the banker always cheats


I wonder what the pieces look like in MonopoBug? I bet that instead of the plain old boot, top hat and race car, they all have antennae. Or they’re all weaponry.

I think those are reasonable assumptions based on my observation of bugg life.


We view Mr and Mrs Bugg from above, lying on the floor around a board game. It is square (although perspective is making it look rectangular) and is banded by blocks that represent streets like St. Bugg Place and Buggtucky Avenue, along with the Bugg and O Railroad, Bugg Line, the Electric Bugg and Waterbugg Works. It is impossible to tell from the drawing who is cheating.

The text reads: “Novembug 6, 1935 : Parker Buggers acquires the patent for the board game MonopoBug.”
