The end of an era is coming! Monopoly is retiring one of the classics tokens in the game of Monopoly and replacing it with a new one. Personally, if I were an iron or thimble I would be worried about now. Those always seemed to be the least popular with my friends and family.

Monopoly Battleship     Monopoly Hat  Monopoly Iron   Monopoly Racecar

Monopoly Dog    Monopoly Shoe     Monopoly Thimble    Monopoly Wheelbarrow

The token being removed will be replaced with one of these new tokens. I am very partial to the cat although the robot is pretty cute too.

Monopoly has always been one of my favorite games. I remember playing often at my neighbors as a kid. They had a great round table in the basement where we hung out and it was perfect for playing board games. Monopoly was probably the game we played most by far. I always tried getting the dog token back then, but so did my friends – that was always the best token we thought. We would hang out at night and have some popcorn and play Monopoly for a couple of hours and just laugh and have a lot of fun. I don’t play Monopoly as often these days – although I do love the Monopoly app on my tablet – very cool graphics! I think I’m going to have to have a Monopoly party at my house soon!
