Monopoly Loses a Token, Adds a Token

Monopoly,  arguably the most widely known board game ever,  has made some big changes.   Monopoly fans from over 120 countries voted on which of the original pieces will be eliminated and which new token will be added to new versions of the board game.  The choices for new pieces were a guitar, a robot, a cat, a helicopter and a diamond ring.   And the winner is…The Cat.

The Iron (my favorite piece) is the token that will be eliminated.

Ok here’s my problem.  The Iron was my favorite piece because of the game play not because of cuteness of the piece.  The Dog, which got the most votes as favorite token always falls down!  You can just slide the Iron along the spaces and if you’re really good at it, you can slide it and make it land perfectly on Community Chest.

The new piece, the cat, will fall down as much as the dog does!  Neither piece are practical in playing the game.  I’m very disappointed.  How do you feel?  Did you vote for the Iron? What’s your favorite Monopoly piece?

Iron,  I will miss you.  Long Live the Iron!!
