Tropes in Popular Culture

Merriam-Webster defines trope as "a figure of speech". For creative writer types, tropes are more about conveying a concept to the audience without needing to spell out all the details. So what are popular tropes and why are they popular?

Game: Spyfall

Spyfall is a party game unlike any other, one in which you get to be a spy and try to understand what's going on around you.

Spyfall is played over several rounds, and at the start of each round all players receive cards showing the same location — a casino, a traveling circus, a pirate ship, or even a space station — except that one player receives a card that says "Spy" instead of the location. Players then start asking each other questions — "Why are you dressed so strangely?" or "When was the last time we got a payday?" or anything else you can come up with — trying to guess who among them is the spy. The spy doesn't know where he is, so he has to listen carefully. When it's his time to answer, he'd better create a good story!
