    Look out, world. Here we come!

    You're about to travel the globe with EPYX to compete in eight of the world's most glamorous and unusual sports. From Europe to the Far East, you'll be ocean-hopping to the sites where daring divers sail from rocky cliffs and giants of men match raw power in the sumo ring. You're going to be on their home turf. But it doesn't matter. You'll wipe them out.

    "Excuse-moi. Wheech way to ze Slalom?"

    To become the WORLD GAMES champion, you'll ski the Slalom course at Chamonix. Toss an enormous caber in the hills of Scotland. Fly over the ice to jump barrels in Germany. And pump heavy iron in the Soviet Union.

    In Japan, you'll go stomach to stomach with a 400-pound sumo wrestler. In Mexico, you'll leap from the treacherous cliffs of Acapulco and in Canada you'll fight for your balance against log-rolling lumberjacks. And, in the States you'll ride the meanest, orneriest bull in the Wild West.

    The brand new challenge of eight international events. The glamor of visiting exotic locales. World-class competition reaches new heights of drama, color and excitement in the latest athletic challenge from EPYX.

    In any language, you're about to experience the thrills of WORLD GAMES. Bonne chance!

    VISIT EXOTIC LANDS AND
    WIN OVER THE NATIVES.



    There is a place, probably a long, long way from where you're sitting right now, where grown men actually wear dresses and throw telephone poles in the air as a sign of athletic prowess.

    It is true.

    There is another rather bizarre land where grown men actually throw themselves in the air as a sign of athletic prowess.

    Right off the edge of a cliff.

    We're talking, of course, about Scotland's famous Caber Toss and the death-defying divers of Acapulco.

    Two of the events you'll find in World Games, the newest sequel in our bestselling "Games" series.

    Here's your chance to dash around the globe as a big-time international athlete competing in 8 extraordinary sports.

    Go stomach to stomach with a 400 pound sumo. Jump barrels in Germany. Try Canada's ridiculously difficult log roll. Or ski the brutal, wintry slopes of France.

    Then it's back to the good old US of A to ride a bucking bull. And off again to bully Moscow with some heavy-duty weight lifting.

    If you manage to upset enough countries, your name will be permanently inscribed in the World Hall of Fame.

    This then, is a challenge of global proportions.

    The question is, are you ready to go the distance?

    STAY ON TOP
    OF WORLD EVENTS.



    The following programs are brought to you by an incredible series of events.

    Over 30 of them, to be specific.

    They're the unforgettable events of our best-selling Games series.

    First, World Games. Eight international events ranging from Sumo wrestling to cliff diving. Bull riding to weightlifting. Even skiing the Chamonix slalom.

    There's our enormously popular Summer Games. Break records in track, swimming, diving, gymnastics and skeet shooting, just to name a few.

    There's its equally acclaimed sequel, Summer Games II. Go for the gold in rowing, cycling, equestrian, fencing, the high jump, the triple jump, kayaking, and more.

    Finally, there's the icy challenges of Winter Games. Wait'll you careen the tube in a bobsled. Fly the ski jump. Or choreograph an entire figure skating routine. You'll flip over the hot dog aerials. And beg for mercy in the Biathlon. And coming next summer, our newest Games program. (Better get ready to hit the beach.)

    Now, it may seem like a lot to handle.

    But don't let world events get the best of you.
