Do we have any DragonStrike board game players here?

Remember the old board game DragonStrike? For the uninitiated, it's a TSR board game, originally released in 1993. It plays much like HeroQuest. Complete with two reversible game boards, numerous miniatures, dice and cards, the game served as a superb introduction to Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition.

DragonStrike
was my introduction to D & D and I now own three copies of the game. One of them is complete. What do all of you think of the game? Any fond memories? Interested in hearing the story of how I came to acquire so many copies of the game, including some brand new replacement monsters, still on their sprues? I would be happy to share the link.

Most of all, I just want to discuss this excellent board game. I played a few of the adventures last week with my family and we had a blast. D & D 5e it isn't (the new edition is what my family is most familiar with), but it's a blast from the past, still relevant in the present.

I have not played this game in decades.

I still prefer HeroQuest, or better yet Advanced HeroQuest to it.

But at the time, needing a quick fix for D&D, it was OK.

I have the boardgame, but haven't played it in a few years. I recall it was fun when we did play it.
 
This seems to be a common thread in regard to this game. Many of us have/had it, but haven't played in years. I need to get a new game session going with my family. They're, shall we say, resistant to RPGs.

I don't know if any of my friends and I actually ever played it, but the tape was something my college friends and I used to throw in once a year to have a laugh at.

I still have the tape and a functioning VCR. :) But I'll be sure to forward the Youtube link to my old circle of gamers.
