A well-known board game gets a special edition based on a work of fiction
First, some background. The Board Game was brought to TRS as a horrible, negative trope (which it is). The current plan is to move the description to Darth Wiki, and put a new, neutral description in its place, about board games based on other works. (It may or may not be renamed as well.) However, we noted that there really seem to be two categories of games here: original games based on a work, and "themed" versions of well-known games like Monopoly & Risk. They seemed different enough to justify a new trope. So, here we are.
The Merch. One option, if your franchise is big enough, is to team up with the companies that make board games, to make a special themed version of an existing game--typically a well-known game, like Monopoly or Clue(do) or Risk. It's a guaranteed sale to the hard-core collectors of the show's merch and of the game, and it's also a likely sale to fans of the show who happen to like the game. Everybody wins. The most commonly themed stock board games are: Chess, Monopoly, Clue (aka Cluedo), Risk, and Stratego. In most cases, the theme is only skin-deep. The pieces may look like the show's characters (in Chess, this is usually the only change), the squares on the board may be renamed, and the cards may have new artwork, but all have basically the same value and serve the same purpose as in the original game. In a few cases, new rules may be added to the game to reflect the theme, making a somewhat new game. This is particularly common with versions of Risk, which usually also have all-new maps. If you add an example of a game that has new rules, please feel free to mention that fact. Subtrope of The Merch. When they make a whole new board-game instead of recycling an old one, that's The Board Game. When they make a Video Game instead, that's Licensed Game. When they make tarot cards, it's Themed Tarot Deck.
