Can you guess the theme?

enter image description here

OK, feel free to reverse image search, it's been many days now.

Slight Tip:

I expect this kind of knowledge to be more common among people born in the 80s.

Tip 1:

H=0x, Green=1x, 2=2x, Red=Denied

Tip 2:

One of the images should be considered in French

Last Tip:

It's about a board game.

  • $\begingroup$ I see a few loose connections between photos, but nothing that ties more than two or three of them together. Maybe a another hint is warranted? $\endgroup$

Here goes then....

This is a reference to Hasbro's board game "Hotels" (actually "Hotel" in some regions). Each picture refers to one of the game's hotel chains.

The first picture is a photo of Waikiki, a neighbourhood in Honolulu.

The second picture is a photo of the volcano Fujiyama.

In the third picture, the indegenous man is holding a Boomerang.

The crown in the fourth picture is a symbol of Royalty.

Fifth picture, a star - L'etoile in French.

In the sixth picture you can see two Presidents.

In the seventh picture, people are on a Safari.

The last picture is a depiction of Mumtaz Mahal, the tomb of whom is the Taj Mahal.

With these, all hints are covered except #2, which refers to the game's build-permission die, which allows you to built for free with H, normal price with green, double price with 2, and forbids you to build with red.
