In addition to the films, television series, and various literature based on the Friday the 13th franchise, there are over 100 licensed products that have grossed more than $125 million in revenue.[56] In May 1986, Domark released a Friday the 13th game for the Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, and ZX Spectrum. The plot involved the player picking a "sanctuary" on a map, and then trying to persuade other teenagers to go hide there. Jason is "disguised as a friend" until he decides to attack the player.[134] Three years later, LJN developed a game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.[135] In the 2000s, Xendex developed their own Friday the 13th game, this time for mobile phones. In the game, the player takes the role of one of the staff members at Camp Crystal Lake. While the staff is preparing the camp for its first summer weekend an "unknown stalker" begins murdering each of them. The player must discover the truth and escape the camp alive.[136] There was also a Friday the 13th board game released in the United Kingdom, which contained "blood capsules that you crunch in your mouth to create home-made special effects".[137]
Over the years, the characters of Friday the 13th have been marketed under various toy lines. In 1988, Screamin' toys produced a model kit of Jason Voorhees.[138] Six years later, Screamin' toys issued a second model kit based on Jason′s appearance in Jason Goes to Hell. Both kits are no longer in production.[139] In 1998, as part of McFarlane Toys′s Movie Maniacs 1 collection, a figure of Jason from Jason Goes to Hell was released.[140] Jason was one of the three most popular figures sold from Movie Maniacs 1 collection, and the other two were Freddy Krueger and Leatherface.[141] The following year, 6 in (150 mm) scale models of Jason and Freddy in a glass display case were released by MacFarlane Toys.[142] In 2002, as part of its Movie Maniacs 5 collection, McFarlane released a model of Über-Jason from Jason X.[143] McFarlane did not release another Friday the 13th collectable until November 2006, when a 3-dimensional movie poster was released.[144] Since 2002, there has been a steady production of action figures, dolls, and statuettes, with more merchandise tying into the film Freddy vs. Jason.[145]
Apart from video games and toys, the series has also seen the release of its films' soundtracks, which consist of the musical scores created by Harry Manfredini and Fred Mollin. In 1982, Gramavision Records released a LP album of selected pieces of music from the first three films.[146]
