TV shows love to take existing games and add their own spin. Problem is, the creative process seems to end with the production of the TV show, and doesn't appear to extend to game development. So what we get are endless co-branded variations of Monopoly, The Game of Life, Uno, etc. There are better choices out there! Name the game(s) your favorite TV show(s) should borrow and co-brand!

If Bravo ever wants to produce a game to go with their Project Runway series, this is it! Just substitute photos of the contest's garments and you've got a hit with the viewers! Heck, it's even got an "out" card, allowing you to do your best Heidi Klum immitation when you play it.

In fashion "you're either in or you're out", and for Bravo's Project Runway, this game would be IN! cool

Much as I love a good game of trendy, when I think of retheming games for television I think of retheming BGG biggies. So my suggestion would be to make something like PR into, oh, I don't know - how about the Firefly game (I know it's cancelled)? Just change the roles into characters, the buildings into ship parts, and the goods into various things they might smuggle. Viola.

My husband suggested rebranding that dot-com classic "Burn Rate" for anything representing "The Apprentice". After all, the game already contains elements of high employee turnover and Really Bad money-wasting project ideas, so what else would you really need to change?

I'll bet if NASCAR licensed this game, they'd make a butt-load of money, and a lot of us gamers would be happy, too!

I always thought The X-Files should have co-branded Illuminati. Imagine having the opportunity to find out who CSM is really working for--
