This series of realistic Monopoly cards takes the Monopoly moves that any board game player is familiar with, and turns them into relatable, real life situations.

The Monopoly cards are redesigned to fit the life of the modern millennial, depicting the trials and tribulations of being a young person struggling with debt, living up to family expectations and navigating the murky waters of the Internet. For example, the card that in the classic Monopoly game says, "Advance token to boardwalk" says "Collect terrible t-shirt with outdated Internet reference on it." Another card lets players discard all their 'Chance' cards, "to better accommodate their social anxiety."

This funny series of realistic Monopoly cards is exemplary of millennial humor, which often involves parody and irony, and seeks to deal with the challenges of modern life with a slightly woeful brand of hilarity.
