Save your favorite Monopoly token! (giveaway ends 2/6/13)


Have you heard the news? Monopoly is going to retire one our their  classic game tokens (player pieces) and introduce a new one. That means that your favorite, such as the Scottie dog or race car might disappear from Monopoly games FOREVER and be replaced by something like a robot or guitar.

I have been playing Monopoly for as long as I can remember. I used to spend the summers with my favorite cousin Cindy and we would play Monopoly all the time. Sometimes it was an all day game too.

My favorite Monopoly piece is the Scottie dog. I’m an animal lover so it seems only natural that I would go for that one first and foremost. The race car was also a favorite of mine. Sadly I don’t think the iron or thimble got much love. 🙁

Did you know there was a Battleship token? I have never seen that before. I wonder when that piece was available. Perhaps before my time.

Sadly the fate of eight classic Monopoly tokens rests in the hands of Monopoly fans from around the world.

Here are the classic tokens. One of them will be replaced for good. But which one will it be?


Monopoly is going to replace one of the classic tokens with one of the new designs – cat, robot, guitar, helicopter or diamond ring. Personally I like the cat but I’m not sure if they want a cat and a dog on the same game board. That could lead to trouble. LOL!
