** ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' had them playing it in several strips, but with their own {{Calvinball}}-like rules. For example, Calvin once robbed the bank, causing Hobbes to dump all 12 hotels on Baltic Avenue. Another time, we find out that they write their own cards for the game. Hobbes launches a massive online scam on the bank ("I think I'll buy a few dozen hotels"), and Calvin vows revenge once ''he'' lands on Chance. God only knows what horrors the other cards hold. Viral contagions? Meteor strikes?
