Monotony. Brenda Turner, 1984.

A clever parody of the board game Monopoly, Monotony relies on the stereotyping of a housewife’s lifestyle for its entertainment value. “The object of Monotony is survival.” Players manage husbands, dust balls, pets, grocery sacks and kids with “Obligation” and “Duty” cards, while coupons replace money.
