I hope this forum isn't strictly limited to the print medium. A couple of weeks ago, there was a board-game-related story on NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! about a game of Monopoly that's still going after 10 years. If it helps, it was Paula Poundstone's story -- a bona fide comic.

For those unfamiliar with the show, it has a game show format. In this segment, each of the three panelists tell a story and the caller/contestant tries to pick the true one.
