & Dragons, Dragon Strike was made to be an introduction for players new to Role Playing Games. The game featured a large number of pre-made adventures, simplifed rules, pre-made characters and other features to help new players get accustomed to the genre. One of the most notable mechanics of the game was that it used cards to randomize traps and loot meaning that even when replaying old adventures the traps and treasure would always change. Despite how simplified the game was, it was actually rather fun to play.That being said, that is not what this game is known for.The game also included a VHS containing a thirty-minute So Bad, It's Good short film made to be a visual representation on how to play the game. The plot of the video is about a group of unseen players sitting down to play Dragon Strike which an overly-enthusiastic (and Hammy) DM who is represented by a floating head in the darkness. In the game, the players are a group of adventurers who are sent on a quest to stop an evil wizard who has put a curse of eternal night onto the land. Ironically, the VHS is actually better known than the game that it came with.
