Super Cool Custom Board Game (made by me)

What is this, you say?

I made a custom Monopoly game based off the Zoosk dating app (I worked at Zoosk for several years.). I mapped the squares on the board to features within Zoosk, and most of the artwork was taken from the Zoosk web app. But for the Community Chest and Chance cards, I had to create some original art. Replacing Uncle Pennybags in my version was Heartfriend. Heartfriend was a character our marketing department invented for our ads. He was an animatronic puppet, and I adapted him as a cartoon character in my game. Below are some of the cards that feature my original illustrations of our retired mascot (plus some completely made-up lady friends).
