Shouldn't you be playing a game with me instead of wasting time on the Internet?

While adding my collection to the Geek, I noticed there was a subtle product placement in the "happy people on the same side of the table" picture on the back of one of the games.

Who else has seen a product placement on/in/for a game? Be sure to identify where you saw it and why it might be there.

Paid placement?

I recognise the lable on the bottles of tea. I think they were available in one of the chain book stores.

Not products per se, but the most used logos/company names ever in a boardgame I've played. In fact, I think the kickback from said companies for using their logos is the only way this game publisher could have made money on this stinker!

At the bottom of one of the graves in Dawn Under (not in this picture, however), you'll find a copy of Villa Paletti, another Zoch game.

Similar to Risky Business above. There are 50 properties altogether, and all were owned locally (depending on what city's edition you had) back in 1978 or so.

Zoch does it again in Pick Picknic, where the "game hens" (lower right hand corner in the pic) are sitting on top of other Zoch games, the bottom one looks like Chicken Cha Cha Cha.

The whole point behind this edition was a joint marketing venture with a model train company.
