Follow the Leader: Easy Money by Milton Bradley. Officially, both games are based on an older game called The Landlord's Game, but Easy Money was released as a direct response to Monopoly's success. Continues to be published, under license, by a third party company.
Technology Marches On: The main reason behind the creation of the "Electronic Banking" editions of the game, which replace the now-iconic paper monopoly money with four debit cards and a card reader. Because who uses cash these days?
Trope Namer: This board game has named the following tropes:
Missing Episode: No 13th episode was taped. Instead, ABC paired the last episode of Super Jeopardy! with the debut of America's Funniest People (which had found ratings success with its aired pilot on May 1).
Old Shame: The 1989 pilot featured Patty Maloney playing the part of Uncle Pennybags and basically being a living token who moved per the dice rolls. The series replaced her with lights on the board.
What Could Have Been: Marc Summers and Peter Tomarken are two well-respected emcees, and they were in 1990. The success of Double Dare meant that Marc was busy elsewhere, though, and Peter's clash with producers over Patty's role being treated as a thing rather than a person meant that he was gone as well.
