The Op, formerly known as USAopoly, the undisputed master of IP integration, has collected yet another pop culture icon into their coffers, and he lives in a pineapple under the sea. The Op has announced a new partnership with SpongeBob SquarePants along with two games taking full advantage thereof.  Trivial Pursuit: SpongeBob SquarePants will test every fan’s knowledge of the popular Nickelodeon cartoon with over 600 questions in categories such as Songs, Characters, Locations and more. SpongeBob: Plankton Rising will take the proven format of Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity Wars and apply it to the SpongeBob universe. In this cooperative card and dice game, 1-4 players take on the familiar roles of SpongeBob, Patrick, or Squidward to take on the evil Plankton. And for those in the know, the giant statue in this edition is a Plankton Chum Bucket. The Op has previously made versions of their Rising games with Harry Potter: Death Eaters Rising and Star Wars: Dark Side Rising. For more details, check out the press release from The Op here.
