Is this irony?

Two weeks ago I was researching Monopoly for my Scientists in Schools talk to kids about game design, so I could present its history and explain why it’s such a crap game.

Last night I was at my regional Primary Ethics end of year dinner and trivia night. (We didn’t know it at the time, but) going into the last question my team was 21 points and another team was 21.5 points. Last question: “Elizabeth Magie–”

I immediately wrote down “Monopoly”.

“–invented which popular board game?”

We won by half a point.
