Mystery Science Theater 3000: MOON ZERO TWO   Rewatch 
April 15, 2020 10:12 PM - Season 1, Episode 11 - Subscribe

Rewatch! On Thursday [4/16]: It's class warfare on the moon! A working-day moon savager is hired by rich-guy "Hundred Percent" Hubbard to help them crash a meteor made of gemstone on the moon. Problem is, the plot on which they crash is already claimed by a miner, Wild West style. Nefarious schemes are afoot up there in no-atmosphere zero-G. An okay movie made ridiculous by things like scantily-clad moon dancers and a board game called (groan) "Moonopoly." It's still Season One, but the riffing has improved a lot by this point. Three more episodes until Season Two! Previously.

I think this is the episode that one of the writers (Kevin?) said he had zero memory of.

Yep, that's in the Amazing Colossal Episode Guide entry (quoted in previous post) on the movie. I think it's one of the better Season One episodes, but is often forgotten about.

Apparently I was wrong during the chat and Moonopoly is about the only Monopoly variant Hasbro has not yet produced.

A google image search suggests that people are divided between whether Moonopoly should be a moon-themed game, or cow-themed game.
