The game Monopoly is taking over Chicago, thanks to an unknown street artist who uses the name “bored.”

This stack of Community Chest cards — complete with a pair of dice — was found in the city’s Logan Square. The cards were reportedly stuck to each other as well as to the sidewalk to prevent anyone from stealing them.

Its message — “Error on Bar Tab” — had changed, according to some online commenters, from “Go to Jail” for some not-so-good behavior.

Other works of art include a deck of Chance cards with a marriage proposal for “Carissa”; a property space for Albany Avenue, complete with two houses; as well as a Luxury Tax block.

Adam Nowek of The Pop-Up City, an online magazine from Amsterdam, called the exhibit “a heart-warming intervention that reminds us of our childhoods and adds some much-needed fun and humour to our sidewalks.”
