In conjunction with the 2008 Licensing International Expo, a recent announcement by Hasbro provides some information on a number of its licensing arrangements (some of which had already been made public). Hasbro explains that its Trivial Pursuit: America Plays television game show will have a home audience participation component. Viewers will be able to submit questions for contestants. And if a selected question stumps the contestants, the viewer who submitted it will earn cash.

The announcement also reports that in addition to the already released digital versions of Monopoly, Hasbro’s partner, EA, will soon be taking Monopoly to the Wii, Playstation 2, and Xbox 360. Other video games under development include Scrabble, Yahtzee, Trivial Pursuit, and Operation.

Outside of electronics, apparently Monopoly is the most licensed brand worldwide for lotteries. And deals are in place for a new compact Scrabble travel game by L.L. Bean, Monopoly trivia books, and appearances by Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Taboo, and Twister on grocery products (in conjunction with upcoming movies).
