Been a while since we've had a board game, huh? This is gonna be the last one I can squeeze in before we hit that big one thousand, so I think it's only appropriate that we have a callback to the first boardgame played in the strip. Good times.

(Tues afternoon, INT: EB and JH's place, EB, JH and MH are all at the table, MH and JH are wearing each other's shirts)

JH: So, speaking of... uh... exchange...
EB: Were we doing that?
MH: Speaking of segueing awkwardly into the new boardgame that you gave us sandwiches to bribe us into playtesting...
JH: Yes, speaking of that. I was reading up about Monopoly recently.
EB: And how it sucks ass?
JH: Of course, of course... but do you know why it sucks ass?
EB: Because no one actually plays it properly?
MH: Because it was invented a million years ago before people knew how to boardgame good?
EB: Because the only people who enjoy forcibly driving their friends into bankruptcy are type-A jerkwads who no one enjoys playing with?
JH: All true, all true, but more importantly... Monopoly was originally designed to suck.
MH: Ah yes, the ol' "make something intentionally shitty and somehow sell a million copies of it" trick. Gets 'em every time.
